Here is the picture of my floppyCNC, FYI.
The Z axis is reversed, that's why I invert the PIN 6 (Z-Direction)

Hi dear,
I'm installing linuxcnc from source (2.9 version) on a RPi4. 
Software building runs fine, no error at all but I cannot start in simulation mode to make my first tests.

I mean, I run the following on the command line:
. /home/pi/linuxcnc/scripts/rip-environment
linuxcnc

Then I select any default configuration among qtdragon, qmoccapy, even axis and always get the same in my linuxcnc_debug.txt:
Can not find -sec TRAJ -var TPMOD -num 1 
Can not find -sec EMCMOT -var HOMEMOD -num 1 

Here is my log:

as well as in the output of the shell command 'dmesg' and in the terminal

Here is my linuxcnc_debug.txt:

I can't figure out what is happening. Whatever example configuration I try, I always get the same error basically. I am absolutely lost.
Any addressing will be appreciated!

Thanks in advance.

PS: I realize LINUXCNC_DIR, TPMOD and HOMEMOD are in blanks but, I don't know if it is ok for a default simulation configuration nor where to set up to try.

This seems to be related to recent changes made to allow pluggable trajectory planners and homing modules.

I wonder if this is Pi-specific? Otherwise I would have expected to hear more about it.

When did you last do a git pull? Possibly this was spotted and fixed.

Hi andypugh, thanks for reply!

Sorry to hear this. I installed version 2.9 on a RPi3 about a year ago and works fine, although a little slow. I was hopping on a RPi4 runs a little faster.

When did you last do a git pull? Possibly this was spotted and fixed.

I pulled the source about 2 weeks ago.

There have been hundreds of changes in the last 2 weeks. Definitely worth a pull and re-build.

The likely first fatal error reported is:

The required package (master branch) is python3-xlib:
Ref: github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/blob/master...n/control.top.in#L36

Install using:
$ sudo apt-get install python3-xlib

Example test to verify presence:

$ dpkg -l python3-xlib|grep ii
ii python3-xlib 0.29-1 all interface for Python 3 to the X11 protocol

$ python3

Sorry Dewey, I was trying to clear a forum backlog and clearly didn't read the output carefully enough.

Hi dgarrett, thanks for getting involved!

> from Xlib.protocol import event
> ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'Xlib'

Yes dear, you are right but I underestimate this error because AFAIR it did not appear when I was testing for Axis (and Gmoccapy I think). So, I understand that the only common errors among all the GUIs I tested (QtDragon, Gmoccapy and Axis) were:

> Can not find -sec TRAJ -var TPMOD -num 1
> Can not find -sec EMCMOT -var HOMEMOD -num 1


On the other hand, I trust in you:

> Can not find -sec TRAJ -var TPMOD -num 1
> Can not find -sec EMCMOT -var HOMEMOD -num 1

The above (irrelevant) messages have been silenced:
Ref:  github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/commit/e54a8abb3e

But all this comments AFAIU, don't match to me. In Axis the python3-xlib problem did not appear, but all the above did.
So now, I'm getting so lost! 

Anyway, I'll do all you suggest:
1 - I'll do a brand new pull from git 
2 - I'll install the python3-xlib

Many thanks dgarrett!

Hi andypugh, dgarrett!

I did all what you suggest but none of it worked, sorry.

I send you my recent testing logs about qtdragon_auto_tool_probe simulation mode.
I ran dmesg --clear too before run linuxcnc, so dmseg output keeps clean before and after.

I'm absolutely stuck, so any tip are welcome! 

Thanks in advance!
