if you haven't already done so. It should answer a few of your questions.
This takes us back to your original problem with crashes. What was the reason for those crashes? Anything to do with your graphical card? The error message points i that direction.
This needs to be sorted out first. I don't think that your problems are related to OpenCPN per se. Linux/Ubuntu does not just crash out of the blue. There is a very specific, and fixable reason.
Reinstalling, will probably not help. Any insights into the original problem? Have you tried to download the latest graphical driver from your cards manufacturer, for example?
Nohal's advice is good especially if you have a 64 bit processor, as 3.2.2 for Ubuntu 64 bits is compiled on Ubuntu 12.10.
I installed the synaptic package manager that was not installed on my computer.
Is it possible to paste into the terminal? I am trying to paste this line:
"sudo apt-get install libwxgtk2.8-0 libwxbase2.8-0 wx-common libglu1-mesa libgl1-mesa-glx zlib1g bzip2 gpsd gpsd-clients xcalib libportaudio2"
as recommended in the installation chapter.
I had a crash while installing updates. The package manager was broken or something similar. I don't really remember. Sorry. The first time I lost
the wireless. The second time other tings were not working and that's why I reinstalled Ubuntu entirely.
How do I download the latest graphical driver ? I don't know where to start. I don't know what card I have.
This is a mini Dell 9 bought in 2009 just for a sailing trip to Europe
. It used to run XP until it got a virus and I switched to Ubuntu under my teenage son's guidance. He is not home anymore!
This is not a 64 bit computer and I run 12.04LTS.
I am hoping for more help. Thanks.
