Making wxtoimg work on your 64 bit arm Odroid N2+

Recently I’ve gotten into RTL-SDR / HAM Radio and have been working on getting this cool package of scripts working that’ll automatically grab NOAA / ISS and METEOR data and decode it!

Ran into an issue today with wxtoimg. Since it’s abandonware it’s not possible to compile it, and the only binaries are for 32bit arm, not 64bit, which is what my Odroid N2+ is.

Here’s the quick way of making it work on your 64bit arm computer.

First, you have to set up to run multiarch

dpkg --add-architecture armhf
apt-get update
apt-get install libc6:armhf libstdc++6:armhf
apt-get install libasound2:armhf
apt-get install libx11-6:armhf
apt-get install libxft-dev:armhf libxft2:armhf
apt-get install ghostscript

Then, go ahead and download wxtoimg and install it

wget https://www.wxtoimgrestored.xyz/beta/wxtoimg-armhf-2.11.2-beta.deb
dpkg -i wxtoimg-armhf-2.11.2-beta.deb

Now you should be able to run wxtoimg with no problems!
