Raspberry Pi – Update to WSJT-X v2.0.0

Version 2.0.0 of WSJT-X brings several new enhancements but is incompatible with previous versions of WSJT-X. As a result, all users must update to version 2.0.0. The update process shown below can also be used for a new installation. In the case of an upgrade, all your settings are preserved.

Here’s the step by step update guide:

  1. Use the Pi browser to navigate to the WSJT-X site at: https://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/wsjtx.html
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the page, under the title ‘Installation Packages for WSJT-X’ select and download Raspbian Stretch, ARMv6,… wsjtx_2.0.0_armhf.deb
  3. When the download is complete, open a terminal session and enter cd /home/pi/Downloads
  4. Next enter: sudo dpkg -i wsjtx_2.0.0_armhf.deb
  5. This will install the new version over the top of your old installation, but will preserve your settings.
  6. That’s it!
