Good Morning,

I have installed PSKMAIL Client on an Ubuntu 810 notebook.
I have fldigi 3.12. installed and it is working as it should.

I am a little confused about the startup instructions.

The wiki says

Note: The following command sequence is deprecated. Clicking the PSKMail icon automatically will start fldigi and itself.
Start fldigi with the following command:
$ fldigi --profile emc &
Then start pskmail with the command:
$ pskmail &

When starting this way it says --profile is an unrecognized option.

But it says that this command is deprecated anyway so just launching pskmail will start fldigi. I cannot get it to do that.

So I launch it like this and these are my results

eric@eric-xastir-tablet:~$ ./fldigi &
./fldigi: Symbol `hamlib_version' has different size in shared object,
consider re-linking
[1] 8749
eric@eric-xastir-tablet:~$ pskmail

PSKMAIL puts fldigi in transmit mode and sends this message
MULTIPSK-OFF.  It does not change it to PSK250 as my set up in PSKMAIL is set.

Somehow I missed something and hoepfully someone can shed some light on making 
this work.

Thank You
