Hi. I am just beginning to learn how to use gnuradio. I am currently running Linux 12.04 LTS and installed gnuradio using the script provided by Marcus Leech. I tried doing a little simulation in gnuradio-companion using a source and two wxgui sinks. The problem is that when i run my simulation, i can't see the second sink's window entirely, i have a small laptop screen. How or what can i do in order to see the gui better? Important Note: i recently began using gnuradio and linux, i know really nothing. Please explain like you would explain to a 3 year old. Thank you!

Still, you'll want to use the WX GUI Notebook. Under the 'WX GUI Widgets' just drop a notebook block down on the canvas. When you bring up the properties box, the two most important things are to set the 'ID' and the 'Labels.' Since you only have two sinks you want to see right now, just have two strings in the Labels list. Now, in your wxgui objects, scroll down until you see 'Notebook'. The format for this is: Notebook ID, position in list. Say your notebook's ID is 'notebook', you would just put in 'notebook,0' and 'notebook,1' into the Notebook parameters of each wx gui object you have. Tom

Hi, This is a common issue with laptop screens and low vertical resolution. This page explains the window grid positioning: http://gnuradio.org/redmine/projects/gnuradio/wiki... So if you make one of your wxgui components use 0,0,1,1 and the other 0,1,1,1 they will be side by side instead. I have really found that plugging my laptop into a monitor to gain space is very helpful. Andrew

Hi, again! Thank you both very much for your answers. They were very helpful. Have a great day, everybody! (and this is how my road to implementing a STBC transmission begins)
