Sebastien...
There is a link to the source code of every single plugin at PlugIns | Official OpenCPN Homepage - just click on "Source Code", which will lead you to the github repository.

Re: OpenCPN plugin and raspberry

Pavel,

Is it true then that armv7 users now must compile from source? Before we switched the plugins to ppa there were armv7 builds.

No, it is not true. ARMv7 builds are in the standard PPA.
I'm not going to do anything about ARMv6 - too time consuming, too little interest.

Thanks all,

Ok for me ppa (if i'm right ppa standar is apt-get install package ?) didn't work. I should make something wrong. Before compiling i will check what is wrong.

Thanks for your reply.

Sebastien...
You must first add the PPA to your system, Ubuntu instructions are at Configuring Ubuntu PPA | Official OpenCPN Homepage
But isn't the Raspeberry PI ARMv6?

Re: OpenCPN plugin and raspberry

Hi all

I still have probleme with OpenCpn plugin and ppa. I added the ppa of opencpn as it s describe in the link but i still do not find plugin. I was wondering is i m using the good OS : i m using Raspbian, but i see there is a ubuntu distribution for rasp ; ubuntu Mate. Do i have to switch to this diostribution, or should work with raspbian ?

Thanks for your advice

Sebastien

Re: OpenCPN plugin and raspberry

Sebastien...
The DEB packages from the PPA should work just fine on Raspbian as they do on x86 normal Debian.
But you can't just blindly follow the Ubuntu instructions and have to pretend that you are using a version of Ubuntu similar to your Debian version, for example on my Debian machine, I use a configuration which looks like this
Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/opencpn/opencpn/ubuntu trusty main
Note that I pretend that my distribution is trusty (=Ubuntu 14.04) instead of Debain Jessie it really is.
You will find the PPA configuration in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

Re: OpenCPN plugin and raspberry

Uncle...
Your system seems to be Wheezy based, but I suppose you configured your APT to use Trusty version of the packages from our PPA. Switch it to Precise and you should be fine.
There is no need to wipe anything and no need to start other threads with even less information, invest your time into learning something about how the stuff you use actually works instead

Good luck

Pavel

Yes Yes thanks!! I am new ish to linux and the Rpi, so my errors are due to this i am sure. I looked for this information, couldnt find it, maybe it should be in a note somewhere in the PPA info?

Re: OpenCPN plugin and raspberry

Then you either need a newer OS, based on Jessie, or to build from source.

For some older plugins setting APT to Lucid will be sufficient, but as it is already unsupported on Launchpad, we are not able to build any new packages for it.

Re: OpenCPN plugin and raspberry

Some more thoughts - As Upgrade to Raspbian Jessie - Raspberry Pi Stack Exchange says, Raspbian (I suppose you are using it) should be upgradeable to Jessie.
If you really are an adventurous type, you can try to save some time and upgrade just the libc6 package from Jessie of course.
