It is saying that it is broken.

I have used Snowy's great tutorial in the past with out issues

Does LinuxCNC start?


I am still getting the "linuxcnc-uspace" with the red question mark ie broken package.

I will have to try aging tomorrow. Thanks

It works !!!! kind of.

I have just followed this process (as completely as I could) and I have the cnc running again almost. Great work snowgoer540 for such an incredible and complete resource. 

Currently just trying to get the final piece of code for the torch probe (switch works, shows on Hal that it activating) just doesn't stop the z axis from driving down into material. 

I'm hoping tonight I'll get back down to the shed to have another go at sorting this out. I do have a machine that homes and moves (albeit without the keyboard inputs yet, that may be on the list for things to do tonight as well).

As soon as we are running I'll post up some pics.

Ok after many hours (my fault) wrong kernel !!!

IN this step.
35.Enter the following command: /usr/lib/python3/dist-
packages/qtvcp/designer/install_script
36.When prompted, enter 1 (unless the user intends to do design work in QtVCP

But I get this. I can load a linuxcnc sim

Sorry Clive, there is an issue with the package build, it confuses the filename and directory name. I will push a fix today. In the meantime you should be able to run it with the following command:
/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/qtvcp/designer
If you did do a package install then you don't need to run the script unless you want Designer so that you can edit/make GUI files.

Whoops, don't think I knew that. Maybe I should probably amend the install guide to say that...
