1 Point n Click Configurator

The Point n Click Configurator covers Mesa cards and parallel port stepper configurations. If you have a simple parallel port stepper machine the StepConf Wizard might be a better choice. The Point n Click Configurator can generate some advanced configurations without knowing anything about HAL.

Start the PnCConf program from the CNC menu or from a terminal window with pncconf. For more information on the terminal window see the Linux FAQ section.
