In the case of SheetCAM the problem probably is that the file is not marked as "executable".
The file has probably ended up in the "Downloads" folder of your hime directory.
If you go in there and find it, you should be able to right-click on the file and set it to "executable" in the properties dialog.
Then double-click ought to work.

Alternatively you can do it at the command-line, but the GUI way is probably more familiar.

Put the f-engrave file in a place where you can find it.
Then start linuxcnc and click "Open" to load a file.

Choose the f-engrave.py file.

linuxcnc will start f-engrave.

When the code is generated, in f-engrave choose "write to axis and exit"

The code will be transfered to linuxcnc and f-engrave will close. Save the new code from within linuxcnc.

importError: No Module named pyclipper
Already tried to install pyclipper via terminal, sudo apt-get install python3-pyclipper. but without success
What am I doing wrong?

Try

You may need to install pip/pip3
