R820T on Ubuntu

Post by rtltester » Wed Dec 18, 2013 1:23 am

I've been driving myself crazy trying the same things over and over the past few weeks trying to get this stupid things working. I've tried different packages and i'm currently trying again with SDR# on Ubuntu. I was able to get the project to build in mono but I have no way of knowing that the device is even working except that the blue light is lit when I plug it into the USB port. I'm an amateur with linux so i'm not even sure where else to look now.

If you're having trouble i'd suggest you start of with one of the precompiled images that include RTL-SDR support. Look into Kali Linux, or one of the LiveDVD images, like the one that was posted on the blog a few days ago.
