Just installed linsmith through the ubuntu repository so I got v0.99.3 and Ubuntu 8.04.
The problem is that I cant add loads, I enter
1850 MHz 30 + j20 Ohms
But the "New" button is greyed out. I try by entering the values from the tutorial on the homepage but that doesnt help neither.
Help is much appreciated as this could be a helpful tool for RF port matching for me!
This is a known problem - it has been solved in version 0.99.7 (we're at version 0.99.11 now).
Try the debian packaes (I believe they are compatible, at least they're at 0.99.7) at:
And send a messages to the Ubuntu maintainer asking him to update to at least 0.99.7,
though there are a few improvements after that which may interest you:
I'm sorry I cannot generate .deb packages here, as my distribution is based on Slackware.
Maybe, using the Debian tools, you can convert one of the other packages I put on Sourceforge to debian/ubuntu (there are .tgz and .rpm packages)..
Finally, the best way to keep up is to compile the source yourself. It's not that complicated.
