WSJT on the RPI/Lapdock under Raspian revisited

While comissioning the Atrix Lapdock I needed to install WSJT. I had similar issues with the version currently at the trunk of the svn not installing properly, There were no clues on the SVN as to what the latest stable release was so I found out what version I had previously used (2589)and installed that as follows:-

 svn co svn:// -r2589

 cd ../trunk

./configure --with-portaudio-include-dir=/usr/include --with-portaudio-lib-dir=/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf

it did a whole load of things starting at "Compiling wsjt" and ended with "Installing into: /usr/local"

still in trunk:-:

make clean


after it finishes make sure you have permissions to execute  ../trunk/

sudo chmod 777

Even though the serial port isnt used, WSJT still tries to talk to it so make sure /dev/ttyAMA0 permissions are set appropriately
to launch WSJT:-

  1. WSJT now uses python3 and f2py3.
    WSJT compiles and runs on Fedora 20 x86_64. Edit configure, find "python" change to "set dummy python3; ac_word=$2" later f2py -> f2py3
    ./configure --with-portaudio-include-dir=/usr/include --with-portaudio-lib-dir=/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf
    Now need PIL for python3
