Just attempted to do a clean install and it seems like the new Repo links are broken!
Do we still have the google drive link?
links in question:

repository.qtpyvcp.com/repo/probe-basic-...5.3-3+81.dev_all.deb

repository.qtpyvcp.com/repo/qtpyvcp-dev/...4871882e.dev_all.deb

repository.qtpyvcp.com/repo/hiyapyco/pyt...pyco_0.5.1-1_all.deb

Thanks in advance
Kris

I ran into a problem trying to run Probe Basic Lathe. I installed Probe Basic following the instructions in the machine control install thread. I can run the probe basic mill sim, but the probe basic sim version throws the error:
  File "/usr/bin/probe_basic_lathe", line 5, in <module>
    from probe_basic_lathe import main
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'probe_basic_lathe'

Any tips on how to get the lathe GUI to work? Thanks!

Thanks TurBoss. I uninstalled the old package and installed the updated one and I can launch both the simulated GUI and my own configuration now.

So, I was going to make a post, but I did manage to solve this, but wanted to post this here incase anyone else was having a similar issue.

-  What Linux OS being used including kernel type?

I am doing a test run in a virtualbox vm before I do a real install on my linuxcnc box, since it's currently working well on axis from the linux.org 2.9 install.

Installed Debian 12.4 net version (also tried the dvd iso the first time as the machine will rarely have internet connection, same issue)
Kernal 6.1.0-17-amd64

-  What version of Linuxcnc is installed?


2.9.0~pre1+git20230208.f1270d6ed7

-  What version of QtPyVCP and Probe Basic is installed?


QtPyVCP 0+unkown,

Qt Info
version 5.15.8

-  How did you install Probe Basic? Quickstart guide? Dev Guide? 

kcjengr.github.io/probe_basic/quick_start.html

-  Have you gone through your ini and hal files and compared to the sim config files to make any changes needed?

-  Have you added all of the necessary files in your config folder that probe basic needs to run?

-  Have you tested the sim version to see if the problem exists there also? (if the sim functions properly, it is a good indicator your issue is in your config)

Does not apply

Attached a screenshot, but basically up until "sudo dpkg -i python3-qtpyvcp_4.0-45.dev_all.deb" everything goes smoothly. It's at this point it says package python3-distro is not installed. However you can see when I type in python3 into terminal it returns python 3.11.2

So I ran "sudo apt --fix-broken install" and reran the command with success. So it seems something is broken from a fresh install. I did run sudo apt update first thing.

the best method to use is the apt install from the quickstart guide, this will be the easiest to maintains and update going forward.
