you might try to grind that cat differently

pull master, and take the MDI Command action in a gladevcp panel. There's an example in the gladevcp docs to do this.

While that builds, have a look at the docs here: emc.mah.priv.at/docs-gladevcp/html/gui/g...an_o_word_subroutine

I have just tried your example, with master and v2.5_branch, and it works fine for me (simulator mode, but fairly sure it should work fine on rt)

You might try a recent buildbot build from here: buildbot.linuxcnc.org/

What version of EMC are you running? 2.5?
There were problems with subs on some of the earlier versions.

Sorry, that should have been in the posts. I'm on 2.4.6 which was the last build that came through the auto-update system on Ubuntu.

I'm assuming that there must be some sort of bug here because it only goes bad when called as a subroutine. In every other situation it works a peach.

It was fixed in 2.5
2.4 series does not allow calling M66 and lot of other codes from O-subs in MDI mode

LOL! Nothing like chasing your tail.


Well, it was a neat idea. I changed the interface last night and setup buttons for the 4 corners I can touch to with the common +/-0.100" offset hard coded. The back-left is then shared with my Logitech pendant buttons. That's the most common touch off scenario for me. I added buttons to zero X,Y, and Z in place as well for zeroing on a bore or hole. I have a couple spin boxes to set that offset later when I go to 2.5

I'd be a little nervous to use the development release although I expect it's probably fairly stable now. If you guys think that it's pretty safe then I guess I could go on and setup apt-get to pull that one. I just got my pyVCP implementation working so I'm not exactly aching to change that all up now.

2.5 is close to release, 2.6 is the new bleeding-edge version. I have been using 2.5 for several months, and it is just as stable as 2.4, but with extra features.

Cool. I'll go on then and pull 2.5. Any gotchas or is just simply adding it to the config and apt-get? Do you need to upgrade anything else in Ubuntu to get there?

Not that I am aware of. I am running 2.5 on what started off as a 2.3 live-CD install. However, I did compile it there, as I tinker with a bit of emc2 development.

I too went from 2.3 to 2.5 with no problem, for the same reason you may need to.
