Since some times I have problems with Opencpn. I don't remember with what version they begun but I get them with 4.2. I don't know how to get older versions to try them.
Opencpn is running with LinuxMint 17.
First when I launch Opencpn it is frozen. The screen
is frozen. I must wait about 30 s before I can do anything.
Secondly, after the 30 s, the GPS/AIS is not recognized at the first time. The connexion is good, settings are good. I have to close Opencpn and then open it again,wait 30 s again and then GPS/AIS is recognized automatically.
Third thing, when the mouse pointer, for a reason or an other, change for the waiting pointer (circle with some points running in it), it never come back to the arrow and I keep the waiting pointer.
Except that it seems to work fine (i haven't test all...), but it isn't easy to work with the waiting pointer, a little to much big...
I had installed Opencpn by compiling it. So I have tried to uninstall all files in "install_manifest.txt" and then a search for "opencpn" and each time I have deleted the repertory ".opencpn". Like that nothing remains from Opencpn. Then I have installed it from Synaptic (trusty). I just put the charts
, without changing any other settings and it is the same.
I don't think that the problems come from Opencpn, not sure, but I cannot fix them and I need some help. Thanks for that.
I don't get Internet
all the time, sometimes I must wait for 3/5 days to get it. Don't be surprised if I don't answer quickly if you try to help me.
