Help needed

Hi Guys
Have installed Opencpn on my Mac os x with no issues, however when I downloaded and installed the oeSENC 5.x plugin its not showing under plugins on the program. My computer skills are limited so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Mick

Re: Help needed

I really don't know which problems you might have.
Perhaps you tell a little bit more:
- Which version of macOS you have?
- Which version of OpenCPN you have?
- Which version of oesenc_plugin you have?
- Is the plugin shown in settings plugins?
- Have you actvated it?
- Instead of searching the web have you ever read the manual?


Actually it should be:
- OpenCPN v5.0.1 download as: http://download.opencpn.org/5.0.1/Op....1+0266678.dmg


- oesenc-plugin-ov50_3.0.0.pkg

Re: Help needed

Hi Carcode, thanks for the reply

Mac version is 10.11.6

opencpn version 5.0.1

oesenc plugin v50-3.0.0

Doesn't show up in settings plugins, therefore can't activate it

Have read manual and it says mac will send files to proper places

Thanks
Mick

I can't say for 10.11.6. Version El Capitan is more than 3 years old.
I have tested with macOS 10.14.6 Mojave and it works fine.
When starting the pkg and installing the plugin do you see a message about warning of a non certified programmer?

So it should to be installed.
Then you go in the OpenCPN settings to Plugins and activate it.

Open the OpenCPN logfile and search for a line like this:
Code:
13:34:10 EEST: PlugInManager:  /Applications/OpenCPN.app/Contents/PlugIns/oesenc_pi/liboesenc_pi.dylib
              API Version detected: 111
              PlugIn Version detected: 300

First however look in /Applications/OpenCPN.app/Contents/PlugIns/
if a path/file oesenc_pi/liboesenc_pi.dylib is seen there.
If you are new to macOS you open the contents a program bundle like /Applications/OpenCPN with the right click mouse in Finder.

I cannot explain you each function of OpenCPN.
You should read the manual. Anything is explained there.

Try the question mark button of the tools bar.
