After some time not working on it the vinyl cutter/plotter is now working perfectly in linux.

There are no more signal drops that were happening in windows.

The drivers are on the Whittenstein usb card that is attatched to the machine. DO NOT HACK THE CARD.


download inkscape, move items in the driver folder from USB card into: /home/.config/inkscape/extensions

Run inkscape and should be there under extensions, cutter/plotter.

One thing you have to do though is chmod the USB port:

   sudo chmod 0777 /dev/ttyUSB*

Where * is the USB port number

There is more on the linked website and the readme folder on the USB.

Message hipster or find him for help or any issues that arise.
