Steps to successfully install srsGUI

2018-03-26

srsGUI is the graphic user interface (GUI) for srsLTE. There are some dependencies issues to be solved to make it.

About srsGUI

As mentioned in srsLTE - GitHub, srsGUI is an optional requirements for real time plotting. Today we are going to install it.

Steps

Certainly, one can follow the instructions on srsGUI website: srsLTE/srsGUI - GitHub.

Install boost

sudo apt-get install libboost-system-dev libboost-test-dev libboost-thread-dev

Install Qt4 and Qwt6

sudo apt-get install libqwt-dev libqt4-dev

Alternative approach (try the above one first)

  1. Download Qwt6 from the official website: Qwt User’s Guide.
  2. Install libs to install Qwt6:

sudo apt install libqt4-dev libqt4-dev-bin libqt4-opengl-dev libqtwebkit-dev qt4-linguist-tools qt4-qmake

  1. Install Qwt6:
1
2
3
qmake qwt.pro
make
sudo make install

Install srsGUI

If there is nothing missing, run:

1

4
mkdir build && cd build
cmake ../
make
sudo make install

The printout of cmake is like:
