Silly me, I installed some updates and restarted my computer, and it seems I have some different issues now.

Trying to cat any of those files to my cutter does nothing. If I try to cut with InkPlot my cutter will hang up. The LCD shows "On Line" but it does nothing and none of the control buttons work. If I then press one of the limit switches to reset the cutter I can cat my hpgl files and they will cut. Is InkCut sending some sort of non-readable ASCII code to enable the cutter or driver?

The file I am trying to cut is a simple stylized flame graphic. If I run InkCut it gives me the following message:

Code: Select all

If I copy and paste the line with all of the command to a file, then remove "SP1;VS4;FS80;" from the beginning, and replace "H;" with "IN;" from the end, then cat that file to ttyUSB0, it will cut. Is there any setting in InkCut to do that?
