The instructions in the git repo work for me on ubuntu 20
========== For Ubuntu
“sudo apt-get install libqt5multimedia5-plugins qtmultimedia5-dev qttools5-dev qttools5-dev-tools libqt5opengl5-dev qtbase5-dev libusb-1.0 librtlsdr-dev”
“mkdir out && cd out && cmake ../ && make”
“librtlsdr-dev” is in the “universe” repo. (utopic 14.10 amd64.)
note: https://github.com/hexameron/rtl-sdrangelove and https://github.com/f4exb/sdrangel are two children applications to sdrangelove. I found it was good to be aware of the parent application build instructions first. And note, my initial comment on this was taking the sdrangelove build comments as “already read”.
I have not seen good tutorials for it, but on latest Mint (Rosa) at this time of posting, got it installed and working with my UHD device. I am sure it will work with my rtl. It is lacking on plugins, but the narrow band fm plugin accepts alterations so I could get fm radio working okay.
Difficulties: you have to install the full QT package from the company that provides that. Default install is not good enough. I installed 5.0.2 and the latest, 5.5. That company drops a “.run” file, which runs well when double click on it.
Only other build difficulty was my system lacking opengl dev. Like any build, took a few seconds to copy and paste a portion of the error message and get the name of that package.
Then, it did the full build and install quite well, where I only had to supply that cmake value they suggest supplying once.
It is pretty as the picture shows, and has some interesting display functionality. Not sure if I will dig really deep into it or not, yet, but good to have ‘yet another’ good SDR working on linux.
Yes, would love to use Sdrangelove but not really sure on how to install on Ubuntu and how to use it?
any good tutorial for this resource?
