Inkcut setting up device Vinyl Express QE6000

Postby zedd2006 » Fri May 19, 2017 9:30 am

For the life of me i cant figure out how to set up my device in inkcut. I have a Vinyl Express QE-6000 cutter that is connected via USB. I can cut to in a VM, so i know the cutter is connected and working. Running Linux Mint 18, Inkscape 0.91, and Inkcut v1.0

I've tried to do various things to find the port the printer is on and i cant seem to fugure it out. I've tried to use

Code: Select all

dmesg | grep ttyS
and it shows nothing. I even tried to use this script...

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash

for sysdevpath in $(find /sys/bus/usb/devices/usb*/ -name dev); do
    (
        syspath="${sysdevpath%/dev}"
        devname="$(udevadm info -q name -p $syspath)"
        [[ "$devname" == "bus/"* ]] && continue
        eval "$(udevadm info -q property --export -p $syspath)"
        [[ -z "$ID_SERIAL" ]] && continue
        echo "/dev/$devname - $ID_SERIAL"
    )
done


and i also got nothing, anyone able to help me?

Inkcut is no longer being developed or supported. But there's a new extension to take its place, which is Extensions menu > Export > Plot. More support info here: https://www.timewasters-place.com/inksc ... s-the-3rd/
