    Problems with GQRX after a fresh new installation

    I installed a fresh new version of kali linux on my USB-Stick 32 gb.
    That works fine, i got a persistence version of Kali with no problems.

    After that i installed gqrx and gnuradio with
    HTML Code:
    #sudo apt-get install gqrx gnuradio

    Now i receive this error message

    HTML Code:
    # gqrx
    gqrx: error while loading shared libraries: libvolk.so.1.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    I searched the file with
    HTML Code:
    find -name '*libvolk.so*'
    No answer from the CLI.


    Then i did this

    HTML Code:
    # ldd /usr/bin/gqrx | grep libvolk
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found

    apt-cache shows this

    HTML Code:
    # apt-cache show gqrx
    Package: gqrx

    Description: Transitional package for gqrx-sdr
     This package is empty. It only depends on gqrx-sdr to ensure a sane

     .
     This package can be safely removed once gqrx-sdr has been installed.
    Description-md5: 42e805d540d66df0a8c39fbb8c043eeb

    Maybe libvolk.so.1.3. isn't found on my System, but synaptic says libvolk is completely installed.

    HTML Code:
    ldd /usr/bin/gqrx | grep libvolk
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found
        libvolk.so.1.3 => not found

    My question now is how can i get the file libvolk.so.1.3 to run gqrx? I hope some of you pros can give me the answer.

    with best regards

    RE: Problems with GQRX after a fresh new installation

    I had the same problem with a recent install. Found a fix at https://github.com/ptrkrysik/gr-gsm/issues/355

    See the last post by user velichkov. Basically, you run package manager against libvolk1.3 to find libvolk.so.1.3.1 and create a symlink to that file

    Just in case I have to come back to this after a fresh install the fix dmanemann is referencing is..

    ln -sf /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libvolk.so.1.3.1 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libvolk.so.1.3

    Thank you, guys! I could confirm the error for an SSD-installed Linux version 4.9.0-kali3-686-pae and for a Sticky-Finger's-Kali on Raspberry Pi 3B. Now I will try the solution.
