I'm using Arch Linux
, with a variety of graphical desktops. It seems this isn't the problem.
I just compiled--using what is called an AUR Package Build (Similar to a Slackware Linux
'Slackbuild'). I did this with 2.5.0 and now, with 3.0.0. The build went fine, package was created, and it installed with no problems.
The ENC charts
(I have all of them) display correctly, and quilting isn't an issue.
The RNC charts
(again, I have all of them), however, are driving me batty! I'll illustrate with this screenshot: (Desktop is LXDE with Compiz Fusion in case anyone's interested.):
The screenshot above is in the United States. It's Northern Lake Huron, near Cheboygan, Michigan--where I used to boat with my parents when I was younger. The blue line is a route
I created with another program--PolarView--and just happened to be picked up by OpenCPN
(I don't mind that! :-])
What I don't understand is the abundance of black! I can't move the chart around at all and see the raster charts that are supposed to be quilted together.
I've tried many things, including the list below:
a) Rescanned and Rebuilt the Database, many times.
b) Turned off and Turned on quilting, many times.
c) Deleted the chart directory entries, and added only the RNC directory (which pertains to the image, above.)
d) Sacrificed An Old VHF Radio
with Offerings of Brass Timekeeping Instruments and a Steel Anchor
, at Sunset, in Duncan Bay (on the map.)... Well, okay, perhaps this last one *didn't happen*, but I'm about ready to try anything ;->;
Summarizing, the ENCs work fine, the RNCs don't--and don't seem to quilt correctly. They all appear to be Polyconic--but if the system isn't displaying them correctly in the main window, who knows if the lower chart type indicator symbols are correct, too.
