As the title says, I've built my .ui the way I want it, and tested it on my development machine.  Works great in sim!  How do I move it to the real machine?  Do I just move the .ui?  Where do I put it?

Thank you,

The .ui file is related to the handler.py file. You'd better check the official doc linuxcnc.org/docs/stable/html/gui/qtvcp.html  ,
in real enviroment ,you need also adjust your hal and ini file to satisfy the specific machine detail.

now you want to build a deb as follows, In a terminal enter the the below commands one line at a time, this will build a deb that you can install on your machine.
sudo apt install git python3-poetry pybuild-plugin-pyproject debhelper dh-python devscripts libqt5multimedia5-plugins --no-install-recommends --no-install-suggests
cd qtpyvcp
dch --create --distribution unstable --package qtpyvcp --newversion 0.1-2 Experimental Release version.
dpkg-buildpackage -b -uc


Now you will install it on the machine pc with the following line:
sudo dpkg -i python3-qtpyvcp-0.1-2.deb

Thanks Lcvette, I actually had already hacked my way around by searching and replacing the original .ui with the modified .ui and now I have a working (albiet not the prettiest) vertical Probe Basic. I will try the correct way to do it on a dev machine.

here is the documents page on how to build a deb, note near the top is the dependencies line.  if you already have the development version installed such as you do than you can skip the resources clone lines.
