OpenCPN on Jolicloud?

I just installed Jolicloud, a neat Linux/Debian/Ubuntu variant optimized for netbooks. I downloaded the OpenCPN .deb and loaded the package and all seemed to go fine. When I click on the OpenCPN icon a message pops up saying "loading" then goes away but no OpenCPN seems to be running. Any suggestions?

PS Jolicloud auto installs under windows for a dual boot. Total install including download about 1/2 hour.

Find a command line and write, "opencpn" and hit the return button.
Do you get any messages back?

here's the error message

Thomas: Thanks for the response! Here is the message I get when I use terminal as you suggested:


opencpn: error while loading shared libraries: libwx_gtk2u_core-2.8.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

What does that mean?

It means that there is a packet missing, that you have to install.
I don't know much about Jolicloud, but as it is debian based I can guess

Try this first
Quote:
sudo apt-get install libwxgtk2.8-0
If that does not work, try to down load a libwxgtk2.8-0 deb package from the Internet, here for example: Ubuntu -- Package Download Selection -- libwxgtk2.8-0_2.8.10.1-0ubuntu1_i386.deb

And then
Quote:
sudo dpkg -i download/libwxgtk2.8-0_2.8.10.1-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
if you for example downloaded to the "download" directory in your home folder, or generally use the full PATH to the package.

Try OpenCPN again.
Good Luck!

Thomas
