There shouldn't be any problem pulling ubuntu updates. All my linux machines are kept up to date (kernels too).

IDK. The base Linux distros install easily, whether its Ubuntu or Mint. It's just the gnuradio install that doesn't go smoothly, and it's been different error sequences for each distro version. Anyway, the fresh copy of Ubuntu 16.04 is almost finished installing. Can anyone point to a post number that has the correct commands for installing gnuradio on U16.04? I'm looking at #1705

For grins, I just did a fresh install of Mint 18.3, then op25. I captured a transcript of everything I did to get it working (i.e. I'm hearing decoded audio) - http://www.dseven.org/tmp/op25-install-mint18_3.txt

In short, the only things I had to do beyond the usual install.sh were to install python-numpy (maybe should be added to install.sh), and blacklist some kernel modules.

BTW, rx.sh is just a wrapper script around rx.py - you can see where it outputs the dynamically generated trunk.tsv file and the rx.py command that it runs.

OK, so it *seems* like I have a successful installation using Ubuntu 16.04.4 as the base OS.

These are the steps I took: (no semicolons)

Edited: /etc/apt/sources.list file to uncomment applicable deb-scr statements;
Ran: sudo apt-get update;
Ran: sudo apt-get install git;
Ran: cd ~;
Ran: git clone https://github.com/boatbod/op25
Ran: cd op25
Ran: ./install.sh

I didn't see any fatal errors, thoughI I saw some developer errors about whitespace again - but the install completed.

I'll test it over the next few days when I get back from a trip.

Thanks to all who helped!

The whitespace warnings can be ignored. I haven't found a way to eliminate them yet.

For this test I was using a new SDR-RTL, I decided to test using the V3 model. On startup it didn't work. After adjusting the tune with the >, it started to decode. At the bottom of the screen the working CC looks like this: 770.16875 (1200).

How do I adjust for the re-tune? Change the CC? What setting? Adjust the PPM, in the start script?

I was testing using Ubuntu 16.04. Has anyone tried Linux MInt, or Ubuntu 18.04? Does either work as well?

1 PPM at 770MHz would be 770Hz ... so try "-q -1 -d 400" - that should get you fairly close. Open the mixer plot (press 5, if using boatbod's code), and fine tune it to center, then update '-d' to whatever you come up with.

See posts #1991 and #2003 of this thread. The short answer is "yes".
