macOS High Sierra 10.13.6
Inkscape 0.91
XQuartz 2.7.11
Eggbot Extensions 2.7.1

Following the advice from WayneG, I edited the file ebb_serial.py. You can find this file in: /Applications/Inkscape.app/Contents/Resources/share/inkscape/extensions/ebb_serial.py Easiest way is to go through Terminal to open that path but you can also go through Finder - Right-click Inkscape and choose Show Package Contents.

All you have to do is update line 49 to "Arduino Leonardo" in the if statement:

From:
Code:
if port[1].startswith("EiBotBoard"):
To:
Code:
if port[1].startswith("Arduino Leonardo"):

Save the file and relaunch Inkscape.

Everything worked for me after this point so hopefully it work for others.




Hi Serin,

Thank you very much for your assistance. Your advice was just on point.

I followed your suggestions above, and finally I have a working Eggbot that talks to my MacBook Pro. Finding the file ebb_serial.py in Mac OS was a challenge.

All I need to do now is to caliberate the Eggbot motors and servo. If you have any suggestions in this regard from your experience working on it, please let me know.

I hope that other Mac users will find your instructions helpful. Hurray .. Smile

Thanks again.
