Linux support?
« on: July 19, 2017, 06:25:06 PM »
I've got to have a CAM package that runs under Linux.  LaserWeb is a failure; a miserable, poorly programmed, embarrassing, nonfunctional failure.   Will T2 do it or will I have to write my own?

T2 is windows only and will not be ported to Linux. You might be able to use it with a VM

I have written my own linux application. Have also written my own firmware (for stm32f chip) so I am no longer sure  what standard GRBL it plays with.
SARCASM - Just one more service we offer here.

Unless Linux supports .net (in a VM or otherwise) it's not going to work.

Why not use a cheap tablet to run the laser?

You might try asking this question under Bencutlaser rather than under T2 Engraving.

T2Laser full working on linux.

i  uploaded firmware and connect fine.

steps.

uninstall wine and ppa

sudo apt install ppa-purge
sudo ppa-purge ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

sudo apt-get update

install wine Development branch
https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu


open terminal and write(change USER for your user linux folder
rm -fr ~/.wine export WINEARCH=win32 export WINEPREFIX="/home/USER/.wine" winecfg

select windows 7 emulation.


create folder for winetricks(example mkdir winetricks)
download winetricks last version on here type this
wget -r -c -N https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks

cd /Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/
sudo chmod +x winetricks

launch winetricks

navigate to the default wineprefix -> Installation of Windows DLL or component, find dotnet45 and mark it for installation. 4. Installer will install all .NET Frameworks including 4.5 version

system is fine for t2laser

now on terminal type winefile

search setup.exe (t2laser install app)

and enjoy.



happy new yer for linux users.

superb anakein , thanks for this, I will defiantly try it, having T2 as a replacement for laserweb is definably on my list of priorities.
I have discovered another 'feature' of laserweb, the origin of your document in LW changes when you connect to the laser controller. This changes the LW workflow quite a bit.

Fantastic work, you are a genius!

I haven't used Linux in "a long time" so this is Greek to me but I'm glad you got it working and hope others will see T2Laser as an option.
