You have a line in your .bashrc file export PYQTDESIGNERPATH='/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/qtvcp/plugins/'.
If there is, copy paste into the terminal and press enter. Updating Linuxcnc does not affect widgets.

I do have that line in my .bashrc file. Well, I actually have:
export PYQTDESIGNERPATH=/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/qtvcp/plugins/

If I echo $PYQTDESIGNERPATH it displays the path.

I did find that I had started designer with "sudo designer -qt=5" and when doing so it doesn't display the LinuxCNC widgets but if I use "designer -qt=5" it does. Just have to remember not to use sudo to start it.

I was starting to pay around with making minor changes like changing "HOME SWITCHES" to say "LIMIT SWITCHES" since that what I actually connected them to. After a LinuxCNC update the screen returns to the original design. Not a big deal just exploring and learning.

Thank You
John

I think QtPyVCP and QtVCP are different stuff.
To start QtPyVCP i just type:
$ editvcp

To start QtVCP I type:
$ designer -qt=5

The first time i used QtPyVCP following the tutorial from www.qtpyvcp.com i dont had the widgets too, i closed and reopened Qt Designer to show up the widgets.

If you wanna use QtPyVCP JohnnyCNC i think you are open the wrong stuff
QtPyVCP widgets here i see all the same using Qt green logo
QtVCP the widgets here all are different and i have more options
