I have encountered various weird issues since installing LinuxCNC 2.9.1 on my raspberry 4.
I have a previous thread about it here www.forum.linuxcnc.org/39-pncconf/50549-...nd-mesa-7i96?start=0 more related to PnCConf issues. I figure this is more gmoccappy related so a new thread seemed more reasonable.

Problem 1:
Everytime I edit a program, the window rescales/becomes bigger. After editing a program ~10 times, it's now so big I can't even reach the edit button.
After restarting LinuxCNC everything is back to normal and I can afford myself another ~10 edits.. Any idea what could cause this/how to fix?

Problem 2:
Everytime there's an error, I get an extra error window complaining that gmocapy can't find or can't play a sound. No idea where to even start troubleshooting this one.

Problem 3:
I have reoccuring issues switching from MDI to jog mode. It seems I get stuck in either.
I start LinuxCNC, enable machine and jogging works but I cannot type in MDI mode. I have to right click and then leftclick in MDI to be able to type anything at all. If I only leftclick it selects the field but it's like the keyboard doesn't work.
Once I can type in MDI, the jogging no longer work, even if I change to jogging or program screen/menu.
Only way to make jogging work again is to disable and enable the machine, which makes MDI not work. And around it goes...
Any ideas what could cause this, how to fix, where to look etc?

Any help is much appreciated!

Sound maybe disabled on the RPi.

If you look in the /boot/broadcom/config.txt you should find out pretty quick. If the path isn't correct poke around in the /boot directory, its in there somewhere.

As for the rest no idea.

Does Problem 1 also occur when you disable sound in the settings?

Problem 1 occurs even when sound is disabled in the LinuxCNC config/menu.
It occurs if window is full screen, maximized or "normal". Only thing I noticed is that if I maximize the window, it becomes "non-maximized" as soon as I click the edit button.
Let me try to attach a video of it:
Attachment doesn't show up but here's a direct link:


Problem 2 occurs even if I turn off sound in LinuxCNC menu.
I also checked the config.txt, only audo related I can find is this, which seems enabled:


Furthermore this is the error message:

Further issues has popped up with programs edited through gmoccapy becomes corrupt(my guess) and crashes/freezes LinuxCNC. Haven't managed to find any solutions to these so I've changed to AXIS which has run perfectly for several hours by now and doesn't give any errors.

Can you open such a currupt file with axis or with a text editor?

I can't quite remember but I think text editor was fine but Axis didn't like it. I removed all files I had created/used with gmoccapy and started anew.
So far maybe ~10h in with no issues so far, on axis.

Problem 3 I cannot reproduce. How do you jog? By keyboard or buttons on the display or something else?
Can you compare if it shows the same behavior with a sample config?
