Stupid again. Next I tried this
iface enp2s0 inet static
2: enp2s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast
state UP group default qlen 1000
link/ether 00:1f:c6:a1:94:c0 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
inet 192.168.1.111/24 brd 192.168.1.255 scope global enp2s0
valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
Sorry for my stupidity and thanks for the persistent help.
