Sounds like you did not tick a gui when you installed. See my instructions  9-10
docs.google.com/document/d/1jeV_4VKzVmOI.../edit?usp=share_link
There is a fairly easy fix
sudo apt install tasksel
sudo tasksel

Select XFCE and install it, reboot into a gui

I think part of the issue is my network doesnt work during the install.

sudo "command not found"

hmm

Somehow get network for the install as the image I shared is a network install, just the minimum.

ok, seems to be installed, but it errors if i try to open linuxcnc with the probe basic ui. it also does not provide me with that as an option in pncconf.

sudo "command not found"

Means you are running as ROOT, not a user, so some stuff will not work properly, pretty sure LinuxCNC also does not run as root.
Get the new ISO, with GUI, while installing if it asks for a root password, do not enter anything, just move on, it will ask for a new user name and password.
