Opencpn Pi2 raspbian

Hi,

I'm new to Pi and OpenCPN. I'm quite far and can access the Pi2 (raspbian os) with an Ipad and I have OpenCPN 4.0.0 running with a USB GPS.

Now I'm ready for the next step, installing plugins.

I found several threads and sites but I can't find out how I now must install an plugin, for example the polar plugin, on the Pi2 with Raspbian + OpenCPN 4.0.0.

Please can anyone give me link to a good tutorial or the commands that I have to use?

I'm bit further. I have upgraded mine system to Jessie (cat /etc/debian_version
gives 8.0).

I'm stuck at the command cmake ../ this returns:

-- *** Staging to build polar_pi ***
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.0/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:136 (message):
Could NOT find wxWidgets (missing: wxWidgets_FOUND)

CMakeLists.txt:65 (FIND_PACKAGE)


-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
See also "/home/pi/opencpn/plugins/polar_pi/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log".

Couldn't find any solution on the web for the PI2. Any hints?

Re: Opencpn Pi2 raspbian

I'm not giving up to install the plugins.

I have updated my system to Jessie. Now i'm following the steps from "http://opencpn.org/ocpn/adding_ppa"

The first command "sudo apt-get install software-properties-common" was no problem.

The problem starts with the second command "sudo add-apt-repository ppapencpn/opencpn"

I get the following back:

Code:
pi@raspberrypi ~/opencpn/plugins/polar_pi $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:opencpn/opencpn
You are about to add the following PPA to your system:
 A Chartplotter and GPS Navigation Software.

OpenCPN is a free software (GPLv2) project to create a concise chartplotter and navigation software for use as an underway or planning tool.  OpenCPN is developed by a team of active sailors using real world conditions for program testing and refinement.

    (self.id, self.codename))

What is the right command or PPA for jessie?

Re: Opencpn Pi2 raspbian

Was not able to solve the problem. So I started all over, but now with Ubuntu installation. Everything is working now.

I followed the followings steps, some steps are referring to a site with more steps:

1. Download image from: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/RaspberryPi
2. Unzipped 2015-04-06-ubuntu-trusty.zip
3. Write image with Win32Diskimager to SDcard
4. sudo apt-get update
5. Setting up and running a server with Ubuntu Server 14.04 on Raspberry Pi 2 | Life in apps, os's and code!
6. Configuring Ubuntu PPA | Official OpenCPN Homepage
7. sudo apt-get install xinit
8. sudo apt-get install gpsd gpsd-clients
9. sudo apt-get install screen
10. sudo killall gpsd
11. sudo mknod /dev/ttyUSB0 c 188 0
12. sudo gpsd -N -n -D 2 /dev/ttyUSB0 &

Re: Opencpn Pi2 raspbian

I got opencpn and plugins to install from the distro with no problem on debian ( bananaian ). The trick was to upgrade to 'jessie'. I think there is now a jessie release out of bananaian. After that:

edit /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb Index of /opencpn/opencpn/ubuntu trusty main
deb-src Index of /opencpn/opencpn/ubuntu trusty main
deb ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian sid main


apt-get update
apt-get install opencpn
<apt-get install opencpn-plugin-... >

**** make sure to remove the 'sid' entry in /etc/apt/sources.list now so you don't mess yourself up later.
