That was something I was looking for.
with a

sudo apt-get install grub-customizer
sudo grub-customizer

a graphical tool can be installed to move the extended Options
with the RT Kernel to the top at the bootstart

No need for that, Debian 10 uses the same kernel as default without RT, so when you install RT it becomes the default.
If it was needed, i would have posted it. I did remove the pressing ctrl+shift after double checking, in the original post.

Added some more info to the original post regarding USB Wi-Fi dongles not working.
The issues is as follows: It can see Wi-Fi access points but it will not connect to them.
Synopsis: naming issue, namely issuing very long names for Wi-Fi devices to such an extent of making them useless.
Solution on the first post of this thread.
Tested and working with 3 different types of USB Wi-Fi dongles.

Tom for us thickies :ohmy:

This is the easiest way to get Linuxcnc working on Debian Buster:
--Download the non-free version of Debian as the free version has no proprietary drivers included and may result in non functioning hardware, from here
-
cdimage.debian.org/images/unofficial/non...-live+nonfree/amd64/


From the long list ISO section, which of the non-free should I be using for Mesa stuff and or PPort B)

The LXQT desktop looks promising.

This is my series of commands as derived from the original post. Should be able to copy and paste this right into a terminal with comments and all. Perhaps the LinuxCNC can just include the python-gtksourceview2 in their repository for the Buster branch?
# Return to your home folder
cd
# Download python-gtksourceview2 since it doesn't exist in Debian Buster
wget http://http.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/p/pygtksourceview/python-gtksourceview2_2.10.1-3_amd64.deb
# Load GPG keys for LinuxCNC
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver ha.pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-keys EF1B07FEE0EE663E
# Create APT source entry
echo "deb     http://buildbot.linuxcnc.org/ buster 2.8-rtpreempt" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linuxcnc.list
echo "deb-src http://buildbot.linuxcnc.org/ buster 2.8-rtpreempt" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linuxcnc.list
# Update APT
sudo apt update
# Install gdebi and Linux RT
sudo apt install gdebi linux-headers-4.19.0-8-common-rt linux-headers-4.19.0-8-rt linux-image-4.19.0-8-rt-amd64
# Install python-gtksourceview2 from our downloaded deb file
sudo gdebi python-gtksourceview2_2.10.1-3_amd64.deb
# Install LinuxCNC
sudo apt install linuxcnc-uspace linuxcnc-uspace-dbgsym linuxcnc-uspace-dev linuxcnc-doc-en
# Reboot system
sudo reboot

I want to install new machine on Buster and want to be sure for this. Sorry if i ask wrong question but i'v read from developers mails, that in LCNC code in this moment something is not compatible with buster because it is not supporting Python 2.xx Only support 3.xx . Is this true and did i will have some problems in running the software and his futures with Buster..

tommylight keep the great work..

Thanks...
