Quick setup instructions for OpenWebRX on Ubuntu

This is an absolute quick guide to install OpenWebRX, an SDR receiver software with a web UI. If you need more information or have a problem, please look at the GitHub page of the project.

It was originally written for Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS, but should work on the current version as well.

Is my SDR hardware supported?

Besides RTL-SDR, many other devices work with OpenWebRX (e. g. HackRF, AirSpy, SDRplay, etc.) Check the OpenWebRX wiki for more information.
