Why is the "Edit" button disabled in AXIS?
No editor has been specificed in the [DISPLAY] section of the ini file.

How can I specify the size and position of Axis

Using devilspie

1. I installed the devilspie application from a terminal:

sudo apt-get install devilspie

2. Check the box to start Devilspie automatically in System >
Preferences > Startup Applications in 10.04. Re-login to auto start devilspie,
or run the command 'devilspie' in a terminal for now.

3. Make a subdirectory in your home directory called .devilspie:

mkdir .devilspie

4. Using a text editor (like gedit) create a file called axis.ds
with the following contents in the directory created in step #3:

(is (window_class) "Axis")

5. Now when Axis is started, it is automatically maximized!

Or directly specifying size and location

Thanks to Dewey for these tips.

To set the size of Axis when it loads up create a file in your home directory called .axisrc and put the following in it, the size is width x height + left offset + top offset."wm","geometry",".","1200x600")

Or using tk

To have Axis open up at the maximum size for your screen use:"wm","maxsize",".")
fullsize=maxgeo.split(' ')[0] + 'x' + maxgeo.split(' ')[1]"wm","geometry",".",fullsize)

How long will it take to run my file

File/Properties contains the raw run time for the currently loaded g code file. It does not take into account acceleration or deceleration during moves but will give you a general idea.
