I'm trying to get the example mdi action to work, but it never seems to fire.

In my .ini file I have...

[DISPLAY]
EMBED_TAB_NAME=who
EMBED_TAB_COMMAND=gladevcp -c uiWhoAreYou -x {XID} /home/frankt/linuxcnc-dev/configs/apps/gladevcp/mdi-command-example/whoareyou.ui


The panel appears in axis, and I can press the button, but the mdi message doesn't appear. I can manually type the command (MSG,"Hello") in the MDI and that works correctly.

Am I missing something?

I'm using master from a couple of weeks ago.

It's the stock example in the configs directory. I am running on an old Ubuntu 12.04 Virtual Machine. Is it maybe an old version of a library?
