Well, I might have go ahead of it all, but I upgraded from debian 10 to 12, and installed Linuxcnc via synaptic and the debian 12 repo. 
Linuxcnc startup fine.  tried an axis sim first.  no problems.
Then tried my qtDragon config.......NO luck.  Not a linuxcnc problem.  It's sure seems to be a qtvcp and/or qtdesigner problem(s).
I run from a terminal window with all debugging on.   see the file below for the terminal output.
As qtdragon loads, it errors (see the 'dragon startup error - initial' image).
If I select 'abort', it totally aborts.
If I select 'retry' one more widget appears, the throws the same error  (see the  'dragon startup error - after couple of retrys' image)

I am out of ideas. 
any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

PS.  qtdesigner does not startup either.   see the 3rd image.....

yes a PYQT library changed it's arguments from floats to integers.
I don't have a Debian 12 system so have not identified every one.

Eyecon ran into this and I think he manually fixed it - I'm not sure he gave a patch.
If you put int() around the complaining arguments that should be a quick fix.

Chris. thanks
I think I found Eyecon's post forum.linuxcnc.org/qtvcp/46412-python-fu...-linuxcnc-2-9#247616
He says there it is a python 3.10 (and probably greater) problem, and 3.9 is no problem.
Am I reading that correctly?
If so, how could I go back to 3.9?

just checked.  i'm on 3.10.6 currently

Ya I should be able to fix things just from your error messages - might take a couple tries.

I just pushed the problems I found with drawing.
It comes with other updates mainly to qtdragon_hd - hopefully I haven't missed something there.
If you are compiling you can pull and test now. Buildbot usually takes quite awhile.

What kernel # are you using with bookworm?

thanks
Linux 4.19.0-9-rt-amd64

I have installed lcnc via the debian 12 repository. no clue where it gets its .deb's
what files did you have to modify?
if you post them here, could I use them? if yes, how???

OK,  i see them in src files.....3 files.  python.   
if I download and replace my existing ones with those, shouldn't it work?   python being a non-compiled coding and all.....
??

OK, again.....  I edited the existing files identical to your edits in src. 
but still get the same errors....
what gives?

Strange, Debian 12 BookWorm should have 5.nn kernels, not 4.19.
Give PhillC's script a try, it always worked for me on Debian and Mint for installing QT stuff:
