          _
          Same here, install ing on Debian derivatives (like Ubuntu) is a breeze, just follow these instructions:

          Download the current release from:

          http://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/K1JT/wsjtyy_rxxxx_i386.deb

          (yy_rxxxx reflect current release)

          Here's how to install it: First make sure you have installed these Linux packages (can be done with Synaptic Package Manager):

          python-numpy

          python-tk
          python-imaging-tk
          libfftw3-3

          Move wsjtyyrxxxx_i386.deb into the directory (normally your home directory /home/***/) where you want WSJT to reside. Then execute the following command (in Terminal):

          sudo dpkg --instdir=/home/pif/WSJT8 -i wsjt_9.0r2136_i386.deb

          wsjt_9.0r2136_i386.deb

          To start WSJT, enter these commands in Terminal:
          cd
          WSJT
          ./wsjt

          or, you can create a Desktop-icon instead:

          First create a file in your home folder, "RunWSJT" with this content:

          #!/bin/sh

          cd ~/WSJT
          ./wsjt

          Make sure it's executeable (Filemanager -> Properties -> Permissions )

          Then right-click on the Desktop -> Create Launcher

          Fill out as appropriate:
          Double-Click the the icon and select your preferred Desktop icon – I use wsjt.jpg (converted from wsjt.ico)

          Press OK and you're done, you can now launch WSJT by double-clicking the desktop icon.
          This procedure has been validated on Ubuntu 9.04, 9.10 and 10.04, and should work for all Debian derivatives.

          Since the Signalink (which essentially is a USB sound device) doesn't like WSJT's attempt to set the sample rate, you have to trick it (this dodge also works for many other "modern" sound devices):
          create a hidden file with the name ".asoundrc" in your home folder (/home/”your login name” and this content: (omit the asteriscs)


          ********************************
          pcm.radio {
                  type hw
                  card 3
                  device 0
          }
          pcm_slave.radioslave {
                  pcm radio
                  rate 48000
          }
          pcm.radioconv {
                  type rate
                  slave radioslave
          ********************************
          the card number is the (hw:x,0) from above, in my example 3, in most cases it would be 1.

          After a restart there will be a new sound device "radioconv" select this instead of the "real" one and you'll be fine.

          You can also build WSJT from source. The latest subversion released by the developers (as well as archival versions) can be retrieved from the sourceforge

            You can also build WSJT from source. The latest subversion released by
            the developers (as well as archival versions) can be retrieved from the
            sourceforge repositories. You'll have to resolve the dependencies, but
            these are all listed on Joe's WSJT page. If you decide to go this route
            and get stuck, send me an email.

              Well - let s see. V5 gives me an install error.  V7 installs fine but then fails when executing, shutting down and exiting the program.  V9 installs and runs

                Well - let's see.

                V5 gives me an install error.  V7 installs fine but then fails when executing, shutting down and exiting the program.  V9 installs and runs but I get no "audio" into the program.  Other programs using sound run successfully so the sound card is set up properly.  I'm running the latest version of Ubuntu on a older (but not ancient) X86 processor - maybe a P3+ or something along that vintage.

                This was strictly an experiment.  I am not a Unix guy and I'm not going to take the time to become capable in command-line.  I was just curious.  The fact others get it to run means it's ME and not the program, which is an answer I can live with.  I have an assortment of Win machines that run all my radio stuff with no issues.

                Thanks for the confirmation WSJT works in Linux.

                  The latest version of Ubuntu is awfully heavy for that old machine. It's not
                  my favorite distro, but folks seem to like it.

                  As to audio...

                  Make sure pulseaudio is running.

                  Test it on some streams or audio files.

                  Once that's going set WSJT to use Pulse for input and output and restart WSJT.

                  After that, and *when* WSJT is running (or any app you want to adjust levels
                  for or select inputs for) open the PulseAudio Volume Control app, this is
                  *not* the volume control speaker in the systray. Install the app if it isn't
                  there (PAVU).

                  Then look at the tabs and you will see sliders there for any app sinking or
                  sourcing audio and from there you can select the correct inputs and outputs as
                  appropriate. Pulse will remember these and the settings for the next time the
                  app starts.

                  DO that and yo hsould have audio.

                  If you still don't, shoot us some additional details on your sound card.

                  I won't go into the limitations of the *buntu releases after 10.10 and the
                  removal of the OSS emulation from the kernel. Suffice to say that Pulse should
                  work for you provided you have enough CPU power.

                  What window manager were you trying to run?
