During the installation process I got errors about files that could not be found. I tried running GQRX but it would not run. Running from a terminal gave a missing file error. I uninstalled and reinstalled but got the same errors. As it does say this version is for stretch I was disappointed but not surprised it did not work on buster. I uninstalled this version. I then looked for GQRX in "Add/Remove Software". I found gqrx-sdr 2.11.5-1+b4. As this looked up to date I decided to install. This all went well. On running it started with an error along the lines of "looking for pulse audio". On searching for "pulse audio" I found "pulseaudio emulation for ALSA (apulse-0.1,12-2). I installed this. This time I did not get the moan about pulse audio and I was able to set it up. My hardware was recognised and all appeared to be working accept there is no sound. I have some experience in setting up the sound in stretch. I am outputting via 3.5mm stereo jack. I did remember to input
from the command line and other sources play OK so I don't think it is the way I've set up the sound. I have also tried a usb external sound card which I know to be working in stretch but had no luck with this either. Has anybody else come across this problem with buster and is there a solution. I'm not keen to install pulse audio to fix this.
