The first thing I would do is to move the ngc files to your config directory. This is ngcgui section of my ini file on my Hardine that is running 2.5

Oh, that line EMBED_TAB_COMMAND is one long line...

John,
Thanks for posting your example....I originally followed instructions from another of your earlier posts and created a subroutine directory and placed the .ngc files within it...pointed the .ini to that subdirectory to no avail...That subdirectory still exists, I changed my ini to point to it again and edited the other appropriate files and copied the .tcl files to ~/emc2 as well as left them in the .configs subdirectory...This is still not seeing these files and subdirectories...I am stumped...Below is a copy of the pertinent Display section...

Unfortunately, nothing I have tried, and I have tried everything I can think of for last two days seems to work...

Thanks again John

How did you upgrade to 2.5?

Oh I see you used synaptic...

If you comment out all the ngcgui parts does Axis load and show you 2.5 on the title bar?

John,

Yes sir, it does show 2.5 on the title bar...
What are your thoughts?

There is a certain point in the life of 2.5 where the built in TKAPP is supported Dec 27, 2010 to be exact. I wonder if your copy is before that? Try the example for 2.4 and see if that works.

John,
I added the following from the 2.4 instructions:

USER_COMMAND_FILE = ./tkapp.py

No Joy....Axis did not break either...

Right now I am wondering if it might be better to un-install emc2 then reinstall...

Did you copy tkapp.py to your config directory?

John,
copied .tkapp.py into the config directory....no joy again....I don't know if it is interesting or not, but nothing I have done has borked Axis...it just seems to always start...

Create an intentional error in your config.hal file and see if it still loads.

Like

net my bad error that will never run
