Will what exactly work on 32 vs 64?

The images are different 32 to 64, so I'd guess swapping drives for different architectures would not work.  


Yes. I was really asking if the qt would work on either. I have pc's with 32 and 64 bit architectures.

I suppose I should go with 64.

I believe Qt is good to go on both 32 bit and 64 bit.  Though honestly I have not tried it on 32 bit.

Thanks snowgoer540 for putting this all together.

I'm just about to get a second PC and load this all up then swap out the one in the shed running the CNC.

Dont want to overwrite the shed one as same as other people, can't have the machine down & no internet in the shed yet.

I'll let you know how 'dummy proof' you have made the instructions.

Cheers

I think I have now successfully moved my config from the plasma via the backup from screen to another pc that I have put MXlinux on (thanks Snowy) it shows QTplasmac as V1.0.95

I then moved the ssd to my PC driving the plasma that all worked fine.

So then I wanted to update the original plasma ssd as it was on V1.0.32 I used apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade which ran fine I could see python 3 flashing past in the list.

But it did not change the QTplasmaC to the latest version is is still at 1.0.32

Have I missed somthing?

Edit the original ssd is linux 2.9

Glad to hear it!

What distribution is the repository pointed to in the synaptic package manager?

It does. For deb and deb-src (which it looks like you may be missing, at least in the photo you provided) you need to edit the entry and change “stretch” to “buster”.

EDIT: I'll leave the below as a testimonial that you simply can't trust Windows users with Linux.  Problem Fixed... I had found some random keyserver phase in a random post on this site and just copy-pasted with the port:80 added. Monkey CTL-C, monkey CTL-V. Didn't work (see below).  Should have copied the actual keyserver stuff from the actual instructions and added the ":80".  Success, and the follow-on repository addition worked.


Thanks for the installation guide.  I have MX running, but got an error when trying to add the buildbot repository.

NOTE - I also got lots of failures when trying to do the 'keyserver' step.  Finally tried the 'port 80' thing from the buildbot page and it appeared to work.

This is probably an issue on my end (network?), but I really don't know how to troubleshoot Linux enough to get any further.

Anyone decipher what this error is and how to fix it?

There is an issue with the keyser specified on the Buildbot page, try this one instead:

hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com
