Thanks ggallant571,
I will start with this again

EDIT I have downloaded and opened up this file and have taken a screenshot. I think I am missing parts at the bottom of the page. I will connect up a monitor to this laptop in the morning and see if I can get the whole page.
It looks very simple and if it does what I want I will be well pleased. Thanks again for letting me try this (again)

My lowest resolution screen is 1440x900 so it is entirely possible that the lower area is lost. What size do you have?

I have connected a 17" monitor to my laptop and it shows me the whole page.
I can set the computer/monitor up when I want to use the laser engraver.
Thanks for this, I will have a look at this programme later.

Hi ggallant571,
I have picked up a Samsung Notebook that seems to run T2 Laser without any problem so I won't push your programme any further on my Linux setup.
I have tried VirtualBox, VMware, KVM, Wine, PlayonLinux, you name it I have tried it most of them more trouble than their worth at least your little programme is very simple and easily understood.
I will probably order T2 over the weekend after I have had a play with it first, it does seem to work well so far.
I may also keep your programme to use for coasters. Someone asked this week about cutting/engraving slate so I will look into that. Thanks again for all your help.

take care
Don W

install wine Development branch
https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu

so the newer version of wine requires additional dependencies. I found this worked instead of the winehq site
https://www.linuxuprising.com/2019/09/how-to-install-wine-staging-development.html

Then i needed to do a 'sudo apt-get install cabextract', then i could install dotnet45 and t2.
Thanks for you tutorial
