Why is Plasmac and QTplasmac pausing at the end of a cut for no reason?

That’s correct.  I set my virtual machine to python3, and had set my actual plasma table machine to python3, but I changed it back (for no reason other than I jumped the gun a little and didn’t want to run into issue on my table).  It does require installing some python3 dependencies, but it wasn’t a big deal.  

Ive had no issues on the virtual machine.

Well, I've given up on MX Linux. I can see it is a good solution for run in place systems on preempt_rt but after a couple of installs, it has flakey wifi on my hardware and second time around I could not get it to recognise the Linuxcnc repos so it would install linuxcnc. That was really strange.

I've retreated to Mint 19.3 and Tommy's method.

Hopefully tomorrow, I will get QTplasmac working properly

I don't think its any quicker than installing mint

I don't think anyone said it was quicker to install than Mint.
With both of them being derivatives of Debian they should be a similar install time.
I have had zero issues installing MXLinux, it works great here with both run in place and package installs.

MX is snappier and more responsive in use than Mint, especialy on PC's with 4GB of RAM.
For use with QtPlasmaC, 4GB is the bare minimum and even that will cause response delays when jogging the machine on Mint with Mate, pretty sure that will be non issue on MX with the same RAM.
I can happily say that Mint is where Ubuntu was 11 years ago with 10.04, everything just works.

The main issue in the end was it did not support the built in wifi on this industrial PC.
Now the last issue I have to overcome is how install halcompile.
I saw somewhere Andy mentioned to install linuxcnc-devtools
but this fails becasue it can't find Yapps2. I have been caught with this in the past but can't remember the resolution.
Any Ideas?

Sudo apt install linuxcnc-uspace-dev
It will probably fail as it does require some more dependencies, but try first enabling the "partner" and "source code" repos, do an update then try installing dev.

Yeh, the dependency is Yapps2 and I did not get a solution for that. Any ideas?  Sorry I used the wrong name cos it was cold at work so I came home to warm up!

Serch the debian repos for it, use the Stretch or Buster versions.
Pretty sure it will need about 7 to 10 more, mostly gcc stuff.
For some reason the guide for Mint 20 has those deps, 19.3 does not!
I am getting old and senile! :)
Will try to fix that later, if at all possible...

Greg installed python-yapps by his PDF so I'll try that in the morning...

Also, "yapps2" is in the list in the pdf as well.
