Re: OpenCPN on Raspberry Pi2

Got my pi3 up and running with opencpn. Had to use the kingsailtide setup instructions rather than the agurney pi chart setup as I couldn't get some of the dependencies to load.
The onboard wifi setup is very straightforward but can't find any gui setup for the onboard Bluetooth but in terminal I can see its MAC address and status.

Regards
Ab

Have you tried the Openplotter image? Everything on there already.

Re: OpenCPN on Raspberry Pi2

Running only the OpenPlotter items including wireless. With OpenCPN closed, the processor switches from 5 to 13 % load.

OpenCPN on Raspberry Pi2

Hi I didn't use the image as it is focuses on a Pi 2 and I wasn't sure if there are any differences in the rasbian OS to cater for the onboard wifi and Bluetooth. I think I will give it a go once a new image that has been tested on the pi 3 is available.
I guess opencpn 4.0 will do for now.
Regards

Same image, there aren't any specific pi3 raspbian images available. I just swapped the sd card from a 2 into a 3 and everything worked straight away, just faster openplotter is well worth checking out, creating a wifi a access point is simple, then you can view boat data with any wifi device which has a Web browser

OpenCPN on Raspberry Pi2

Ok will give it a go, have you worked out how to setup or pair Bluetooth using the gui interface, the wifi setup was very easy.
It would be nice if a sonos app was available.
Must admit I just use the raymarine apps to view boat data, it's very simple and quick to have a quick look at the radar/AIS from my bunk!

I haven't got bluetooth to pair yet, my fridge thermostat is an arduino with bluetooth but the Pi didn't see it, though I haven't dug any deeper, just had a quick look. There's such a big online pi community if there is a bug if it isn't fixed already it will be soon.

Re: OpenCPN on Raspberry Pi2

It's the libwxgtk3.0-dev. Dependencies that I can't find on GitHub, same problem as others earlier in this thread

This doesn't work

sudo apt-get -y install cmake gettext \
gpsd gpsd-clients libgps-dev wx-common \
libwxgtk3.0-dev libgtk2.0-dev \
wx3.0-headers libbz2-dev libtinyxml-dev \
portaudio19-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libcairo2-dev

$ sudo dpkg -i opencpn_4.2.0-1_armhf_full.deb

This works.

sudo apt-get install libwxgtk2.8-0 libglu1-mesa libtinyxml2.6.2 libwxbase2.8.0 libportaudio2 libjack-jackd2-0 wx2.8-i18n

sudo dpkg -i opencpn_4.0.0-1_armhf_tides_map.deb


Maybe I should try the working dependencies with opencpn 4.2.0-1

Re: OpenCPN on Raspberry Pi2

Try
Hcitool scan

Found my phone




On my pi2 I basically used the instructions below, all nice and simple, maybe I still need to install the the:

sudo apt-get install bluetooth bluez-utils blueman bluez python-gobject python-gobject-2

to get the Bluetooth gui.

Re: OpenCPN on Raspberry Pi2

As soon as I get my RPI 3 I will release a full OpenPlotter RPI 2/3 compatible

I've not really dug very deep yet but so far no differences are noticable.

There's a good deal of info in the latest MagPi..
https://www.raspberrypi.org/magpi-issues/MagPi43.pdf

It looks like for the time being only 32-bit raspbian will be available..

From and interview with Eban Upton:

“Although it is a 64‑bit
core, we’re using it as just a faster
32-bit core,” he reveals about
the Pi 3’s central processing unit.
“I can imagine there’d be some
real benefits [to 64-bit code].
The downside is that you do
really create a separate world. To
access that benefit, you’d have to
have two operating systems. I’m
hoping that someone will come
and demonstrate to me that this
is a good idea

Re: OpenCPN on Raspberry Pi2

Thanks Sailoog, I am just downloading v6 of your image but it could take a while, with my super slow broadband.

Re: OpenCPN on Raspberry Pi2

Yes I will install pi Bluetooth, seems strange it wasn't included on the latest noobs.

If you are downloading from torrent, FYI you are leeching from a Raspberry 1 that has been seeding for a month non stop close to 1TB

There is always a job for your old Raspberries
