I am using Linux Xubuntu, 16.04. I’d like to use GQRX software, but elected to go with the flow and use CubicSDR, which is documented and sanctioned by SDRplay at https://www.sdrplay.com/docs/SDRplay_no ... s_Flow.pdf.
The driver install was non-eventful.
However, the very first step (in section 3 of the documentation) suggests I install it in home/Dev. There isn’t any ‘Dev’ folder in the home directory, so I installed it in the system folder called ‘dev’. According to the notes in the doc file, the actual installation folder isn’t critical anyway.
I have never built any software from its source, but the supoport document gave all the directions, so I tried.
The sdrplay document has formatting problems which prevent proper copy and pasting of the commands needed. I thought I fixed the errors in the document, but clearly I missed something. In the very last step (section 6.3 of the support document) I get an error.
Code: Select all
cmake ../ - DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release \ - DwxWidgets_CONFIG_EXECUTABLE=~/Dev/wxWidgets - staticlib/bin/wx - config
Yes, the above single line is a paste directly from the support document.
Below section 6.3, there is a note stating that the ‘\’ symbol is a continuation of the same line. I tried to paste that message into this post, but it fails, presumably due to more formatting errors in the document. The only way I can copy it into this message is to take a screenshot of the message, see attached.
I believed the line in question should have been:
Code: Select all
cmake ../ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release-DwxWidgets_CONFIG_EXECUTABLE=~/Dev/wxWidgets -staticlib/bin/wx -config
I have no idea what I should enter into the terminal to finish up the build.
Hopefully someone can suggest a remedy-I’m in above my head as I don’t have experience building software from it’s source code.
