2. Very minor annoyance - when running OpenCPN from a command line, terminal is not reset properly to original line discipline on program exit. In effect a command like 'opencpn && reset' is necessary. Folks who run OpenCPN by clicking on an icon will never see this, though.

I can't repeat either point, using 64 bits Kubuntu 12.04.
You're using Compiz or GNOME Shell or similar - transparent tool-bar.
I wonder if that comes into the equation?

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1723

Compiz is indeed in use
Code:
$ ps ax | grep compiz
13793 ?        S      0:02 /usr/bin/compiz --sm-client-id .....
13823 ?        Ss     0:00 /bin/sh -c /usr/bin/compiz-decorator
but no idea whether it matters or not.
I don't recall seeing this behaviour on F11 event previously though, so maybe it is not compiz related?

worked without problems, automatic update on Ubuntu 10.04!


But with my 10" 1024x600 netbook-display I can't see the buttons OK, Cancel, ... in route properties on Ubuntu 10.04. On Win 7 Starter the route properties window does not make problems on the same display and resolution.

Have you tried any Mac builds/runs?

Thanks

Dave:
I have been trying the builds you have been downloading to the OpenCPN download site, and they have been improving steadily as you guys fix bugs.
I am on a Mac Pro Quad core with 10 gig RAM and lots of disk space running OS 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard), is there anything you would like me to do? Are the instructions on the Developer page still accurate for building? I still get lots of warnings (about 200) about deprecated subs. Do you have a shell script to build OpenCPN on Mac?

TIA,

Freddie

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1723

Freddie....

Thanks for your Mac support.

When I build for Mac, I simply grab the github master tree into a local directory, create and switch to a build directory, and do cmake and make. Like this:

Code:
$git clone git://opencpn.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/opencpn/opencpn
$cd opencpn
$mkdir build_carbon
$cd build_carbon
$cmake ..
$make
I get lots of deprecated function warnings from carbon libraries, which I sail past.


I'd be happy to look at your build logs if you want to try this with the current code base.
I'm actually working with the Hack right now...

Dave

Thanks for your help, this took about 3-4 minutes on my Mac to build.
But it blows up after its built.
Here is the build log from Terminal, and the crash report:

TIA,
Freddie

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1723

I finally got around to downloading the latest beta. It seems to work fine unless I select "Use OpenGL". Then the screen simply doesn't update. When I move the cursor over any of the chart buttons at the bottom of the screen the information window pops up but doesn't go away, so if I move the cursor over several chart buttons I get a stack of little information windows. I have no problem clearing the "Use OpenGL" flag and that causes everything to start working again.

Is there some simple step I've missed or is this a known bug?

I'm running build 1723 under Windows Vista. I've attached the log file from a test in which I launched OpenCPN, selected "Use OpenGL", tried to pan the chart, tried to select different charts, then cleared "Use OpenGL" and exited.

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1723

Pavel..
Installing v. 2.6.1718 on top of the previously installed version,I get a series of error messages. The final installation seems to work but I am worried that important things are left out. Should I delete the old version first and then do a fresh install?
Anybody suggest a reason/solution?

I am running Win 7 on a brand new dual core desktop.

Permission problem on your machine. Make sure OpenCPN is not running and run the setup as Administrator - When you right-click the downloaded installer, an option "Run as Administrator" should be in the menu (I think second from the top).

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1723

Bug?
In "Route Properties" - "Departure time"
It seems like i can't set a departure time... When I open properties for the route, the field is empty even if I set it before pressing OK.

Date format: m/d/y h:m eg. 05/25/2012 17:00
Tried other variants like: 5/25/12 5:00

Is this a bug or just a user error?

Try changing "User Account Control settings" in Control panel. Pull the slider all the way down. You will then gain full Admin rights on your computer.
Location: Start-Control Panel-User Accounts-User Accounts-Change User Account Control Settings
Change and reboot. Try re-installing after this has been done.

Re: OpenCPN Version 2.6 Beta Build 1723

fgd3....

OpenGL on Vista is not great. The problem relates to MS implementation of Aero compositor, and nobody is (or was) happy about it.

Try turning screen compositing effects off, and maybe OpenGL will work. If not, then legacy DC mode may be your best option.
