GScreen docs was created by Reinhard
I failed on the very first sample of custom screen with gscreen. As soon as I try to add an action as described, the designer crashes. Designer is the recommended version 3.8.6
Now I realized by accident, that the linuxcnc-actions have a contextmenueoption "add as toplevel widget", which works fine.

May be its worth to update the docs

Thank you - I will add that to the docs. Unfortunately that version of GLADE is pretty buggy and won't ever be fixed.

Unfortunately that version of GLADE is pretty buggy and won't ever be fixed.

Any advice, which version I should prefer?

As I worked with mach4 before, I wanted to use Qt, but I don't get it working. Qt works, but not with linuxcnc widgets.
So I tried glade. Glade is rough and clumsy but after all, I got something similar to what I wanted.
So next step is use glade with linuxcnc extensions.
All tutorials failed. The one from gscreen was the first i got to work by accident.
So gscreen seems to be the only way viable ...

I'm at the very beginning. Nothing to share yet.
There's so much I have to learn and understand ...
My goal is usability - not fine grained polishing

//edit:
Don't know, whether it may be useful
I attach the error output from glade designer from the crash when trying to attach a halaction to an empty window

That version is probably the best. Save your work often.
GLADE doesn't support it anymore - We are using old libraries because linuxcnc is currently stuck with python 2.

Hopefully i can get QT fixexec on install versions soon.
