All,

I want to start playing with Gscreen on a touchscreen, using a computer I use for testing and debugging Gcode. Eventually hope to use it on a knee mill. Currently, I mostly use Touchy and sometimes Axis.

I have Linuxcnc 2.5 already installed on the test computer, and plan to set up a different partition to build and use Gscreen. Is it better to install Linuxcnc from the live CD to the new partition, or install Ubuntu 10.04 and then install LInuxcnc?

Thanks
Karl

I would install 10.04 then use buildbot to get master (Gscreen requires master)

Others may have more experience with the easiest way to get it downloaded and updated.

Chris,

Thanks for the advice. Using the buildbot sounds like a good way. Unfortunately I didn't see your message until I was into it a ways.

I installed 10.04, used the linuxcnc install script, grabbed master via git, and it all built just fine. Now to work on configuration.

There are sample configs under sim/gscreen and sim/gscreen_custom.
And info on the wiki and of course ask questions here.

Feedback is welcome too.

I have keyboard so it pop open and closed. I still need to change the layout and colors.

The DRO is for Fanuc style not sure if thats an improvement or not.

I'm thinking I could put the G and M code as a vertical list under the DRO - again more Fanuc style.

I see I could spend a lot of time making screens for people :)

If your final design will have the notebook tabs you might consider putting an empty line in the tab label to make the tabs taller.

Vertical screen space is at a premium that's why I haven't.
You can select them with the large 'menu' button at the lower right.

Quit thinking like a computer user and think like a cnc operator :)
Tabs are for info not selection :) I originally was going to hide the tabs completely but it is handy to see what's available...

In reality it's an easy customisation to make - I'll try it out...
