I don't know, then.

I guess you can jog the machine normally, but the buttons on the probe screen don't work?

Yes, joging is possible, only the buttons on the probe screen don't work.

Looking in the glade file:
github.com/verser-git/probe_screen_v2/bl...e_screen.glade#L1117
The jog buttons should call the handler "on_btn_jog_pressed"
This should be handled in the python file:
github.com/verser-git/probe_screen_v2/bl...probe_screen.py#L360

That contains a comment about being in manual mode. Which GUI are you using? Some make manual mode more obvious than others.

I would be tempted to add a tell-tale in on_btn_pressed to make sure that the routine is called. something like "print("somebody pressed my buttons")" right after the def command, and indented the same as the self.command.mode line.
(Though I think you would need to start linuxcnc from the command line to _see_ the output of the print command. If you don't know how to do that, just open a terminal and type "linuxcnc")

Did you add a debug print to the Python handler? And is anything printed when you press the button?

It is _possible_ that the too-many-increments is breaking it.

Maybe you can try revised version :
github.com/alkabal/probe-screen-ng
or
github.com/linuxcnc-probe-screen/probe-screen-ng

Yes you need to have less than 5 value for jog increment in you ini file


[DISPLAY]
...
...
INCREMENTS = 1mm .1mm .05mm .01mm .001mm


I also use a XHC-WHB04b-6 with revised probe screen.
