Installing Gnuradio for USRP HackRF RTL-stick on Ubuntu 16.04

on Ubuntu version 14.04 LTS 'Trusty'

A recipe for all the main SDRs.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gqrx/snapshots
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install gqrx gnuradio gr-osmosdr hackrf uhd-host

This will install gnuradio, gnuradio-companion, gqrx as main programs and support for HackRF, USRP.


Before you go and build your own radio in grc (gnuradio-companion) you should check with 'gqrx' if the gnuradio installation is working.

If it does not work

Check if old gnuradio installations exist in /usr/local and remove them.
