FT-991 With HamLib & Fldigi on LinuxMint 18

In order to use the Yaesu FT-991 with linux mint 18 you need the latest hamlib and having the latest fldigi helps as well. If you want to install from source code I have another how to made for that

Not sure why it didnt work on my mint 17 system, but I was able to build a deb for both hamlib and fldigi on 18. So to save fustrations building and installing you can just download the deb files below and install the latest (at the time of this writing --fldigi 3.23.16-1-- --hamlib 3.0.1-1--)


First you need to install a dependency



Now Download the hamlib_3.0.1-1_amd64.deb file and the fldigi_3.23.16-1_amd64.deb file. Save them both to the same folder, open up a console, cd into that folder and run the following command to install it.



You should now have a working version of hamlib and fldigi that will work with the Yaesu FT-991.


Now all you need to do is configure fldigi to connect to the FT-991 which I have covered under a how to guide: FLDIGI With FT-991 On Linux
