Hmm, cherry picking Joco's install script to skip all the linux-rt and linuxcnc install
github.com/joco-nz/lcnc-bullseye-install...tall_for_lcnc.sh#L99
probe-basic runs fine on my Chromebook which uses Bullseye and a RIP linuxcnc install of V 2.9 once I worked out to home all from the menu. Surely there is a home all button?

In a terminal:
sudo top
or
sudo apt install htop
sudo htop
Those are terminal apps to check the processor/memory/load usage of every active app in Linux, so you can see what is keeping a high load.
Edit:
Htop can also list child processes and their usage/load

Rod - it's there when I open it, too.  And I can home the sime and the backplot responds.

But note how scrunched up everything is... that's a full-window capture I posted, not a 'select area' screen cap.

ok you have 2 postgui hal files and that doesn't work that is the stalling issue i'm fairly certain, check the probe basic sims to see how we merged the time.hal into the probe_basic_postgui.hal file..

Per Lcvette's comment you can only have a single postui hal file entry. I'm not sure what the behaviour would be if it finds multiple.

If you want multiple post gui hal files to be loaded you use a "call file" model. i.e. you have a single entry in your ini like:

POSTGUI_HALFILE = postgui_call_list.hal

Then in the contents of this file you list all hal files you want to be loaded something like:

source custom_postgui.hal
source custom_toolchange_ui.hal
source joypad.hal

etc etc

also you mentioned resolution, probe basic is for 1920x1080 ONLY it will not work on any other resolution screen... well actually it works on my oddball 1920 x 1200 old screen but i think only because its correct in one dimensions and larger in the other, smaller will not work

Your truncated display is probably just a display setting. I have a full HD monitor but its configured for 1536 x 864. The display seems correctly formatted at my end.
Anyway, its a different issue to what lcvette has pinpointed.

My display is set for 1920x1080.  All non-LCNC windows appear normally, but the PB screens and the LCNC config chooser are appearing like they're set for a different resolution.

EDIT - I'm working through the postgui hiccup now, take me a few minutes to fiddle this out and merge the two.

@rodw it does look like it kinda fits albeit a little scrunched in places compared to the 1920x1080 display..
