This is how it looks...
I assume this will work on 32bitDebian (had a report of no) I do run in 64bit mode bullseye RPi4 fully updated to the day of this post. the very nice Build-A-Pi project is also used to load ham software.
There are some nice tools for ham radio included in this project.
1. Install WineLink
WineLink deploys WINE with a full Winlink RMS version and VARA using this following project script. We only need the WINE and the VARA modem part of it but this installer simplifies the installation.
2. Download VarAC
Download, unzip and place the files in the ~/.wine/drive_c/VarAC directory
3. Launch varac
Using the following command. You can use in a menu.desktop object:
env WINEDEBUG=-all wine /home/pi/.wine/drive_c/VarAC/VarAC.exe
I had to launch a few times and get the settings saved and working but it did work with no major issues! using a IC-705.
