Opencpn does not work on Kubuntu/Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS

I installed opencpn 4.8.0, following all the steps in the manual, adding the PPA repository, then doing the update then the opencpn install etc.
Everything seemed to work correctly, but when I try to run it, it fails to launch.

Launching from the command line I get the following error:

opencpn: error while loading shared libraries: libwx_baseu-2.8.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

So it seems to me a library is missing (or a symbolic link pointing to a lib with a different name maybe?)

Anyway, if anybody can help me I would appreciate it.

John

John...
It seems you have not installed a version built for Xenial, it would be linked correctly agains wxGTK3.

Can you post the output of
Code:
apt list|grep opencpn
?

Re: Opencpn does not work on Kubuntu/Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS

You have a lot of plugins. Can you first install OpenCPN with only the default plugins before adding all the others? Add plugins one at a time to see which one causes trouble.

Re: Opencpn does not work on Kubuntu/Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS

Hi Pavel,

/usr/local/bin/opencpn

Ok, that's the problem, my path looks at /usr/local/bin/ before it looks at /usr/bin/ and there is an old opencpn from 2013 by the time stamp that I must have installed way back then, and the new one is in /usr/bin/.

Thanks, I renamed this old version opencpn.old and now it's working.

Now I can start converting all my ozyExplorer charts to the openCpn format

Thanks Pavel,

Cheers,

John
