Re: OpenCPN Version 4.6.1 Released

Transmitterdan
The version that I downloaded from you (4.6.2) seems to work great and I am happy with it for the moment. Thanks very much for your kind help.
Some are glad for kelp.
Best Regards.

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.6.1 Released

All,

I have submitted the new clock gadgets to Github. Thanks to all who beta tested. Since the upload to Github is complete I am not going to need any more beta testers. Thanks to all who volunteered to help.

Best regards,

See screen shot.
Did this problem with with the 7" screen get solved. I've have not been able to use the predefined sources. I saw the code changes in a reply but wondered if it helped with the dialog problem.

Nope it is still totally unusable on the Pi with 7" screen.

I download the charts on a desktop machine and copy across.

Re: OpenCPN Version 4.6.1 Released

Slightly off topic,but there are other programs *example: VNC viewer that do not play well on the 7" official Pi touch screen making it a bad choice for OPENCPN. Unless someone comes up with Config.txt tweets that make it play well (I have wasted enough of my time) I'am headed or headless to a larger resolution.

In headless mode the resolution can be increased. Then a VNC viewer can work well with RPi.
