Is there something I am doing/not doing?
Try to rename the opencpn.conf and restart.
Instructions were to find this file is n the help file that comes with the program or in the wiki documentation
over at opencpn.org.
It would also be interesting to see your logfile.
There is never any need to restart Linux
because of a program playing up.
This is treated in any basic text about Linux
. The simplest way is to use XKill by hitting Ctrl + Alt + Esc, and you will see the cursor transform into something out of the "Pirates of the Caribbean". Then just left click somewhere on the program, to "kill" it. Right click to interrupt the "kill"
