Error with Eggbot

edited December 2012 in General
I am asking for help regarding my eggbot. Not sure what the problem is? So far I have my eggbot built and connected to my mac laptop running 10.5.8.
I have XQuartz running 2.6.3. Inkspace is 0.48.2. The EBB firmware is 1.82. I am just trying to adjust the pen motor and press apply in the extensions and I get an error Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 30, in <module>
    import serial
ImportError: No module named serial
every single time. The led is flashing slow green on the Eibot board. Which means it is communicating. Not sure what the problem is. Thanks for helping. 


  • Please try this version of the installer, which was created specifically to solve this issue, and let me know how it goes:

    (If it does not work, I have a workaround that is known to work, but I'd really prefer to verify that the new installer solves the issue.)
  • Hi Windell,
    I had eggbot control extension version 2.2.2 installed before. I was getting my errors with this version. I downloaded the 2.3.1 beta version you sent the link to. It didn't work at first. But I did a clean install of inkspace and reinstalled the eggbot control extension 2.3.1. and now it works! Thank you so much. I went to the extension section and noticed that it shows that the version is displayed as 2.2.1. Not sure what that means. Thanks again.

  • OK, great-- thanks!  I'll mark this one as the "featured" installer. :D

    As for the version number, it probably should have been updated, but was not since (IIRC) only the "extra" extensions and the installer itself were updated.
