[00:21:43] <seb_kuzminsky> ju-emb: it works for me... which branch are you on?
[00:26:16] <seb_kuzminsky> works for me in both 2.5 and master
[01:36:05] <KGB-linuxcnc> 03Sebastian Kuzminsky 05v2.5_branch 99bc7a8 06linuxcnc 10docs/src/Master_Developer.txt 10docs/src/Submakefile 03docs/src/code/Contributing-to-LinuxCNC.txt 10docs/src/index.tmpl docs: add docs on how to contribute to LinuxCNC * 14http://git.linuxcnc.org/?p=linuxcnc.git;a=commitdiff;h=99bc7a8
[01:37:15] <seb_kuzminsky> ooh, i like that kgb proffers a link to the commit now
[01:38:09] <seb_kuzminsky> i want that new document to replace the Git page on our wiki, http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?Git
[01:54:32] <ju-emb> seb: I'm on master
[02:00:25] <ju-emb> GLADE_CATALOG_PATH is set and points to the right catalog
[02:08:08] <ju-emb> install glade-gtk2 and use that does the trick
[02:19:24] <ju-emb> looks like some has to touch the glade hal widgets in future

[08:30:24] <cradek> oh hey, I like that too, and I hadn't noticed it (although I remember configuring the URL...)
[08:52:24] <seb_kuzminsky> any feedback on the "contributing to linuxcnc" doc? i tried to capture the useful bits from the Git wiki page
[09:17:26] <riz_> Hello, I have found some problems when trying to go between the various modes in emc2. I found that when I try to go from AUTO back to MANUAL I cannot for some reason. Has anyone experienced this before?
[09:26:18] <cradek> more details please?
[09:56:53] <riz_> When I start the controller I immediately switch to auto. I can run a program. But then when I switch back to Auto it doesn't seem to make the mode switch because I can never jog again
[09:57:08] <riz_> I can only jog when I startup and try jogging immediately in manual mode
[09:58:20] <cradek> can you say how to reproduce this, say using the sim/axis configuration, so someone else can try it?
[10:03:04] <riz_> I actually made by own simple UI that just goes between AUTO and MANUAL. I can run each individually, but for some reason I cannot switch back in forth
[10:03:29] <riz_> I literally switch to auto. Run the program by pressing run. Then when it ends I switch back to Manual
[10:03:43] <riz_> But that is where it gets messed up and wont switch back to Manual mode
[10:04:10] <riz_> It very well could be something on my end, but I have debugged and my UI definitely sends the Manual command back to emc2
[10:04:20] <cradek> so you're asking about how to fix a bug in a gui that only you have?
[10:04:51] <riz_> Not so much. Basically, if the controller is getting a Manual command, what stops it from switching over when in Auto
[10:05:11] <riz_> Its more of s high level questions about the controller
[10:05:15] <riz_> a*
[10:05:30] <cradek> I have not seen that with other guis - maybe you can investigate what they are sending that's different
[10:05:36] <cradek> the task issue debug bit is useful for this
[10:06:21] <riz_> Right. I will have a look to see what axis is doing.
[10:07:01] <cradek> maybe you're not setting the serial numbers properly?
[10:07:17] <riz_> Ill check that out as well
[10:07:18] <riz_> Thanks
[10:07:28] <cradek> welcome
[12:09:50] <kwallace> I replaced my long list of "command.mdi('nifty g-code block')"s with a "command.mdi('o<probe_bits> call')". So blocks throttle properly in both hardware and sim configs. It would be nice to have a linuxcnc.status feature that could read a number of user numbered parameters that are set in the g-code program. One parameter might be used as a 'done' flag then my DRO update periodic function could update DROs on the done rising edge.
[12:10:07] <kwallace> Any better ideas or help is welcomed.
[15:00:38] <mhaberler> HAL remote in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBynH_5KyPQ&feature=youtu.be
[16:30:05] <ju-emb> does the simulator in master only run-in-place or is it possible to install it ?
[16:32:47] <andypugh> mhaberler: Very cool!
[16:32:57] <mhaberler> ;)
[16:33:34] <mhaberler> Pavel kindly helped
[16:33:38] <andypugh> ju-emb: You can install it.
[16:33:51] <andypugh> (Or, you can get it from the buildbot)
[16:35:19] <ju-emb> I checked out the master and
[16:35:21] <ju-emb> ./configure -enable-simulator
[16:35:44] <andypugh> ju-emb: ./conigure --enamble-simulator --prefix=/usr/bin
[16:36:06] <andypugh> But without the two typos.
[16:36:47] <andypugh> Then instead of make // sudo make seutuid, it is make // sudo make install
[16:37:19] <ju-emb> if I do it just with ./configure -enable-simulator
[16:37:22] <ju-emb> Makefile:459: *** You configured run-in-place, but are trying to install
[16:37:47] <andypugh> It's --
[16:38:04] <ju-emb> I try with prefix
[16:38:16] <andypugh> And the --prefix= is what tells it to install, not run-in-place
[16:38:40] <ju-emb> ok thank's
[16:40:53] <mhaberler> (isnt it --prefix=/usr ?)
[16:43:13] <ju-emb> looks like mhaberler is right
[16:50:06] <andypugh> Ah, err, sorry.
