I got wfview up and running with Ubuntu using the -s parameter on command line to adress my IC-7300 and my IC-9700. APRS is running nicely with XASTIR plotting the stations.
I want to run WSJTX on my IC-7300 in parallel. Do I need to define additional loopback devices … and is there anybody who has already done son?
Indeed I have done this. You need two loopback devices. One for the transmit audio path, and one for the receive audio path. Each loopback device has two “endpoints”, which correspond to either side of the virtual patch cable between programs. One program sits on one side of the patch cable, and the other sits on the other side of the patch cable.
I think our Audio Setup page in the manual covers this (although it may not explain it completely).
That’s the text I read very carefully and it was very helpful. Today I was looking for some details on virtual-sound.conf. I currently believe that I need to define two more loopback devices in that file but I don’t know how to. Thanks for the hint regarding the name of the sound devices. I was a little confused because my devices have names with the underscore.
your explanation was really helpful. And of course, thank you very much for your efforts. . Somewehere in the forum I read about how to identify the different sound cards. I will dig into that. When running APRS on 2m and WSPR in parallel, I need a second set of loopbacks. Although having found and read modinfo snd-aloop I am not sure whether I understood it correctly:
Does it mean that I should have the following content in the file virtual-sound.conf:
That would give you four loop backs!! You just need two, just exactly like our example in the documentation. Each loopback has two “ends” identified by the DEV parameter visible with some audio systems.
What’s in our documentation is exactly what is on my computer. And it works for me with all the digital mode programs I have tried.
