I have Fldigi 3.22 installed on a dual boot laptop; Mint 13 and Mint 17, connected to an FT-857D.
While all works correctly on the Mint 13, using either rigCat or Hamlib on Mint 17, the CAT functions
fail to operate. Even with Hamlib as the selected option, the status Log gives the following (partial)
I: init_modem: mode: 1, freq: 0
I: Open: Port Audio open mode = Read, device type = paALSA
I: src_data_reset: rbsize = 16384
I: do_readfile: Reading 247 bytes from logbook.adif
I: do_readfile: Read 1 records in 0.00 seconds
I: kiss_init: UDP Init - OK
I: kiss_loop: Kiss loop started.
I: ReadFromHostSocket: Kiss RX loop started.
I: rigCAT_close: Waiting for rigCAT_thread
I: rigCAT_loop: Exit rigCAT loop
I: ~KmlSrvImpl: Cancelling writer thread
I: ~KmlSrvImpl: Cancelling subthread
I: ~KmlSrvImpl: Thread stopped. Message:Canceled thread
I: ReadFromHostSocket: Kiss RX loop exit.
I: kiss_close: Kiss loop terminated.
I: close: Stopping XML-RPC server

The PTT and waterfall info work properly. The Hamlib settings were copied from the working version (Mint 13)
but I continue to get "hamlib_init: IO error".
Any suggestions as to what files to examine/compare or setting to change. Since the USB to CAT interface cable works with Mint 13, I believe it's in the software.
Perhaps a query to the Mint 17 developers; but I thought I'd start here.
Thanks for any help/suggestions.

Have you tried using Pulse and flrig ?

Did you try to use KISS ? If so have you read the Help files ?

I use Mint 17 and when started from a terminal it makes no mention of
most of what you have posted here.

You should be seeing Navtex. I also see no mention of opening the macro
file.

Let me send you my startup from the terminal off list.

How did you install 3.22 ?

Ed,
Thanks for the suggestions. For both Mint 13 and 17, I used synaptic package to download and update fldigi.
Yes I do see several lines in the log file with NAVTEX, Wrap, Ship, bbss, etal; I just listed a partial of the log file.
Since I'm using Signalink USB, it likes PortAudio and USB Codec. And no, haven't tried Flrig (nor KISS), since Fldigi works with Mint 13, just looking to get the CAT functions working with Mint 17 using the same settings that worked with the older version of Mint.

Seems to be a problem with User rights to the i/o ports in Mint 17.

You must add the current User to the group dialout to get access to the serial Ports or USB/serial adapters.
Open "User and Groups", select the User, click on groups and select dialout.

And them of course you will need to log out and back in as that user.

Bill, others ...

In my Debian 7.7 synaptic there is only Fldigi 3.21.48 available, so it
makes me wonder if in your Mint is a newer version readily available, or
you downloaded the newer version and installed after that.

Secondly, does Fldigi 3.22 support native AX.25 packet mode (AFSK)?

Finally, is it possible to use Signalink USB for VHF handy talkies?

Regards,

Misko
