    Had FLDIGI suite working on Catalina. After Upgrade to Big Sur, none of the software will open.
    Anyone have Fldigi working on Big Sur??
    Thanks

    I found a version of Fldigi 4.1.16 that runs fine on Big Sur. Sorry, I don’t remember where I downloaded it from.

    Thanks. I just found the downloads specifically for Mac Big Sur Fldigi etc. at w1hkj.com/bigsur/

    What happens when you try to open the app?

    Under Big Sur, if a downloaded app is not notarized, you may need to remove quarantine attributes from the app and all its downloaded libraries. You can often do that by right clicking to open and answering any permission dialogs.

    Yes, Dave (W1HKJ) had working versions of all of the FL* suite a day or two after the release of Big Sur. The issue was needing to build against a newer (beta) version of the FLTK libraries. He is also hard at work on a M1-chip compatible version, but isn't there yet at last check.

    Good morning,

    Did the Big Sur version work for others? I'm still seeing the same crash with it as I did with the .17 version on Big Sur.

    I've used it just fine. Did you download from the LINK provided above?

    Tried that link for the Big Sur specific version with the same result.

    Anyone know if Dave has a support email? I’m happy to capture error logs.

    The best place is the LINUXHAM mailing list on Groups.IO. However, his direct email is HISCALLSIGN@bellsouth.net.

    Obviously, replace "hiscallsign" with his actual call sign.

    Quick update, ran down the issue with the Groups.IO list. Dave had me remove the fldigi_def.xml file and re-run configuration I'm up an running again.
