Hi Greg,

sorry to bother you again; I was just reminded that 12.04LTS indeed is fully endorsed by GNU Radio. It was just my personal preference to use the latest version of distros that made me a bit confused about the current support state of 12.04.

best regards,

Hi Gregory,
if you wanted to start with a clean slate, why did you chose a two-years obsolete LTS version?
Current Ubuntu LTS is 14.04, and I would strongly have recommended using that (sorry to say this afterwards) since it would have saved you a lot of things you needed to download and build from source, since the 12.04 versions are too old to work with GNU Radio....

However, it seems you got it to build, which really is nice to hear!

So, during your pybombs run, it asked you about an installation prefix. If you look there, you should find directories like "bin" and "lib"; look into bin for your gnuradio-companion executable :)

now, regarding your environment script:
./pybombs env
will write a $prefix/setup_env.sh . If you then edit (or create, if it doesn't exist) your /home/youruser/.bashrc, [1] and add a

source /path/to/prefix/setup_env.sh

and open up a new terminal window after saving that, you should be using a system configured to find all your shiny newly built software :)

Best regards,

As I asked last week (thanks for the responses); I wanted to begin using Pybombs and get on board with the new work.
I decided to start with a clean slate.
Downloaded and Installed Ubunto 12.04 Desktop LTS (Long Term Supported)
-did not choose developer thinking Pybombs will go get what it needs.
Downloded and installed Pybombs into my ~/home/xxxxx/pybombs
-git clone git://github.com/pybombs/pybombs
-cd pybombs
-./pybombs install gnuradio
A few hours later I ran (hurts to have a 1meg link in rural america and 240m at work)
./pybombs env
I did a ./pybombs list and had gnuradio and lots of libs (Yea!).
I went looking for setup_env.sh and could not find it.  The only executable .sh is named "jenkins.sh"
I went looking for gnuradio-companion with find (from /) and did not find it.
So I went to bed.
I keeping pretty good notes, so will publish the findings here or on the wiki later.
if you have notes I'm glad to add those too...   (my email address is my callsign @att.net)
Looking for some advice for this evening's work.
