hi Robin,thank you for the reply.
some background, i tried everyday for a week to install FlDigi on a RaspberryPi 3B+ with fresh Buster 10 OS image.
i attempted several FlDigi versions including 4.1.12, 4.1.15, 4.1.16 all of which kept failing during the 'make install'
the failure point, was at what i think is possibly called a module install process.
anyway, it was always at the exact same point on all versions. i do not remember its name but was something like
dialogconfig or maybe configdialog.
on sunday i turned to firstname.lastname@example.org
Dave - W3DJS offered a script file to install FlDigi which i used and was successful in running the program as well.
i have some limited knowledge of linux and programming but not familiar with Pulse Audio or the other programs
that this script installs:
sudo apt -y install build-essential libfltk1.3-dev libsamplerate0-dev portaudio19-dev libsndfile1-dev libxft-dev libxinerama-dev libxcursor-dev libusb-1.0.0-dev lib
after the script installed Fldigi 4.1.16, i attempted to setup the soundcard settings in the Configure menu > Devices
using PulseAudio as the setup instructions mention PulseAudio is the system for FlDigi.
the rest of what occurred, i have provided in previous posts.
note: i did add user pi to the 'dialout' group and that seem to go ok but perhaps it did not.
under the raspberry menu item "Sound & Video" > "Pulse Audio Volume Control" & "VLC Media Player" are listed.
i got the hostname from running sudo raspi-config > System Options > Hostname which is the value i entered in the
'Server string' text box in FlDigi > Configure Devices > PulseAudio.
i have not completed any additional installs or setups beyond what the provided script has done.
perhaps there are additional downloads that need to be done but i am not aware of them.
thank you again for your feedback.
do you have some suggestions as to what i can / should do now.
