This is a great Beta release, with lot of bug fixes and new features.
It is very nice to see how many contributors there are now compared to a year ago

"159. Implement CM93 Manual Offsets with tools Thanks, Flavius."

A small bug here. If this feature is activated and the chart shows "CM93 offset on", and you disable the feature in the Vector chart tab (the entries in the settings tab disappears) the Chart still shows "CM93 offset on" . In a way this is correct because any offsets still applies, but I don't think this is what a user expect when he/she turns off "Manual CM93 offsets".

Another observation. To update settings in the Toolbox a user has to click OK and leave the ToolBox. Would it be possible to update the settings when changing tabs! Is there such an event to hook into?

Thomas,

No, I tried clicking on the *icon* for the Ubuntu 32/64 beta releases. I finally discovered that if you click on the word "Download" you do get the correct release.

Now If I could just get past this problem in the installation (unable to create `/usr/local/share/opencpn/doc/js/jquery-ui-1.8.5.custom.min.js.dpkg-new' (while processing `./usr/local/share/opencpn/doc/js/jquery-ui-1.8.5.custom.min.js'): No such file or directory) I would be a happy mariner

You are right. I did not realize that 2 out of 3 Linux icons where linked ... and to the wrong version!!! "Download" is the link to use.

Regarding the installation of 1111, decjd reported the same thing.
I'm looking into the problem. Now likely that it is the package that I uploaded that is problematic.

There was an error when installing:
opencpn_2.2.1111-1_i386.deb

This is both in Ubuntu 10.04 and a fresh install of 10.10.
Amadeus,

I think the problem is because the directory is missing (or not created). Try this:

sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/share/opencpn/wvsdata

then rerun the installation.

Cagney,

Looks like the following directories aren't created:

/usr/local/share/opencpn/doc/js
/usr/local/share/locale/nb_NO/LC_MESSAGES

When I created these directories and reran the install, it worked.

I had to make all the folders to make a new install. It's like OpenCPN doesn't have the rights to make any new folders. Even if I use sudo. It works now. But this is a bug that should be fixed. Thanks for all help though.

I can recreate the problem on my 32 bit box but not on the 64 bit box by deleting the directory /usr/local/share/opencpn, and then try to install the package.
The data structure in this directory is not created with the 32 bit package, even though it is included in the .deb.
A workaround is to create the missing directories manually, as mentioned above.
The only difference I can think of between my 32 and 64 bit installation, both Ubuntu 10.10 is that the 64 bit has a locally compiled
version of the latest Cmake (2.8.3).
Has anyone tried to install the 1111 64 bit package?

There is now a new version of 32 bit 1111 on the server.

Cmake version 2.8.2-2 is flawed and caused the problem. This is the version that comes with Ubuntu 10.10 (and next alpha version, for now).
I upgraded to Cmake 2.8.3, and things worked.
I would appreciate if someone can confirm this by downloading and testing the new version.
Before installation run this command
Quote:
sudo rm -rf /usr/local/share/opencpn
The problem was that the old version did not create these directories.
but worked if an earlier version already had created them.

Still same problem here. Even if I: sudo rm -rf /usr/local/share/opencpn. Upgraded to Cmake 2.8.3 also trough Git. but no luck. can't make folders.

Sorry for late answer- I was out training with little wind.

Sorry but I don't get you. Cmake ha nothing to do with installing the deb package!
Did you actually download the new package from opencpn.org download page?
I can no longer repeat this problem. The new package, created using cmake 2.8.3 (actually cpack, part of the cmake package) works for me.

Thomas,

I'm seeing the same thing as amadeus. This time I had to create 9 directories:

/usr/local/share/opencpn/wvsdata
/usr/local/share/opencpn/sounds
/usr/local/share/opencpn/tcdata
/usr/local/share/opencpn/doc
/usr/local/share/opencpn/doc/js
/usr/local/share/opencpn/doc/css
/usr/local/share/opencpn/doc/images
/usr/local/share/opencpn/plugins
/usr/local/share/opencpn/s57data

I noticed that the package name was exactly the same as the previous one (opencpn_2.2.1111-1_i386.deb). Was this on purpose or did something go wrong?

Is there anything else I can do to help you debug this?

Jim (Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit)

decjd & amadeus

I wonder if anyone else has this problem? Or do we only have two users experiencing this? The problem only shows up in a new installation where the directory structure don't already exists.

The name of the package is the same on purpose. To differ one from the other, if necessary, check the creation time. The first one was created Nov 12 and the update was created Nov 14.
One way to be sure is to delete all old packages and then download again.

I'm not an expert on creating deb packages and there are a zillion things that could be behind this.

To start from the beginning. Are you two guys up to date with your updates? I always make sure that the latest updates are installed.

I reported this problem in message 226. It was an earlier version but the same problem.

I just tried again with the latest download and got the same results.

Ubuntu 10.10 32 bits latest updates.

Thanks
Jean-Marie

Build 1111 tested on Windows XP SP3 with CM93 charts

Spend today sailing on the North Sea with the Beta 1111 on a simple XP SP3 PC and using the CM93 chart set.

No problems whatsoever.
Installation copied my original settings for COM ports and Chart data.
During the whole day no errors occured.

Compliments to the makers.

Peter

My system is unique. I'm running the 32-bit Ubuntu 10.04 installation ISO on a 4 GB memory stick which has not had any updates applied to it. I tried the install again on a new system (actually my official boat computer) that has 10.04 with all the latest updates and it worked without a hitch. So probably some Ubuntu update has fixed this.
