Maybe I am in the wrong place but folks, I am at this point so confused that don't even know where to post my question. Sorry if this is out of place.
I wish to run open cpn
in my xperia tablet z. I followed instructions in several places and managed to root the tablet and install linux
I did download the suggested viewers and not being familiar with linux
I find that I have to zoom a lot to be able to see the info presented.
I have never seen how open cpn
looks in linux - I used it in my windows machine - and I hope after install the maps look like they do using windows.
problem and the reason for this post is
1. which version of open cpn do I install in my xperia tablet? It is rooted with the linux deploy - not sure which version of linux that is.
2. is there a set of instructions that a regular computer person can follow to complete the installation?
The instructions given in "Building on Motorola Xoom" are very unclear to me and even when the instructions look like an easy thing to do, my xperia does understan them.. example
I open the terminal emulator program and it comes up
Y then type SU <enter> and the terminal displays:
I then type some of the instructions like: "... type:
/data/local/linux/bin/linuxdeploy shell and press <enter>"
I do that but the respons is that /data/local/linux/bin/linuxdeploy can't be found
The same happen when I try "... Enter the '/home' directory from within the terminal by typing: cd /home and press <enter>"
When I do that, the tablet tells me:
"tmp-mksh: cd: / home: no such file or directory"
Am I in the root and this is linux?
If some one could give me a hand with this, pointing me in a good direction... I would very much appreciate it... I really want to get open cpn working in this tablet.
I already bought the tablet so going to a windows tablet now is not an option.
