      Flex-radio long ago promised a Linux version, now they won't even answer
      the question.
      I tried using it under wine and Crossover Office some time ago. The
      problem was with installing .NET version on a non-monopoly OS. I tried
      building PowerSDR with Mono but that wasn't compatible with .NET.
      Under XP in a VirtualBox VM I got Winrad and Rocky to work but the audio
      came in splotches due to emulation latency.

      One thing I haven't tried is Rocky and Winrad with Crossover Office
      under Kubuntu as I couldn't get audio working in wine or Crossover
      Office on openSUSE - sound cards not seen, though the guy at Codeweavers
      had no problems with an identical openSUSE installation. Quite a long
      time ago sound under Crossover Office used to work for me with apps like
      Windows Media Player.
      My box is at openSUSE 11.3 which started out at a earlier version and
      progressively updated, so the Kubuntu box upgraded from 9.10 fresh
      install to 10.04 may work.

        Lastly, if you are genuinely aiming to get packages into Ubuntu, using IRC to talk to the MOTU folks who hang out in the #ubuntu-motu channel on irc.freenode.net is a great way to get your questions answered. I have found them to be friendly and helpful to people who (like me!) are genuinely trying to get software packaged for Ubuntu, or to fix issues in existing Ubuntu software. If you are creating packages just for your own use, or for a PPA, which you never intend to work on to good enough to go into Ubuntu, then it's somewhat impolite to ask for much of their time.

        There is also the Ubuntu-hams team as a resource. We have some people with some packaging experience, although not the level of experience that you find on the packaging-specific lists and IRC channels. There's a lot of collective knowledge about various ham applications for Debian and Ubuntu, so feel free to drop in.
