Below are some updates and instructions for version 4.1 and now HamLib 3.3 is included as an upgrade too!

*** Release Notes:

Major Announcement: This script has been converted to a BASH script versus the original SH scripting. This has allowed me to be more creative with adding some enhancements for everyone’s benefit. This script can be used for the entire life cycle of the newest 4.1 release. No more downloading with every update. I plan to do even more, but this is a great start and took me several hours of experimenting and learning. The best part is, IT WORKS!

This has not been tested on Raspian Wheezy, but has been test and validated on Raspian Stretch. Highly recommend you upgrade your pi to Stretch anyway.

Hamlib – Now referenced to Version 3.3 for rig control capabilities…

Fldigi – All future versions of Fldigi 4.1 release will be checked for and installed with this new script. What this means is I will not have to continue to update manually for this main release of 4.1 and you can use this script over and over until 4.2 is available. Nice, eh?

************************************************************************

1.) Download the script here into your home directory logged in as “pi”:

2.) You can also download via CLI on the pi using this command:

wget http://indyham.com/downloads/pi3-fldigi-setup-4.1.sh

**** Just make sure you are in your pi home directory ( /home/pi ) ****

3.) Run the following command to make the script executable: sudo chmod +x pi3-fldigi-setup-4.1.sh

4.) Now execute the script: sudo ./pi3-fldigi-setup-4.1.sh – This will create a folder named “HamPi-FLDIGI” in your home directory. Feel free to edit the script however you would like if you wish to change that….

5.) Now watch the magic happen…. Grab a drink, some food, walk the dog, etc.

6.) This has been tested on a Raspberry Pi 3 model running the full Raspian Stretch desktop version (not lite) and takes about 45 minutes to an hour from start to finish depending on how many updates you have to install for the packages as well as how fast your Internet connection is.

If you need some help on trying to figure out how to get this script onto your Raspberry Pi, look into WinSCP as an option. It is free and easy to use. Drag and drop…. You can also use command line to get files directly onto the Pi. If you need some help, email me and I will do my best to try and help. Give me some time to respond as I sometimes go days without checking personal email depending on what is going at work. Gotta pay the bills, right?

P.S. As always, I do not take responsibility for any damage, issues, misuse, unexpected outcomes, etc. by using this script. The script provided is purely experimental, distributed as experimental, and should be used as such. Use at your own risk and provided “AS_IS.” It is free for you to do whatever you would like with it as well…
