For the Linux and Xiegu Users
Paul Dordal (K2PMD) has written a superb guide to setting up our Digimode-4 interface on the Raspberry Pi for WSJT-X. This is a great resource for setting up our various interfaces on Linux and with other radios as well. The sections on the FTDI drivers for CAT control and the sound card settings are equally relevant to many of our products.

Paul's guide is here:
