Hello and Thank you Dave:
All of screens on Opencpn appear ok.
GPSD works fine with xgps (the position is displayed and accurate). However the data isn't being displayed in OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1705. I have the gps
section in the configuration set to GPSD on localhost (same as in Ubuntu 11.10, whiched worked fine). Neither the Dashboard nor the Autofollow vessel indicator are receiving NMEA
data (at 4800).
The output in the opencpn logfile today is below:

Do your screens look right?
You say gpsd does not work.....
Lets start by looking at your opencpn logfile please.
Also, please tell us more about your test setup.
