OpenCPN 2.1.624 with Ubuntu 10.10

I have successfully loaded OpenCPN 2.1 on my W7 notebook. Now I am starting to build a Linux/Ubuntu system using an old Sony VAIO PCG-R505DT notebook. I am new to Ubuntu although I have some ancient Unix memories which mean I am gradually finding my way around.

Ubuntu 10.10 is running OK on my VAIO 505DT and the standard software apps work as expected but I cannot get OpenCPN 2.1 to run. I am getting the following dependency problem:
ray@ray-PCG-R505DT:~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg -i opencpn_21624.deb
Selecting previously deselected package opencpn.
(Reading database .... 119522 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking opencpn (from opencpn_21624.deb) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of opencpn:
opencpn depends on wx-common (>= 2.8.0) | libwxbase2.8-0 (>= 2.8.7.1); however:
Package wx-common is not installed.
Package libwxbase2.8-0 is not installed.
opencpn depends on wx-common (>= 2.8.0) | libwxgtk2.8-0 (>= 2.8.7.1); however:
Package wx-common is not installed.
Package libwxgtk2.8-0 is not installed.
dpkg: error processing opencpn (--install):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
opencpn

Note that I am using the deb release from OCPN, I just renamed it for easier console command usage.

OCPN needs wx-common and libwxbase2.8-0 and libwxgtk2.8-0

Can someone tell me where I can get these files and where they need to be placed in the Ubuntu system.

Thks in advance.

Both of those packages should be available as Debian packages.

Search Debian packages and then on the Debian package search page plug in the package name. It will take you right there.

even easier, use the built-in package manager (while connected to the internet):
% sudo apt-get install wx-common libwxbase2.8-0 libwxgtk2.8-0
and that will do it

Thanks to both of you. I took the tenchiki short cut and it worked a treat. It solved my problem with launching OpenCpn.

Reading charts - next fun and games when I want to read NMEA. Maybe I'll be on here again.

Great response from the forum. Tks again
Ray

tip: use "gdebi" to install the .deb instead of "dpkg -i", it will automatically round up any missing dependencies and install those for you.

Code:
$ sudo gdebi opencpn_21624.deb
