My Nomad 883 is about to ship.
I got a big problem… My desktop computer isn’t anywhere near where I plan on putting my Nomad.
I really wanted to put a Raspberry Pi on the Nomad and just do everything through SSH, but it looks like Carbide Motion is Windows and Mac only.
Is there a secret version of Carbide Motion for Linux, specifically ARM instruction set?
Is there a good replacement for Carbide Motion that can run natively on Raspberry Pi? It would be nice if it had a console user interface so it can be remoted into by SSH, instead of a full GUI that I would need VNC for.
What do you guys think of spending money on a new Win 8 tablet computer? I’ll permanently connect it to the Nomad. The trouble is, the small tablets don’t have USB ports at all. The ones that do are more expensive than I feel comfortable with.
What about my last option, which is to put a TCP to serial conversion server on a Raspberry Pi, and install a virtual COM to TCP port on my desktop, and run Carbide Motion on my desktop but it’s actually sending everything through TCP to a Raspberry Pi, which then sends stuff out USB port?
