Could you post your .ini file? I would like to see the working version.

Thanks

I had a debian 9, linuxcnc 2.8 and probe basic setup working great except for the jogging speed issue on my 4th axis.  So I thought I would upgrade to get that fixed.  But, I can't get probe basic working.  I'm very new at linux and git.



If you're still having issues with 4th axis jog speed (using screen buttons), see the thread here:

forum.linuxcnc.org/qtpyvcp/43904-solved-...-rotary-axis-jogging

That particular issue went away when I switched to a different branch in github Probe Basic (test_layouts), so a permanent fix is being developed. 

But if you're still having the issue your branch, the above post is a decent work-around.

from Flyer007:
Has anyone tried this with the Wildfire release? I am having some issues.

Also there are some steps in directions that seem off.

at cp ~/qtpyvcp/scripts/.xsessionrc ~/ I have to use full path for it to work

Then
mkdir ~/linuxcnc
mkdir ~/linuxcnc/configs
Error out as the directories are already there

Lastly;
git clone git://github.com/kcjengr/qtpyvcp.conversational-gcode.git
git checkout python3
you need a cd qtpyvcp.conversational-gcode before checkout

When I finish, I can start linuxcnc from terminal I don't see anything in the MX start menus for linuxcnc only QT designer
I was able to get PB sim to load once. I don't see any PB_Lathe in the linuxcnc selection list

figured out the menu item. Never did a RIP install. got it

So, I'm having the exact same situation. How do I get the LinuxCNC back into the MX Start menu? Thx!
