Could NOT! even get the LINK to work!! This is what I get when I go to the Link:December 28, 2015 at 1:24 pm #22367
We couldn’t find any repositories matching ‘https://github.com/evil-mad/robopaint/releases/download/untagged-cff783c7331b1033525a/RoboPaintMac_v2.0.0-Beta.1.dmg’December 28, 2015 at 1:48 pm #22368
Sorry; I thought you would have access. I’ll upload it to another host and post a temporary link.December 28, 2015 at 2:06 pm #22369
Please see if this link works for you: http://blog.emscdn.com/scratch/RoboPaintMac_v2.0.0-Beta.1.dmgDecember 28, 2015 at 5:15 pm #22370
Well at least I got it downloaded but the application will not load.December 28, 2015 at 5:18 pm #22371
Well, Darn. That’s the first report that we’ve had of it *not* working. Can you please say at which stage it gets stuck?December 28, 2015 at 5:23 pm #22372
One possibility: Your gatekeeper is preventing it from opening. In the Finder on the Mac, select the RoboPaint icon. Right click (or control-click) the icon to get the contextual menu, and select “open” from that menu.(If this is the issue, you will only need to open it like this the very first time.)December 28, 2015 at 9:10 pm #22373
I have my security set From Anywhere. The ICON “Install RoboPaint” does nothing when right clicked.December 28, 2015 at 9:22 pm #22374
Oh — not a launch problem — you haven’t been able to install it yet. Got it.The file RoboPaintMac_v2.0.0-Beta.1.dmg is a disk image (not an application) that should open up when you double click it.After double clicking on that icon, if you can’t see anything, try selecting from the menu Go > ComputerThe virtual disk (“Install RoboPaint”) should show up there.Inside that folder is the RoboPaint App, which you can drag to your Applications folder.December 28, 2015 at 10:11 pm #22375
Here is what I get now:EiBotBoard not found.What do you want to do?Continue in Simulation modeTry to ReconnectWhen I select the Try to Reconnect age the same EiBotBoard not found. I have reconnected the USB to Board still nothingI have the bot connected to my Macbook Pro, power connected to board, one green light on right side of board is on, one green light on front edge of board flashing.December 29, 2015 at 12:26 am #22376
If you had not restarted your computer since trying the previous version of RoboPaint, I would suggest trying that.I will follow up here and see if there is anything else that I might suggest.Has your WaterColorBot worked with previous versions of RoboPaint, or are you just getting started?December 29, 2015 at 9:01 am #22377
It is brand new personally bought Christmas gift. I have never used one before. I did reboot no improvement. The Simulation mode seems to work just fine.December 29, 2015 at 12:50 pm #22378
One thing that you might try — a long shot — is a different USB cable. (The WaterColorBot is extensively tested before shipping, but comes with a new USB cable.)I am following up on the software side, to see what else we might be able to try from a diagnostic standpoint.In the mean time, you might consider giving the WaterColorBot’s Inkscape driver a try– it should get you up and running to at least try out the machine.
