opencpn will not run

I install on Mipis Linux_64. The mouse shows it was starting but nothing happens, the mouse returns to normal. No folder for opencpn was created in home/user.
libc6=2.11.3-3
libwxgtk2.8-0=2.8.12.1-0
libglu1-mesa=7.7.1-5
libgl1-mesa-glx=7.7.1-5
zlib1g=1:1.2.3.4.dfsg-3
bzip2=1.0.5-6+squeeze1
libsdl1.2debian=1.2.14-6.1
libtinyxml2.6.2=2.6.2-1build1
xcalib=0.8.dfsg1-2

Installed opencpn_3.0.0-1_amd64.deb

There are no log or conf files so how do I find out what's wrong. What else do you need to know to help?

Re: opencpn will not run

Try opening a terminal window and starting opencpn from there, and see if you get any meaningful error message.

Happened to me as well.
Try uninstalling & reloading.
Down load newest version.

Re: opencpn will not run

Tried the terminal and here is what it showed:
opencpn: /lib/libc.so.6: version 'GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by opencpn)

Mepis uses libc6 version 2.11.3-3. The highest debian version I can find is 2.13.33
So where is version 2.14??

Uninstalling & reloading changes nothing. I'm using the latest version of OpenCPN

Re: opencpn will not run

Ubuntu is now using libc6 2.15....., but trying to find and install 2.14 will probably lead you to a lot of dependency problems.

I think it's best if you try to compile yourself. Follow these instructions Compiling - Linux | Official OpenCPN Homepage

Surprise!! I also put this on the Mepis forum and they built it. For those using Linux this is one reason to try Mepis. So I have OpenCPN up and running. Thanks for all the Help

Great! I had a look at the Mepi forum. Looks good. Can you get us a good link to the packages, or the correct line for the repro?
We want links to all available packages for all different Linux distros on the download page.

From Mepis forum:

Opencpn 3.0.0 will be available in the MEPIS 11 Testing CR later this evening.
For those who can't wait, debs are here (temporarily):

32 bit - http://teharris.net/misc/opencpn_3.0.0- ... 1_i386.deb

64 bit - http://teharris.net/misc/opencpn_3.0.0- ... _amd64.deb

Note to new users of opencpn - you need to download some nautical charts for this program to be very useful. For the U.S. a good place to start is here: Nautical Charts & Pubs

Index of /mepiscr/testrepo
There are other community repro, just do a search or check WIKI
