Yes. you may have 2.9pre. But since this is the development version it's under development and you don't have the most uptodate build of it. That is why you need to do all this.
I have run out of time for now.

Please run the command: 'linuxcnc_info' in a terminal
and post the file that it creates: /tmp/linuxcnc_info.txt

$ linuxcnc_info

are you developing the software?


if yes it's great, a little difficult to set up, but once in place I had no PB with my continuous 5axis machine. i even made it work with a raspberry pi4.
sorry, Let’s not go astray. but I would still like to know the 1/1000 of your knowledge.

Your linuxcnc_info.txt report shows:

"lsb_release -sa:  Ubuntu Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS 18.04 bionic
DESKTOP: xubuntu
cmdline: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-5.6.19-rt12 ...
ii linuxcnc-uspace 1:2.9.0~pre0 amd64 motion controller for CNC machines and robots"

It appears that the the linuxcnc-uspace package was
NOT installed from the buildbot since buildbot deb installs
report with a line like:

"ii linuxcnc-uspace 1:2.9.0~pre0.4140.gb54a9f3bd amd64 ..."

In the above, the '4140' is a buildbot id and the
number string after the '.g' (b54a9f3bd) is the git
commit used for the build.

So -- i don't know how you installed linuxcnc-uspace
and furthermore i don't know where you got the rt
kernel with version 5.6.19-rt12 (i don't imagine that
kernel was available directly with xubuntu 18.04)

If the linuxnc-uspace package was built before the
merge-to-master date for switchkins (19jun21), it will
not have the switchkins functionality.

If you installed using someone's instructions, maybe
they can help you but using (x)ubuntu and/or a
non-buildbot provided deb package for the current
master branch is not something i am familiar with
and it may not be possible with the pending updates for
python3/gtk3 (see the following notes).

#
NOTE: With the pending (end-of-july) merge of the
branch master-gtk3, using any distro besides buster to
get master branch features is going to be problematic
for a while if you don't want to use buster or build
a run-in-place system.

Ref: github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/pull/1164
Ref: www.mail-archive.com/emc-developers@lists.sourceforge.net/msg21751.html

NOTE: the buildbot now makes master branch deb
packages ONLY for buster rtpreempt (32bit==i386 and
64bit==amd64 and rpi4): (no rtai, no ubuntu, no lucid,
no wheezy, no jessie, just buster )

Ref: buildbot.linuxcnc.org/buildbot/grid
Ref: github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/commit/323a1e5adc

#
In summary, for the current master branch one must now
use buster or use a run-in-place install.

#
I did a test in a virtual machine to see how to
install a master branch deb for buster rtpreempt):

1) From the page linuxcnc.org/downloads/
   download and install the iso:
   Edit latest is: www.linuxcnc.org/iso/linuxcnc-2.8.2-buster.iso

2) test (2.8) by starting linuxcnc and running a sim config like:
   configs/sim/axis/axis.ini

3) Add the buildbot packages by following the instructions:
   buildbot.linuxcnc.org/

   NOTE:
   I skipped the step for 'sudo apt-key adv ...' because
   the required keys are preinstalled when using an
   iso and there is a known problem with the specified
   keyserver:
   Ref: github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/issues/1209

   Adding repositories for buildbot master can be done
   in synaptic or by editing (sudo reqd) the file
   /etc/apt/sources.list to add these lines:

   deb     http://buildbot.linuxcnc.org/ buster master-rtpreempt
   deb-src http://buildbot.linuxcnc.org/ buster master-rtpreempt


4) After adding the repositories, i used synaptic to
   reload and then upgraded to latest package for the
   master branch:
      linuxcnc-uspace 1:2.9.0~pre.4140.gb54a9f3bd

Hello ,

thank you for all this information, so you advise me to come back to www.linuxcnc.org/iso/linuxcnc-2.8.0-buster.iso.

I have no problem with that, I dedicated a "PC" machine only to do the Linuxcnc installations.

1) I reinstall debian 10 with linuxcnc 2.8 (www.linuxcnc.org/iso/linuxcnc-2.8.0-buster.iso)

 2) I update the repositories with synaptic.

- deb buildbot.linuxcnc.org/ buster master-rtpreempt

 - deb-src buildbot.linuxcnc.org/ buster master-rtpreempt

3)after I come back to you to install my 5axis TCP config.

thank you

Hi JackRay
I am in the same state with you and i created the topic link
forum.linuxcnc.org/16-stepconf-wizard/43...all-5-axis-knematics
Can we discus on that topic for every one new user for reference. Thank you.
