Have you noticed that the baud rate should be set to 9600?

Hi Thomas,
I also tried to set it up in VirtualBox running Win10.
There I looked at the port setting, and it said it was connected to Port4 at 4800 baud, so I assumed that it was correct at hat setting, however it didn't work in Win10 either.

Now in Ubuntu, I changed the baud to 9600 as you suggested and 'bingo' it worked, thank you for taking the time to help!!!

Angry Re: OS Linux specific

afternoon all,


I'm a brand new Ubuntu user (downloaded today specifically to set up a boat computer). I've managed to successfully install Ubuntu, using it now as a matter of fact. I've tried to follow the faqs to get the PPA loaded and those commands appear to be running just fine but when I try to use the commands to load a plug-in, I get:
Code:
jason@SwampPirate:~$ sudo apt-get install opencpn-plugin-logbookkonni Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree        Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package opencpn-plugin-logbookkonni
What am I doing wrong?

Probably nothing. You don't say which version of Ubuntu you are using, but opencpn-plugin-logbookkonni is not (yet) available for any of the versions of Ubuntu you can easily download.

It is "the easiest". Being the easiest unfortunately has nothing to do with me or someone else having time to package 3rd party plugins for it...
