My problem is that I can't install Debian - 10 or 11.  It doesn't play well with either of my USB wifi sticks, I don't have wired internet in the shop, and it also doesn't have drivers for the realtek NIC.

You can always try the "non free" version of Debian 10 or 11, those have all the drivers included.
cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/no...-live+nonfree/amd64/
For 11
cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/no...-live+nonfree/amd64/
for 10
choose the ISO or bittorrent.

Holy cow, that actually worked.

Thanks, Tommy.

So... which version of probe basic do I install now?

I'm not sure about installing PB Vertical.  But for Horizontal I have proven these instructions.  These assume you have completed the Deb-11 install per my instrcution page.

>>> PROBE BASIC - PY3 <<<
cd ~/dev
git clone git://github.com/kcjengr/probe_basic.git
cd probe_basic
git checkout python3
qcompile .
python3 -m pip install --no-deps --editable .
cp -r ~/dev/probe_basic/probe_basic/fonts/ ~/.local/share/
cp -r ~/dev/probe_basic/config/probe_basic/ ~/linuxcnc/configs/
cd ~/dev
git clone git://github.com/kcjengr/qtpyvcp.conversational-gcode.git
cd qtpyvcp.conversational-gcode
git checkout python3
python3 -m pip install --no-deps --editable .

Joco,

That did the trick.  Probably the easiest and pain-free installation in the past few months thanks to you and Tommy.

Any ideas on who might be able to help with PB vertical?  I'm really at a crossroad here with monitor size/selection and the new control panel.

I'm not too sure where things are with PB vertical. I know there has been work on it and the most active branch seems to be PBTestLayouts with changes made in the last month.

Joco - I've not received any responses in my PB Vertical thread... and I've no idea how to 'get' the PBTestLayouts branch from github.  I can navigate to the branch page but I really don't know what to do from that point.

git checkout PBTestLayouts
should do the trick ( in the probe-basic folder)

Rod,

I got a response from terminal:

Branch 'PBTestLayouts' set up to track remote branch 'PBTestLayouts' from 'origin'.
Switched to a new branch 'PBTestLayouts'


That looks promising, but I think there's maybe a next step?  PB development (master) is already installed, but not sure how to either uninstall and reinstall using the test layouts branch, or update/merge.

No errors running the python3 install, but vertical still fails to open.

I copied /probe_basic/configs/probe_basic_vertical to my linuxcnc/configs folder and ran it from the GUI selector.  Got the following error:
File "/home/mill/probe_basic/probe_basic_vertical/probe_basic_vertical.py", line 13, in <module>from . import probe_basic_vertical_rcImportError: cannot import name 'probe_basic_vertical_rc' from 'probe_basic_vertical' (/home/mill/probe_basic/probe_basic_vertical/__init__.py)

probe_basic opens fine.
