How do I run gr-scan?

I downloaded this program that someone made hoping that it will help me
I don’t know how to run it. It’s on my computer but it doesn’t have a py
file. What should I do?

Dear Ashraf,

Google shows that there’s different things created by different people
that are called gr-scan; where did you download yours? Are you aware of
how to build out-of-tree modules?

Best regards,

I guess it’s just “make” with that one, then. It has a makefile. Whether
that works really depends on your system – for whatever reason pinkavaj
decided not to use gr_modtoll and CMake, it made automatic finding of
libraries impossible.

Best regards,

I tried that and it keeps giving me an error about <gr_top_block.h> is
a file or directory. Which is making me thin that I have the folder in
wrong place or they’re forgetting to add some files to the .tar

In that case, the module is not GNU Radio 3.7 compatible, since
gr_top_block.h is a 3.6 thing, although pinkavaj seems to indicate he
tried to port it to GNU Radio 3.7.
Maybe contact the author, or try a different OOT or build it yourself.
By the way, the module uses gr-osmosdr, which needs osmo-sdr, and that
already comes with exactly the functionality the author says this OOT
has – install osmo-sdr and run “osmocom_spectrum_sense”.

Best regards,

Ok, so there isn’t much I can do with the files now. That program title
looks similiar to usrp_spectrum_sense, they probably do the the same
then, right?
Thank you so much for helping me This really helped.

Maybe you’d just want to describe what you’re trying to achieve as
exactly as possible (in a new thread, to make following easier for
people not involved in our bilateral discussion), and we, as a community
might find a way to suggest something!

Best regards,
