Depending on drivers and especially the available memory there can be differences in speed indeed.

Ivanm...
First things first - Did you relogin to your system so that your session actually reflects the changes?

Re: Help / FAQ

OK, open a terminal, install setserial using
Code:
sudo apt-get install setserial
and post the output of
Code:
sudo setserial -g /dev/tty*S*
Are you sure you don't have gpsd installed and set to automatically acquire the GPS? when you plug the device in and run
Code:
dmesg
does the output end with a few messages talking about it?

Re: Help / FAQ

I went to sea and used O Cpn with AIS, after I changed to Ubuntu, had a few freezes in Windows. The mate loved it (me as well) and in the 4 days never freezed once, no problem whatsoever, thanks to the guys who made this available and keep O Cpn running.
All that I have to sort out is to get my Olex marks on Open Cpn sure will find something soon

Found this:
http://www.oceandtm.com/Olex_Convert_GoogleEarth.pdf

and then you can use GPSbabel to covert from KML to GPX, which you can import using the Route Manger.

Good luck!

The grib plugin is distributed as part of the main OpenCPN package, no additional download is needed.

Re: Help / FAQ

I made a file in home/$USER/.opencpn/UserIcons for Linux as in the manual but cant see the png files in opencpn to change the icon for marks maybe i did something wrong, in windows there is no problem. It is the same place that holds the conf file and navobj files
