Linux Mint 18.2 - cannot install from instructions on launchpad

Is there some kind of secret decoder ring I need to get this to install? I have tried to install OpenCPN on several distros, and none have installed so far. I have searched here but no suggestions seem to work, so far.

I followed the instructions to the letter, and if anyone is interested I have been a linux admin/user since System V Init was released. I have a dozen distros in use, and I was able to make a Thumbdrive Puppy Linux OpenCPN build back in 2012/13

Anyways:
https://launchpad.net/~opencpn/+archive/ubuntu/opencpn

Results when trying to install:
Code:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:

opencpn: Depends: libcurl3 (>= 7.16.2) but 7.47.0-1ubuntu2.13 is to be installed
         Depends: libgcc1 (>= 1:3.0) but 1:6.0.1-0ubuntu1 is to be installed
         Depends: libportaudio2 (>= 19+svn20101113) but 19+svn20140130-1build1 is to be installed
         Depends: libstdc++6 (>= 5.2) but 5.4.0-6ubuntu1~16.04.11 is to be installed
         Depends: zlib1g (>= 1:1.2.3.4) but 1:1.2.8.dfsg-2ubuntu4.1 is to be installed
         Depends: opencpn-tcdata but it is not going to be installed
Is 5.0 just not shoehorned into launchpad right? Any advice to get some version of OpenCPN running on Linux?

I have tried this on 4 different Debian/Ubuntu/Mint variants over the last 2 weeks. I have had the exact same results shown above in all cases.

Thanks in advance.

Works great here in Linux mint.

This is the right procedure to install OpenCPN:

In terminal:

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

sudo add-apt-repository ppa opencpn/opencpn (ppa double points between o)

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install opencpn


Regards,


Bram

Re: Linux Mint 18.2 - cannot install from instructions on launchpad

Yep. Tried that in several of them:
Code:
[~] $ sudo apt-get install opencpn
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 opencpn : Depends: opencpn-tcdata but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
[~] $
Hence, the reason for my post here. I cannot get any of the recommended methods to work.

That: "opencpn-tcdata" requirement kills it every time. I wonder if there isn't an error in the dependency tree?

I'm gettin frustrated, I tell you. Fuh Rust A Rated!!

Re: Linux Mint 18.2 - cannot install from instructions on launchpad

Okay, I went medieval on it. DO NOT EVER TRY THIS AT HOME!!

The HACK:

The problem is circular dependencies. OpenCPN thinks it requires "opencpn-tcdata", and "opencpn-gshhs-low" before it will install. Both debs require OpenCPN to be installed before THEY will install. Catch-22

So I did a brute force hack on the ailing OpenCPN .deb file for my distro (Xenial). I unzipped it and modified the "/DEBIAN/control" file, removed those two offending dependencies, saved the file, and re-assembled the OpenCPN .deb file.

It then installed without errors, and I was able to load chart data into it. I was then able to install the "opencpn-tcdata_3.3.2107-0~utopic1_all.deb", "opencpn-gshhs-crude_2.2.4-0~utopic2_all.deb", and "opencpn-gshhs-low_2.2.4-0~utopic2_all.deb" files without errors.


Sooo .. Maybe this will help someone else. Dunno. Maybe the package maintainer will see this. Dunno ..

But anyway, it's a strange way to run a railroad, ain't it? ... Yeah, WE know ..

jafa...

Yup, I seen it....


All good things come in good time, juggling all priorities. Even railroads....


opencpn-tcdata for Xenial is now available in the PPA. So a normal


Code:
$sudo apt-get install opencpn

should succeed now.
Nice hack, though....

"opencpn-gshhs" ? Let's keep the love flowing, shall we?

Well that's good news, I use Mint on the boat and opencpn, but was waiting to do an upgrade, but feel more confident now it will work.

Re: Linux Mint 18.2 - cannot install from instructions on launchpad

Okay, folks. I just successfully installed on Devuan-ASCII which is a System V Init fork of Debian.


How?

Code:
1) Added the line "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/opencpn/opencpn/ubuntu/ xenial main" to the end of the /etc/apt/sources.list file.

2) Ran: sudo apt-get update

3) Ran: sudo apt-get install opencpn
And that's it! Just like in the brochure ..
