Good question Bob, that would apply to watchdog_pi too.
Since the included plugins WMM, ChartDownloader, Dashboard, Grib are installed with OpenCPN
, they are most likely installed properly, but it is worthwhile to check, particularly if the opencpn
.log file does not find and list them.
In moving from 4.0 or 4.1 to 4.2, at a certain point after many many tests of plugins, I was having trouble and simply renamed my opencpn.ini file to opencpn.ini.old and let opencpn make a new one. That really helped. Then In copied my chart setttings from the old version and made the other changes under Options.
I always had my old opencpn.ini.old file to go back to, once I had figured out what was wrong. I think if I was Evans, I would check for plugin location. Then rename opencpn.ini and start O to see what happens. Then go back to the old opencpn.ini depending on what I find out.
