Wait - so marlin works - but your x and y axes dont' work? Using pronterface (or replicatorg) command the servos *off*. Then push the head to the middle. Then put the X axis in *relative* move mode and move 10mm to the right:

G1 X10

Does it move right or left? It should move right. You might also (or instead) have the limit switches backwards? Those are easy to swap - just swap the connectors.

ginge builder works quite well. You can use Cura "expert" menu to load the firmware. You probably already know this.

More gcodes are here:
