LOTW signing adif file not working after upgrade to Kubuntu 20.04

I have searched this forum to see if anyone else has had this problem.

Last week I upgraded from Kubuntu 18.04 to Kubuntu 20.04. This was an UPGRADE, not a clean install. Now I cannot sign an adif file to upload to LOTW. When I attempt to do so, I get the following error message:

Starting export to adif ...
Export to the adif file completed.
File:
/home/kx4fz/.config/cqrlog/lotw/2020-10-12_10-39-20.adi
Signing adif file ...
/usr/bin/tqsl: error while loading shared libraries: libwx_gtk2u_core-3.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Kubuntu 20.04 does not have libwx_gtk2 libraries in the repository, it has libwxgtk3.0-gtk3-0v5. The Kubuntu 20.04 Release Notes say that
"All KDE4 and Qt4 libraries and applications have been removed from the 20.04 archive, and are therefore not supported".

I have verified that the TQSL app (v. 2.5.5) is working. I used it to sign and upload the adif file that cqrlog created.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Hi Terry!

It seems that upgrading has removed gtk2 and replaced it with gtk3. Either completely or partially.

The release notes how ever talk about QT4 and KDE4, so could it be possible still install wx_gtk2 again ?
It is either called gtk2 or wx_gtk2.
Try to install it and see if that helps.

Stepping to GTK3 is going to cause problems for cqrlog as Lazarus/FPC, that is the programming tool, has still broken support for GTK3 and all cqrlog packages are now compiled with GTK2 support.

Cqrlog can be compiled for QT5 and it works 99,9%, At the moment only known fault with QT5 is Grayline map's connection to rbn.
Running with QT5 needs one more package libQT5pas install. QT5 will be the future for cqrlog but at the moment official cqrlog can only be found as self compiled for QT5

Hello Saku,

Hello Saku,

Thank you for your reply. I believe that the upgrade has replaced gtk2. I cannot find the necessary gtk2 library file in the Synaptic Package Manager.

I decided to try the cqr5.zip (the QT5 version), as I do not use the grayline map. I followed your instructions closely (including making backups) but I am getting database access violation errors.

Here is the debug trace:

Hi Terry!

I think this is because cqrlog is compiled with Fedora32. There has been indications of this also before.

It would be best if you compile your own QT5 version. I have just added a message telling how I did it with Mint 20
https://www.cqrlog.com/node/2998
Try to follow that. It should not be too difficult and you have now backups done.

Hi Saku,

I am sorry, I got busy for a couple days and did not get back to this forum.

You were correct about recompiling my QT5 version with Kubuntu. The database access violation problem is fixed.

However, the original problem ( see my original post ) still exists.

I checked the date of my /usr/bin/cqrlog file and it is correct ( the date I re-compiled ). Also, I tried to connect to the RBN server and could not connect, so I am using the QT5 libraries.

Any ideas on what I should try next?

Saku,

I was examining the source code to see if I could find anything that referenced the gtk2 libraries and I found this in the cqrlog.lpi

Should any of these lines be change to use the QT5 libraries??

HI Terry!

Open Lazarus IDE (from start menu or console command: lazarus-ide) and with "Open project" navigate to src directory of the source and select from there cqrlog.lpi
Once it is open select Project/Project Options ( or Ctrl+Shift+F11).
From there select Additions and Overrides.
From top of right side select Set "LCLWidgetType"
Select Value "qt5" from the list. Targets should now show only IDE Macro LCLWidgetType = qt5 selected
Close from OK button
Select View/Messages (if not already shown)
Select Run/Clean up and Build
Press button Clean up and Build
Press Skip errors if you get error popup
Once compile finishes (Messages show a green line) you will find file (with fresh date and time) "cqrlog" from folder src
copy that to /usr/bin
sudo cp src/cqrlog /usr/bin

That way you can be sure everything is selected for qt5

Hi !

You may find also these useful. It seems that package cqrlog2.4.0-3 carries gtk2 libraries inside.

Hi Saku,

I tried both of your suggestions above ( post #7 and post #8 ). In both cases, I am still getting the same error about the missing gtk2.0 library when I try to sign a file to upload to LOTW.

I am about ready to switch to Ubuntu 20.04 if you do not have any other suggestions for me to try. Please let me know if you have any other ideas to try.

Thanks & 73,

Hi Terry !

Sorry but no better ideas. It is a bit hard when not seen and tested your setup by myself.
Maybe switch to another distribution helps. I hope so.
