Thread: gqrx without pulseaudio

  1. #1

    Default gqrx without pulseaudio

    Does anyone know of a gqrx build for 13.1 that will run without pulseaudio?

    I am using 13.1 with the xfce desktop, which did not install pulse audio. My multimedia is working for me and I don't want to mess things up by installing pulseaudio.

    Any and all hep appreciated.

    I'm not familiar with this package or whether such a build exists. So, unless someone chimes in to the contrary, I think you may need to build this yourself. I note that the relevant section of gqrx.pro contains
    Code:
    unix:!macx {
        packagesExist(libpulse libpulse-simple) {
            # Comment out to use gr-audio (not recommended with ALSA and
    Funcube Dongle Pro)
            AUDIO_BACKEND = pulse
            message("Gqrx configured with pulseaudio backend")
        }
    }
    and from here

    https://github.com/csete/gqrx/issues/155

    it is mentioned that 'AUDIO_BACKEND = pulse' needs to be commented out. (Looking through the code, it then seems to fall back to requiring 'gnuradio-audio' to be installed. I don't see such a package available for openSUSE.)

    I've done a little reading on building gqrx. It looks to me like it would be easier to install pulseaudio. Ah, well. Thanks for the input :-)
