WSJT on Raspberry Pi using Raspbian



After the previous success on WSJT on UBUNTU it was next time to try WSJT on the Raspberry Pi. It only needed a few tweaks, all related to where portaudio19 was installed on the RPI:-

 svn co svn://svn.berlios.de/wsjt/trunk

 cd ../trunk

./configure --with-portaudio-include-dir=/usr/include --with-portaudio-lib-dir=/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf

it did a whole load of things starting at "Compiling wsjt" and ended with "Installing into: /usr/local"

still in trunk:-:

make clean

make

after it finishes make sure you have permissions to execute  ../trunk/wsjt.py:-

sudo chmod 777 wsjt.py

Even though the serial port isnt used, WSJT still tries to talk to it so make sure /dev/ttyAMA0 permissions are set appropriately

to launch WSJT:-

./wsjt.py

Set the options. Make sure that the serial port is set to /dev/ttyAMA0, which is not the default
