Ok great - that's expected Designer has not be linked to the widgets yet.
You need to make link to the widget plugin file (installed linuxcnc path shown):
/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/qtvcp/plugins/qtvcp_plugin.py

and place it in:
~/.designer/plugins/python

There is a script to do it:
/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/qtvcp/designer/install_script

Hi Chris,

I couldn't find the qtvcp_plugin.py at:
/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/

instead I found it here:
home/linuxcnc-dev/lib/python/qtvcp/plugins/qtvcp_plugin.py

and it(qtvcp_plugin.py) already has a shortcut at:
~/.designer/plugins/python

 


I don't know why it is like that, it might be because I am use RIP version

Please kindly guide me to how I can use:
/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/qtvcp/designer/install_script

as it's new to me.

Regards
Abhishek

Ok sorry I assumed you were using an installed version of linuxcnc.
With RIP linuxcnc you need to run in a terminal:
. scripts/rip-environment
to set up the paths, then to run designer, enter in the same terminal:
designer

and that should run designer with the widgets.
If it does not please post what it writes in the terminal.

Chris
