Customize pronterface UI for 3.5" LCD
February 04, 2018 02:54PM
Hello, I switched to a Raspberry Pi for my pronterface. This pi has a 3.5" LCD. I hack the source code to make the ui look nicely on the 3.5" LCD. My last problem is that the Extrude. Reverse and length elements, they are way below on the bottom left side, unless I move the window up, even then they are not semmetrical in the entire UI. It looks like as in the attached pronterfaceUI2.png: ideally I would like it looks like pronterfaceUI_ideal.png . I realize this is more a python question. But I wonder if someone has more python experience can give me some pointers, as far as I know, it involves hacking the controls.py and pronterface.py files. Thanks.

I know this doesn't answer your question but I recently came across this project. Maybe it has what you need and spares you the need to hack pronterface?
