QSSTV 7.1 is a program for receiving and transmitting SSTV and for receiving FAX. A lot of enhancement have been made since QSSTV version 5 and 6. It took me a while to come up with a new version due to my professional activities.
This is a beta version, and you can expect to find updates and bug fixes on a (not so) regular basis.
UPDATE Monday 21 May 10:49:52 CST 2012: QSSTV 7.1.7 is now available in the Debian repository for about a month now as of writing this
Getting the source:
Installing the required software:
# apt-get install g++ libfftw3-dev qt4-qmake libqt4-dev hamlib-dev libasound2-dev
$ tar -xvzf qsstv_7.1.7tgz $ cd qsstv_7.1.7 $ qmake-qt4 $ make
you can either run QSSTV from it current location or you can install it system wide by
# make install
The only problem I got with running QSSTV was it complaining about GTK+
$ ./qsstv QGtkStyle was unable to detect the current GTK+ theme.
But it can easily fixed by running
or you can just edit the Trolltech.conf file and change the line ‘style=GTK+‘ to ‘style=Cleanlooks‘
