Is there a way (even if unofficially supported) of installing the Lightburn Bridge on an existing Linux install? (I’m technically competent.)
I already use a Pi 4 running Debian as a controller for my CNC mill, and having recently added a 20 watt laser to it, I’d like to continue using the Pi as a sender/controller (I used CNCjs).
I don’t want to constantly unplug and plug in USB connectors every time I switch between milling and laser (to use a laptop instead of the Pi), and I don’t want to have to shutdown and swap SD cards every time I make the switch, either.
I’ve considered trying to capture my Mac’s serial port and piping it over Ethernet or getting something like ser2sock working, but I stumbled upon mention of LightBurn Bridge, and so it seems like it’s a solved problem! Other than having to install a whole OS.
I’d prefer to install natively, but given that you’re releasing it as a whole image, it actually might be a good (and simple) candidate for release as a Docker image.
