I am VERY new to Linux and this logging program as well. What I see using CQRLOG so far, has me blown away with all the functionality, performance and screen layout. It seems to be just what I am looking for, to get away from Windows - once and for all.
For many years, I have used DX4WIN on my windows machine without any problems.
Related to PC to radio communications:
I am able to talk to the radio and keyer without any problems, but here on Linux, not so well. On my setup, I am coming out of a USB port on the PC and going to an external USB to Serial interface cable adapter. The PC sees the new port as, COM3. My radio is an FT1000D and no matter how I try to configure the settings (I even tried the settings Tom, K8WDX had on his YouTube channel) and they didn't solve the problem either. My settings using DX4WIN are the following:
RTS High: Yes
DTS High: Yes
Works great with DX4WIN and N1MM - Nothing on CQRLOG.
As for for the CW keyer interface not working:
I come out of the standard motherboard PC parallel port (0x378) which is the default port number. From there, I have a simple transistor switch keyer interface that is taken directly from the N1MM instructions (same instructions as CT logging program) and this keys the radio without any problems. Again, nothing working with CQRLOG.
Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon
Can anyone offer any help? I REALLY want to completely get away from Windows, but my primary contact logging program needs to working properly first.
