Confirmed one space at end of line works. I always write posts in Toggle View (blue arrow) This ensures my posts are 100% correctly formatted each time, so no fancy tricks are required :)

Remove the equinox PPA it's obviously not supported. Please read here - https://www.linuxliteos.com/manual/software.html#ppa before adding PPA's in future.

This is a test post.Using return x1 appears like this.

This is a test post.
Using return x2 appears like this.

This is an experimental post.
Using a space at the end of the above line , then pressing return x1, works correctly.

I noticed this worked when editing another post a few minutes ago.
Hope it helps.

Hello,

this is the book (pdf) https://ranous.files.wordpress.com/2018/02/rtl-sdr4linux_quickstartv2-18.pdf

I used for installing the drivers, and software, it worked without any issues.
The above book doesn't cover TV though this is for using it as an SDR (software defined radio). Although the device is meant for TV someone noticed years ago it can be hacked and used as a very low cost SDR, equivalent to about $1000+ radio equipment, it is why RTL SDR has became so popular.
Currently also giving rise to its popularity is a distro called Pi-Aware made by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, and FlightAware, if you run that on a Pi 24/7 and register the base station FA give you full access and a free enterprise account for your help monitoring the aircraft. If there are not many registered in your area or if the signal is very bad in that area, they send you special equipment for Free if you run the base station server.
Although that makes it easier to set up, it can be set up on various Linux Distros, including Linux Lite, unsure if any of the community do this yet ?

On the Ubuntu link I posted earlier there are 2 solutions shown, the final one is a PPA it gives instructions, copy/paste (or type) these in to terminal one line at a time and press enter, wait for the prompt then enter the next line.
I am not positive ? but it seems from the wording they have added the make file instructions posted earlier in the thread, in to the PPA.

The make file it assembles (compiles) a program in C, to do this you also add it one line at a time and press enter after each line in your terminal.
In the book The Linux Command Line, pdf version free here - https://sourceforge.net/projects/linuxcommand/files/TLCL/17.10/TLCL-17.10.pdf/download

In Chapter 23 , it explains about compiling programs, and there are exercises to practice doing this safely, this chapter is only 9 pages. As I had already done this chapter I felt more positive about giving the instructions in the book a try.

Hi,

I'm new in Linux and so far I'm loving it! But I got the following message while attempting to update the software:

Does anybody have a solution for this?

Thank you so much in advance!

Looks like your device uses RTL2832U, or has worked with that in the past. Also looks like kernel support has been around for a while as well. @bitsnpcs may be your best source here as I have never used your device. But yes enter rtl2832u in the synaptic search box.

Debian has an rtl tools package that includes an EEProm interface to program from, from which you can work directly with the chipset. Not for any amatuer endeavor though. Could you post the OEM name of the stick, and the chipset it uses i/e rtl2xxxx? If you can find that chipset number (rtlxxxx) just paste it in synaptic package manager search bar to see what support is currently available from Ubuntu repos. Make sure multiverse is enabled.

Yea, direct meddling in the chipset seems too early thing for me, yet...
On my stick I read: LV5TDLX  DVB-T USB
trade name is "NOT only TV".

" If you can find that chipset number (rtlxxxx) just paste it in synaptic package manager search bar to see what support is currently available from Ubuntu repos."

What should I paste in the synaptic actually?

thanks Trinidad

Hello,
I have the same sticks, 2 of them and also an RTLSDR-blog one.
I have not tried to use them for TV though, but radio, CubicSDR, and dump1080 for aircrafts.
Have you tried this solution - https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2109585

Hi, Bitsnpcs
There seem to be few ways and methods in the post. I'll go through them though some of the commands I tried here and there, just blindly rather without success.
Thanks
