qtplasmac starts up with no errors.

qt install script has been re-run with no errors reported in the terminal session.

A few of the QT sims now work, but Woodpecker threw an error during shutdown.

I'll start a new topic in qtvcp, thank you for the guidance.

I think you just missed a step.  It’s in the second pdf, section 4, step 19.

haha it's like making cookies, only the good news is when you forget to add the baking soda, you can fix it later, instead of finding out after you have inedible wafers with chips in them and it's too late :laugh:

I have a working plasma on linuxmint 19. I didnt update it cause I was afraid it would break. But I need top get it to the latest QTPlasmaC.
Should I install MX using this method and copy the config folder over? Would that work?

Thanks for the kind words, I am happy people seem to be getting good use out of the guide.

I would recommend using the backup button on the Parameters tab, but yes, it will work.

In the 3rd PDF, Section 9 walks you through how to restore a previously working QtPlasmaC config. The most cumbersome part is probably putting the folder in the right place, and then recreating the appropriate symbolic link.

perfect .. i installed qtplasmac and the network works fine too without problems. only drawback for the same pc is the boot time almost double compared to buster but it is not a problem.
Thank you

Just had a go at this on a Dell laptop, so from a 20 minute affair it is apparent that the Debian official install procedure works as is for 2.8.2:
linuxcnc.org/docs/2.8/html/getting-start...th_preempt_rt_kernel
Did not check 2.9 yet, need sleep badly, but pretty sure it will also work by changing the repos but i would not bet on it as it uses Python3.
Another thing i noticed, the part from section 4 > page 2 is a nice feature of MX and this makes me wonder, if MX has changing boot kernels why other distros do not???
Oh well..
Thank you Snowwy for a very detailed howto.
Regards,
Tom.
