  1. Good day and thanks for the info

    using Ubuntu 18.04 and the USB SignaLink

    Very frustrating so far…..The Burr-Brown is selectable for the output but not available for the input.

    To complicate matters, the volume icon on the desktop has no option to control the input level, so wsjt is constantly clipping.

  2. tried everything and then I thought about the keyboard volume control, turned it on and up and WSJT Linux transmits just as expected. The keyed radio just needed the tone.

  3. Say you configure your setup. It remembers it next time you launch the program, right? If so, that information (configuration) must be stored somewhere. Where in Linux is that config info stored? Thanks!

  4. Hi
    I’m completely new to Linux and am having some difficulty with the USB interface.

    I can see that the USB interface has installed. When I add my id to the auto dialler and audio groups the command appears to execute correctly with no errors. However when I check group membership my id does not appear to have been added.

    When I try the CAT control I get the following error message

    “Hamlib error: IO error
    port_open: serial_open(/dev/ttyUSB0) status=-6, err=Permission denied
    iofunc.c(81):port_open return(-6)
    rig.c(795):rig_open return(-6) while opening connection to rig

    I’m guessing this is a permissions issue associated with not being in the right groups.

    Any help would be appreciated

  5. Hello. I’m having similar issues and getting the Hamlib I/O error using Manjaro Linux connecting to an IC-7300.
    I have the /ttyUSB0 selected for the serial port under “CAT Control”, but on the “PTT Method” side, the /ttyUSB0 is not shown as an available option and only shows “USB” when the CAT radio button is selected.
    I have added my user to the “dialout” group with proper access and rebooted… but to no avail yet.

    Thanks for any advice! SRF
