thinking about it...... there may be a quicker / easier way than building debs on your local machine.....

Just install a clean version of debian bullseye
I would recommend:
cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/no....0-amd64-netinst.iso

then just install the debs from the buildbot respostory for linuxcnc and install them:
buildbot.linuxcnc.org/dists/buster/maste...reempt/binary-amd64/

basically just look for the newest date ones:
you only need:
buildbot.linuxcnc.org/dists/buster/maste...g433a36711_amd64.deb
buildbot.linuxcnc.org/dists/buster/maste...g433a36711_amd64.deb
buildbot.linuxcnc.org/dists/buster/maste...1.g433a36711_all.deb

install each of the debs using:
sudo dpkg -i <packagename>.deb

and you SHOULD have a working linuxcnc distro.....

there may be dependencies when you try to install the deb files.... just install them

(I can give you a walkthrough tomorrow night if you want)

I really appreciate your detailed help on this, thanks!

I’ll try the bullseye/lcnc 2.9 (yes, not “9”) install tomorrow as per your instructions and let you know how it goes. (I’m in the U.S. Pacific time.)

(Btw, I’m using linuxcnc for a 3-axis homemade CNC router.)

Thanks again!

I'm in the UK on GMT+1/ Zulu+1 time (British summer time).

I'll set up a pc with bullseye and the current master from debs so if you have issues I should have the same ones

give me a few hours need to get the day job out of the way :)

Thanks for that. But can you be more specific with the commands and file locations? I haven’t used buildbot before.

And will I end up with. Debian 11 and Linuxcnc 9? I plan to work with qtpyvcp so I think those are prerequisits.

Thanks!
 


Hmm.... lets take a step back.... What is your final destination for qtpyvcp?

what GUI do you want to run?

are you looking for ProbeBasic?

I ask because the instructions for ProbeBasic are confusing..... (bare with me, before the posts start flying).

probe basics install instructions are written for BUSTER + LinuxCNC 2.8
kcjengr.github.io/probe_basic/index.html

qtpyvcp install instructions and recommendations are to use Debian 11 and Master.
www.qtpyvcp.com/install/bullseye.html
or at least some of them are....

I've set up a debian 11 / bullseye machine (clean install) and got as far as a working qtpyvcp install.... then I've come to add probebasic and the dependencies listed are all python(2)....!!!

I've just remembered that there is another branch for probe basic!!! which is the python3 branch.  Just remember why I hated the install last time.
github.com/kcjengr/probe_basic/tree/python3

QTPyVCP "master" branch is for Python3.
ProbeBasic "master" is for Python2!!!!


again what is your final destination ..... what gui do you want to install??

Great questions. I was actually creating my own linuxcnc gui in qtpyvcp, incorporating a lot of Probe Basic features. (Mainly because Probe Basic requires Python2 and I like the challenge of creating it myself  .)  As I said, I had a working Bullseye, lcnc2.9, qtpyvcp system running. I got pretty far along with my gui. Then, I think because of an improper pc shutdown, something broke. I started a topic about it here . My problem never got solved so I reinstalled Bullseye and ran into an issue installing lcnc2.9 which is the subject of this topic.

So, now I have a(nother!) fresh install of Bullseye and am ready to install lcnc2.9 and qtpyvcp.

I notice that the lcnc debs you listed in a previous post were all located in a Buster directory. Is this what I want?

I believe I did have success following the instructions for the Bullseye installation of lcnc2.9 and qtpyvcp on qtpyvcp.com.

Again, I really appreciate your help on this!!

if you follow this / these you will get a working linuxcnc install of bullseye and 2.9

forum.linuxcnc.org/show-your-stuff/45039...etup?start=10#243886

I have had pyqtvcp running once with it earlier in the day, I am just testing the second install of pyqtvcp.... hence it WILL work up to the qtpyvcp part ..... after that I would wait.... I need to test something else

I can now confirm that if you follow the sequence up to the
PROBE BASIC
on the above post of mine it WILL install
Debian Bullseye 11 + Linuxcnc + QTPyVCP and it WILL work.

Thanks for that!!

I posted a few questions about the sequence in that thread. When I hear back, I'll give it a try.
Thanks again for all your work and help!

Quick question-- do you use timeshift? It would be really nice to not have to reinstall everything on a little glitch...
