RE: [wsjtgroup] WSJT and Ubuntu 10.04 works good here
- Hi Matthew.
Yes i like Ubuntu also, it just nearly always works, period. I like that. I do have XP on another hard drive which i can boot into but rarely use it. Just for that program or two that Ubuntu doesn't run. After many years of Windoz slowing down, crapping out, popping up odd windows, and just outright failing at times, Ubuntu is GREAT. I just don't get why most users would put up with that mess.
But much of the secret maybe that viruses and malware are written for Windoz. So maybe if Ubuntu got really popular they may write malicious code for it? We might ought to keep Ubuntu secret :-) That would be selfish would it not?
Yes i've seen the had distro and tried an older version once. I also use Ubuntu with PSK31 and other modes sometimes.

I've done very little WSJT lately after many years of activity. Shortly before my activity dwindled, I was using Linux Ubuntu 8.?? and had installed it the hard way (compiling, etc _ stuff i don't understand that well) with help of an overseas ham (sorry i don't remember your name). I tried to install it through the Ubuntu installer but it would not work (a seemingly known issue among the ubuntu forums). Then i upgraded to 9.?? and the compiled working install of WSJT quite working. So what i was using of WSJT, i used under XP.
Anyway, i upgraded Ubuntu yesterday to 10.04 and decided to install WSJT through the Ubuntu Software Center (the easy click here way :-)) just to see what would happened. After adjusting audio levels, etc, It seems to work great! Maybe the bugs have been ironed out for the most part? Your mileage may vary i'm sure but works great here!
