[aprssig] OT Soundmodem packet program

Hi All:

I have xastir running really well with soundmodem on linux.  I'd like to 
also find a packet terminal program so users could use the same config 
and use regular ax25 packet systems.  I have avoided the ax25 tools 
since that makes another ifconfig device and seems like more confusion 
than needed, where xastir can use the simple KISS device that stays 
clear of the tcp/ip stack.

The problem is, I don't know of any packet terminal software (ui or gui) 
for contemporary linux's!

I know I could build jnos, but that in itself is extremely complicated 
for the average user. . .

I had some tips from the debian-ham group, but all of those leads failed 
to pan out for one reason or other.

So is there a linux terminal program that can use the KISS device and 
run on later distros of Ubuntu/Mint?

Thank you



wishing you well
