I've not tried running the configuration tool on the RPi4 but it should just work as they are both debian. I may try today as I got the RPi4 going with preemt rt and LinuxCNC and was working out the details for setting up a static IP needed for the Mesa Ethernet cards.

Looking forward to your test, I am not quite yet there as I am awaiting for the 7i96 to arrive.

Cheers

ps I have Hakan's RPi4 on a long loan to evaluate if I can get my PlasmaC to run in my rig.

I see the .xsessionrc file in the home dir /home/ and it opens showing the file :-

if [ -d $HOME/.local/bin ]; then
export PATH="$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH"
fi

is this correct if so how do I start the configuration

If you mean start a configuration created by the configuration tool, you start LinuxCNC and pick it from the list My Configurations.

After fixing the path and logging out and back in or rebooting then from then on you just open a terminal and type in
7i96

With all the different OS's I never did get around to making a desktop file for it.

I have tried putting 7i96 in a terminal and it reports back bash:7i96: command not found

How can I check if the path is correct

Open a terminal where the tool is located and try :
./7i96
Or
Python 7i96

Umm a reload is not needed...

Can you see the 7i96 file with ls? if not, ./7i96 will not work as that means execute the 7i96 file in the current directory
