Fear not, we'll get things sorted out, but first, it would be helpful if
you could give us a bit of background information.
- Which Ubuntu 14.04 ( x86/32bit or x86_64/64Bit)?
- When you say previous version, are you referring to the WSJT-X in the
Ubuntu Repository (r3496) ?
- Have you setup and installed from John's PPA (AC6SL) previously?
- Which .deb package did you download?
- How did you perform the installation, according to Joe's Website
(WSJT-X User Guide)?
- Under F2 > Audio Tab, what audio options are being present in the
If you used dpkg -i, more than likely, you'll need to install some
dependencies, as dpkg does not resolve deps the same as apt-get or Gdebi
would normally do. WSJT-X v1.3 r3496 is Qt4 based, v1.4 is Qt5 based,
thus the additional package needs.
Based on your feedback, I can steer you in the right direction. Bare in
mind, a tremendous amount of code work as gone into v1.4 as well as many
modifications to the hamlib version that shipped in the .deb package.
While it's painful on your end, it provides valuable feedback to Bill &
Joe on things that need to be resolved before the formal release.
For what it's worth, I use the Navigator Interface, while it's a bit
different than the SignaLink, it's still USB CAT, PTT and USB Audio
Codecs. For Ham Radio activity, I normally set the default Input and
Output audio devices to USB Audio Codec. This is not just for WSJT-X,
but most all Radio applications. I build WSJT-X from source, as well as
Hamlib3, and have had very few issues on the FT-2000D & FT-1000MP, but
those aren't very close to the FT-947 in terms of rig control, but it's
been stable nonetheless.

Just downloaded this new version on my system running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
and it failed to run CAT on my FT947 nor did it find audio from
Signalink. Previous version worked fine though it always showed an
error when I first started the program. But then it proceeded to work
fine. Should have left well enough alone...."if it ain't broke...."
