It was only removed because there was a glitch in a dependency library that since been worked around.
That is now resolved.

Yeah, i was in Istambull for the last two days, still last night the search showed only sid.
How does the updating of that April build go ? A lot of changes since then, especially in QtPlasmaC thanks to Phill and Snowwy.
The time cruch is on for me, a friend got delivery of a full water botle line, from granulate to packaging of filed bottles, so the only time for my stuff is evenings.

Yeh, I've been flat out so not here much either. It was automatically removed by the debian build system when a libtiff bug broke our build process. That was fixed on 14 July. Maybe somebody had to sign off on something.

I think its a good thing that Debian is also reviewing our code base now. It must add another layer of robustness.

Anyway mint 20 with linuxcnc 2.8.3 with Tom's instructions is fine, it also halved me following error. I don't understand why Debian despite being at the base of most systems always has annoying problems like geany not opening in axis and multiple network icons. i installed debian 10 to try probe basic also works well but basically i prefer the simplicity of axis. the only thing I really need is the remap m6, as sometimes I make printed circuit boards and being able to change tips would be useful. There are many threads talking about this but with all versions I am confused. if you can show me where to look you who know English well ... for mint 28.3 thank you

You are on Mint 28.3!!! How? :)
If you have no tool changer, adding tools to the tool table with the correct offsets and calling them form gcode should do just fine.
Granted, there is a home switch on the Z axis so it always homes at the same possition.

mint 20 linuxcnc 2.8.3 :-)
the problem is that I have an er11 and an er 16 spindle both have no fixed position for the tool like a drill chuck. now i'm doing some tests i found some instructions that seem to work. to think that I had already done it about ten years ago but I don't remember anything :-) we get old
