The only difference between the working and broken .ini files are the lines from Verser's install instructions.

broken ini:

# overwritten when you run stepconf again

There is a syntax error.
To repair attach here your broken ini.

You have moved a number of INI entries from one section to another.

The actual error message is because the system isn't finding any entry at all called "MAX_FEED_OVERRIDE" in the [DISPLAY] section because you have moved it into the [TOOLSENSOR] section.

1. Error: .ini file sections are confused. INI Configuration .
2. Text from the .axisrc file do not need to put in the .ini file.

Thank you for the assistance and the link.
I will read the whole Ini configuration instructions when I get home. Now that I can see the correct configuration it makes sense that LinuxCNC is having issues with my broken ini.

Thank you for the help Verser.
I now get the probe screen but also get an error 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'rfind'
I canceled the error and attempted to run the probing routine ( no probe installed to be safe) and get numerous "Unable to open file" errors . Pressing probe down generates no move and Error: Unable to open file <down>, pressing X- moves the spindle down and generates Error: Unable to open file <xminus>, pressing X-Y- out moves the table - and spindle down and generates Error: Unable to open file <xminus>
Seems the program gets lost before the last rapid move is called, just before the measurement routine should start.
I have attached my .ini .hal and output from dmesg and a couple of screen shots, perhaps this information will help diagnose the reason for this behavior.

Please show me the look of a full path to the down.ngc on your computer.

Here is a screen capture showing the location of the down.ngc

If I am reading this file structure properly it is Home/dave/linuxcnc/configs/ShopFoxMill/subroutines

Second screen shot shows errors produced for pressing Y- X- Y+ X+ all produced a move of the head toward the table then an error.
Pressing probe down produces error with no head movement. Pressing cylinder produced head down table left moves then error.

I am not sure if this error is connected to the unable to open file down.ngc error but it only happens with the modified .ini for work with probe.
