Dump1090 mutability install?


New Member
As my old laptop don´t like the new client and crash I have decided to install Linux Mint on another harddrive for that same laptop so I can continue share my data.

I have read that Dump1090 mutability is better than the Windows version Dump1090 and will give more range so thats a great thing, but as a beginner with Linux, how complicated is it to install Dump1090 mutability and set gain and stuff?

Any help or links would be very helpful so I know if I even should try this without being a computer proffessor. :D

Im not interested in those heat maps and stuff, just to get it going and work along with VRS.
The following is taken from my RPi 2 base build instructions.

cd ~
git clone git://github.com/MalcolmRobb/dump1090.git
cd dump1090

wget https://github.com/mutability/librtlsdr/releases/download/v0.5.4_git-1/librtlsdr-dev_0.5.4.git-1_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i librtlsdr0_0.5.4.git-1_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i librtlsdr-dev_0.5.4.git-1_armhf.deb
mkdir git
cd gitsudo apt-get install librtlsdr-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev pkg-config debhelper
cd dump1090
dpkg-buildpackage –b
cd ..
sudo dpkg -i dump1090-mutability_1.15~dev_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg-reconfigure dump1090-mutability

sudo apt-get install lighttpd && sudo lighty-enable-mod dump1090 # if you want to use the external webserver integration
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install dump1090-mutability # to later upgrade to a newer version
# "apt-get upgrade" will pick up newer versions too

cd /usr/share/dump1090-mutability
mkdir html.original
sudo cp -a /usr/share/dump1090-mutability/html /usr/share/dump1090-mutability/html.original

Edit /etc/default/dump1090-mutability
# Port to listen on for Beast-format input connections. 0 disables.
Thank you very much Rory! I will look into it and your settings and some links I found will help me through it I am sure!
