I seem to have gotten closer. QTPYVCP seems to be installed properly now. i can run editvcp probe_basic and QT designer actually launches. Though I get an error:

{
The enumeration-type property horizontalScrollBarPolicy could not be read.
}

any insight?

Still not getting probe_basic to launch from linuxcnc launcher. I can almost taste it

I suspect you have a mixed installation of python 2.7 and python 3.....

Linuxcnc 2.8.2 iso is python 2.7 (and GTK2)

If you installed the master branch of qtpyvcp that will be a python3 install

Then if you install the master branch of probe basic ..... that is python2.7.....

I am trialing a Debian Bullseye (native python 3) + linuxCNC master install + qtpyvcp + probe basic (python3 branch) + probe basic conversational gcode (python 3) install.

I'm happy to walk you through it if you want (most of it is actually on the qtpyvcp installation instructions..... what they don't tell you is the probe basic master branch is actually python 2.7! and you need to install the python 3 branch using th -b python3 switch for git.

Wow that sounds actually reasonable. qtpyvcp has only worked installing via python3 for me… Didn’t realize they didn’t work together too well…

I would love to give a full native python3 install a try. does it have to be on debian 11? Not sure if there’s a DM function in the forum but you could post the commands and steps in the comments here?

this should work for a walk through.....

NOTE: some of the items (such as the network setup and isolcpus are for my setup and more than likley won't work for you but the content should be there for you to have a look through).

Is there supposed to be a link involved?

Might not show up since i’m on mobile, or maybe it’s not included?

I will have a look into your current problem, I'd rather you hadn't posted in that thread and just kept it here with your original problem

If you have a clean install of Debian 11 - Bullseye,
the QTPYVCP guys have this script that builds linuxcnc and installs QTPYVCP and probe basic. I don't think its been pushed to their master yet, but can grab it from Joco here
github.com/joco-nz/lcnc-bullseye-installer

The thing I like about Bullseye is it does not have Python 2 so everything is Python 3 which avoids the version conflict issues.

that script is very interesting

need to install zenity (sudo apt install zenity) to get it to fully run in my case.

I will have a go at another clean bullseye install....... seems I've now killed probebasic lathe ..... I was fiddling with the mill and that I "broke"

{I'm learning..... breaking stuff is part of the learning process.... }

I have been trying to install probe basic today using the both the quick start and developer install.  I have not been able to successfully do so.  I have installed it several times in the past successfully.  Two things I noticed was that the link to download  the installer (see below), and that a probe basic installer fix was committed 2 hours ago on github.  Does anyone think that this could be associated with my potential issues installing?  If not I can post the specific issues that I am having.
