I’m hoping someone can help me as well. I’m trying to use the build scripts from the SDRPlay.com/downloads area.

I ran both:

1installAPI.sh
2buildSoapy.sh

and don’t believe there were any errors. I rebooted and get the following from lsusb:

Bus 002 Device 005: ID 046d:c534 Logitech, Inc. Unifying Receiver
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 1df7:3000

Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

When running Soapyutil, I get this error:

SoapySDRUtil -probe="driver=sdrplay"
######################################################
##     Soapy SDR -- the SDR abstraction library     ##
######################################################

Probe device driver=sdrplay
Error probing device: no available RSP devices found

I’m on linux mint 20.2.

Any help greatly appreciated!
