Second, you may be able to add AxiDraw support to your copy of RoboPaint 0.95, if it is working otherwise and you have a working AxiDraw configuration file for 0.95 on your other computer. On my Windows machine, the machine configuration files are located at:
Within that folder, you should find files like “watercolorbot.ini” and “axidraw.ini” — you should be able to copy one of these RoboPaint 0.95 machine configuration file to the corresponding folder on your other computer to add AxiDraw support to it.
