Embedded and language issue

Hi,

two things are a little annoying when using NativeCAM embedded into gmoccapy.
On every startup an error message pops up "Can't switch to auto mode" or sth. Of course not, because the machine is not enabled or homed. Is it possible for NativeCAM to be configured in a way, that it only load the generated code when linuxcnc is homed?

Secondly I have some weird translation issue - some parts of NativeCAM are translated to german, but really not in the good way. :-) Is there some configuration to keep native cam in english?

Thanks for any tips!
Regards,
Daniel

Hi,

As superuser, delete /usr/share/locale/de/LC_MESSAGES/nativecam.mo

I will see what can be done for gmoccapy

I just found that linuxcnc.stat has a parameter specially to test what axis are homed. It should be possible to add what you ask in the next version

I know it is a long time ago, but if anyone is still interested: a (somewhat crude) solution is to add the following at line 4222 of ncam.py:
        s = linuxcnc.stat()
	s.poll()
	if not s.axis[0]['homed'] or not s.axis[2]['homed']:
	    return False
	if not self.pref.cat_name == 'lathe': #do not ask for axis 1 if lathe
            if not s.axis[1]['homed']:
                return False
I verified it in a machinekit environment.

Hi all,

I am trying to work on the translation besides some software changes, but I struggle with Poedit and updating from sources.
If I just update the catalogue in poedit, it will drop to 216 words compared to ~1000 which it should find. It seems the .cfg-files are not parsed at all.
Does anyone know how to update the .po-file so it includes the required ncam files?

Regards,
Daniel

All done, worked out a way for poedit 2 with custom extractor. Now I can work on the german translation.
