Re: fldigi Rig control only when root user Now fixed.
- View SourceWell I did log out after making the changes.
But it's now working and one of 2 things cured it.
Either the logout was not enough and the full restart X which in this
case I did by doing a full restart did the trick, or because I was
swapping from the root version to the regular user and back I did not
notice until after the restart that the actual rig selected in the
regular user version was still my FT817 from last nights tests and not
So all I need now to tidy the job up now is to replace the back to
back 9 pin the 25 pin pair of leads joined with a gender changer for a
straight 9 pin to 9 pin and the jobs a good one.
So I's try for a qso next and then the PSKmail.
Thanks again for the pointers folks and I hope to work some of you one
