Have you tested this with Gmoccapy or do you know if anyone has?

Hmmm... Features is based on GladeVCP so probably it can be packed into Gmoccapy, but it calls axis-remote to reload the file - so that can cause problem...
subprocess.call(["axis-remote",PROGRAM_PREFIX + "/features.ngc"])
You can try at least pack it to Gnomocapy, then we will thik of how to make it reload the Gcode...

I have no calculators widgets in my xml files. Am I missing something to install?

Can you attach your xml file...

Hmm strange....where did you get LinuxCNC from?
anyway, first pack of code should be placed before
<!-- Actions -->
Second inside tag glade-widget-group
<glade-widget-group name="python" title="HAL Python">

Have a look at my post #44102 one page back, there is everything you need to get features running.

Hope that helps

It loads fine but it seems that here could be a permissions problem as I cannot save anything nor will it post to axis. Must I set something somewhere that I missed maybe?

If I were you I'd start over my install instructions, you need to start the Linuxcnc configuration as below

- First start by going into the Linuxcnc configuration selector and choose ngcgui -- comprehensive example and let it copy all the files

I can't recall but I think I did all that as my normal user, not as root or sudo

heres a page that shows a screen shot of the initial Linuxcnc configuration selector
