Thanks, you always have the answers......

I just connected 24vdc to my test 7i92 on the 5v terminals. So I dont think I will be able to test it here.....

Forgot the version question...

If you can run QtPlasmaC, the version is always in the header of the window.  

Alternatively, when you make a backup (which would be a good way to transfer configs between machines btw) it will put the version number as part of the log file name.

Lastly, if you cant run qtplasmac, you can find the version number on the first line of the handler file (qtplasmac_handler.py).  For a package install, it is found here:  
/usr/share/qtvcp/screens/qtplasmac

Now thats what I call solid. Applied 5vdc to the 7i92 and it came right up. Mesa must have some protection on it or a regulator. Didnt damage it, qtplasmac came up also. 
What is the latest version of QTplasmac? Just want to make sure it is correct on mine.

This was my experience as well on MX 21 nothing worked correctly for ME.

But retrying on 19.4 was seemless only one booboo from a incorrectly formated copy/paste.

Thanks to all that put in the work to make this possible for the rest of us.

I did not wait for Mint 21 ! :)
I found a way to compile and install on Mint 20.3 in about 20 to 50 minutes, depending on the processor power, by removing the building of documents entirely.
Why the hell would it build and delete each document several times, like a lot of times, a lot.....

how did you remove the building of documents?

nodocs has not worked for me for a while now (think it was blamed on Debian repository bookworm changes required to remove it)

I never use the local docs just the website docs

The no-docs switch (./configure uspace no-docs) should be fixed for building debian package building now.
