2018-12-23 I upgraded the 'radio workstation' thompson 1 year ago
As mentioned in New 2 meter distance: 506 kilometers I was still running the old wsjt-x because a newer version requires a newer Linux environment. With a bit of time in the christmas holidays available and more and more things depending on this upgrade I ordered a new disk from Azerty so the reinstallation would be easier. The old linux installation on the radio workstation was several Ubuntu versions old, it was still a 32-bit installation because of earlier hardware compatibility issues and something in D-Bus communication gave lots of errors at bootup, so I expected another upgrade to give me an unavailable system. The new disk came faster than expected, and I did an install with Xubuntu because I'm ok with the Xfce environment. One problem is back: the system starts with the two monitors swapped and after the screensaver kicks in the monitors somehow end up in mirrored mode. And Gcmwin for linux failed in the upgrade since it depends on older libraries. Already reported to the author. Lots of upgraded software, the most important ones in amateur radio are CQRLOG which showed the well-known MySQL problems until I used the version from the CQRLOG ppa. Everything now works fine and all the earlier confirmations of PSK contacts have been imported. And the trigger that all started this upgrade WSJT-X has been upgraded using the WSJTX General Availability Release ppa.
