This is an easy way to have Linuxcnc running very quickly on Linux Mint 19.1
-Install Linux Mint 19.1
-Download and install using gdebi a kernel from this link
simosnet.com/debian/packages/Konalinux/debian/kernel/
linux-headers-4.16.12-rt5-kona-rt_amd64.deb
and
linux-image-4.16.12-rt5-kona-rt_amd64.deb
Restart, hold down shift and ctrl to show grub2 menu, choose the above kernel
-Download and install using gdebi the version of Linuxcnc you want
buildbot.linuxcnc.org/~buildmaster/dists/stretch/
Enjoy !
Tested on two computers, version 2.8 and 2.9 work.
Warning !
I found those kernels by searching google, i have no idea if we can use them but since they are as Debian packages i assume it is OK to use them. Also the link to buildmaster is hard to find, so if it is not supposed to be shown here, please do remove this post.
Thank you.
