Hey,

I've got a question.
I want to control my CNC via my Keyboard. I'm using Linuxcnc 2.8 (Debian) but also had this problem under Linuxcnc 2.7....

The problem is that if I want to jog my actual selected axis. I can only jog in the negativ direction ( key " - "). The postiv direction does not work. In the Quickreference it should be key " = " but I also tried " + " and a lot of other key's. also when i set my keypadlayout to english it doesn't work.
I know that I can control my axis also with page up down and the arrowkeys or with the numpad. But thats not what I want.

Would be great if anyone can help me to solve this problem.

thank you very much for your help
greets
Jasper

What axes do you want to control (X,Y,Z, A, else)?
Does you want to control axes from PC keyboard?
Does your axes move correctly if you use software button from GUI?
What GUI do you use?

For Axis you can do a fair bit of customization by using .axisrc:

Is there absolutely no chance of installing an MPG, physical buttons or even an XHC-type thing.

The keyboard is the worst of all the ways that we allow the system to be controlled. (There is a very real risk of missing a keyup, for example. Ever had a key stick and keep typing the same letter until you tap it again?)

Hey thanks all for your support,

my idea was to use an arduino (Pro Micro) and use it as HID. So I can send the keys to Linux. I tried it an it worked quiet good. And it was very easy cause i only have to configure the arduino. Ofcause there are some problems and it can go wrong somthing
but sure there are better ways.
