Hello John,

Thats great, good to have all the info here in one place on the forum.

Should...

NGCGUI_SUBFILE = ""

be added to the list of subfiles to add the custom tab?

Now open your ini file and add the following to the [DISPLAY] section.

USER_COMMAND_FILE = tkapp.py
TKAPP = ngcgui_app.tcl
NGCGUI = ngcgui.tcl
NGCGUI_FONT = Courier -10 normal
NGCGUI_PREAMBLE = ./subroutines/in_std.ngc
NGCGUI_SUBFILE = ./subroutines/simp.ngc
NGCGUI_SUBFILE = ./subroutines/iquad.ngc
NGCGUI_SUBFILE = ./subroutines/gosper.ngc

NGCGUI_SUBFILE = ""

Hi Rick,

It can be if you want it. I was just trying to get the minimal up and going but that is a good addition even if I don't know exactly what it does ATM.

Can you use a desktop shortcut to launch emc with ncgui embedded with 2.6 RIP?
Special location for files?

Rick,

I use a desktop shortcut to run 2.5 with ngcgui embedded in. I do it a couple of ways, one using a script to run emc-environment and the other way is just to put the full path to the RIP emc script then the full path to your config.

John,

one using a script to run emc-environment

That seems to work best for me.

Thanks

Hi,

I want to ask where is the file "tkapp.py" ?
Because I've downloaded ngcgui_tst and can't find that file
Thanks..

Which version of emc are you using, I beleive you will only use it in 2.4.

Yep.

You might want to look here...

If you are upgrading from 2.4 there are some changes.
You can run it stand alone or embedded.
