QtPyVCP designer plugin fails

23 Sep 2022 16:50 #252627 by charleyann
I have my new development machine installed and running Debian bookworm.
Linuxcnc was installed using apt install and is running without issues.
I also installed QtPyVCP and Probe Basic.

When I run the Qt Designer or edit probe basic the libpyqt5.so plugin fails to load. It's looking for libpython3.9.so.1.0 which is not installed.
Instead, libpython3.10.so.1.0 is installed in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

I tried setting up a symlink to libpython3.9.so.1.0. That got rid of the load error but the widgets still won't load and I can't get at any rules.
How do I point the plugin to libpython3.10.so.1.0???

I could only manage to use python 3.10 by building linuxcnc from sources, www.linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/code/building-linuxcnc.html
using run in place (RIP) but debs should work also

I'm installing a debian 12 virtual machine and see
