Wink OpenCPN on Ubuntu ARM Notebooks

Hi. I purchased a new ARM Chromebook and installed Ubuntu ARM version on the Chromebook so I could install OpenCPN.

Has anyone compiled a version of the OpenCPN for Ubuntu ARM OS version 12.04 ?

When I tried to install from Downloads error said "i386 version", then I realised it was not going to install.

If anyone could compile for ARM Ubuntu I would be most grateful, as I do not know how to do that.

I have OpenCPN on Windows, but was looking for a small low-powered device such as the new ARM Chromebook for my boat. Sure others will be in similar boat.

Many thanks.

Re: OpenCPN on Ubuntu ARM Notebooks

I loaded Ubuntu on my Asus Chromebook and then followed the instructions in the OpenCPN user manual to install OpenCPN.

The install was apparently uneventful. When I launched the application, the program seemed to start ok, but then promptly shut down.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Bill

Re: OpenCPN on Ubuntu ARM Notebooks

You are trying to install the "i386 version".
Try
Ubuntu PPA | Official OpenCPN Homepage
and from the download page Download OpenCPN | Official OpenCPN Homepage
Quote:
For Ubuntu Linux and it's derivatives (Linux Mint) and Debian Jessie based distributions, OpenCPN is distributed from a PPA If you are not sure how to add the repository to your system, read the chapter Configuring Ubuntu PPA in the user manual.

Thanks for taking the time to reply!

I did install the Ubuntu PPA version, which seemed to go ok. When I open the application, I see the welcome screen. When I proceed from there, I see the "home" page for a second or two, and then the application shuts down.
