I am building a cnc router. I have loaded Ubuntu 5.10 and EMC2 onto my system. Now I need to configure it for the right pinout. I am using a CandCNC mini-io breakout board and it is configured to match the xylotex pinout.
This is clearly a newbie type question, but where do I find the actual file stepper_inch.ini that I need to modify to include xylotex_pinout.hal instead of standard_pinout.hal. If it is the one that is in the folder "etc/emc2/sample-configs/stepper" that is definitely counter-intuitive. I was looking for something like "etc/emc2/configs/stepper" but no joy in Muddville.
Does the EMC program work the same way as Mach3? For example do I place an xml file in a directory containing the program data if I am using the MK4c or MK4?
I don't see the hardware in the configuration screen and wonder how to add it.
