Glenn,
   I did as instructed CTRL-ALT-F1 and it goes to terminal the CTRL-ALT-F took me right back to the desktop with a centered pi login screen.

Re: Zoom in/out issue on WSJT-X

Hiroki Kato <hiroki@...>
 

I solved my problem re zoom in/out and stuck-in-window-size. This may be an elementary thing for those who are familiar with how Raspberry Pi works. But just in case it may help some other people with the same issue, here is what I did. Unbeknownst to me, settings to control the display size had changed, and I re-input in the values as shown in this picture. (Sorry it’s not very clear):










I am back in business. Thank you to hose who offered help/suggestion.

1024x600 is going to be pretty rough with WSJTX.  Not sure what the minimum usable size would be.  If required you should be able to hold down your Left Alt Key and then click in the desired window to move it. This allows you to move parts of the window off of the visible desktop to get at a "hidden" OK button etc.


I have a non RigPi pi with the a touch screen where I was having the same issues.  I ended up running a VNC session at a higher resolution and then viewing that from the touch screen and then i had scroll bars to navigate. Was a comprise but worked OK.

I use both monitor/keyboard plugged into the RigPi and VNC on iPad/iPhone. I have the same issue either way.

I don’t know if this is a RigPi issue but I have a problem when running WSJT-X on MFJ-1234. The WSJT-X display is stuck in a zoomed-in state and I cannot move the display to see control buttons. I can move the display sideways and up or down, but not sufficiently enough to use  controls. How can I zoom out to see the whole page of display?  Other RigPi functions are working fine; only the WSJT-X program has this issue. The whole MFJ-1234 system, including WSJT-X, was working just fine until recently.

Re: Updating WSJT-X

The user you should be using is pi unless you have done some modifications to the accounts on the rigpi.

Try a CTRL-ALT-F1 at the login screen. Does that get you to a terminal log in?
If so try logging in as user pi and password 7388 (or something else if you changed it.)
CTRL-ALT-F7 should switch back to the gui login

Note on the rigpi there is the RSS user pass that you use in a web browser or by clicking the RigPi shortcut on the RigPi desktop.
There is the user pi /password that is used to login to the desktop or an ssh app such as putty.
There is also a VNC password.
These can all be different and are unrelated but RigPi comes with then all set to 7388.

Radio's mic audio question

Barry VA6DX
 

When audio goes through the RigPi rather than the radio's normal mic, do the radio's mic settings (like mic EQ settings) still take effect? More particular the radios that are connected to the RigPi via USB. I'm trying to get more 'highs' and more 'punch' in my TX audio but my audio doesn't seem to be effected. On my FT-991A, I've bumped up the highs (in the EQ) as high as they go and backed off the 'lows' as much as possible and my audio still has way too much base in it. Not sure what else I can try to give the TX audio more punch (highs).

Re: Asking guidance how to augment RigPi control screen

Dave Shadwell
 

Howard,
VNC Viewer running on Android phone (Galaxy S9+) replicates RigPi large screen view, tabs, everything as if I'm at the radio and allows me to operate everything but no keyboard (yet). Need to scroll around a lot of real estate to operate. Perhaps Im not interacting with PNC Viewer properly. I'll try your suggestions, perhaps copy and paste duplicate controls and continue the adventure. Love it!
Thank you

Hi Dave,

RigPi uses Twitter Bootstrap to make responsive screens.  The GUI elements that appear on a screen depend on the size of the screen.  For phones the S-meter converts to a bar graph and the status labels are dropped.  RigPi uses a graphics tool called Perfect Widgets to create the GUI components.  By using Perfect Widgets you can make the GUI (PTT, +/-, Tuning knob) do anything you like.

The ultimate goal is to bypass the need for Perfect Widgets since it produces proprietary components.

Re: Configuration for IC-7100 with WSJT-X using a RigPi

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

The important thing is that two programs can't connect to a radio through the radio's USB port.  Hamlib allows you to use a special radio, NET rigctl, to share radios.  If RigPi is controlling the radio, you can use the NET Rigctl option in WSJT-X to control the same radio.  The advantage in controlling form RigPi is that WSJT-X logging can then be passed through to RigPi's log.

Re: how to allow different accounts to use he same radio.

Howard Nurse, W6HN
 

Assigning ports in R Port depends on which radios you want to share.  To control a radio connected in account 1, you use 4532 in account 2.  If you have a radio being controlled in account 2 and account 3 wants to share it, account 3 will use 4534 in R Port.

Is it possible to talk on D-star via IC-7100 and RigPi?

Hi,

Is it possible to use RigPi to talk on D-star with the Icom IC-7100?  

73's,

Re: how to allow different accounts to use he same radio.

KT7AZ
 

Every added account needs to increment the number by 2.  Example, R port 4532 then next would be 4534 and next would be 4536, on and on for each account.  

also note, only one user, one account, can use the CW.


Re: Configuration for IC-7100 with WSJT-X using a RigPi

Hi Carl,

You must disconnect the radio from the RIGPI application for getting access to the USB. Also need to disconnect the mumble server to get access to the audio sound card.

I have selected WSJTX from the Hamradio tab.  After WSJT loads, two error messages appear:
  Rig Control Error - Hamlib:  Communication bus error while getting current frequency
  Error in Sound Output
In Settings>Radio I have selected Icom IC-7100 ; CAT Control>Serial Port:  /dev/ttyUSB1, Baud Rate: 38400

The goal is to use WSJT while at home using an IC-7100 and RigPi without having to use a separate laptop or another Raspberry Pi.

Do you have a configuration for this gear that works for you?

Re: Which rig would you recommend?

Mark Schroeder, W7KHZ
 

Thanks Perry. Was not sure if someone had found one that would adapt easily that would support a multi-channel need that was not also bundled with HF. Was looking to see if there was something I could swap out my 857 with that would provide just the VHF and UHF remote needs(like a Kenwood V71).

Most mobile FM rigs do not have CAT control. You have to go to multi-mode HF/VHF/UHF rigs to get CAT control. The Icom IC-7100 comes to mind as one example.

Of course, any mobile FM rig with a data input can be used in fixed channel/frequency operation but that’s kind of a waste of a RigPi.

What VHF/UHF mobile rig would anybody recommend for a good interface to the RigPi?

I am looking for something that I can use a basic interface cable for audio and a data link that I can use to remotely control/select pre-programmed channels on the rig?

I enjoy using the FT857 for now, but curious if another radio that is just a VHF/UHF mobile type may work just as well and interface easily. Any recommendations?

Asking guidance how to augment RigPi control screen

Dave Shadwell
 

When operating from the Android phone screen the view would benefit from this addition. I would like to add three control buttons PTT, +, - added to RigPi screen blank space between frequency and S meter.
Just asking for an approach to get me started. 
So far managed to work through everything necessary to remote operate the IC-7300 both inside the network and from ATT wireless external utilizing Gotmumble, Pumble and VNC.
It's a fun, challenging project, very rewarding seeing it work. I welcome a program challenge if necessary, just dont know where to start.

Re: FT-991A muting on SSB but good on FM #ft-991a

Barry VA6DX
 

Yes and I have it working properly (most times). I do get SSB but after a while, it mutes. I can listen and work SSB for a few hours (through the RigPi). I can go back to VHF FM and scan that band and go back to SSB on HF/VHF but when I scan and listen to FM after a few more hours, SSB is then muted (at the radio and through the RigPi). FM continues to work but the only way I can get SSB to work again is to reboot the radio.
