• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Scankid...it sounds like you want to run it in Windows. This program wasn't designed to run in Windows. It uses a different operating system called Linux.

Is it saying 'command not found' for the make and 'sudo make install' lines? If so, then you haven't installed the compiler packages. They aren't installed by default with Ubuntu. I think all you should need is a package called 'build-essential' which gives you make and a few other compiling-related commands.

There are a few ways to install packages in Ubuntu, the simplest way to describe here is at the command line, just type:

sudo apt-get install build-essential

This will first ask for your password, then install the package (or tell you it is already installed).

Then try the commands listed previously, and see how things go...

i've tried your commands.I even downloaded the dsd files 3 times. the terminal won't allow me enough time to type password. I think there is something wrong with the dsd download from megaupload. when I open up the file there is no exe or setup file to be found . maybe there suppose to be like that?. the terminal also said no directory found and 3 incorrect password attempts came up because no time to type it in. other things: no such file or directory, sorry appears when trying to type password.etc. something is not right!

thanks ! nexus. I'am getting further now . I updated the program alittle and now i'am at the stag where syn appears with nexdn info and it comes upon the screen but can't decode any thing yet or hear anything.it ask for audio command now . i guess this is to set it on what system you want to decode and hear!

ok, comming from another forum thread in reference to DSD and Unbuntu 10 They are incompatible.....to get the audio from DSD to work you have to use Unbuntu 8.0 or earlier.

Thats incorrect, DSD works very good with Ubuntu 10.04, it will not work with version 10.10.

I believe you'll have to add a discriminator tap.
