Newbie Help Please?

Hello
Only just started SERIOUSLY using OPENCPN. It's brilliant but I often have port issues with WindowsXP.

I've just downloaded and REALLY like Linux Mint. Is it possible to run OpenCPN with it?

PS COMPLETELY new to Linux!!!!

Mint is just another Debian/Ubuntu rehash. You should be able to use the Ubuntu packages.

Thank for that - next stupid question then, is... Although I have no probs downloading the Windows installers for OCPN, I don't seem able to download any of the Linux versions. Tried IE, Firefox and Chrome. Only ever gets to about 6%

What am i doing wrong?

Try a different SourceForge mirror. There's a link for that near the top of the page.
