My apologies for not replying sooner. In truth I have been pulling my hair out with this problem so much that I have pretty much given up on this, which is sad because I hate giving up on things. Also I'd like this to work for other people so I hope that my perseverance is not in vain.
Unfortunately after installing cmake as instructed I STILL have the same problem. OpenCPN
appears to have loaded, it installs something in the menu but it just doesn't run.
What I find strange is that on the download page it says there is a 32 bit version for Ubuntu Linux
but a 64 bit version for Ubuntu 10.10. Am I to assume that this does not exist for a 32 bit version of Ubuntu 10.10 yet?
I have tried this on two machines running Ubuntu 10.10 and it does not work on either. I am about to try this on a third 32bit version this afternoon but I don't hold out much hope.
Could someone give me the low-down on what the deal is here, please? Otherwise it looks like I'm going to have to install Windows XP on VirtualBox and just run Maxsea
