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


Hello. I have same problem with same library in Ububtu 18. 

I had wsjtx 2.1.2 running fine on ubuntu 18. Then I went to update to 2.3.0 and it just never launched, although icon was there. I did uninstall and try several "tricks" but never launched. In the software center I had weird record saying I had 2.3.0 uninstalled and 2.1.2 installed. I did format my HD and install Ubuntu 18 from scratch to delete any inaccurate license record. Now with a clean fresh updated ubuntu 18, wsjtx 2.4.0 wont install (a bunch of dependency problems).
I have noticed that wsjtx.2.4.0...deb file is i386 for ubuntu 18, 32 bits, when ubuntu 18 is actually 64 bits (intell/amd 64). I am guessing there is the problem. The only wsjtx.2.4.0...deb file amd64 is stated for ubuntu 20, not 18.

I have narrowed down the error on installing wsjtx 2.4.0 on ubuntu 18 to the following:
"Unpacking wsjtx:i386 (2.4.0) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of wsjtx:i386:
wsjtx:i386 depends on libboost-log1.65.1."
This is preventing wsjtx to be completely installed. I do have wsjtx icon and when clicking to start, it just stays in sand-clock for a while and then I get a warning in ubuntu saying I have installed a package with unment dependencies. When I run the "fix" bay means of "partial upgrade" or by "sudo apt-get install -f" it automatically removes wsjtx because it is the problem.
“The following packages will be REMOVED:
The weird thing is that the libboost-log1.65.1 is actually installed as seen below:
