OpenCPN Coding

I'm in an early state of an idea an I really want to code a Plugin.
As the whole project is relying on very special hardware I have to
set the first attempt building the plugin for linux only.

BUT:
I tried to compile opencpn-git - latest release with MS-VC 2008 and Eclipse on Ubuntu.

Hmm - just got a lotta errors, the first ones with the wx headers...

So PLEASE let me have a part in coding and let me download a fully working implementation for MS-VC8 or Eclipse CDT with the rquired dirs, files and project-files included...

Would prevent me bothering around for about two days...

Thanks in advance...

Did you follow the instructions at Compiling - Linux | Official OpenCPN Homepage
I'm afraid, I can't give you much more, as nothing more is needed and so I don't have it myself.
If you post the errors you get, we can perhaps help you.

Re: OpenCPN Coding

Thank you Pavel,

Though I have to spend time on building up the IDE for debugging... :-(
Well Ok no problem - thought I could have it easier.

As I said I am working on a project and we want to implement a few really powerful features...

Far to early to speak about... I will keep you informed with the first working Addon.... say in about 2-3 Month..

yrs - willi

Re: OpenCPN Coding

Hi,

Would you mind describing in a few words what you want to achieve?
So no one else start working on similar ideas in-between.
We're a few developers around, with lots of ideas but not much time ;-)
... and someday, instead of adding new features, we should also try to eradicate the stack of bugs/feature request laying down in flyspray. I know some are already working hard on this.

Regards,
Jean-Eudes

Maybe I don't get you well, but wouldn't it be as simple as
Code:
cmake -G "Eclipse CDT4 - Unix Makefiles" ..
to get you going with Eclipse CDT?

Re: OpenCPN Coding

willi...
I've just tried and it does...
What I did:
Followed the build instructions with the following change:
Code:
cmake -G "Eclipse CDT4 - Unix Makefiles" ..
instead of the normal cmake ..
Then I've read Eclipse CDT4 Generator - KitwarePublic and did the following:
  • opened Eclipse and set the workspace to the dir where I've checked out opencpn
  • Imported the created project file (build/.project) into Eclipse
  • Import project using Menu File->Import
  • Select General->Existing projects into workspace:
  • Browse where your build tree is and select the root build tree directory. Keep "Copy projects into workspace" unchecked.
  • You get a fully functional eclipse project
  • Found how to run a build from Eclipse (I have really seen more intuitive IDEs before) and built.
  • Am looking at a perfectly running OpenCPN executable
  • Now switching back to Vim and CodeBlocks as fast as I can
Hope it helps

Pavel

Hello Jean,
well yes to describe it with a few words... I want to include marine radio services like DSC/AIS audio recording of VHF messages, navtex and other services...

depends on an SDR-radio daemon I'm working on.

Thank you Pavel,
was fooling around with kubuntu 11.10 the last two days.
Thought it would be a good Idea to get OpenCPN compiled on the commandline first.

1.) problems with wxWidgets wxX11-2.8.8 and wxWidgets-2.9.X latest
configure: error development files for GTK+ and pkg-config

really tried everything... installed gtk-3-dev etc.... errors...

2.) OpenCPN cmake...
GTK2 not found but GTK3 is installed
could not find BZip2 but bzip2 is installed...
cmake-2.8/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake
cmake-2.8./Modules/FindBZip2.cmake
....
for my project I checked about 30 configurations from CentOS to Debian..
I wont have a problem to switch my platform for development purps..

Just tell me which OS and configuration you use and I will join your path...

Thank you - willi

Re: OpenCPN Coding

Just one more thing - if you will work on the Windows version, use VS2010 - the next official version of OpenCPN will be built with this toolchain, so you would have to upgrade anyway to provide binary builds.
If you for any reason need to use VS2008 for now, it should probably still more or less (apart from creating a fully working setup package) work for you and you can find the respective old revision of the build instructions at http://opencpn.org/ocpn/node/108/revisions/2194/view

sounds good,
will proceed and fetch a new .git for this...
thank you.

ubuntu/kubuntu is totally OK, I do use it every day. But you really have to follow the instructions provided to build successfully.
Code:
sudo apt-get install git-core cmake gpsd gpsd-clients  libgps-dev build-essential wx-common libwxgtk2.8-dev  libglu1-mesa-dev libgtk2.0-dev wx2.8-headers libbz2-dev libtinyxml-dev
is absolutely necessary. And no GTK-3, please.

Re: OpenCPN Coding

Ähhm - sorry - That was really a RTFM case. I do apologize... installed the packages an the build went ok.

purged all GTK-3 packages....
looks like only one remaining tiny problem...
I do need the wx headers and added an include for /usr/include/wx-2.8
which solved previous errors with wx

but now I got stuck with wx/setup.h which definitively is not there.
and on an previous attempt I got an error about myiso8211.h missing.
Tried to locate it in the include directory but it is missing too.

Though I think that it could be that the sources maybe incomplete too.

And again thank you very much for your support.

Re: OpenCPN Coding

willi...
could you post output from
Code:
sudo find / -name setup.h|grep wx
?
On my Ubuntu 11.10 system:
Code:
nohal@KNUT:~/source/OpenCPN/build$ sudo find / -name setup.h|grep wx
[sudo] password for nohal: 
/home/nohal/source/chroot/oneiric_armel/usr/lib/wx/include/base-unicode-release-2.8/wx/setup.h
/home/nohal/source/chroot/oneiric_armel/usr/lib/wx/include/gtk2-unicode-release-2.8/wx/setup.h
/usr/lib/wx/include/base-unicode-debug-2.8/wx/setup.h
/usr/lib/wx/include/base-unicode-release-2.8/wx/setup.h
/usr/lib/wx/include/gtk2-unicode-release-2.8/wx/setup.h
/usr/lib/wx/include/gtk2-unicode-debug-2.8/wx/setup.h
Those instructions really work, believe me, but you really have to follow ALL the steps they contain.

Pavel
