You can find 1.5.10 on  <http://www.crusefalk.se/jpskmailinstall/>
I have not had the time to check if it works with a rig yet but will do so
next week.
More reports will follow!!

Well, I haven't got jpskmail working on raspberry yet. Maybe because I
didn't find 1.5.10 jar files :D So I tried 2.0.22. Suppose I just make
something wrong... 

I have noticed about pi and fldigi, I cannot get WEFAX received as well as
with ordinary laptop,  with same usb soundcard (cheap dongle). Picture is
not as good. I think "slant" is not stable when using raspberry pi. But it
somewhat works, fun!  Also tried receiving NAVTEX, it works also. I have
received quite a lot of 518 khz NAVTEX from Mediterranean Sea here in inner
Finland with pi. 

I suppose it is some issue on usb in pi, not sure. (could also be something
simple like dirty power or ground loop...) Also soundcard gets grazy quite
often when used with pi, and gets only fuzzy gibberish on waterwall. 
By the way, It have never worked if I also have network connected, wifi or
ethernet. That is why I mostly susbect usb driver problem.

Have tested with Pskmail client 1.5.10 and fldigi on Pi B (512). So far it
works but CPU is 90%.
Will test together with the IC-7200 when i have some more time.
How to test:
From http://www.crusefalk.se/jpskmailinstall/ 
Follow instruktions for Ubuntu to install fldigi and download 1.5.10 make
jar files allowed to be executed even those in the LIB (don´t know if that
is a must)
After starting fldigi go to the jpskmail lib and open javapskmail.jar, it
will take some time to start!!
It would me very nice if anyone that has a working rig and a Pi close by
could do some test and see if it works!!
