I'll presume then that one must download the ISO from linuxcnc.org/downloads/ then perform an update procedure as there is no current ISO that can just be downloaded and run like the normal LinuxCNC install. Correct?
(I need to use the proper procedure if I make a YouTube tutorial video to push to my 3600 subscribers.) :-)

Thanks,
Jerry


You could download Debian 9 with LinuxCNC 2.7 and update to 2.8.

Or you could install Debian 9 or 10 (10 has a few issues with gscreen) from my instructions at gnipsel.com/linuxcnc/uspace/

I'm guessing the one to use is : www.linuxcnc.org/testing-stretch-rtpreem...uspace-amd64-r12.iso

And to update to 2.7... I believe... linuxcnc.org/docs/html/getting-started/updating-linuxcnc.html

So I have a plan... I'll do that as soon as possible.

Thanks BigJohnT !

There is also version r13 there, so use that, not r12.

Hello,

I am hoping I am posting in a thread that makes sense.

I installed on Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon and seemed to be having some minor issues and was hoping maybe by chance you guys might have a simple answer for me. Not new to Linux but am new to Qt and Py.

What happens is I install the 3 buttons... E Stop, Power Home All and they work fine. But....

Since I am running Cinnamon the Gtk themes are involved and the theme takes over the styling of the buttons. So, whatever color is set in the theme, the buttons have the default colors pertaining to that theme. It's kinda funny and kinda frustrating.

I thought the QtPy would override the styles given the qss files. But it appears not so much.

It took me a few days to get my system dialed in so that the plugins finally showed up and now this is the only issue I cannot seem to get past.

Any ideas or help would be most appreciated.

Fyi... I am a 30 year CNC controls engineer specializing in Fanuc, Siemens, and Heidenhain so I will not try to bore you with dumb questions. And if you have any questions regarding CNC technology feel free to rob my brain. If I do not know, I can assure you without fail I know someone who does.

Thank you in advance and I hope to hear from you soon.

Don

Well, never mind. If all else fails, read more. The theme for windows is set in the ini file. Problem solved.

I tried to download the tutorial for qtpyvcp, but the link is broken. Is the tutorial still online to find?

Eventually I found them.

strahlensauger: Thanks for letting us know the link was broken! For some reason my web hosting did not auto-renew. Fixed now.

Thanks,
Kurt

I'm having a hard time getting the CSS file to be applied when following the tutorial. Any changes I make to the 'style.qss' file are ignored. In fact it seems like the current Mint system theme is applied to the VCP instead. anything that I can try to force the CSS? thanks!

Do you have the correct QSS file specified in the YAML file?
If so it will override any system theme.
application:
  kwargs:
    # Specify the application wide stylesheet.
    stylesheet: {{ file.dir }}/ui/style.qss
