Re: [linuxham] Re: IC-7410 and Ubuntu
You indicate that "The audio is working through the USB cable..." I noticed that set mode 45 switches the USB connector between CI-V commands and RTTY decode. The Windows driver purchased from icom might provide this capability automatically on Windows. On Linux, It may be necessary to run a separate audio cable from the ACC connector to the audio input/output of the PC and set mode 45 to CI-V.
As the IC746Pro does not have a USB connector I had to use the audio from the ACC connector.

I have used this rig and computer configuration before using Windows and HRD and it worked, also I did not install the CP210x driver on Ubuntu as I did in Windows. The audio is working through the USB cable as I see the waterfall and can decode cw but still unable to control the rig.
