Locked Re: FT897D. Hamlib error? #WSJTX_config

Yes I agree, didn't I say I cleaned it all out and used the tar?? I only joined the group in the last few days as until now have been able to sort it all out.

the Linux package files we provide are targeting specific Linux distribution versions, if you are not running those versions you should not be trying to adjust other package versions to make it work, you should be building WSJT-X from sources, or waiting for your distribution's packaging manager for WSJT-X to make a new version available.

Here similar problems. Was running fine, tried to upgrade to the new .deb version (2.2.2) on XUbuntu 20.04 and heaps of errors. Cleared it all out using purge to start afresh and try the tar file.

Heaps of dependency problems, but resolved all them and finally ended up with a compiled, working version. Did all the checks (user part of dialout group, etc) and no matter what I do cannot get it to talk to the FT-817. I also use a Signalink USB interface. Previously that had problems as had to disable the PTT in that, but CAT did work.

Now have the dreaded hamlib errors.

That's what I am doing.
I have not heard from other hams about this problem. 
Seems I am no alone having this problem.

Thanks for info.
