Re: Integration with QtVlm - Data files and Import/Export

Compiles without a hitch...make install fails with the following both as user and sudo.

--------------------
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/chris123/sandbox/trunk/src'
mkdir -p ~/qtVlm
cp -Rf qtVlm tr/ ~/qtVlm
cd ../base_dir/
/bin/sh: 1: cd: can't cd to ../base_dir/
make: *** [install] Error 2
chris123@odin:~/sandbox/trunk$
--------------eof--------

Suggestions?

Then you can create a box covering the entire sailing area holding down the right key of your mouse and moving it till the area is covered. Then goto the gribfile area and download the grib for the indicated area.

Click the Routings/create a routing and OK - the route will start creating before your very eyes magically.

To transfer the route or track data to OCPN,right click the route so the line increases itīs with and select copy route to kml.

Switch over to OCPN displaying the same area and right click either paste Route or paste Track. (or both) Your optimized route is now showing on your map.

Use the Route/Track Properties window (right clik the route) to view all details.

Hope this is helpful.

Thanks Sinbad, this got me started.

I would a couple of additional hints for useability:

1. When creating a routing check the Convert to Route box.
2. Then go to Route>Edit Route, select the route that you just created and check the simplify box(upper right) and OK This will remove lots of unnecessary way points. After pasting into Opencpn you may want to remove more.
3. I really like the Route>Route Details screen. It shows the detail of each leg including whether the motor is running or not.
4. After creating a route, you can view the wind conditions at any point/time along the route by pressing the right arrow in the tool bar (which advances the GRIB time). A small square will appear at your location for that time.

In order to use make install you need the full svn tree which includes base_dir branch and trunk

OK...it needs a bit of cleaning up but I got it to work. Changed "base_dir" to trunk. Complained a lot about access but ran ./qtVLM anyways...then it complains about no maps but you can download them. Cool feature. 106megs of maps later requires a restart and again no maps so point it to maps folder and voila she is live.

Now to grab a polar and test this baby out. Perhaps some explanations in the readme on the install script as to what it requires would be helpful for neophites like myself.

So...on Ubuntu 12.04 she compiles fine and lives in /home/chris123/sandbox/trunk for now.

Best regards and thanks

Re: Integration with QtVlm - Data files and Import/Export

Looking for a sample polar that I can test on linux qtVLM. Anyone care to share a working polar so I dont have to go through that learning exercise as well. You can send it to me on list or sailias_at_gmx_dot_com

Best and thanks.

The "cd ../base_dir" is executed in a sub shell and therefore has no lasting effect. One solution is to join this line with the next using &&

Re: Integration with QtVlm - Data files and Import/Export

Normally you have around 12 polars coming with qtVlm as an example. Just go boat->settings and choose one. If your polar folder is empty that's not normal just tell us.

Re: Integration with QtVlm - Data files and Import/Export

Is there a reasonable way to move Marks from Opencpn to qtVim?

There are no sample polars provided in trunk from svn. Took them from my wine install from the .exe version.

Re: Integration with QtVlm - Data files and Import/Export

There are polars, I just checked. If you read the README that comes with trunk, you will see that you need to take also base_dir from the repository. That contains necessary files including polar samples.

And I think this is also why your make install didn't work. Can you try the make-install once more with the base_dir directory included?

Re: Integration with QtVlm - Data files and Import/Export

https://qtvlm.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/qtvlm/

This is the base directory, where important sub-folders are base_dir and of course trunk.

Assuming that you want to transfer Marks that do not belong to a track or a route, it is not possible (yet?)

Only way is to include them in a track or a route in O, then copy/paste the track to qtVlm, then delete the route in qtVlm (there is an option to delete the route but to keep the marks).
