Installation script for LinuxMint 19.2 / 19.3

Hello all....

Often new users to linux have problems to install CQRLog.
As i wanted to have a script myself to install both CQRlog and update HAMlib so all newer trancievers are there, i wrote one.

I use LinuxMint 19.2 with Cinamon ,
So for this distro/version I made 2 scripts, one with and one without the update of HAMlib 3.3. For this distribution only!!
It will also add the user to the dialout group which is one of the most common reasons that CAT control does not work.

I think this could be of use to other ppl as well , so i placed them on a GITHUB page.
https://github.com/avdpas/LM_CQRlog_Installer

They are free to use, but it is on your own risk!
Read the readme file !

If there are many ppl using a different distro/version, and ppl would like a script for that distro, i would be able to make that available as well.

Any ideas of features are welcome as well.

regards,

Alex

LinuxMint 19.3

Well, they just released 19.3 yesterday. I will test this as soon as possible, but i do not think there will be a big difference.
Might be some dependency issues.

I will post as soon as i have tested the script.

LinuxMint 19.2 & 19.3

Hello all,

I tested the installation script on a clean install of LinuxMint 19.3 and the script worked fine.
Also i added the install of X-Planet and X-Planet images as CQRlog can use this, and it's not installed by default.

regards,

The easiest way to install

The easiest way to install CQRlog is in the downloads section, copy and paste 3 commands into the terminal one at a time and follow the prompts. this will also automatically install updates since it is a PPA.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ok2cqr/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install cqrlog

I have never had any issues doing it this way.

Re: The easiest way to install

That's basically what the script does....
But it also makes sure you are in the dialout group, installs xplanet (incl images) and installs HAMlib 3.3

I agree with you , that has been the way i have been installing it as well....
