You have to pass the dxf through a CAM program to generate the G Code needed by EMC.

Some more info here:

I have no idea which cam program is most popular, my personal favorite it OneCNC. Windows and Linux can both see a dxf file.

My favorite CAM program for linux is HeeksCAD/HeeksCNC. It runs on Windows too.

I'm sure you didn't download OneCNC as it costs $2k to $6k and won't run without a hardware dongle.

I have no idea what NClink is.
