Note from DM3DA: On my Ubuntu system (10.10), I need to install the sources. If I install the deb-file with gdebi, I run into trouble with write-permissions of some system files (e. g. /dev/console). But it may work for your system.

The primary URL for tucnak downloading is http://tucnak.nagano.cz/download.php .

Download first source code or binary packages of Tucnak. There are maybe binary packages for your distribution but it can be out of date.

Tucnak requires glib 2 library. It's probably part of your distribution. If you want to compile Tucnak from source code you must have installed development version of glib library too (devel package - libglib2.0-dev*.deb (Debian), glib-devel*.rpm (RedHat), libglib2.0*.rpm (Mandrake)). The library you can download from www.gtk.org (not glib.org :-)

Since 2.0 it's mandatory to have installed SDL library (if you can compile it from source code you must have install devel packages too - libsdl1.2-dev*.deb (Debian), SDL-devel-1.2*.rpm (RedHat), libSDL1.2-devel*.rpm (Mandrake).

Installation from source code

Installation from source code is universal way to install program. There must be installed developments tools for C language on your PC.

tar xzf tucnak2-2.07.tar.gz
cd tucnak2-2.07
make install

Program is normally installed into directory /usr/local/bin. Maybe you will need to add path to Tucnak binary. You can add line export HOME=/usr/local/bin:$HOME to end of file /etc/rc.local in bash shell and then restart rc.local (or restart system).

Configuration files are allways saved in ~/tucnak directory.

Install on Debian


Simplest way is to add lines

deb http://ok1zia.nagano.cz/debian/ok1zia binary-i386/
deb-src http://ok1zia.nagano.cz/debian/ok1zia source/

to your /etc/apt/sources.list . After it use

apt-get update
apt-get install tucnak2

Download manually and install

Download package tucnak2-2.07*_i386.deb. Install it by command:

dpkg --install tucnak2-2.07*_i386.deb

Download sources and create package

If binary package doesn't present, create them by extracting source code by commnad:

make deb

Install on Ubuntu

Debian packages can either be installed from the sources (same as Debian section above). Alternatively, they can be installed with gdebi. You may need to install gdebi from the Ubuntu Software Centre. Download the latest deb-file from http://tucnak.nagano.cz/download.php. Use tucnak2-*_i386.deb for a 32-bit system, tucnak2-*_amd64.deb for a 64-bit system.

Start gdebi, e. g. by command:


Open the file tucnak2-*.deb. Ignore the recommendation to install an older version from a software channel. Then click on "Install Package".

Install on RedHat like distribution

Download package tucnak2-2.07*.i386.rpm, and install it by command:

rpm -i tucnak2-2.07*.i386.rpm

If rpm binary package doesn't exists, create them by extracting source code and execute commnads: (you must install package rpm-build first on Mandrake)

make rpm

Source package RPM (SRPM) you can create by:

make srpm

Files are saved in /usr/src/[redhat|RPM|packages|rpm]/* (depending on your distribution). Is necessary to have a write right to this directory.

Remark: Creating RPM packages isn't perfectly tested. If you have any question for function or you know how to fix any mistake then write me, please.

Install on Gentoo

You can find Tucnak also on Gentoo Linux. You can find it in the portage main tree in category media-radio.

Just use

 emerge -av tucnak2

to build it for your system. You can set USE-flags 'alsa', 'ftdi', 'gpm' and 'hamlib' to enable the support for Audio I/O via Alsa, USB support for coming DAVAC-4 device, console based mouse-driver and hamlib support.

At the moment it only supports x86 and amd64 architectures. If you want to use it on other architectures (ppc, ...) please contact me by mail.


Install on Arch Linux

You can build the AUR package tucnak2

Install on openSUSE

openSUSE users can find rpm packages here http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/hamradio/ Even simpler, search for "tucnak" at http://software.opensuse.org/search and follow the instructions for 1-click installation.

Install on Asus EEE laptop

Asus EEE is using Xandros, which is commercial fork of Debian. Unfortunately used Xandros version corresponds with Debian Etch but current DEB's are build under Lenny. So I create, time after time, binary for EEE. It is compiled without libraries that are uncommon here. Namely libgpm (here is no virtual console), libfftw3 (seems to be not present in Xandros) libhamlib and libftdi (EEE is expected to use without rig control).

Go to http://tucnak.nagano.cz/download.php and copy location of tucnak2-eee-2.32.tar.gz . Press Ctrl+Alt+T to run terminal and type:

/home/user> wget http://tucnak.nagano.cz/tucnak2-eee-2.32.tar.gz
/home/user> tar xvzf tucnak2-eee-2.32.tar.gz
/home/user> tucnak/tucnak

That's all !

If you wish to create the eee package, look at eee.sh script in tucnak sources. You must run it under Debian Etch i386.

Tip: Look at http://wiki.eeeuser.com/ for more info about EEE.

Many thanks to Zdenek OK1VKZ for lending of laptop.
