Adding fldigi from the Berlios repository

January 15, 2010

The version of fldigi that’s built for Ubuntu 9.10 is a bit out of date. Luckily, the Berlios repository has a more recent version, and you can install that.

The instructions are here. In short form (specific to Ubuntu 9.10):

  1. Edit /etc/apt/sources.list and add the following lines:
    # Berlios repository for updated FLDigi
    deb karmic main
  2. Get the key for fldigi
    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver 8E7306F5
  3. Install fldigi
    sudo aptitude update; sudo aptitude install fldigi
