So I just took a quick look at the new update... the only way to do ptt is to write a command file to key the transmitter (I'm not focusing on that right now but i'm sure a script wouldn't be too hard to do)... its a shame they don't do what fldigi did and implement the gpio as check boxes (or even a drop down list)

Art.

Did you add an issue to the JS8call issue tracker? I think after v1 Jordan might do something.

Be sure to mention what fldigi did.

What version of fldigi?
And do we have to build it?

so I did join the js8call group and told them that they need a gpio, the response i got back was to write a script and they might add it later

so the last couple of versions of fldigi had it in there, I think the repository version is too old but the current beta image here has the current build. here's my build script, it should work on any linux box but I did this specifically for this project, you can change the version number to get other versions, I have an update script that I'm working on that will update the fldigi suite (note you need to uncomment the last line in /etc/apt/sources.list to enable source dependency)

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
#grab any dep we forget:
    sudo apt-get build-dep fldigi -y
    # from http://www.kk5jy.net/fldigi-build/, make sure they are installed
    sudo apt-get install libfltk1.3-dev -y
    sudo apt-get install libjpeg9-dev -y
    sudo apt-get install libxft-dev -y
    sudo apt-get install libxinerama-dev -y
    sudo apt-get install libxcursor-dev -y
    sudo apt-get install libsndfile1-dev -y
    sudo apt-get install libsamplerate0-dev -y
    sudo apt-get install portaudio19-dev -y
    sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0-0-dev -y
    sudo apt-get install libpulse-dev -y
    cd ~
    wget https://sourceforge.net/projects/fldigi/files/fldigi/fldigi-4.0.18.tar.gz
    tar -zxvsf fldigi-4.0.18.tar.gz
    cd fldigi-4.0.18
    ./configure
    make
    sudo make install
    cp data/fldigi.desktop ~/Desktop/
    cp data/flarq.desktop ~/Desktop/

remember you don't have to do this for the current beta, only do this if you are doing it from scratch (in which case you might want to look at my scripts at github.com/nouse4anick/DRAWS)
