I’m new to the group. I need to access the PTT settings in VARA FM. It is installed on a RPi 4 with Build A Pi. Once installed, to run it, it seems to run in the background and I cannot see the 4 dials and the Settings menu. 

Any help appreciated.

May be silly, but did you try minimize and restore the window? Sometimes my VARA on Wine comes up with just a window frame and no contents, minimize and restore shows the window contents.

That's great news! I'm glad you were able to get everything figured out.

I'm not sure about the audio level stuff or if it's even still a problem for you, but sometimes the audio levels seem to have a bunch of noise if a USB sound card is not selected? I'm not an expert on the sound settings though.

In any event, glad things are working now.
