  • doxygen

Build Switches

- -DBUILD_TEST_GUI = ( ON | OFF ) Build the test client (Default is ON)

Building on Linux

$ git clone
$ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$(qtpaths --install-prefix) -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR=lib CMakeLists.txt
$ make
$ make install

Building on Windows

For Windows build you need to set up Craft
It's tricky, but with all the last changes in half an hour you can have the setup done.
Remember, it's easier if you have Python3.6 or higher installed.
After you have the Craft environment setup do:

craft atcore

This will dowload all Qt and KDE libraries needed and compile Atcore.
For running, inside the prompt call:


For debugging run:

craft vsd
vsd AtCoreTest

This will give you feedback on the prompt to check what is happening.

For packing:

craft --package atcore

At C:/KDE/craft/tmp you will find the installer.

Building on Mac OS


  • Git
  • QtCreator
  • XCode
  • CMake
  • Extra-Cmake-Modules via Craft
    Open a terminal and run:
    $ git clone
    Now you open QtCreator and open AtCore like project selecting the CMakeLists.txt on the root of AtCore folder.
    Setup your development environment:
  • Set your CMAKE_C_COMPILER to /usr/bin/cc
  • Set your ECM_DIR to your ECM install directory.

Now you can build AtCore.
After build do:

  • Copy the plugins files from <buildpath>/src/plugins/*.dylib to
  • Run macdeployqt on the app


We have a docker container within this project. To use it on your Docker environment just pull it:

$ docker pull lays147/atcore

To run it on Linux:

$ xhost: local:root
$ docker run --rm -it -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix -e DISPLAY --device DEVICE lays147/atcore:latest

You need to use the --device option to give the container access to your printer. It must point to the printers serial device.
Overriding DEVICE value to the port of your printer.
Example: --device /dev/ttyUSB0

Testing AtCore

Testing is simple and will help us a lot.

  • Build / Install the testclient
  • Connect to your printer
  • Test the controls in the testclient
  • Test Print Command
  • Save your log and send it with errors


For your test results to be helpful they must include the full log output.
