    I once had the RSP2/RSP2pro installed and running on an Ubuntu 18 machine. It worked well.

    Last fall I reinstalled Ubuntu 18 on that machine. Everything works well except the RSP2pro and CubicSDR will not successfully install after months of off and on trying.

    Today I tried again. Using the instructions from, which was edited 7 hours ago (04/23/2021), I still have no luck.

    I’m not new to Linux. I’ve got a BSIT, Linux+, S+, CISSP, etc. Ubuntu 18 LTS is my daily driver on 3 workstations. I use Debian, Ubuntu, Kali and godforsaken Win 10 LTSC in innumerable VM instances. I make a living running Kali. Just saying.

    I’m wondering if cjcliffe left a few ‘cd’ commands out in the procedure. For example between ‘Build and install SoapySDR’ and ‘Build and install liquid-dsp’ sections. Taking the prompt as a cue I reverted to ~/ before ‘Build and install liquid-dsp’.

    I’m also wondering if incomplete removal of previous install failures is to blame. I manually removed everything I could find.

    Any ideas? Anyone successfully do a recent Linux install?

    Here are a few of the issues:

    wxWidgets-3.1.5$ ./configure –with-opengl –disable-glcanvasegl –disable-shared –enable-monolithic –with-libjpeg –with-libtiff –with-libpng –with-zlib –disable-sdltest –enable-unicode –enable-display –enable-propgrid –disable-webkit –disable-webview –disable-webviewwebkit –prefix=echo ~/Develop/wxWidgets-staticlib CXXFLAGS=”-std=c++0x”

    configure: error: unrecognized options: –disable-webkit

    ./configure –with-opengl –disable-glcanvasegl –disable-shared –enable-monolithic –with-libjpeg –with-libtiff –with-libpng –with-zlib –disable-sdltest –enable-unicode –enable-display –enable-propgrid –disable-webkit –disable-webview –disable-webviewwebkit –prefix=echo ~/Develop/wxWidgets-staticlib CXXFLAGS=”-std=c++0x”

    configure: error: unrecognized options: –disable-webkit

    ~/CubicSDR/build$ cmake ../ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DwxWidgets_CONFIG_EXECUTABLE=~/Develop/wxWidgets-staticlib/bin/wx-config

    — HAMLIB was not found.
    CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:99 (message):

    — Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.


    bash: ./CubicSDR: No such file or directory


    looks like the config flag ‘–disable-webkit’ is no longer supported in wxWidgets version 3.1.5.

    I ran ‘configure’ with this command and it finished without errors:

    ./configure --with-opengl --disable-glcanvasegl --disable-shared --enable-monolithic --with-libjpeg --with-libtiff --with-libpng --with-zlib --disable-sdltest --enable-unicode --enable-display --enable-propgrid --disable-webview --disable-webviewwebkit --prefix=/usr/local CXXFLAGS="-std=c++0x"

    Hope this helps,
