I never installed Gnuradio using a Debian package but if GRC is working that means your Gnuradio installation must be complete. Why don't you try running a few example programs and see if they work.

Run the dial_tone.py in the /usr/local/share/gnuradio/examples/audio directory. If you want to use GRC to run the example programs then run dial_tone.grc program in /usr/local/share/gnuradio/examples/grc directory. If you hear a dial_tone then most probably the installation is fine. If you have a USRP then you will find examples in 'digital' directory in the same path.

On another note I don't understand what you mean by "Do I have to build it from scratch
in grc? Or do I have to still  build it from scratch using the "Build Guide". If its a debian package then the installation is done by the debian package manager and what you have at the end is a working installation. GRC is just a graphical tool and has got nothing to do with installation of gnuradio. Installation of Gnuradio from the source package is not at all difficult no matter how new one is to Linux. Just follow the instructions given here http://gnuradio.org/trac/wiki/UbuntuInstall and you will find how easy it is to install. If you still have problems then we can help you.

Hi all

I have re-installed Ubuntu 9.04 and still have questions regarding getting
gnuradio up and running.

Following these instructions

"GNU Radio Release 3.2

With the latest GNU Radio release 3.2, binary package installation is
available for Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty), bypassing the need for manually
installing build tool prerequisites and performing a source code
installation. In addition, installation and configuration of the USRP and
USRP2 is automated. This is fastest and easiest way to get a working GNU
Radio platform.

The rest of this page is now somewhat outdated and needs some
reorganization. "

I went to  "Debian Package Repository for GNU Radio" and followed the
instructions. Everything seems to have installed corrctly. I am able to open
GNU RADIO COMPANION. But how do I get a "working GNU Radio platform" as
stated above in "GNU Radio Release 3.2"? Do I have to build it from scratch
in grc? Or do I have to still  build it from scratch using the "Build Guide"
(which I tried without success.)?

>From what I can interpret in the first paragraph under "GNU Radio Release
3.2", it is not necessary to build from the "Build Guide" if I have Ubuntu
9.04 and using the latest GNU Radio release 3.2 - I can just use the "binary
package" installation.

I have searched the web but haven't been successful in finding the
information I need.

I guess my question is to get gnuradio up and running do I need to build it
from scratch using grc or is there a quicker(interpret easier) way of doing
