I mean I want to pull the GUI from pp and use it on a normal install of linuxcnc.

Just keeping the GUI design and capabilities. Create another axis;gmoccapy or gscreen.

Hi.

I for one would like a how-to on how to add full functionality to PathPilot. I'm currently converting my benchtop lathe to CNC with PathPilot and I need to be able to compile toggle2nist to be able to add physical buttons. Or do anyone have a working toggle2nist they would share? I'm currently running 2.0.2.

Br,
Stig

toggle2nist is a standard component.

try typing man toggle2nist and you should get the manual page.

In LinuxCNC it's probably correct, in PathPilot it's not. PathPilot comes with a rather crippled version of LinuxCNC, especially PP2.

Well just go to LinuxCNC on github and pull down the comp file and type halcompile --install toggle2nist.comp
Check the docs, you may need to install linuxcnc-dev first.

To enable full functionality in PP you need to code the GUI to do so not the other way around.
The underlying LinuxCNC has only the functionality Tormach wants to support for their machines which from a product support point of view is the correct decision. They had no desire to become a linuxcnc support group and deal with all the varied things you could do in LinuxCNC and screw up your Tormach and expect them to fix it.

Adding a full LimuxCNC under PP is the easy part. there's only a few tormach specific modules to worry about.
The problem is you have to add any/all LinuxCNC functionality you want to the PP GUI, that's the hard part.

The easier approach is to ask what do you want to add then you look at how to add it instead of trying to do everything.

I tried this. As soon as I installed the full linuxcnc package PP stopped working. I think the kernel or something gets changed. Kinda over my head.
