Glade 3.20.will not work with LinuxCNC , please follow this for 3.8.6
Trying to pull up some of the sample gmoccapy demo screens and not getting anywhere.
Says can't find gladevcp libraries and get a bunch of errors the HAL libraries are depreciated and I need to run 3.8 first.
So is 3.18 not supported which is what is in the package installer?
I need to uninstall it, and look for old code and build from scratch again?
Boy no wonder LinuxCNC is not for the faint of heart. LOL

On my Mint install I get Unable to locate package glade-gtk2
Trying to compile it but errors on the dependencies which appear to be met already.

You may be able to get it that way.
What version of Mint are you using?
Thanks for the distro link! Plenty of things to try. Going to try the Glade first. Not against starting over. My laptop has issues with the wheezy distro RIP thou.... That's why I resorted to building from source.
the executable is called glade-gtk2 and if you are running Linuxcnc from the command prompt as run in place, you need to run the rip-environment script as advised in the documentation otherwise the hal components are not found and will be deleted from your screen designs.
When I fire it off, I get all sorts of warning about missing icons... but none seem to be in the GUI so I don't know. Keep plugging away for now.
Pay careful attention to the three leading dots. required exactly as shown (space in between . and ..)
Installed Mint 18.2 AMD64 with 4.11.12 rt13 patch
the two DEBS as discussed before.
All seemed well.
BUT now, if I start a new project in glade-gtk2
Add a main window to the project
Add an about window (actually any type of additional window frame)
The application closes promptly, and the terminal window simply shows.
Any ideas at all anyone? Bad kernel selection? Or related to glade-gtk2?
Started over again on two completely different machines, built kernel 4.8.15-rt10 as 184.108.40.206 is what comes with Mint 18.2 64
Tried it with the DEB
Tried it compiling 3.8.6
All with exactly the same result add two window types and crash. Haven't really tried working with the program, as I can't do the 2nd tutorial on using it for LinuxCNC.
The only thing different is the first time when it worked before the rebuild I was on i386. Guess I will have to try i386 on one of them to see if it behaves any differently.
Guess I have to go back and try
