Linux Plugin Installation -need VDR_pi

OS: Ubuntu 18.04

Need to install VDR_pi

I am inexperienced with Linux

1. Launchpad has no Vdr_pi for Bionic (I think that is what I need.)
2. Use Git? I believe [Rasbats] is most current
git clone https://github.com/Rasbats/vdr_pi.git
then what exactly?

3. Use a deb package if it can be found somewhere?

-----

Install Linux Plugins
Linux Packages (*.deb or *.so)

Rick...


You find VDR for 18.04 on the Beta PPA:


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

Re: Linux Plugin Installation -need VDR_pi

I just downloaded Linux Mint. xfce, 19-03, 64 bit-ISO into my laptop, Because its the easiest to operate and is supposed to be like Windows 7,

I used Universal USB- Installer-1.9.9.0 exe to open it and install on my Flashdrive USB,
Then I put the USB Flash drive into my laptop and it installed it with no problems,

It needs a 4 GB flashdrive to down load to, It takes about 4 hours to down load,
Its 2.6 GB,

I did this because I hate windows 10 on my laptop which it came with,

Re: Linux Plugin Installation -need VDR_pi

Thanks Dave, did not see that. Will give it a try, that looks simple to do.



Also found this good blog instruction link for installing rtsl-ais_pi

compiling it, to serve as an example, some of the directories may be different.


If you don't have the GIT package install it with

$ sudo apt install git

Clone RTL-AIS from github

$ git clone https://github.com/dgiardini/rtl-ais

Compile and check

And then go to the created directory and compile

$ cd rtl-ais

$ make

Copy the program to the right place.

$ sudo cp rtl_ais /usr/local/bin

Re: Linux Plugin Installation -need VDR_pi

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

I believe I have added the PPA to my Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic system with
Quote:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppapencpn/opencpn
$ sudo apt-get update
I have also added my public key to UbuntuOne.
Now do I use?

Quote:
$ sudo apt-get install opencpn-plugin-vdr
From Ubuntu how do I see the list of plugins available & installed this way?

Re: Linux Plugin Installation -need VDR_pi

I did $ apt policy and got a lot of bionic stuff security etc, and including ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu bionic main i386 for opencpn and others. Long list.


Then used app "Software & Upgrades" under "Other Software" to find http://ppa.launchpad.net/opencpn/ubuntu bionic which is checked.


Under "Authentication" I see the key for Launchpad PPA for OpenCPN

Re: Linux Plugin Installation -need VDR_pi

To install a package from the PPA, run the following command:
Quote:
sudo apt install name-of-package
Found at the bottom of PPA's Explained

But I still get

Re: Linux Plugin Installation -need VDR_pi

Added bdbcat launchpad list. Then

Quote:
~$ sudo apt install opencpn-plugin-vdr
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
libllvm7 linux-headers-5.0.0-27 linux-headers-5.0.0-27-generic
linux-image-5.0.0-27-generic linux-modules-5.0.0-27-generic
linux-modules-extra-5.0.0-27-generic
Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove them.
The following additional packages will be installed:
opencpn opencpn-doc opencpn-gshhs-crude opencpn-gshhs-full
opencpn-gshhs-high opencpn-gshhs-intermediate opencpn-gshhs-low
opencpn-tcdata wx3.0-i18n xcalib
Suggested packages:
icc-profiles
The following NEW packages will be installed:
opencpn opencpn-doc opencpn-gshhs-crude opencpn-gshhs-full
opencpn-gshhs-high opencpn-gshhs-intermediate opencpn-gshhs-low
opencpn-plugin-vdr opencpn-tcdata wx3.0-i18n xcalib
0 upgraded, 11 newly installed, 0 to remove and 38 not upgraded.
Need to get 103 MB of archives.
After this operation, 337 MB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] n
Abort.
I said "NO" because I don't want to use 337mb in a VB!!
I think I would just like


opencpn-plugin-vdr
opencpn-tcdata
opencpn-gshhs-crude


So how do it get that and not the whole shooting match! I only asked for opencpn-plugin-vdr to begin with!


Does not seem simple anymore.


This answer isn't simple, have to lower the priority of all the other packages by creating another document.... https://askubuntu.com/questions/1702...ges-from-a-ppa

Re: Linux Plugin Installation -need VDR_pi

Does anyone know of a simple command line way of doing this


Quote:
$ sudo apt install opencpn-plugin-vdr

Without having to download 337mb of PPA updates that I do not need on my minisule VirtualBox Ubuntu 18.04?


Thanks.

Thanks.
Rick,

Use command line option to tell apt not to install dependencies. Type apt —help to find the option to override automatic install of dependencies.

Re: Linux Plugin Installation -need VDR_pi

Found this suggestion

Quote:
sudo apt-get install opencpn-plugins-vdr [dependency to not in]-
https://serverfault.com/questions/25...dencies/859394

Then ran the command again to find the packages to ignore with No afterwards.

Then I started to realize something. I used git clone https://github.com/OpenCPN/Opencpn.git and built it.

Does a PPA install of a plugin expect a PPA install of OpenCPN? My OpenCPN build is not being seen!

Is there some path problem or am I going to have to download a vdr_pi file from somewhere and execute it instead?

Maybe it would be best to just git clone it and build it? What directory should I be in when I clone vdr_pi? It look like Home/ OpenCPN / plugins. Then build it?
