Hello Shahnaz,

i hope the experts dont mind if i answer this since i have installed GnuRadio and UHD both recently with the help of the build script. 

If you have Ubuntu there is a simple way to get GnuRadio and UHD both from source. You just have to use the build script provided by Mr. Marcus D. Leech. You just move to the folder where you want to install it ( from the terminal ) and copy and  paste the command  which is provided by the GnuRadio website . Just search for the build script and you find it . Thats it! . the script will ask you for permissions 2 times ( as far as i can remember ) and does everything by itself. I found this method to be the easiest and most effective for me. The script also installs all the packages needed. Before that however make sure you have the latest stable version of Ubuntu and if you have old GnuRadio stuff installed somewhere you better delete them first! What i did to make sure i have a clean installation i took a backup from my old files on the computer and then reinstalled Ubuntu and used the script to get UHD and GnuRadio. 

I hope this helps,

Hi Ben,

No I tried to install it only through Pybomb but got an error.
Wednesday I got it install without an error but for some reason I deleted the linux image and tried to reinstall it on Thursday.
I keep getting an error as sounds like they have updated the pybomb source.

PyBombs.Fetcher - ERROR - Unexpected error while fetching wget+https://pkgconfig.freedesktop.org/releases/pkg-config-0.28.tar.gz.
PyBombs.Packager.source - ERROR - Problem occurred while building package pkg-config:
Unable to fetch recipe pkg-config
PyBombs.install_manager - ERROR - Error installing package pkg-config. Aborting.

I'm trying to check the older version source from git hub but couldn't figure out how check out and git works together to get the same source that I used last Wednesday night.

Hi Shahnaz -

Your message is a little confusing. Did you try to install GNU Radio both through PyBOMBS as well as your package manager?

If you used PyBOMBS to install GNU Radio, you do not need to install it a second time through your OS.

Hi all,

Last night I installed Gnu radio through Pybombs without any error.
I can see all folder being build correctly and have all the required library.
But some how when I try to run Gnu radio getting error

sudo apt-get install gnuradioThe program 'gnuradio-companion' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:address@hidden:~$ gnuradio-companion

as suggested in GitHub I created another folder to install the gnu radio other than install in on usr/local.

I added below line to my bashrc but no success :

export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:/home/shahnaz/Work/lib/python2.7/dist-packages

Do I need another Path set up for Pybombs ?
not sure what I'm missing but after I run the command
pybombs [-p myprefix] install gnuradio
I didn't get any error and at the end it confirmed successful installation.

Thanks in advance.
