Opencpn in UBUNTU (12.04 64bit) will not Unpack

I am trying to unpack opencpn_3.2.2-1_amd64.deb into Ubuntu 12.04 (64bit) and I get the error : Cannot install 'libgl1-masa-glx' Has anyone seen this and do you know what to do?

Re: Opencpn in UBUNTU (12.04 64bit) will not unpack

This sounds sort of similar to this problem...
OCPN 3.2.0 install on Ubuntu 12.04 - dependencies

It appears that updated versions of 12.04 have installed libraries that dont conform with the original naming convention for 12.04 - this may be connected to your problem

Re: Opencpn in UBUNTU (12.04 64bit) will not unpack

Read that thread and it hurt my head. Then tried to read the link to mint and my head fell off. I'll try again when I've had some sleep. Thanks for the help.

Re: Opencpn in UBUNTU (12.04 64bit) will not unpack

ubuntu upgraded and renamed the opengl graphic library .. and the opencpn install does not recognize that. sounds like you may need to edit the install dependencies.

Re: Opencpn in UBUNTU (12.04 64bit) will not unpack

Did you try to add the lanchpad repo instead of installing it by hand?


Add line saying "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/opencpn/opencpn/ubuntu precise main" to /etc/apt/sources.list
In terminal, execute the following commands:
Code:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys C865EB40
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install opencpn

And they say people don't help others anymore! That worked a treat, everything is up and running. Thanks!!!

I forgot to use
Code:
 sudo gedit sources.list
to update the list but it took no time to get it done once I remembered that. (three years since I worked in Linex]

Re: Opencpn in UBUNTU (12.04 64bit) will not unpack

My trusty old Lenovo T43 served me well running Windows XP since 2005. Speed suddenly dropped to next to nothing and with XP out of the business I thought I finally give Ubuntu a try.
With Ubuntu 12.04 it works much faster now than ever before, I like it very much. But I am completely helpless when something doesn't work as it's supposed to.
I tried installing OpenCPN and get the same error as Don:
'Cannot install 'libgl1-masa-glx'
Since I am completely new to Linux I have no idea what you guys are talking about. I am awfully proud of myself for having figured out how to open a terminal window, but what the heck are "install dependencies" and a "launch pad repo"?
Could one of you guys point my rookie index-finger through the paces step by step?
A free ride through the beautiful North-Norwegian archipelago to the helping hand - if you ever come north of 69 deg latitude, that is.
Thanks in advance!
Walter

Re: Opencpn in UBUNTU (12.04 64bit) will not unpack

The answer to your quest is in the post above yours.

one change though: In a terminal window.
Code:
 sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
once you open that file add:
Code:
deb Index of /opencpn/opencpn/ubuntu precise main
after the last line and save the file.
next copy the following
Code:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys C865EB40
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install opencpn
and execute it in the terminal window.(you can paste it in by right clicking on the entry space.)

Re: Opencpn in UBUNTU (12.04 64bit) will not unpack

I did as you wrote, but nothing happens
I just noticed that you started the discussion with Ubuntu 12.04, 64bit. I think I installed the 32bit version, but that shouldn't make a difference?

Re: Opencpn in UBUNTU (12.04 64bit) will not Unpack

No difference between 32 and 64 bits.
What exactly can we imagine under "nothing happens"? To which of the steps posted above it refers?

Sorry, down at the pool for lunch.
Try this as the inserted line: (Take out the *)

deb http*://ppa.launchpad.net/opencpn/opencpn/ubuntu precise main

The browser shortened the name.

Re: Opencpn in UBUNTU (12.04 64bit) will not Unpack

Pavel: Step 3. I wrote

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

in the terminal window and opened the sources list, added

deb Index of /opencpn/opencpn/ubuntu precise main

at the end and saved the file. Then I copied and pasted

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys C865EB40 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install opencpn

in the terminal window and hit "return". That's when nothing happened.

I attach a pdf of the source list and a screen shot from the terminal window and from the download folder.
Thank you for taking the time!

Pavel isn't around, so I'll give this a try.

The deb line you need is
Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/nohal/opencpn/ubuntu precise main
after that do
Quote:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nohal/opencpn
then
Quote:
sudo apt-get update
and last
Quote:
sudo apt-get install opencpn
The reason why my deb line is different is that this forum steps in automatically and distorts the line unless it's marked as "CODE".

Re: Opencpn in UBUNTU (12.04 64bit) will not Unpack

Thomas, still no luck. I tried it several times from the start. I copied in the deb-line you suggested and copied in the sudo lines in the terminal window both individually and all three together. That's as far as I get.
The bad thing is that I am completely ignorant in what I am doing since this is the first time I ever touched Linux.
Any ideas? Should I delete the download file and start over again?
