Question about Ubuntu

Hi All,

Not very familiar with Linux, but can someone tell me how to upgrade my 10.4 to 12.1 or higher.
And will doing this affect my CNC settings or program?

Thanks

Linux help for novice

Hi Everyone - Since I don't know anything about Linux systems, maybe someone can walk me through, step by step. I bought a WDMyCloud and set it up on my router, and works fine connecting my windows and laptop computers, but I am hopelessly lost when it comes to my Asteroid Linux system. I've tried t...

Re: edit tool table

Hi 4D, Ok, what I was able to do is open the tool table and manually type in my tools and save. I've found out that I need to close out of the program, and upon opening it again, the Tool Table was updated. I understand the Diameter and Pocket and tool number, but "Len" I assume is length,...

Re: edit tool table

Hi 4D - Been away, but need to understand the tool table now that I'm back at my machine. I don't have any of those programs, so I need to set up the tools manually. My file is calling for T13 which in my CAD (solidworks & hsmworks) is a 1/8" dia Ball When I load the file I get an error tha...

Computer won't turn off- help

Several times now after I've made some parts I shut down the Probotics program, then shut down the computer only to come back later and see the screen with UBUNTU in the middle and the 5 dots below blinking from left to right. Only way then is to hold in the power key until it shuts down. Anyone kno...

Re: Confused

Not sure that I need a tool offset as I'm changing the tools manually and mostly using the same tool from one panel to another anyway. What I'm still unclear about is in my program I have an offset of G55 and executes the file just fine. However, after the program has ended and I hit the button &quo...

Re: Confused

Yes, I set G55 in mt MDI and am setting Z to top of material.

When I removed those three lines 20, 60 and 155 it makes the cut properly, so perhaps it has
something to do with the G43 in line N60 ?

Re: Confused

So, I removed lines N20, N60 and N155 that had reference to G43 and G53 and the cut was perfect. 4mm depth.
Now can anyone explaing why this worked? I looked up the G codes but don't quite follow what they mean.

Thanks,
Ken
