I hope this helps someone interested in installing the LinuxCNC 2.10 and Probe Basic on MX 21.  This process installs from a .deb and is not a RIP installation.  LinuxCNC will show up in the Applications Menu of MX 21.  I'm just a beginner at linux and this took me a few days to collect all the steps necessary from various resources but it now seems to work for now.  Everything seems to change fast and keeping up a working installation process is a challenge. Installing MX 21 is easy.  Just download and burn the latest live boot image to a USB drive using Rufus (in windows) or gnome-multi-writer in Linux. Once MX 21 real time kernal is installed, follow the attached file and it should get LinuxCNC and Probe Basic installed. I updated the attached file and I think it is correct now.  Maybe someone can run thru it and check.  One thing that I had to do since posting this the first time is downgrade Numpy to 1.23.5 to get editvcp to open without errors.  Thanks

Thanks very much.  If I could make an observation...  I think you may have used a text editor to past the dependencies in the .doc file.  A simple copy-paste of the .doc (or from the forum screen) in a terminal results in missing dependencies because the lines breaks & hyphenation don't carry over cleanly.

Had to past in to geany and remove all the extra line breaks.

An easier method, at least for newbie non-Linux folks like myself, is to paste all the dependencies in one line (in geany), then past them as 'code' in the forum editor.  Them someone can grab & paste the whole thing with no confusing errors:

Thank you.
As a future reference, use only simple plain text editors for editing/copy/paste/etc, as Spumco mentioned, using anything else causes all kinds of issues.

Running through the rest of this, I'm getting a fail at:

./configure –with-realtime=uspace


edit - I think it needs two hyphens "--with..."

But still getting a fail.

./configure –with-realtime=uspace

 
./configure -with-realtime=uspace

The first minus is not a minus sign, it is a bit longer.
Edit
Probably should be two of those minuses at the start:
./configure --with-realtime=uspace

Yea, two hyphens needed, but still failing:

bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

Yeah, probably not inside the correct folder.
From a quick glance of the document, i am sure i noticed some inconsistency with moving in and out of folders, but am to tired to sift through it.
Sorry.

Thanks Tommy.

OP: I think you're missing some folder changes.  Need to drop in to dev/linuxcnc/rip/src before the ./configure... command.

EDIT
Some other issues:
$ cd
###$ . ~/linuxcnc-dev/scripts/rip-environment
$ linuxcnc

Has some folder name problems.  I think you need to run through your post start to finish and tidy up folder names and sequencing.

Only if that's where you have put it ....

If you follow the instructions on the web site to get a git clone then you will end up with the Linuxcnc source in ~/linuxcnc-dev/src
cd ~/linuxcnc-dev/src
./autogen.sh
./configure
make
sudo make setuid
Is pretty much all I ever do. Several times an hour some days...

Yes... but I was trying to follow the OP's instructions verbatim to see if there were any hiccups.  And there were.
