weather routing plugin (Ubuntu) v5.0

I'm getting things setup under Ubuntu 18.04 through the ppa (not snap) and have things running pretty well except it doesn't seem the repository includes many of the plugins. For example, the weather routing plugin isn't listed and can't be installed with apt-get.

I've searched and searched to see if there is a seperate ppa for plugins but it doesn't look like there is.

Is the plugin available for OCPN v5.0 under Ubuntu?

Just to make it clear what I've done:

I've added the repository and installed opencpn
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppapencpn/opencpn
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install opencpn

Then I followed this page:
https://opencpn.org/OpenCPN/plugins/weatherroute.html and tried:

sudo apt-get install opencpn-plugin-weatherrouting

I get an error that the package is not found.

I'm sure I'm doing something silly so I could use a little help.

Re: weather routing plugin (Ubuntu) v5.0

It looks like the ppa needs updating. Just a question of time.
Meanwhile here is a 64 bit version.

Delete the .pdf extension ...as usual.

Thank you for that! Do you have the Climatology Plugin file by chance?

Thomas can you advise how you compiled this plugin .deb?
I would like to create a .travis.yml or appveyor, to do it.
Can you give me a list of commands on how to build it?
Then I hope I can figure out how to deploy it.
Assume the script to setup the MacOS is done.

PS Also I can upload the deb to my repos if that will help.

Thanks.
Rick

I'm just doing one architecture of one version of Ubuntu. Are you trying to re-invent the wheel - the Ubuntu PPA? I can't see any need for travis or whatever, on Linux. There is however a need to help Dave and Pavel to keep the PPA up to date.

I'm just doing what is already described in the documentation, same for both OpenCPN and the plugins
+Clone the Git repository
+Create the build directory
+Run cmake
+Update to latest code with "git pull"
+"make"
+"sudo make package"
+Ignore the errors due to trying to create a rpm package.
+Pick up the deb package in the "build" directory.

Thomas,

I guess I won't mess with it. I was thinking this was for OSX. Those steps seem to be readily done by Linux users. My mistake.

It looks like the Polar plugin isn't in the PPA for 18.04 yet.

Would it be possible for you to upload that here as well? I really appreciate the help!

You should really learn to compile yourself
