Re: Logbook Plugin

I'm trying the latest beta on Windows. I was wondering if the current logbook plugin will become available again. Is so, any ideas on when will be availble?

Thanks!

Re: Logbook Plugin

Ray and others...
1) the new plugins demand a new version of plugin API introduced in 2.4, so they don't work with 2.3.1 by design
2) there was an incompatible change in the API in the latest 2.4.506 beta, so the plugins have to be recompiled to work properly. Logbook still wasn't.
Said that, don't use the logbook plugin now unless you are able to build it from source yourself...

Pavel

Re: Logbook Plugin

Thanks Pavel, I tried 2.4.506 beta and although it did show up in the plug-ins tab the program kept crashing.

In your opinion am I better off sticking with 2.3.1 for the time being until the beta and plug-ins are sorted or perservere with 2.4.506 beta?

Thanks again
Ray

Re: Logbook Plugin

Ray,
yes the plugin needs to be recompiled to work with 2.4.506.
Which version to use depends on how adventurous you are. Betas are for testing, therefore they can (and sometimes are) broken. If you need a stable and well tested environment, stay with 2.3.1, if you want to help us testing, use the beta.

Pavel

Is there anything which needed to be changed to compile a working version for 2.4.506?

Re: Logbook Plugin

Gunther...
cd to your source tree
add the remote repository:
Code:
git remote add opencpngithub git://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN.git
Fetch the contents of the repository
Code:
git fetch opencpngithub
Switch to the right branch
Code:
git checkout opencpngithub/Logbook
Merge with upstream (I suppose the SF repository is named origin, to check do git branch -a)
Code:
git merge origin/master
I hope there will be no conflicts, didn't build logbook with the latest code myself...
Build like normally
Code:
cd build
cmake ..
cmake --build . --target logbook_pi --config release
the dll will be in build\plugins\logbook_pi\Release

Later you don't have to add the remote repo again, just fetch, merge etc.

Same process for any other code repositories like mine, balp's, patrick's etc. if you want some of our code...

Git docs at https://git.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/GitDocumentation

Re: Logbook Plugin

Pavel,

many thanks for your detailed description. I am using the GIT Extension for Windows (integrates in Explorer's context menu).
I don't know exactly how I managed things but in the end I got a new 'logbook_pi.dll' which is at least working with my (official) version of 2.4.506!

So here it is: http://opencpn.de/sites/default/file...logbook_pi.dll

Thanks
Gunther

Still no crash for me (at home, hence not sailing!), updating every minute; waiting... (506; Vista)

Pavel
would this first one work for Ray on 2.3.1? and earlier versions of other plugins?

might be worth a try just to see it go after all the work!

Re: Logbook Plugin

Hi all,

Re: Logbook Plugin

So you can't use the new plugins with 2.3.1, and neither with the latest beta version, right? So how are people able to use them at all - I am clearly missing something.

Chris
