Hello.
I have encountered some problems with probe screen V2 from the very beginning.
12:45:30  Error: EOF in file:/usr/share/axis/images/axis.ngc seeking o-word: o<xplus> from line: 0 
12:45:10  Error: Named parameter #<_ini[toolsensor]rapid_speed> not defined 
I have defined the missing variable manually via MDI to try and progress. I was able to work around this issue but a proper solution would be appreciated. I then googled for the next issue and found that removing '%' from nc files could fix it but the problem is there's no '%' in ANY of them!
Is there anyone who can try and help me fix it? Thanks in advance.

LinuxCNC/AXIS version 2.7.14

Cheers,
Bushman

You need to add the entries to the INI file.
[TOOLSENSOR]
RAPID_SPEED = 100
For example.
You might also need to enable INI file access from G-code:
linuxcnc.org/docs/2.8/html/config/ini-co...sec:rs274ngc-section
[RS274NGC]
FEATURES = 12

It is added as per installation instructions.
You think the [RS274NGC] thing might help?


EDIT:
this is already in .ini
[RS274NGC]
FEATURES=30

After further inspection I've noticed I have doubled the [RS274NGC] section.
I have moved all the entries to the first one and removed the second one.
This has solved the previous issues.

andypugh, thank you for your input.

Unfortunately i've run into another issue. My probe isn't working.
Let me explain: the mechanical probe works just fine, the digital input also...
but for some reason axis no longer reacts to the probe being tripped, neither the probe screen.
My probe is defined in .hal as follows:
net probe-in        <= parport.0.pin-12-in-not
Complete .hal file:
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Any ideas?

You need another "end" to your probe signal.
net probe-in motion.probe-in

andypugh, thanks for your help. I in fact was missing that line in the config. :pinch: I have no idea how it got removed since it IS present in the source config which I used (and tested beforehand) for this installation. I have added this line back and the probe is operational again! ;)

The probe screen works like a charm now. Thank you! :)

I was testing this routine about 3 months ago and had to disable it because it was messing with normal functionality in LinuxCNC. I don't remember now what specific issue it was causing but it sounds like you guys have been doing more work so I'm happy to also test it again. I love this little routine but it just had a few issues when I was last testing it. So where do I get the updated code for it? Is this original download at the top of this thread being updated or do I get it elsewhere?

Yeah I checked that before my question ...should have said this to save you guys the time. But the newest update to that v2 project I see is 4 months ago. Yet you're all talking about changes (bugs & fixes) still late June.

So after one downloads the v2 project from github, is there a concise list of updates/fixes that should be applied? There seems to be some manual things you guys were discussing to fix problems with the routine.
