The plugin name "climatology-{plugin_1.2.pkg" should not have the "{" symbol in it .
Did you build the plugin yourself or is this the download version?
I don't see the problem.

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

Hi Peter,

The plugin was the downloaded version - which I have just downloaded again and this time opened the package and it installed no problems.

Thanks

Will

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

The handy Status Bar plugin does not work properly in OpenCPN v4.6.


Although the "Preferences" dialog box appears when clicking on the button, the problem is that:


1. Changes made are not affected,
2. and also lost when clicking on the "OK" button on the "Preferences" dialog.


I did send an email to Sean but I'm not sure he uses the same email account anymore. Can anybody notify him?

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

Hello,

I am facing similar difficulties under OpenSUSE Linux with some of those pugins.
I had to make a few change to compile Weatherfax (I have created a fix branch) but not fixed all the issue related to the coming gcc 6.

I have a bigger issue with weather_routing_pi which is a critical piece of code.
I have succeded to build it but I notice that all the boatolar are provided in .pol format but the plugin only accepts .xml.

As the polar_pi plugin creates .pol file, this is problematic.
Has anyone a solution to create a working system for general user ?

Furthermore, weatherrouting refuses to read girb files coming from zygrib while the grib plugin can read them. I have seens no correction for that.

I have also raised bugs on github on the same topics.

Any clue ?

Dominig

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

Doming,
The weather_routing plugin uses XML for the Boat.XML or [Your Boat Name].xml file.
This file stores information about your boat in XML format, including multiple Polar files which can be ordered and used in appropriate winds (basically sail sets). These polar files can be XXXXX.pol or XXXXX.txt or whatever, but they must be in a certain format. Sean has done some work to make the various "flavors" of *.pol more acceptable.

I hope that helps. When going into Edit BOAT, first pick the Boat.XML, then ADD polar files to it.

The manual is now outdated and needs a big update. I have been hoping to get to it, but have been pretty busy lately. Editing Volunteers are very welcome to improve the Plugin Documentation. There is a long list but Weather_fax, Weather_Routing are two of them.

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

Let me know if there is anything to try compiling. I haven't been watching lately. Sorry.

Re: Sean Depagnier's Plugins

Sean,

on git hub I have created a fork with a branch for quick compilation error correction for weatherfax_pi but for next release of Linux to wome soon where gcc6 become the norm, more change will be required.

For weather_routing_pi, your trick has allowed me to pass the creation of a Polar (some documentation update is really needed) BUT it sill does not work.

Except is you ask me to do differently, I will post my bug reports directly as issue in github. It's the best place to manage them in line with the actual code changes.

I would really like to get weather_routing to work before pushing 4.6 on the official OpenSUSE repo. It's a key plugin.
