Hi,

i have a problem to with my new XHC-WHB04B-4. Mayby anyone is able to help me.
I did the following steps:

i compiled:

git clone github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc linuxcnc-dev
cd linuxcnc-dev
cd src
./autogen.sh
./configure --with-realtime=uspace
make
sudo make setuid

with no errors.

than copy the BIN-File XHC-WHB04B-6
from /linuxcnc-dev/bin/
to /usr/bin/

I make a rule. in etc/udev/rules.d/
ATTR{idProduct}=="eb93", ATTR{idVendor}=="10ce", MODE="0666", OWNER="root", GROUP="plugdev"

Than I run halrun in Terminal:

loadusr xhc-whb04b-4
....nothing happens...
only on the display from mpg switch all coordinates to zero...

If i run:

loadusr xhc-whb04b-4 -ec


then following message appeared in the terminall:

transmission failed, try to reconnect ...
transmission failed, try to reconnect ...
xhc-whb04b-6: hal/user_comps/xhc-whb04b-6/xhc-whb04b6.cc:526: void XhcWhb04b6::XhcWhb04b6Component::process(): Assertion `(0 == r) || (r == LIBUSB_ERROR_NO_DEVICE)' failed.

But if i press some buttons or twist the encoderwheel than comes some datas..

My problem ist thet LinuxCNC dont start. Debug information in attachment

Have you try to do : sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/xhc-whb04b-6 ?

Have you try to see what report lsusb ?

Hi,

i use buildbot instal.
I try:
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/xhc-whb04b-6
but nothing happend.

lsusb list the dongel with the right adress:
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 10ce:eb93 Silicon Labs

I guess somehow the access rigth are not right. But im not sure. My linux skills are very low.
It amazes me that with the command "loadusr xhc-whb04b-6" nothing happend but if i run "loadusr xhc-whb04b-6 -ec" than data are transmit.

If you use fres buildbot you don't need to compil driver yourself (already included)

Maybee they are conflict with ~./source/bin and /usr/bin
you can try to open 2 terminal :
first :
halrun
loadusr -W xhc-whb04b-6 -Hsf

second :
watch -n0.4 halcmd show pin whb.*

nothing happends with
loadusr -W xhc-whb04b-6 -Hsf. No chance.

I installed buildbot new. Now with stretch not wheezy. I used the included driver.
and it works with:
halrun
loadusr -W xhc-whb04b-6 -Hsf
exclude the handwheel.
LinuxCNC starts.
The buttons have a function, exclude the handwheel.

You need to push Step or Con for mpg selection

default mode is feedrate override

Thank you very much. This was very helpfull.
It would be great if all this could be automated somehow, or included standard in linuxcnc. I followed all these steps, and it works, but now, I need to do a few more machines, and this process takes very long, and a lot of steps.

Hi

The driver is now integrated in 2.8 and 2.9

I think the job is done for only needed to do with a buildbot instal :
Add the exemple hal file in your config folder (use exemple from src folder on github rename as you want and add the named file in your ini HAL section + add the correspondent MDI command)

Unfortunatly the file does not display correctly on the github viewer but open this one on your linux computer should work fine
github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/tree/master...r_comps/xhc-whb04b-6

help inside the exemple file :
#//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
### Example edit your ini and add :
#
#[HAL]
#HALFILE = <your-machine-hal>.hal
#HALFILE = xhc-whb04b-6.hal
#
## This section is for button mapping, you need to create for your own use.
#[HALUI]
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro0)
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro1)
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro2)
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro3)
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro4)
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro5)
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro6)
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro7)
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro8)
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro9)
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro10)
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro11)
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro12)
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro13)
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro14)
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro15)
#MDI_COMMAND=(debug,macro16)

The rest of the file is the HAL file and is ready to use with comon setup (i hope)

I suggest to all to not use this exemple but use the file from github !

I suggest to all to not use this exemple but use the file from github !

The exemple file is for 3 axis ! if you need to use with Lathe you need to edit and remove Y relevant line
If you need to use 4 axis or more you need to copy past and edit for put the other axes.
I have do some effort for make a ready to use exemple file but everybody are welcome for enhance this driver.

Ps : if you are able to do this, i think your welcome for add this to stepconf and pnconf :laugh: :laugh:
