I Installed MakerBot Desktop and Now I Can't Connect My Printer to ReplicatorG

Current Step:
  1. Stop Conveyor

MakerBot Desktop connects to your MakerBot via a service called Conveyor. Once you install MakerBot Desktop, Conveyor will run in the background and prevent other programs, like ReplicatorG, from connecting to your printer. To reconnect to ReplicatorG, you'll have to stop Conveyor. The easiest way to do this is through the Services menu in MakerBot Desktop. Choose Stop Background Service.

Stopping Conveyor when you do not have MakerBot Desktop open depends on what operating system you're using. On Windows computers, stop Conveyor through the Services application. On Macs, open up Terminal and enter "sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.makerbot.conveyor.plist. On Linux computers the command is sudo stop conveyor. If you need to restart Conveyor, you can do that from MakerBot Desktop's service menu.
