Debian/Ubuntu WSPR in WSJT-X Install instructions

Following my blog post ( Post 5566 ), installation is as follows:

-------------------------------------------------
GENERAL INFORMATION
-------------------------------------------------

  • WSJT-X v2.0.0 is now released.
  • Distributions: Ubuntu 16.04, 18.04 (Trusty 14.04 not longer available)
  • Supported ARCH: i386, amd64, armhf, arm64, ppc64el
  • Adds new FT8 Mode.

-------------------------------------------------
UBUNTU INSTALLATION
-------------------------------------------------

  • All install actions are performed in a terminal
  • sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ki7mt/wsjtx
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install wsjtx
  • That should do it; search your Applications Menu's for WSJT-X

-------------------------------------------------
DEBIAN INSTALLATION
-------------------------------------------------
Reports of late, particularly with Raspbian, indicate this method may not be appropriate. Launchpad is designed for Ubuntu based distributions. As such, adding PPA's to Debian based distributions may result in unexpected results.

  • All install actions are performed in a terminal
  • sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 862549F9
  • sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
  • Add the following to the end of sources.list

For Debian Buster friends
# -----
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ki7mt/wsjtx/ubuntu bionic main
# -----

For Debian Stretch and friends
# -----
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ki7mt/wsjtx/ubuntu xenial main
# -----

  • Ctrl+X to save and exit
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install wsjtx
  • That should do it; search your Applications Menu's WSJT-X

-------------------------------------------------
PACKAGE UPDATE NOTES
-------------------------------------------------

  • All updates are through the normal package manager process: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade process
  • The PPA now supports iMac G4/G5 (ppc64el)
  • The control file now includes libqt5multimedia5 and libqt5multimedia5-plugins
