Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty not ready?


LimeSuite GUI opens.

First Module FFT viewer- crash

  • You have some obsolete package versions installed. please upgrade the following packages and check if the problem still occurs:

limesuite, limesuite-udev, puthon-soapysdr

I will try to clean this out and reinstall.

There was no Pothos or QSpectrumAnalyzer either

These are in separate repositories. The instructions on the gqrx website installs only what is necessary for gqrx.


There is still something looking for UHD:

404 Not Found
This error happened:

I don’t know if these are related:

I tested the installation procedure on a freshly installed 17.04 and it worked just fine. I got to the point where gqrx was running. There was a message regarding UHD because the UHD repositories are not available but that’s all.

I can’t help you with the errors you see there, but they do look very serious.

@joshblum I forgot about hackrf initially. Now I have updated it so you may want to rebuild soapyhackrf.


Also, an advice Larry… In case you are using Synaptic package manager, go to Settings -> Preferences and disable the “Consider recommended packages as dependencies” option. This will reduce the amount of unnecessary packages installed.


Thanks again. I changed the preference and reloaded GQRX and now it works.

@joshblum @csete I wondered if you had a summary of packaging updates that I could send to the new list at:

There may only be one or two subscribers at present, but good to get into the habit :slight_smile:


Hi Andrew,

It was basically just an update to support 17.04.




After quite success with LimeSDR on Win10 now I am trying to conquer Ubuntu 17.04 & Lime on another PC :wink:
Keep the fingers crossed…


Some progress, here


CubicSDR & Lime :smiley:
