I personally would love to see a integrated GNUAIS soundcard AIS input feature.
What to have included and not in the software itself will of course be a matter of opinion... so take this for what it is... just my opinion.

In our yacht we have a class B transponder and I kind of like the robustness of a dedicated AIS receiver and also the fact I can actually be seen by others on top on getting the position of other boats.

I think GNUAIS is a nice idea but that it will be comparatively few people that will do the electronic fiddling with an old VHF receiver and connecting it via a sound card. It is a nice idea but a tad to un-robust for my liking.

My vote is to put it low on the include list.

I have not tried GNUAIS but if it can be set to export the data as an NMEA string into OpenCPN then it should be no problem to use OpenCPN as it is.
If GNUAIS can not do that it would, in my opinion, be better to get GNUAIS to do it as a separate application.

It is very much the same as not including virtual instruments in OpenCPN, there are other solutions for that.

What I would like to have included in OpenCPN is configurable NMEA export sentences. I have suggested this earlier. This is needed for several different instrumentation systems to present navigation information on the instruments in the cockpit such as XTE, DTW and BTW. Different autopilots may use different sentences too, I believe.

My two pennies worth...

Hello,
I always try to make walk opencpn with debian. The last versions of libwgtk removed all the errors with starting, any walk. But opencpn still does not open the charts CM93, which however have correct permissions.
I force the rebuilding of the database, Ca does not do anything. I do not find where opencpn puts its error messages.
A council? Thank you.

opencpn.org domain expired

I tried to follow the link to Compiling in Ubuntu, but the opencpn.org domain has expired.

I run Ubuntu 9.10 x86_64 rather than i386...

You may have a search around, I'm not sure if its been compiled successfully under x64.. Unless you got beyond 4GB of ram, the performance gains on x64 are negligible anyway

Building for Ubuntu 9.10 x86-64

It's been ages since I've done any development for Linux or Unix, so I'm having a bit of a problem building opencpn for my system.

I set the environment variable
CFLAGS="-O2 -march=native", then ran ./configure, thenmake.

Here's the output:
Code:
jon@bigmax:~/builds/opencpn-1.3.6$ make

Am I missing any required development packages? Or are there errors in the wxwidgets 2.8 library?

Is this the right thread for build question? Or is it just for runtime errors and such under Ubuntu?

Got it working!

All it takes is just a little bit of reading. The fix is here.

Now I just gotta update all my RNC and ENC charts...

This bug was fixed in the CVS source code about 3 weeks after the release of 1.3.6. I assume that you used the 1.3.6 source code when compiling.

Re: OpenCPN Linux / Ubuntu Issues and Questions

My wish request is for a BSB4 plugin for Linux
