Just for info this patch is now in EMC 2.5
for Touchy and gladevcp.

here is the modified blue-joy theme too (red buttons)
should switch the rest of the controls red too I guess.

well its too big so I'll have to add it to the wiki

Building a screen for linuxcnc is a fairly daunting task.
The way I have started (look for gscreen on this forum) was to build a screen with gladeVCP.

You'll need to know Python learn about GLADE and GTK and then all the linuxcnc stuff.
You need to learn a bit of GIT (version control) and download the linuxcnc's source code.

While Touchy uses GLADE and GTK to build it's screen it doesn't lend it's self to easy modification.
It doesn't directly support gladeVCP widgets
Though I used lots of the underlaying code in gscreen.

Play with GLADE and see if you can build a screen close to what you want.
find a GTK theme that is close to the look you want.
and Don't expect the core developers being too interested in being like MACH :)

ive installed glade using the guide in www.linuxcnc.org/docview/devel/html/gui/gladevcp.html but somehow i seem to not get HAL Python and EMC Actions on mine any way to find out what went wrong and how to do this?

What im thinking might be the problem would propably be
"If LinuxCNC was not installed from a package, the LinuxCNC shell environment needs to be set up with . <emcdir>/scripts/rip-environment, otherwise glade won’t find the LinuxCNC-specific widgets."

learned how to add pyvcp but they are so limited in the actions i want it to work in.. want to use increments and slide bars and flashing buttons( last one is a hope for E-stop button)

did you compile linuxcnc? You must be using 2.5 or master
If you did open a terminal cd to that linuxcnc folder and type
. scripts/emc-environment
then type glade

some HAL glade things don't work in Ubuntu 8.04 but it should still work otherwise.
