Thanks a million Norbert!

I was starting from scratch and following your directions exactly, and at the same time wanted to check out my existing install that I had issues with. Simply added your dependency list for Glade-3 and BAM... I was missing something (even though it had compiled without errors). Installed that, got the 3.8.6 source again, recompiled, and adding anything now works! And this is on a RT Kernel as well.

So others, follow the Instructions on installing a runtime kernel in the Install forum. I was successful with 4.8.11-rt7 on Mint 18.2 xfce.
Then follow Norbert's guide for Glade and LinuxCNC. And yes I did use Glade 3.8.6 as it is simply listed as a minor bug fix, so thought might as well.

For more Linux rookies... For the compliers you may need to use
sudo make install
as Mint is not a fan of switching to su.

THANKS AGAIN!

EDIT: Just to be clear, this machine I actually followed the Install guide all the way though to Installing LinuxCNC if you want a RT Kernel and a non RIP LinuxCNC do that and just do Norbert's first part which is what I ultimately ended up doing. But, Norbert had the correct items needed and made all the difference in the world.

Following Norbert's guide to the letter for my laptop used to just edit code and don't want RT. Learned so much in this tread... :)

Glad you got it sorted.

Just one thing though. I found using sudo make did not build the system correctly and I had a lot of permissions issues until I redid it just using make. I remember it was a very frustrating time until I worked it out.

Please do never use sudo make!!!!

It can be necessary to use sudo make install!
I may have forgotten the sudo at the step of installing glade3, i will update the HowTo to wget 3.8.6 and check about forgotten sudos!

About the dependencies:
I am sure you only missed python-gtkglext1, that one is not needed to run glade-3, but without it you will not be able to edit any glade file containing hal_gremlin, that is the reason i added this dependencies!

@pcw

I'm pretty sure the GUI launcher does this
however


No, if you have a rip version and a installed version, just typing linuxcnc will bring up 2.7 and if you do first the . ./scripts/rip-environment, linuxcnc command will bring up 2.8!

I made short bash scripts and added launchers to the desktop, so i can start rip configs just clicking on the desktop icon.

I just tried this and it does work, that is, the GUI launcher is smart enough to launch the correct
RIP LinuxCNC version _IF_ you start the launcher in the correct RIP environment
(and create the desktop ICON from the launcher started in the desired environment)

I run the rip-environment script from the mint startup applications so it always works if called from the IDE via a shortcut but I still need to run the script to run from the command line
Also a couple of desktop shortcuts are handy

LinuxCNC Chooser : runs the standard chooser window: /home/plasma/linuxcnc-dev/scripts/linuxcnc
LinuxCNC Last: runs the last config that you've run: /home/plasma/linuxcnc-dev/scripts/linuxcnc -l

@all,

I just updated the HowTO to fetch glade3-3.8.6 and corrected the errors of the install commands of glade3.
(sudo or not sudo was the question ;-)


@PCW,
You are right, if you start the config picker from a rip-environment shell, it does it correct, I just thought you was thinking about starting it from a not rip-environment.

@all
here a short script to run a config from rip environment:
#!/bin/bash

cd /home/gmoccapy/linuxcnc-dev
. ./scripts/rip-environment
linuxcnc /home/gmoccapy/linuxcnc-dev/configs/Testconfig_7i76e.ini

And the desktop icon would be something like (Chinamon):
[Desktop Entry]
Comment=start mill
Terminal=true
Name=startmill
Exec=/home/gmoccapy/bin/startmill
Type=Application
Icon=/home/gmoccapy/Bilder/Logo.png

Glade throws a lot off warnings as errors, so do you have the hal widgets? Is it possible to creare a glade pannel?

If so, all is ok.

Norbert

If it says "Warning" you can ignore it. Only worry about "Error"
