Locked Re: WSJT-X No Longer Opens on Raspberry Pi 3B+ #install #raspberryPi

Minor correction (so there is no confusion):

pi@myraspberrypi$ sudo dpkg -i install <whatever you want to install>

should be:

pi@myraspberrypi$ sudo dpkg -i <whatever .deb you want to install>

blah blah blah failed because of dependencies...

pi@myraspberrypi$ sudo apt-get -f install

[messages etc about repos]
Setting up [dependency]...
Setting up [package you wanted to install]

It will first satisfy the deps then install the package.

Even easier - newer versions of apt (>1.1) can install local files AND
satisfy dependencies all at once:

pi@myraspberrypi$ sudo apt install ./foo-1.2.3.deb

Easy peasy.

You are missing a load of dependencies needed to install the later versions. The dependencies must be installed first.
Try, from the Pi@raspberrypi $ prompt ( not the download prompt )

pi@raspberrypi: $ sudo apt install libgfortran5 libqt5widgets5 libqt5network5

pi@raspberrypi: $ sudo apt install libqt5printsupport5 libqt5multimedia5-plugins libqt5serialport5

pi@raspberrypi: $ sudo apt install libqt5sql5-sqlite libfftw3-single3 libgomp1 libboost-all-dev libusb-1.0-0

Then install WSJT. I believe you can double click on the .deb file in the download directory to accomplish this.. IE the dpkg command line is simply replaced by a double click on the file.
