Hasan...
Please have a look at https://github.com/nohal/gecomapi_pi...aster/po/tr.po - if it's not the latest version of the GE plugin localization, please send it to me.
The problem with plugins not included in the default distribution is that you have to currently install the translations manually as well. As github deprecated the binary files downloads two weeks ago, some changes will become necessary anyway, so I will try to make it less confusing for the future, perhaps reusing the installer stuff Konni did for his logbook...

Merry Christmas to everybody from sunny Puerto Natales

I'm lost in the details. But cannot make it fail.

Do you have a repeatable failure scenario?
If so, please show the exact commands that you use to "set up" the bu353 before starting O.

Thanks

Dave
Testing this again.
1 Reinstall gpsd
2 Make gpsd connection available.
3 Plug in Bu 353. Gpsd now changes Bu353 to Sirf mode as a part of identifying the gps.
4 Gps now works fine in O.
5 Run
Code:
sudo gpsctl -f -n  /dev/ttyUSB0
I get this response
Code:
gpsctl:SHOUT: vendor/product match with 091e:0003 not found
gpsctl:SHOUT: /dev/ttyUSB0 identified as a SiRF binary at 4800.
gpsctl:SHOUT: switching to mode NMEA.
6 sudo killall gpsd
7 uninstall gpsd
8

Notice the garbage on the first line. I think that this was the problem with the last test. This time however, everything works fine, probably due to the master patch, that ignores lines not starting with "!" or "$".
No more problems, fingers crossed etc.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1220 Released

In spirit of this thread ,I've loaded Ubuntu 12.10 onto my Acer Aspire one 722, and have it running OK.
Downloaded Linux drivers for Prolific GPS USB Dongle GT-730F. After a bit of a struggle I got it to communicate with port ttyUSB0 verified with dmseg. Downloaded and got opencpn running from Terminal (Can I get an icon to do this in a more sophisticated way?)m maps loaded and communication with port ttyUSB0 set at 4800. No GPS stream. Anyone else having this problem? I've gone this route because info. I read indicated it was the best way to multiplex the GPS data stream for use with VHF-DSC,auto-pilot etc. Suggestions would be so welcome. Merry Christmas All.

Welcome to OpenCPN!

Get rid of the Linux driver you installed, it belongs in a museum!
The appropriate driver is already included in Linux. The Linux note for your driver actually say so.....

Do you have gpsd installed? In that case use gpsd insted of /dev/ttyUSB0 for connection.

Can you please attach your opencpn.log here? It's in your home directory.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1220 Released

Disconnecting an active serial port causes opencpn to go into a loop. Restarting is the only fix.

Cagney,

I'll reply, although we already have a new beta now ...
I think that's a line wrap from the line above (window not wide enough) .
The whole text should be "SART, Active"

Hi Jean-Pierre,
Please excuse my jumping into this thread, but could you explain a little by what you mean by this? I might be having a similar problem, that is when Ubuntu 12.04 boots the USB gps puck often is assigned to a different device number. It requires that I go into setup and exit and restart, a slight annoyance and delay for the day's journey.

If you are able to instruct Linux to keep the gps device on the same port for each boot, that tweak would really help a lot. Is so, could you explain a little, and maybe point me in the right direction.

Thanks,

David

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1220 Released

Hi dave777,

Only one thing more : if you have several and identical usb/serial interfaces, you will have a problem. Except if they have a "ATTRS{serial}=="xxxxx" to use, like some Belkin. But with Prolific and a lot of them, no serial.
I have found that in this case, the first answer, but I have not tried :

udev - How to distinguish between identical USB-to-serial adapters? - Ask Ubuntu

The best is to buy different brands : Prolific, Belkin, FDTI...

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 3.1.1220 Released

No, never try them. I imagine they have serials, like Belkin. I have bought a lot of interfaces in Hong-Kong for quite nothing, they are working very well, and now I must finish them...
But If I need one different I will remember Keyspan.

Thanks

Hi Pavel,
Sorry for the delayed response. This was the latest translation, not necessary for a new one. Happy new year
