Offline button resets after entering QSO

Hello everyone,

I'm using cqrlog to enter my QSOs from a paper log.
As I am not using the software while having the QSO I always use the "Offline" mode for entering date and time.

Since the newest version the checkbox always resets after entering a new QSO, in the previous version the checkbox stayed checked.

This makes the use of the program more difficult as one always has to re-tick the checkbox before entering a new QSO.

Further Information:
Cqrlog Ver:2.5.2 (001) Date:2021-02-12

uname -a: Linux 5.15.0-2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.15.5-2 (2021-12-18) x86_64 GNU/Linux

lsb_release -a:
Distributor ID: Debian
Description: Debian GNU/Linux bookworm/sid
Release: testing
Codename: bookworm

I hope this information helps / is useful.


Known problem...

with the released 2.5.2.

For a workaround: after entering at least one QSO, check the box again, then go to the QSO list (Ctrl+o) Select a QSO and hit Edit QSO. After saving it again (no changes needed), the Offline box should stay checked.

You should update your cqrlog.
Unfortunately it means compile from source. At least following messages have instructions how to compile cqrlog from source:
Raspberry PI 4 and cqrlog
New Ubuntu and latest cqrlog
Mint 20 Cinnamon and new cqrlog

Other solution is to upudate using my ready compiled files and install script found from:

Thank you very much,
Compiling from source worked instantly.
