I have install Geigerlog from Ullix and have some truble. i get a mistake:
d@-Satellite-L350:~$ './geigerlog'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./geigerlog", line 91, in <module>
from gsup_utils import * # includes import of gglobs
File "./geigerlog/", line 76, in <module>
import sounddevice as sd # sound output input
File "/home/hd/.local/lib/python3.8/site-packages/", line 71, in <module>
raise OSError('PortAudio library not found')
OSError: PortAudio library not found
The solution is install sounddevice by this instruction:
sudo apt-get install libportaudio2

I am bit at a loss to understand what is going on with your setup. First you say you get the OS-error, then you seem to suggest a solution, now you say, no, you didn't, but then you are running GeigerLog anyway, which is only possible when you did overcome the error? Which is it?

If you were able to find a correction, then I'd like to know what the problem and the solution was, because I'd either fix it in the code, if it is a bug in GeigerLog (doesn't look like it) or can advise users on what to do if the problem is elsewhere.

Regarding connecting and running: please, see the manual in the chapter about the GMC counters.

WiFi is possible, however, due to a bug and deficiency in the firmware of the counter, it is not trivial to do. You need to install, run and modify an Apache server and install some php software. Again, it is all in the manual in sufficient detail to replicate, chapter "WiFi Devices managed by GeigerLog".

An easier way would actually be to ignore the build-in WiFi of your GMC-320 counter and use a Raspi as a "converter", see this post: "WiFi Enabling a GMC-300E+ Counter"

I am not sure I understand: are you just reporting an error, or are you already including the solution?

If you still have the question, I would need more details on the problem, like type of OS (looks like Linux), versions. Best is to start GeigerLog with: 'geigerlog -dvwR' and provide to me the resulting 'geigerlog.stdlog' file (find it in the data directory). You can use the GeigerLog sourceforge site under "Discussion" to post this file ( )
