I'm going to try sheetcam too and see if that works (it was not happy yesterday with some GTK issues.... maybe it will play nice or run it via PlayOnLinux

In this post on the sheetcam forum, Les sorted out my sheetcam problems, both the theme and also how to import a toolset that keeps its names...

Gotta hand it to him. He gives amazing support!

Title changed and moved to "installing LinuxCNC".
Is this OK ?

Hi tommylight,

I currently runing Debian 11 on my Arm Soc Board of the projecet, And I try to use the method you shared in the post below:

forum.linuxcnc.org/9-installing-linuxcnc...easy-install?start=0

after sudo gdebi libboost-python1.62.0_1.62.0+dfsg-4_armhf.deb
I don't get luck with sudo gdebi python-gtk2_2.24.0-5.1_armhf.deb
System like to tell me they won't like the Python 2.66 or 2.7 which I did not install them.
I try to use apt remove, but found nothing.
I also try to compile python 2.6 from Source with no luck.
Any Idea how I can solve it?

So I blew the Linux installation on my chromebook. This is my final list of dependencies

These Libraries may be requiredlibreadline-dev (might need to be used in place of libreadline-gplv2-dev above)
libeditreadline-dev Gmocappy opened but gremlin preview was broken because the Chromebook uses Wayland not X11 (if that means anything to you)

Hope this helps. I've now fully documented the process.

Also, after building, don't forget to set up the QT environment for QTplasmac by running this script.
~/linuxcnc-dev/lib/python/qtvcp/designer/install_script

thanks all for your help plus renaming the topic (did not know I needed to do it on the 1st post, will do for next time)

if you feel the need to set up a proper thread showing the systematic RIP install and required dependencies for Debian 11 bullseye, please feel free.

​​​what is the significance of the warnings noted in the terminal for Gmoccapy at QTPlasmaC.... do they need fixing (is it just functions that are deprecated in gtk3 and QT?)

I was trying to get the latency-histogram running last night (in the scripts folder and it did not seem happy (I just wanted to check the latency numbers, don't expect any issues as I haven't touched the bios and also use ethtool to get rid of the intel nic issue via the etc/network/interfaces file)

there is a development release of sheetcam here which Les has updated in light of Debian 11 and sheetcam looking for a "version 7" library which is now version 8

Just a  heads up I installed Debian 11 on my production machine the last couple of days and followed pretty much what was documented above. Debian 11 only has Python 3.9 so there is nothing for linuxcnc to get confused about. My earlier Mint 19.3 based machine was stuck on Python 3.6 and Linux master branch needs 3.7 or above.

I used the non-free DVD ISO you can find here:
cdimage.debian.org/mirror/cdimage/unoffi...-including-firmware/

grub-customizer is now included in the Debian distros so everything you need can be sorted via synaptic.

On my J1900 Baytrail chipset PC, isolcpus=1,2,3 idle=poll made an enormous difference to latency. from 186k to 22.3k with the internal wifi installed. A very interesting advancement I picked up off the forum here.

When I chose the GUI, I only chose XFCE and I found I did not have a GUI tool for network config. I think that was becasue I did not install gnome. I had to resort to using the config files to set a fixed IP for my mesa card.

Gmocappy did not run and I thought it was python3 compatible so I will look into that as I suspect I missed a dependancy.

One addition I did was to set up a FTP server whose home directory is the nc-files folder so I can upload files from Windows.

I'll try and document it all when I get a chance.
