Somehow the deb pack wont install properly, had to run manually sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https and sudo apt-get install nativecam for it to work.
The https was the key it did not get installed for what ever reason.

After that I updated to 2.7.14 and now everything works.
Thanks guys for trying to help.

I just ran the installation per the instructions for executing the text file & installing it as a .deb.

Here's the output:
$ sudo bash ncam_debsetup.txt

But, when I enter 'ncam' at the command prompt, I get 'Command 'ncam' not found'. Same thing if I type './ncam'.

I don't know where it is installing the program and I can't find it in Synaptic Package Manager.

Any suggestions? I'm running LinuxCNC v2.8 on Mint v19.3

The attached procedure describes how I successfully installed NCam and embedded it in LinuxCNC. I hope this helps.

Cheers,

Barry

Hi,
I can't get Nativecam installed on a new milling machine (Hurco BMC 40).
Apparently I have python installed but not python-lxml.
Python-lxml does not appear in synaptic.
I tried to install it from a deb file but some dependencies (python:any and libxml2) prevent me from doing so.
Since debian's been archived, I can't install much of anything.
What do you have in your source list file?
I've already installed nativecam for other machines but each time I'm struggling a little bit more! I don't understand much about Linux.

Thanks.
Bruno

Bruno, I hope someone will answer your question because I ran into the exact same problem when transferring all of my Wheezy CNC files to a new computer with a fresh installation of Wheezy this past week. I worked on it for countless hours and could not figure out how to install python-lxml. Cloning it from Get-hub is not a problem...just open a terminal and type

git clone github.com/lxml/lxml.git lxml

but then I did not have "pip" to be able to install it. So then I worked on trying to figure out how to install "pip" to be able to run....... sudo pip install lxml.

I did a lot more things and got close but could never get it to fully work. So I gave up and downloaded an iso of Debian 9.0 Stretch to a DVD and installed Stretch. Everything went very smoothly after that and I was able to quickly embed NCAM into the Linuxcnc Axis program, and my CNC was up and running again. I actually like Stretch better than Wheezy.

Note: Once you solve the python-lxml issue, the next issue is figuring out how to install gladevcp if you plan to embed NCAM into Linuxcnc Axis.

If you choose to move to Debian 9 - Stretch and want the installation directions that I documented to repeat the process if necessary, just let me know and I'll post them.

Good luck,

Barry

Thank you for your response Barry.
I managed to install python-lxml with pip.
Indeed, now I have a gladevcp error: could not create GladeXML object.
glade-gtk2 was already installed...

So, I'll take your advice about Debian 9.0 Stretch.

Thanks.

Hi,
I set up Debian 9.0 Stretch found here (i386 r13):
www.linuxcnc.org/testing-stretch-rtpreempt/

I have the same error with gladevcp.
This is the 4th pc where I install nativecam, the other times were easier!

Hi,
I finally made it.
I had Debian 9 installed with no network. That's a bad idea.

Thanks.
Bruno
