I pushed a fix to 2.8 branch!

So now even if it makes no sense in identity kinematics you will get the joints button if kintype BOTH is found in the INI.

A better solution is a correct INI file ;-)

Thanks so now how do I get the fix?
Updating linuxcnc from Synaptics or commandline?

If you installed from buildbot you will get the patch within a few days, if you installed from a CD it might need some more time as a new build has to be made, if you installed from source, just pull the latest 2.8 release and recompile.

So basically this fix makes buttons work if ini file is not correct?
So to have a useful machine you have to get the ini file correct anyway?

Exactly,
if you have a trivial kinematics, so one joint is one axis and all are ordered in kartesian coordination, it does not make sense to have joint jogging, that is why I decided not to show joint jogging buttons if INI sayes trivkins.

I did not take care about someone who added kinstype=Both. This entry forces the GUI now to show the joints button, even if does not make sense at all. If the user press a joint button of Joint1 being y1 he will get an error, as it is not allowed to jog only one side of an gantry.

By the way, if you do not have any jog button and you home your machine, you will see, that the axis jog button do appear like a miracle
So this an unneeded fix just to not disturb the users.
