Puppy / Pets



This announcement will be of interest to you if you are currently a Puppy user or anticipate using that operating system.

The most recent Puppy distributions are now based on either a Debian or a Slackware distribution.  All of the NBEMS applications have been updated to be compatible with Precise-Puppy 5.7.1, a Debian based distribution.  You can download a 5.7.1 ISO image and all of the pet files from the www.w1hkj.com web site.  It would reduce the overall site traffic if you obtained the ISO image from puppylinux.org.  Use my mirror as a last resort.

NOTE:
(1) these pets ARE NOT compatible with Puppy 4.3.x, the previously supported version of Puppy.
(2) there is no longer any need to install special shared libs (libs.pet) for this update.
(3) Puppy 4.3.x will no longer be supported.

73, Dave, W1HKJ

Fldigi not installing in Arch Linux



Hi, I run Arch on an x86_68 architecture machine and can't get fldigi to install. No problems with CQRLog. Any ideas? Perhaps I need to wait for the latest PKGBUILD to come out. The latest version in the AUR is 3.22.05-1.


Regards

Printer Recommendation



Hi guys,

I'm in the market for a new all-in-one printer and wanted to make sure my next purchase would work on Linux and windoze pc across a wifi connection in my home network. My current printer is a Lexmark and they do not support Linux so Ive not been able to print from my Linux Mint PC. Any recommendation would be much appreciated.


Dave, G8FXM

fldigi-3.22.06AF crashes on Fedora 21 64 bit

Fwd: [mdsradio] MDSR on UBUNTU?



Hi Guys,

Here is the first exciting announcement.

Sounds interesting!

Subject: [mdsradio] MDSR on UBUNTU?
To: <mdsradio-hHKSG33TihhbjbujkaE4pw@public.gmane.org>

 

Hi Everybody;

The MDSR team has managed to run the MDSR V3.0 on Raspberry PI. The DSP worked as expected, but the main issue is the graphic user interface. Since all the graphic elements that make up the interface and the fonts where substituted with Linux types. It was functional but very clumsy.
So we took a step backward and installed UBUNTU 14.04 64bit on the test computer. It took about two hours to install. We also installed the Java JRE 7 and the IDE java program platform. Getting the source code to run under this Linux based OS was a bit of a challenge, although now that it works it is quite simple. The main issue was the fact that all directory entries are relative and do not resolve to a drive. Also setting up the needed Java classes was a bit tricky, but mainly because of the differences between Linux and Windows.
Now that the MDSR source code is running on the UBUNTU computer we will be able to clean up the user interface and fonts to reflect the Linux types. Once that is completed the MDSR software should also work on the Raspberry PI besides some other Linux OSs.

Is anyone interested in testing the MDSR on UBUNTU?

All the best;

The MDSR Team

What other ham software will run on Ubuntu?



Hello everyone,

Alex Schwartz, VE7DXW has been developing hardware and software under Windows for his unidirectional (receive only) and bidirectional (receive and transmit) digital signal processing units at mdsradio-hHKSG33TihhbjbujkaE4pw@public.gmane.org

I have tried gently to get him to make the software run under Linux because Linux just works better.

As you see in the message below (actually the previous message), he has rewritten the code of the MDSR so it works on Ubuntu.

This is awesome as it means I can use fldigi and all the rest of fldigi's programs with Alex's hardware module and software control program for my HF/VHF transceiver.  It makes a software defined radio with an analogue front end and crystal filter.

Does anyone have a list of the best digi mode Linux programs including any that most do not know about?

I will copy Alex with the info.

Hi Mike and Everybody;

I should have elaborated on the UBUNTU, a Linux based windows driven OS development. This OS has been around for quite some time and it is developed as a shareware project. It is quite impressive and the interface has improved considerably since I last tried it a few years ago. It found and installed all the hardware on my computer including the sound cards.

The software can be downloaded almost for free ( they ask for a donation for  $20.) at:

http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

If someone want to try a better (less commercial) OS this would be it!

I have not done a lot of research on what other HAM software it will run, but there will be lots of choices. I found a JT-9 program that can be downloaded from the repository for free.
I will post my research and findings here in the group.

All the best;

Alex / VE7DXW

Delta 44 settings with Fldigi in Linux

I end up confused over the many setting choices in "envy24" when using 
the Delta 44 sound card.  I have things working, but suspect everything 
is not quite proper.

Linux Mint 17.1
Delta 44 (66)
Envy24

Can someone point me to info on the proper setup or else tell me what 
they should be?

Thanks,
Don AE5K
