Re: OpenCPN for Mac

The good news: I managed to compile recent src (from git) using XCode.
Bad news: No toolbar visible...

any hints, someone?

Re: OpenCPN for Mac

Luke....

Good work.

Did you create the xcode project from CMake, or did you "hand-craft" an xcode project?

Could you post a link to your xcode project?

I would really like to get CMake script up to speed so that it generates a usable xcode project.....

Thanks
Dave

Re: OpenCPN for Mac

I based it on the 2.3.1 XCode-Package. It's not really clean work - based on the fact that I'm new to XCode. I replaced src and include folders, created version.h manually and added gps.h to the include-folder (as it's needed if compiled for libgps). I also changed call of libgps.so to libgps.dylib and added recent libgps.20 version changes, but this is still broken code.
I managed to get the toolbar in front (wxSTAY_ON_TOP) - it's visible but doesn't behave properly on mouse-actions and it's also on top of dialogs...

Download will be at http://www.friedensflotte.org/luke/O...3.1-Source.zip (available in aprox. 20 min).
Easiest way to use it is to unpack it to /Volumes/Data/
(so all file names and path's will be ok in XCode). Although it's still named 2.3.1, sources are from current git!

Re: OpenCPN for Mac

Luke, et al...

OCPN Version 2.4.612.

I can build a working Xcode project by:

Code:
cmake -G Xcode ..
It builds and runs with no tweaks to the source code.

Also builds and runs OK with simple

Code:
cmake ..
I am running on Leopard 10.5 inside a VMware virtual, using linux host. Verrrrrry slow, so I have a hard time really exercising the code. But it does come up, and the basic dialogs and chart display work.

How are you making out? What is your environment?

Dave

Luke....

2.4.612.

Toolbar does not move. We need to debug the Grabber bar mouse events.

also right-click wasn't captured properly (for OS X).
I fixed this and added bug report #525 including code changes:
FS#525 : Toolbar not moveable on OS X

Re: OpenCPN for Mac

Hi there...

OpenCPN Beta 2.4.620 has been released. It builds and runs on Mac OSX.

Use the normal cmake .. and make commands to build it.

It has several known problems:

1. International languages don't work.
2. Plugins don't work.
3. wxWidgets libs are not in the release package .dmg

These problems are related. We need a CMake/OSX guru to tweak the CMake files to get the PlugIns and the Language files into the application bundle. We also need to get the wxWidgets libraries into the bundle, and have them link up correctly.

4. Also, please note that GPS input has not been tested. I don't have the right hardware.....

I worked on this a while, but I guess I just don't "think different" enough. Any help will be appreciated.

Meanwhile, testing of the basic UI is possible without a complete package build. Please do so, if you can, and report results here and on Flyspray.

Thanks to "luke austria" for the testing and code already integrated. More, more....

Good luck
Dave

To build under Snow Leopard I had to make a few minor changes.

Re: OpenCPN for Mac

Ahoy Mac users!

OpenCPN Version 2.4 Beta Build 628 is available now on sourceforge git repo.
The .dmg Package will soon be available on the opencpn.org download page.

This build brings the OSX(Carbon) Beta up to full parity with the Windows and Linux builds.

Untested issues:
a. Serial NMEA input, usually by USB dongle.
b. AIS

Known or suspected bugs:
a. Locale changes occasionally cause a crash on App exit, at least on my hardware.

Building:
I had a lot of trouble with the CMake/CPack interface to PackageMaker.
I finally gave up and rolled my own.
Volunteers are encouraged to have a look at this toolchain, and try to figure out a clean build procedure using only CMake/CPack tools.

To build from this release:

1. get this stuff
xcode312_2621_developerdvd.dmg (this gets the compilers, etc.)
MacPorts-1.9.2-10.5-Leopard.dmg (this gets macPorts)

2. sudo port install wxwidgets
3. sudo port install glib2

4. Build OpenCPN
$cd {opencpn}
$mkdir build_carbon
$cd build_carbon
$cmake -DPREFIX=/Users/{user}/tmp ..
$make
$make install
$make create-dmg

This will give you a portable .dmg file with the required libraries and basic PlugIns embedded in the app bundle.
Open the Package and drag the OpenCPN icon to the dock. Away you go!

Also, please test the .dmg on the opencpn.org download page. This .dmg was built by me, and I want to be sure that the build workflow creates a really portable download....

Good Luck, and enjoy the Beta Testing!

Thanks
Dave

Re: OpenCPN for Mac

Hello,

Some observations for Build 628 on MacBook Pro with OSX 10.6.7

Program, chart library, gps, and Dashboard loaded and set up normally.

USB gps NMEA input works.

Toolbar:

Does not respond to mouseover if the main OCPN window has focus i.e. the toolbar only un-dims if it already has focus.

Shows over other applications when they have focus.

Occasionally does not un-dim when clicked near the grab handle.

Does not move away from the Dashboard if parked near the top left of the screen when the Dashboard is turned on.


Chart Quilting:

Using CHS Raster Chart 3000 (British Columbia, Canada). Pan so that an edge of the chart is being moved across the display window - a band of the chart will be redrawn each time the chart is panned. This is most visible when using the cursor keys to pan but also occurs when clicking with the mouse or zooming out past the edge of the last chart.


Main Menu:

Shows only the OpenCPN menu. Version 2.3.1 showed OpenCPN, Window, and Help or something similar.


Thanks for this nicely designed program!

George

Re: OpenCPN for Mac

Now it's down to CPack errors, as i see it.

CPack: Compress package
CPack Error: Bad file extension specified: . Currently only .rtfd, .rtf, .html, and .txt files allowed.
CPack Error: Problem copying the resource files
CPack Error: Problem compressing the directory
CPack Error: Error when generating package: OpenCPN
make: *** [package] Error 1
Build step 'Execute shell' marked build as failure
Archiving artifacts
Finished: FAILURE

I try to see if i can get time to look into it, going on vacations startsing today, laptop on my boat, but most of then time i like a working vertsion so i might mostly run the Linux version.
