Ok, good to know there's alternative, i have heard about Repetier before but didn't really know what it is. Interesting.

I got Z and E working; Z was a misconfiguration on my part, i had swapped min and max positions so the length was probably -140mm :). No wonder that it didn't work.
E was not moving simply because i tried to move it without heating the nozzle; Marlin (wisely) prevents this so there's no damage to se extruder setup when trying to extrude cold filament.

I didn't get a print made yet, but played around with Pronterface and Simplify3D. I had some trouble with S3D as it didn't seem to want to send commands to the unit... probably a problem with the previous firmware settings i used with original Cube2 motherboard.

Also i need proper Start g-code and end g-code, i'll try the ones posted previoulsy in this thread.

For the Z-offset, the method seems to be to move Z, Y and Z to the actual 0-position then selecting Set offsets.
And the Z kept falling down after 2 minutes, which was fixed by disabling stepper timeout for Z.

Getting there... :)
