It seems like that link to the RT kernel is no longer working. I'm very, very new to linux and linux CNC and am a bit overwhelmed by all the options when I just search RT kernel. Any advice?

Any thoughts on how to install linuxcnc-dev on mint 21?... Well I just grabbed the uspace-dev.deb off the repo in the same wget fashion as the linuxcnc-uspace was grabbed in the instructions. But I'm still curious as to why I can't install via apt when the repos are added. What's with the python version issues?
 sudo apt install linuxcnc-uspace-dev

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 linuxcnc-uspace : Depends: python3 (< 3.8) but 3.10.6-1~22.04 is to be installed
                   Depends: libboost-python1.67.0 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libpython3.7 (>= 3.7.0) but it is not installable
                   Depends: libreadline5 (>= 5.2) but it is not installable
...


More importantly... Where has the maximize button gone to? Mint 21+cinnamon results in the maximize button disappearing. It's there in other apps... It is available if I switch to mate but it doesn't actually maximize the window. It squares out the corners of the window as though it was maximized, but the window dimensions do not actually change. Please Ignore the terrible screenshot quality, it was taken over a compressed VNC session and is not related to the issue.

What repos?
Nowhere in this tutorial is adding repos mentioned.
The package must be from the debian repo, again you or i did not add repos, here:
http.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/l/li...744cdef6-1_amd64.deb

Screen/resolution to small, there is no space where to maximize anything.

I tried adding the buildbot repos. buildbot.linuxcnc.org/ to get the linuxcnc-dev package initially. Seemed like the thing to do to me.

Nope! :)
At the very beginning it says:
-LinuxCNC Master is still in development, although it is reliable, something might now work
-LinuxCNC version is from the Debian repositories, dated 06 September of this year.
