Issue with gr-funcubedongleproplus

Hello! I’ve gotten GNU Radio 3.7.2.1 compiled and running. I have a
FunCube
Dongle Pro Plus V2 that I received in the last week.

My environment is Debian wheezy running a generic kernel.

I am getting the following when I try to run the narrowband FM example.
It
has to do with the control part of the dongle. I tried the udev change
with
no success. I am new to working with devices in udev so I’m sure that’s
the
problem.

Here’s what I get…

Showing: “/home/mike/fcd_nfm_rx.grc”

Generating: “/home/mike/fcd_nfm_rx.py”

Executing: “/home/mike/fcd_nfm_rx.py”

Using Volk machine: avx_64_mmx_orc
Funcube Dongle Pro+ found as: plughw:1,0
Traceback (most recent call last):

File “/home/mike/fcd_nfm_rx.py”, line 257, in init
self.fcdproplus_fcdproplus_0 = fcdproplus.fcdproplus("",1)

line 103, in make
return _fcdproplus_swig.fcdproplus_make(device_name, unit)
RuntimeError: FunCube Dongle V2.0 soundcard found but not controlpart.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you!

What do you see in your message log, when you connect the dongle to your
computer ?

Thanks for looking at this.

Mike H.

The first part looks o.k. I don’t know anything about MTP devices, but
after some googeling I suppose there is an udev misconfiguration.

Please look, if there exists a rule file for MTP devices that is
triggered by the funcube dongle.

Good day all.

I wanted to let you know that I got the gr-fcdproplus driver working.
After
doing some digging around and getting nowhere I flushed my Debian
system,
did a clean install, updated it to the current stable release,
“carefully”
downloaded all the Gnuradio requirements, downloaded and compiled GR,
then
compiled the driver.

Some part of all that worked. Now I’m diving into learning a little
about
DSP.

Thank you for your time.
