BlueDV for Linux ( EXPERIMENTAL )
BlueDV for Linux is running on all Linux versions that can run MONO 4. ( also raspberry pi 3 )
If BlueDV crashes when you go to setup, you are running an old version of MONO!! Please check with the following command your mono version.
- DSTAR ( DEXTRA, DPLUS, DCS )
- FUSION ( YSF, FCS )
- DMR ( Brandmeister, DMR+ )

- There are issues known with DVMEGA direct connected to the Raspberry PI. Please use a BlueStack.
- /dev/ttyUSB0 is hard to find! Make sure you selected the lowest in the list!
- I can not give support on this version.
- Does not run with AMBE3000.
- Software the software at: ( http://software.pa7lim.nl/BlueDV/BETA/Linux/ )
