WARNING!: When on the ready screen, you can adjust the Force, Speed, Quality, etc. A Force of 14 barely didn't cut all the way through, and 35 ripped the vinyl. Force of 20 seems like the best average setting.

==HPGL vs. GPGL - Inkcut on Linux==
When using Inkcut from Code LV on Linux, I had much more luck switching the cutter and Inkcut to using GPGL instead of HPGL - the cutter doesn't seem to interpret HPGL "pen up" commands from this software correctly and it will just shred the vinyl. Instructions coming shortly. -Drew K
