Serial ports on OCPN 5.0

Hello sailors

I'm running Openplotter with OpenCPN5.0 on a RasperryPi3+ for navigation on my sailingboat. I recently installed the MoitessierHAT, and it works well, except that I can't get the OpenCPN to accept the signals via the virtual serial ports (se error dialogue as attachment).

The RPI user belong to the group "dialout", and I'm able to fetch the signal via wifi tcp from itself (extra usbwifi installed).

Openplotter shows that the Moitessier HAT is properly installed, and the name of the virtual serial port. cat /dev/moitessier.tty and .spi give no suprises (signal ok).

Can anyone help me to interpret the error dialogue? "... You must install serial port (modprobe correct kernel module) or plug in usb serial device" ? Ideas?

Many thanks
Andreas Vikholm

Re: Serial ports on OCPN 5.0

Might be better asking openplotter --

Though you shouldn't need to go near the connection settings for opencpn in openplotter - it's all done in openplotter serial tab -

Then opencpn gets the data from there with the default settings -
