OpenCPN, Linux, Web site opencpn.org, user manual and manual wiki ...

Dave hello, hello Pavel hello Thomas,

I had never written linux explanations in the French website "opencpn.shoreline.fr".
It happens that I have at my disposal a old PC permanently out of use for Windows. Rather than replacing Windows with Windows, and since we had to reformat the hard drive, I preferred to install a Linux distribution.

The size of the Suze Linux version is 4.7 GB, and that of Navigatrix is ​​2.5 GB. Finally being I chose Ubuntu 14.04 32-bit version, because I was only 1GB to download. (Currently I have a bad internet connection but after all, much more than I should be confronted with a similar situation.).

Now, I try to install OpenCPN on this PC. This is the first time I've done that. I looked on the website opencpnorg, nothing to do, is incomprehensible.
It's too complicated. And there are too many references from one page to another. Too many mixtures of the explanations for the various Linux distributions.

Is it possible to write a detailed page for each distribution site "opencpn.org"?
Until this is done (if done one day ...), can you tell me where to find a version for Ubuntu 14.04? (and easy explanations for installation)

Thank you in advance. Best regards, Gilletarom.

From the command line

Open a Terminal and enter the following commands:

Code:
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
Code:
 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:opencpn/opencpn
Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install opencpn
Installing plugins:

sudo apt-get install opencpn-plugin-<PLUGIN_NAME>
where <PLUGIN_NAME> is the name of the plugin, for example to install the WMM plugin, the complete commad will be:

Code:
sudo apt-get install opencpn-plugin-wmm
Installing GPS using GPSD:

Install the gpsd and gpsd-clients package
Code:
sudo apt-get install gpsd gpsd-clients
All above from the opencpn manual,,,

Gilletarom...
1) Don't mix stuff together.
2) I can't help you if all the information you give me is "Not OK", sorry.
3) If you read the error you get, you somehow managed to aggregate an erroneous PPA (https://launchpad.net/nohal/opencpn/ubuntu), I wonder how as it is not mentioned in either of the instructions.

Pavel

Where is really the binary package ?
Try to remove Noahl s repository for now:

Code:
 sudo mousepad /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nohal-opencpn-trusty.list.save
Comment out the repository by ensuring the file reads:

Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/nohal/opencpn/ubuntu trusty main
# deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/nohal/opencpn/ubuntu trusty main
the save and quit.

and:
Code:
 sudo mousepad /etc/apt/sources.list.d/nohal-opencpn-trusty.list
Comment out the repository by ensuring the file reads:

Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/nohal/opencpn/ubuntu trusty main
# deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/nohal/opencpn/ubuntu trusty main
then save and quit.
Now:
Code:
sudo apt-get update
and
Code:
sudo apt-get install opencpn
Some of the errors gone ??

Re: OpenCPN, Linux, Web site opencpn.org, user manual and manual wiki ...

Hello Pavel

Today, I searched and found this page: opencpn - Documentation Ubuntu Francophone

This is the page that explains how to install French OpenCPN in Ub untu-fr.org website

I followed the instructions. I got the same result as yesterday. It lacks a "IMPORTANT" file or folder in launchpad.net!

The missing file or folder is the same as I posted yesterday.

It should be in available here: https://launchpad.net/nohal/opencpn/...-i386/Packages

See attachment in which I copied, down, all Linux terminal lines. This should allow you to understand.

Best regards

Gilletarom.

Gilletarom...
You at some point tried to use the beta PPA and did it wrong. Get rid of it somehow and you will have no problem.

Re: OpenCPN, Linux, Web site opencpn.org, user manual and manual wiki ...

Hello Pavel

Thank you for this information. But, frankly, I have not tried to use the beta version ... This is the first time I use Linux. And I do not understand much about all these lines ...

At what place this has happened? Is it here :
" Plus d’info : https://launchpad.net/~opencpn/+archive/ubuntu/opencpn
Appuyez sur [ENTRÉE] pour continuer ou Ctrl-C pour annuler l’ajout
"
when it ask me to make "Return" or "Ctrl C" ?

Gilletarom.

I really don't know how you managed to add a wrong address for the beta PPA there.
Look into the software sources and under /etc/apt to remove the wrong entry which contains "nohal"

Pavel

Under ubuntu, the location for extra repositories is:

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and not /etc/apt/ as stated in my post above.

Or /etc/apt/sources.list, I really don't know where he put it and how, that's why he has to check "under /etc/apt/"
