It is possible to create a sim config from an existing table config provided that the table config was originally created by PnCconf by doing the following:
Make a copy of the existing config.
Copy the two attached files into the copied config.
Rename sim.tcl.hal to sim.tcl. (the forum doesn't like .tcl files)
Edit the [HAL] section of the copied .ini file so it looks like:
[HAL]
HALUI           = halui
TWOPASS         = ON
HALFILE         = sim.tcl
HALFILE         = custom.hal
POSTGUI_HALFILE = custom_postgui.hal
POSTGUI_HALFILE = sim.hal

Any HOME_SEARCH_VEL, HOME_LATCH_VEL, or HOME_FINAL_VEL settings that are negative will need to have the negative sign removed.
You should now be able to run the sim config.

If your original is a converted PlasmaC config then it may (or may not) work by commenting out or omiting the following two lines:
HALFILE         = custom.hal
POSTGUI_HALFILE = custom_postgui.hal

Note that if the user is moving to a new machine, or simulating another user's configuration, it will likely be necessary for the user to fix a broken symbolic link in the folder of the configuration to be simulated.

To do so:
In a terminal window, change to the directory that contains the configuration files.

For a package installation enter the following command:
ln -s /usr/share/doc/linuxcnc/examples/sample-configs/by_machine/qtplasmac/qtplasmac


For a Run In Place installation enter the following command:
ln -s ~/linuxcnc-dev/configs/by_machine/qtplasmac/qtplasmac/

Alternatively, the user could run this script (thanks to Phill for the reminder):

linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/plasma/qtpl...inuxcnc_installation

Any HOME_LATCH_VEL or HOME_FINAL_VEL settings that are negative will need to have the negative sign removed.


And HOME_SEARCH_VEL too

Oops, I missed that one, Thanks...
