Hi All,
I have been trying to configure FT8 on my Standalone RB2.0 on RasPi v4 with kernel mode RB Driver. 
I have tried everything - Pulse Audio, Alsa Loop-back , even half try to Jack2. But I could never get audio on JTDX. 

If anyone has successfully configured  JTDX or WSJT-X  on standalone Radioberry, please explain the exact steps.

John,

This is not a radioberry issue but a linux related one.  

A lot of people are having problems to get this running..... iam thinking of making an image or is there an image we can add the radioberry?... do people have ideas what must/should/could be installed.

You need to run a virtual audio card program. In linux this is a module (driver) called : snd-aloop .

This module must be loaded. For loading a module a program modprobe is available..

sudo modprobe snd-aloop  but you can add some parameters:

sudo modprobe snd-aloop enable=1,1 index=4,5 id=vac1,vac2 pcm_substreams=2,2 

This is all described in the instructions in the attachment.

The other pictures show wsjtx running with pihpsdr.

Hope this helps.

Hi Johan ,
Thanks for such illustrative guide. I wish if I could add this in Radioberry Wiki!
I tried your steps, bud sadly trying Alsa, PS, Jack et all, I ended up with more than 40 - 50 Sound devices in my my device list I see in JTDX , filling full 4 pages of devices . Yes below screen show is made from 4 different screens, scrolling down one full age of devices - stupid of me!! . Either I will have to find how I can clean the spurious devices to bare minimum like fresh install and then try your steps, or do a fresh install.

Hello OM Johan,

I was trying to configure "Radio" Tab of WSJT-X settings. Rig selected as "OpenHPSDR PiHPSDR".
But, CAT control shows no "Network Server", instead it shows "Serial Port".

Bit confused!
Could you please give details to configure the CAT Control between WSJT-X and pihpsdr?
