Hi guys!

Been reading that there are hams out there that are encountering problems
installing some ham software and wine in the new Mint OS's.

I've come across problems in getting some software operational, including
wine not installing correctly, in Mint 15,16 and also Mint 17 not
installing.
The folks at Mint have updated and reworked Mint 13 (supported until 2017)
so it's not much different than the newer Mint OS's.

One of the problems I incurred was that MMSSTV would not work since a
sound card could not be opened in MMSSTV. Downloading the new version
of MInt 13, I found many new items in Mint 13 that were not in the original
version. By using the software manager in Mint 13, I was able to have it
install a later version of wine. Going into wine configuration, I was
able to
load sound cards into wine which I could not do before on different Mint
OS's.
Now, MMSSTV works flawlessly and so does Fldigi . WSJTX, and other hamware
for Linux.

Just thought y'all might be interested in DLing the newer version of
Mint 13 and
give it try instead of going on to the newer versions. BTW, if you do
try it, don't
use synaptic to install any software unless you have to. The software
manager
does a better job of installing software such as wine.

Cheers and have fun!

73,

Henri,

Also consider Mint Debian which is a rolling release, no more
reinstallations.

Have you tried QSSTV? Not only is it open source (no wine required) but it
also support DRM, i.e. Digital SSTV.

Thanks,

This OOM (93) will give it try and see if I can get it up and running!

Hey Henry,

Instead of using MMSSTV under Wine, why not give the native Linux QSSTV
or TRXAMADRM applications a try? Both natively support HamDRM-based
digital SSTV, rig control, etc. Qsstv also supports Analog SSTV.

TRXAMADRM -

Thanks for pointing me towards QSSTV. The install instructions worked
the first time...only took about 15 minutes. I'd used an older version
of Qsstv, but this looks nice and appears to run smoothly under Mint 17
with Pulseaudio.

Cheers,

Hi David:

Yep, although I've been a long time MMSSTV user, (off and on), I'll give
it a try!
Since you mention it supports digital SSTV, may have been pictures.

Thanks, David.
