I've run into some software that seems to be either no longer available hosted on the original sites or is no longer compatible with my system and required rebuilding. I'm hosting them here in hopes it will save others a lot of headaches that I unfortuniately had to go through.

G4HFQ Software Mirror - Bob, G4HFQ, has stated he plans to shut down his website in May 2022. I have written him and received permission to host a mirror of his content on my site so that others can benefit from his excellent work.


Official WSJT-X v2.0.0 no longer supports my version of Linux since they moved to a newer version and link against newer libraries. I've successfully recompiled against the older version on my system.

wsjtx_2.0.0_amd64-linux_mint_18-2.deb - Linux Mint 18.2 64-bit (Ubuntu 16.04 base)
wsjtx_2.0.1_amd64-linux_mint_18-2.deb - Linux Mint 18.2 64-bit (Ubuntu 16.04 base)
wsjtx_2.1.0_amd64-linux_mint_18-2.deb - Linux Mint 18.2 64-bit (Ubuntu 16.04 base)
wsjtx_2.1.2_amd64-linux_mint_18-2.deb - Linux Mint 18.2 64-bit (Ubuntu 16.04 base)
wsjtx_2.2.2_amd64-linux_mint_18-2.deb - Linux Mint 18.2 64-bit (Ubuntu 16.04 base)


Official LoTW TQSL is not pre-built for Linux. With a bit of help from this slightly older guide, I've successfully compiled against the versions of its dependencies on system.

tqsl_2.4.3-1_amd64-linux_mint-18-2.deb - Linux Mint 18.2 64-bit (Ubuntu 16.04 base)
tqsl_2.4.7-1_amd64-linux_mint-18-2.deb - Linux Mint 18.2 64-bit (Ubuntu 16.04 base)

Note: if you want a launcher menu icon, you will need to manually create a text file /usr/share/applications/tqsl.desktop and paste in the following:
