What's important is how you have built the wxWidgets

For me I have the following structure...

/home/sdrplay/Dev/wxWidgets-3.1.0
/home/sdrplay/Dev/wxWidgets-staticlib

so you need to be careful when building wxWidgets that the correct path for the output is specified. Then make sure that same path is used in the CubicSDR build.

What's your wxWidgets cmake command look like?

wxWidgets doesn't use cmake. The make I used was the two line variety. From cli history it went:

tar -xvjf wxWidgets-3.1.0.tar.bz2
cd wxWidgets-3.1.0/
./autogen.sh
./configure --with-opengl --disable-shared --enable-monolithic --with-libjpeg --with-libtiff --with-libpng --with-zlib --disable-sdltest --enable-unicode --enable-display --enable-propgrid --disable-webkit --disable-webview --disable-webviewwebkit --prefix=`echo ~/SDR-Dev/wxWidgets-staticlib` CXXFLAGS="-std=c++0x"
make -j4
make install

The previous doc. I followed had 'make j4 && make install' both work, of course.

Thanks though. You and others obviously have it working, so it must be something wrong on my end. I'll have another look when I get some time.

Got my RSP2 yesterday. Tried it briefly on my Windows PC with both SDRUno and HDSDR. No problems and SDRUno looks and feels wonderful, albeit with rather small text on 1440p. Couldn't get either to work with RDP as Windows 7 disables system audio when that protocol is used for connections...

Got further with CubicSDR on Linux. Apparently cmake can't stand hyphens on the command line in filenames. So my 'SDR-Dev' folder broke it. Yup. I was shocked too, especially when I realised it applies to the darn 'wxWidgets-staticlib' part of the instructions as well. Means the original "Build static wxWidgets" instructions at https://github.com/cjcliffe/CubicSDR/wiki/Build-Linux are wrong too.

So the wxWidgets config line I used was:

Code: Select all

./configure --with-opengl --disable-shared --enable-monolithic --with-libjpeg --with-libtiff --with-libpng --with-zlib --disable-sdltest --enable-unicode --enable-display --enable-propgrid --disable-webkit --disable-webview --disable-webviewwebkit --prefix=`echo ~/SDR_Dev/wxWidgets_staticlib` CXXFLAGS="-std=c++0x"
CubicSDR build's 'cmake' modified line then works but then it fails at the 'make' like:

Code: Select all

It is now and building :) 45%...

Many thanks.

Builds, installs and runs, but no time to test 'till later...

Any possibilty there are simple instructions on how to load uno? I'm using Linux Ubuntu 18.04 and I struggle my way through not knowing much about anything but I have gotten a few things working like FT8 in the past. Well, now that I've spent a bunch of money on this SDRPlay, I'm really invested in getting it to work. But, I don't know what a "build" is. I don't even know what a WX widget is. All I know is I hate Windows. I have a problem remembering what I've read because of ADHD issues so long drawn out lists of information just stump me. I'm sorry if this is too much of a request. It took me hours to write this. I would really love to get this working.

Hello Winston,
I'm sorry, but SDRuno does not run under Linux. It is currently Windows only. For Linux, you will need to look at Cubic SDR or GQRX. Unfortunately, with Linux, very few applications can be simply installed and run like they can under Windows. It is often necessary to compile (build) the applications from source code along with the various dependencies which can be time consuming and tricky.

Sincerely

Thank you very much.
I'll try Cubic.

Similarly constantly do I use only Linux, I want to know SDRUNO is developed under Linux, is it possible to wait it? I have SDRPLAY RSP1A and want to purchase other SDRPLAY, but possibilities of Gqrx and Cubic are little. Thank you!!!
