Setting the Probotix Comet Configuration to Find Your G-Code Library

Personal notes on how to get the LinuxCNC software that comes with the Probotix Fireball Comet CNC to find your personal library of G-code files.

The Probotix Comet controller software (AXIS) by default looks for extra G-code files in /home/probotix/emc2/nc_files.

If one does not wish to store files there, one can edit the /home/probotix/configs/Comet/Comet.ini to point it to the directory of choice.

Change the  PROGRAM_PREFIX parameter to point to the directory of choice. (As always, please back up files before hacking them.)

This will allow one to, for example, load a standard preamble with the G-code:

o<preamble> call

or otherwise allow one to create a library of useful routines.
