Thanks Sparkhut. We ought to make some signage to make people aware of the fusebox.sparkhut wrote:ok--found the culprit. the flex cable with wiring to the office & weld outlets run on top of the office. there are a couple of junctions with 20 amp buss fuses. sure enough, one blown. replaced it (and stashed some extras for next time--haha). lights on.

Odd! I printed out a single brochure test that worked fine; not sure what could've happened between those jobs that made it different.jtbarclay wrote:wammie wrote:I also printed out some more brochures.

The brochures you printed are the same on both sides, halfway through the stack it switches over to the other page...

I made some adjustments to the big monitor attached now to the Compaq PC for the CNC machine, and it works OK. There are some horizontal lines appearing as noise when the Ubuntu login screen is displayed, but that goes away after logging in. In Ubuntu I had to adjust the screen refresh to 75 hz instead of 85 hz. The resolution is 1600x1200, so the PC's video card can just barely deal with this; if the resolution is set lower the video performance on this machine would be better.
Pete, if you're going to donate that PC and it's already built especially for CNC stuff, that's fine too. We can use that other PC as a guest PC. Or if you're just bringing that PC in temporarily to test, then we can build on the one in the classroom. Either way, whatever you decide to do is fine.otto_pjm wrote:Thanks, I'll check it out. I have a machine with the EMC2 build which is a special tweak of Ubuntu 8.04 with real time kernel and all the CNC hal stuff. I'll bring that next time I come and see if we can meld the two worlds together. I'm not sure what this specific xorg config file looks like, but hopefully we can copy the one you have working on that machine.
