Hi Rod,

what surprise to read from you :)

I think Debian 11 should be working for a RIP install.

Well, a quick shot showed, that axis seems to be working, but none of the other UI-apps did. No matter whether glade, gscreen or qt related. All failed - some with different errors.
So I have no idea, what might work or where there might be a problem.

vmihalca seem to have trouble, but I'm actually not able to help. I don't have experience with debian 11.

Anyway - it is a great pleasure to read from you. Hope you're healthy and well!

Healthy and well but too busy to play with lcnc sadly.
There is a script deployed with master that Phill wrote for the QT stuff.
details are in the QTplasmac docs...
I had it in my notes
~/linuxcnc-dev/lib/python/qtvcp/designer/install_script

Its all to do with GTK and python versions as master is on Python 3

Yes I know.

Rod, don't take me wrong - I don't mind python bugs and I don't care for them. Python is not my world.
But on debian 11 all is python3. master is said to be python3 too. So if UI-apps from master at debian 11 require some python2 packages, for me its obvious, that linuxcnc is not ready yet for debian 11.
May be, the bugs are python only. Not sure. Linuxcnc has so plenty obscure and nebulous internal dependencies, I can't state, what really works at debian 11 and what needs further development.
So actually, my skyline is debian 10.

For lcnc on debian eleven see the bottom of the readme to get dependencies :
github.com/grotius-cnc/hal-core/tree/main/src

I worked for month's on debian eleven i.c.w. lcnc wihout any problems, except Qtvcp

Yes, editor is a pane

I'm confident, that if debian states release 11 as stable, then its of cause stable and for so usable.
I know my linux box quite well and have no problems to identify and install needed packages.
But if a linuxcnc app claims to require a python2 package (like vte), I don't want to install that. linuxcnc master is said to be python3 ready. But that may be true only partially? Don't know.

Last week i modified some install scripts of the original lcnc like ./autogen and ./configure to do only python3. That worked.
I think they did not mod this into the source already, but not sure.

Hi Reinhard,

Can you please tell me from which linuxcnc files did you obtained the offsets that are used in BufferDescriptor classes?
I need to see what other data might be in that buffer that could be useful for me.

Thanks!
