LInux Mint 20.2 Cinnamon
Installed 2.9 Premept
Error happens when trying to load qtpyvcp or even testing if it is installed correctly...

""""
don@don-Mint:~$ qtpyvcp -h

Same error if I try to use the call from LCNC. LCNC shuts down with the same error. 

Followed all procedures.

LCNC working with all other sims and profiles.

Tried a 4th re-install of qtpyvcp and tried qtpyvcp -h.

don@don-Mint:~/qtpyvcp$ qtpyvcp -h
Traceback (most recent call last):

Use Debian or MX Linux, Mint 20 does not do well with QtPy anything as it uses an older version by default.

I would but Debian does not work on install without a wired cable.

I had Mint 19 working fine. Just trying to get 20 working.

MX LInux?

Do you have a working MX with LCNC RT and QtPyVCP?

Tommy's suggestion of using the Debian version with the non-free drivers worked for a wifi installation for me.

I still went back to MX21, but if you're set on Debian you might have a go with the non-free ISO.

Do you have a working MX with LCNC RT and QtPyVCP?

You could follow these instructions
www.qtpyvcp.com/install/bullseye.html

The problem with mint is they use an old version of Python3 and Python 3.9 or higher is required. I could not get it sorted out so moved to Debian 11 using the same method described above.

Hey Rod,

Thanks. So far I have tried MX 19.4 as Tommy said, but I cannot launch editvcp. This experience was not what it was last time I tried to install QtPyVCP. It was a challenge then but I was able to overcome all the hurdles.

Is it possible that by default Python3 in MX 19.4 is 3.7?

I hate upgrading to 3.9 if it breaks everything.

Regardless, I tried Debian 11 but was unable to determine which non-free distro to choose.

Do you have link to a solid distro that includes all the wifi drivers so I can get a solid install without having to wire up?

This worked for me and a reluctant wifi dongle.
