SDRuno on WINE

Postby Joefiday49 » Sat Mar 23, 2019 9:06 pm

I think it must be a wineo instead of just wine... About to drive me to drink anyway!. I see all the good results here and I can't seem to get it to even do anything but draw a screen, albeit it's a purdy screen...

I have Wine 3.0.4 installed on Ubuntu 18.04 and am trying to install and run the latest software version from SDRplay: (I gave up after several tries at running the native linux software and went this route)

SDRuno – v1.22 (13th Jan 2018)

(ExtIO) Includes hardware driver
SDRuno – v1.3 (14th Mar 2019)

(All RSPs – single tuner only) Includes hardware driver
Spectrum Analyser – v1.0a (20th Mar 2019)

(All RSPs – single tuner only) Includes hardware driver
HDSDR – v2.76a (13th Jul 2018)

(RSP1/RSP1A/RSP2) Includes hw driver/API/EXTIO plugin
ExtIO Plugins – v1.2 (13th Jul 2018)

(RSP1/RSP1A/RSP2) Includes hardware driver/API

I have installed 'em all more than once with no luck. Upon install I get 5 error messages during the install. They are:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/15-ngyfeXMJFlnEQamVYLNhfbIBslN01n/view?usp=sharing

When I try to start it I get this error:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DHJIoR7sifa6wyMoh2WKZ6nHy4qkycZS/view?usp=sharing

But by running lsusb I can see the receiver is attached...

Question is should I just give up and sell this thing on ebay and put it toward a decent HF receiver or is there something simple that I'm not seeing?

I am using SDRUno with Ubuntu 18.04 NP. Try using Wine 4.0. The instructions in the post by StandingWave viewtopic.php?f=11&t=4187 really work but it is based on Wine 4.0. To get 4.0 follow the instructions at https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu and install winehq-stable.

Well that didn't work... Went to the website, installed the recommended repository and did the installation. the command:
wine --version

Still reports 3.0.4...

Wine 4.2 works well too, needs Microsoft fonts installed.

Well I did get Wine 4.0 installed by deleting everything above C:\ drive and starting from scratch... Now I guess something else is messed up as the program will install, but still won't run... Simply says it cannot find the SDRplay... I'm wondering if maybe I got a defective unit?... Guess that's possible. Have tried several different USB ports, and can see it when I issue the lsusb command in terminal... Go figure...

If anyone has any further suggestions I would appreciate hearing from you but I'll be out of pocket for the next week or so...

Did you get rsp_tcp running ok? SDRUno won't work without it running first.

You should see something like this in the terminal where you start rsp_tcp before starting SDRUno:

Code: Select all

rsp_tcp -E -a 127.0.0.1
rsp_tcp version 1.0

libmirsdrapi-rsp version 2.13 found
detected RSP model 'RSP 2' (hw ver 2)
listening...



You also need to start the SDRuno.EXTIO.exe version as per SatandingWave's instructions.

Well none of that works... When I run start rsp_tcp terminal reports command start not found... When I run rsp_tcp by itself I get rsp_tcp: command not found

Something obviously is not installed correctly...

Joe, the problem with running SDRuno in WINE, is that WINE does not support USB ports. This means that SDRuno running on WINE cannot “see” any USB devices and therefore does not detect the RSP radio. The workaround is to use the RSP_TCP server instead. For this to work, you will need to download and compile the Linux version of the RSP_TCP server. Being a native Linux program, this will correctly interface with the RSP on Linux and SDRuno running in WINE will be able to communicate with it to control and receive data from the RSP. If you haven’t already done so, you will probably need to install the build-essentials package (sudo apt install build-essentials) which provides the compile tools required. The build and install instructions can be found in the file README.md in the RSP_TCP server download.

Once you have rsp_tcp compiled and installed on Linux, you will then be able to run the command:

Code: Select all

rsp_tcp -E -a 127.0.0.1

Note, no ‘start’ required.

Regarding the ExtIO DLL, you will need the EXTIO PLUGIN TCP V1.0 (15th Feb 2019) package. The unpacked DLL will need to be placed in the WINE equivalent of the user “Documents” folder. The similarly named EXTIO PLUGINS - V1.2 package serves a different purpose and is used to interface other third party programs such as HDSDR with the RSP.
