I compiled 1705 on a virtual XUbuntu 11.10, available here http://opencpn.org/ocpn/downloads/be...705-3_i386.deb
This package installed on 12.04 software center without any problems at all.
So, a lot of problems seems to be caused by compiling on 12.04.
It runs fine as well on 12.04 except for gps
. There is a conflict between using libgps19 for compiling and libgps20 for running.
gpsd is backward compatible, then
this is an OpenCPN problem.
If you only uses gps
for OpenCPN there is no need for gpsd.
Direct connection to /dev/ttyUSB0 was refused. The problem here, was that a normal user did not belong to the "dialout" group in my XUbuntu 12.04 installation
. I have never had that problem with (K)Ubuntu, or at least it was a long time ago.
I'm using BU353, and switching to direct connection also means that the mode must be switched from "sirf" to "Nmea" on the gps. This is slightly more complicated now, when gpsd is auto started on USB connection.
