Win 10 : QSpectrumanalyzer starts but after touchin Start-Bottom I´m getting a failure messeage with closing QSp....
Ubuntu: I don´t get success to install QSp... correctly... I don´t find a running executable file

Sorry, I´m brand new with linus / ubuntu 14.04... Succesfull was the installing of GQRX and RTL_433, but not the QSp...

Anybody there who can help me?????
Thanks a lot in advance!!!

Cheers

Norbert

Did you follow the Windows installation instructions from here https://github.com/xmikos/qspectrumanalyzer?

It seems that you do need to install the SoapySDR libraries first. If you download the Pothos SDR installer which is linked in the instructions it should automatically install SoapySDR for you.

What's the exact error message that you're getting?

You could also try asking directly on the QSpectrumAnalyzer GitHub issues forum https://github.com/xmikos/qspectrumanalyzer/issues. Maybe someone else experience the same issues that you're having too, or maybe the dev can help.
