dump1090_1.3 on linux

I am running Ubuntu 18.04 and SDRPlay RSP2. I am attempting to run dump1090_1.3 from the terminal. When I enter ./dump1090, I get the following message:

./dump1090: error while loading shared libraries: libmirsdrapi-rsp.so.2.11: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I have API driver version 2.13 installed and I believe dump1090 is looking for version 2.11. I can't find version 2.11 to try. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

You have two options:

  1. Create a symbolic link under '/usr/local/lib' where libmirsdrapi-rsp.so.2.11 points to libmirsdrapi-rsp.so.2.13 (and then run 'ldconfig'):

    Code: Select all

    $ cd /usr/local/lib
    $ ln -s libmirsdrapi-rsp.so.2.13 libmirsdrapi-rsp.so.2.11
    $ ldconfig

  2. Open a support ticket with SDRplay and they can provide you access to the SDRplay Linux API version 2.11 (since only the latest version is available for direct download on their website)
