Ubuntu Focal Fossa 20.04 LTS and libraries



I see the snap available in 20.04 LTS is an old 5.1.0. When I run it it does not detect my LimeSDR Mini, so I move on.

I have grabbed the release version 4.14.5-1 and due to the nuances of 20.04 LTS I have to install using dpkg -i, this works and it detects my lime mini and functions with the decoders that make it through the install. But does grumble about the following libraries, which I guess is down to the 20.04 package list (libavcodec58 is the version in 20.04, etc):

sudo dpkg -i sdrangel_4.14.5-1_amd64.deb

I am happy to use the part broken build as I am not currently using DATV, DMR, etc.

I thought you might like the info above to help with any upcoming releases, hopefully I am not making a mistake and it is only package dependencies.

Kind regards
