"Cutter not Found" - SO4 and Raspberry Pi

Hello friends.

I have a SO4 XL that I am trying to run off a Raspberry Pi 4. I have done this successfully with a RasPi 3, but upgraded because it couldn’t handle modestly sized jobs.

I have checked the RasPi configurations and the Serial Ports are enabled.

The Pi uses a touchscreen, which is also connected by USB and that works fine.

Next step was that maybe it was the cable to the SO4, but everything works fine when I runoff my MacBook with the same cable.

So… any ideas?

First off, thanks for sharing that! I’ve been googling for days, but didn’t see it.

Secondly, you are an absolute rock star for replying to me at 8:30 AM on a Sunday morning. Carbide is lucky to have you! And so are we all as users!!! Thanks and happy Fourth!


Yes, Will’s dedication / devotion and encyclopedic recall are amazing.

I was thinking early this morning instead of “Let me google that for you” we have “Let me Will that for you”.
