@AxPU could you please fix this?

AxPU commented on 2015-11-06 22:28

I have now added codec2 as an optional dependency. It is available in AUR and can, if needed, be used for multiple programs.

chuser commented on 2015-10-15 18:53

I guess it depends on the use case. I only have hiqsdr at the moment so quisk's inbuilt option probably is all I need so long as it keeps up with new modes.

Someone with a traditional tcvr as well as SDR might be interested in freedv as a standalone, but then I guess they could install that separately anyway.

Maybe I'm not the best one to give an opinion!

AxPU commented on 2015-10-12 21:15

Yes this is of course possible. But wouldn't it be better to use the freedv and/or codec2 packages from AUR to provide these system-wide instead? I could then add them as optional requirements?

What do you think?

chuser commented on 2015-10-12 17:21

As part of the install is it possible please to mv the freedvpkg folder across as well?

nickoe commented on 2014-09-05 20:52

You did not install. Run makepkg -i -A.

kc7noa commented on 2014-09-05 20:11

not working ....

even at the terminal ...

if i type "quisk" i get
-bash: quisk: command not found

but if i try makepkg -A (at the computer that its on)
it says its already installed

nickoe commented on 2014-09-05 18:52

If it is installed, you should be able to run with just 'quisk'. But you say you are remote, this is a GUI app.

kc7noa commented on 2014-09-05 18:51

ok ... did use -A,

not sure where it got installed .. or if it did actually ...

Went to opt/ and noth there ...

nickoe commented on 2014-09-05 18:05

Use -A, or do as the error suggests.

kc7noa commented on 2014-09-05 17:48

[kc7noa@alarm quisk]$ makepkg -i
==> ERROR: quisk is not available for the 'armv7h' architecture.
Note that many packages may need a line added to their PKGBUILD
such as arch=('armv7h').
[kc7noa@alarm quisk]$

nickoe commented on 2014-09-05 16:45

You should read the wiki abiut how to use AUR and makepkg.

Basically you should type makepkg -i in the folder with the PKGBUILD.

kc7noa commented on 2014-09-05 15:47

python2.7 is installed ....

what do you mean by "install"

make from folder quisk just hits error ...

nickoe commented on 2014-09-05 08:25

Yep, that us your problem. Use python2. Why don't you install?

kc7noa commented on 2014-09-05 05:54

i just tried --- mind you this is from a remote computer .... i need to go to the remote site to do this from the computer its running on ...

Im trying to run quisk from the folder that quisk was Tar'd from ...


[kc7noa@alarm quisk]$ python

[kc7noa@alarm quisk]$

nickoe commented on 2014-09-05 05:40

Ok, that is what it is supposed to do, that means that it was imported succesfully. And I guess if you do the same in python3 then it will give the error you described first.

How are you running quisk, with /usr/bin/quisk? That file specifically use python2, where we just confirmed that the module imports successfully.

kc7noa commented on 2014-09-05 04:15

im not sure how ...

[kc7noa@alarm quisk]$ python2

nickoe commented on 2014-09-04 22:02

@kc7noa, can you start python2 and import wxversion manually?

kc7noa commented on 2014-09-04 21:52

Any progress .. i still get

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 24, in <module>
import wxversion # Thanks to Mario, DH5YM
ImportError: No module named 'wxversion'

and make hits errors too ...

AxPU commented on 2014-06-02 22:06

New Version

AxPU commented on 2014-04-01 21:06

Update, missing dependendy - wxpython

AxPU commented on 2014-03-16 22:52

Now also installs the hiqsdr module

AxPU commented on 2014-03-01 20:24

Such version, very update!


AxPU commented on 2013-11-18 23:53

Updated to 3.6.14

AxPU commented on 2013-11-03 10:32

Updated to 3.6.13

AxPU commented on 2013-09-04 20:16

quisk can now be started via commandline by simply typing "quisk"

Also updated the checksums, now also using sha512

AxPU commented on 2013-08-13 23:55

OK, thanks. I'm thinking about it. I have just updated the orphaned package until now but I'm still not sure if the installation in /opt is the best way. On the other hand it's a lot of pyhon stuff and I don't know if I want to put it in /bin ...

let's see.

But a simple commandline start script should not be a problem

Any (more) ideas?

nickoe commented on 2013-08-13 17:25

Maybe you should add a script so it is able to be started from commandline and not only python /opt/quisk/

AxPU commented on 2013-08-13 16:04

adopted package, does build and run current version but still needs some tweaking (testing dependecies etc)

pse test and report back!

nickoe commented on 2013-02-24 23:49

The source do seem to be available,

AxPU commented on 2012-12-19 23:53

The source package url is no longer valid and so it cannot build.

An update to the current version would be nice too :)

The PKGBUILD generates a working GUI but I have not tested with hardware.
