=>1st: The instructions state to only copy the "gear" folder but there is no folder in the entire ZIP file called "gear", this is the folder structure after unpacking the ZIP file:
Code: Select all
FCGear-Master FCGear-Master examples gearfunc Resources icons
The best supposition I can make is the SECOND [sub] folder named "FCGear-Master" is the intended target as I doubt the "gearfunc" folder would be the appropriate one since it would have no references to the icon resources and all the others don't even have the word 'gear' in the names.
=>2nd: When I do copy the folder "...\FCGear-Master\FCGear-Master\" to the "C:\Program Files\FreeCAD\v0.15\Mod\" folder [with admin prvldgs] and then run FreeCAD I get the error:
"During initialization the error 'module' object has no attribute 'Workbench' occurred in C:\Program Files\FreeCAD\v0.15\Mod\FCGear-Master\InitGui.py"
So I then change the name of the folder "C:\Program Files\FreeCAD\v0.15\Mod\FCGear-Master\" to C:\Program Files\FreeCAD\v0.15\Mod\Gear\" and close and restart FreeCAD then I still get a similar error:
"During initialization the error 'module' object has no attribute 'Workbench' occurred in C:\Program Files\FreeCAD\v0.15\Mod\Gear\InitGui.py"
So I am guessing that the folder name is not the issue here and there is something else going on.
In any case the bloody thing doesn't show up, so what can I do to get this working? I am not a python coder but I use several others [including assembly] and I understand its bad use of indentation as ending constructs [along w/other issues], so is there some tweek I can make in one [or more] of the files to fix this?
P.S. A constructive criticism: At first I wasn't sure what it was showing a graphic of but after closer inspection I noticed it was just a badly drawn and very hard to read word of "rack" in an icon, maybe you could have an icon that shows a rack gear graphic [similar to the others] instead to make it less confusing? e.g.: OS: Windows 7
