Repetier in Linux

Post by theverant » Tue Jul 23, 2013 7:18 pm

Having issues with Repetier Host in Linux - anyone using RH in a *buntu environment?

- I ran the script and it downloaded and installed tons of stuff. RH boots fine.
- I set up the printer as I did in the Mac version
- I lowered the baud rate as suggested in the firmware
- Arduino has no trouble connecting to the Rambo to upload firmware, so I know what the address is
- RH hangs when connecting with 6 commands queued
- Crashes if I click the protocol dropdown menu (it is set to serial)
- Seems to reset the printer address among other settings in the first printer setup tab
- has exactly the same weirdness on two completely different machines (One is Ubuntu, one is Linux Mint)

Am I missing a step?

:shock:

Are you using the 0.90c version of RH?

Sounds like baud rate to me.

In RH, do you see any messages from the printer when you connect to it? You should see something like this.

Code: Select all

  1:43:38 AM: Attempting to connect to printer
  1:43:38 AM: Connection opened
< 1:43:47 AM: start
< 1:43:47 AM: FIRMWARE_NAME:RepetierMAX0.80 FIRMWARE_URL:https://github.com/seemecnc/RepetierMAX PROTOCOL_VERSION:1.0 MACHINE_TYPE:RostockMAX EXTRUDER_COUNT:1 REPETIER_PROTOCOL:2
< 1:43:47 AM: Printed filament:94.67 m
< 1:43:47 AM: Printing time:0 days 18 hours 4 min


(Note the time stamps. There is a 10 second pause in there.)

I am using the latest version, yeah.

No, it just hangs. And I did turn down the baud rate in the firmware, and matched it in RH.

Tried it again, and it now works. I think this was related to the f'd up firmware/eeprom problems I was having. Thanks for the feedback, all!
