Konni's FindIt plug in link

The windows link appears to be a repeat of his Logbook. Anyone have the right linky?

Keith...
It is the right link. Just download FindIt-Setup1_0.exe (The last file in the list)

All,

I have updated the FindIt plugin from Konni and it is now available from the
OpenCPN plugin download page for Windows and OSX.
For linux version it is available on PPA.

Re: Konni's FindIt plug in link

Is FindIt still available?

I've installed the PPA for OpenCpn (Ubuntu 16.0.4) and installed OC and Konni's logbook. I've ran the apt-get update but when I run sudo apt-get install opencpn-plugin-findit , the system shows that there is no such file or directory.

I've installed the Celestial Navigation from the plugins with no issues. I've gone into the options tab to see if by some chance it installed and just needs me to enable it but it's not there.

Thanks,

Frank

Frank, it is available along with Logbook_konni and has been updated by ptulp, dowe and others for Mac as well. I believe you should be able to install it.

Re: Konni's FindIt plug in link

Nope.

Originally I was getting an error stating that the package is not available. Updated and upgraded and now I get

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
opencpn-plugin-findit : Depends: libwxbase2.8-0 (>= 2.8.12.1+dfsg2) but it is not installable
Depends: libwxgtk2.8-0 (>= 2.8.12.1+dfsg2) but it is not installable
Depends: wx2.8-i18n but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

So I ran sudo apt-get install -f to try to fix any broken packages. I got this,

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

So I tried to install one of the packages needed and got this,

sudo apt-get install libwxgtk2.8-0

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package libwxgtk2.8-0 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'libwxgtk2.8-0' has no installation candidate

The logbook-konni plugin installed with no issues whatsoever. This thing is being a royal PITA.

<rant>I'm new to Ubuntu after having Windows 10 crash repeatedly but I'm almost ready to switch back. I've spent days learning how to do simple things like creating directories and files and figuring out how to gain access to my directories that have been locked by the root account.

Maybe while I'm cruising out under the tropical sun, I can play with this sort of thing but right now I need an OS that works so I can actually get some work done with the installed programs</rant>

Re: Konni's FindIt plug in link

The plugin is currently not working on recent Ubuntu versions. It will fix itself when I submit a new build to Launchpad. On the list, but no date I can promise.

Re: Konni's FindIt plug in link

Thanks Pavel. It's a convenience thing not a necessity so, when you are able.

Thanks also for proving to me that I'm not totally incompetent ( it was touch and go there for a bit) in Linux.
