Install BBN Marine OS which already has OpenCPN. With plugins included. Preconfigured to talk to relevant local services. Pi5 support. With touchscreen features working. Long touch, two finger zoom. On screen keyboard. Working pypilot calibration. etc
No long compilation of SignalK.

No messing around installing openCPN yourself.
No struggling on touchscreen as with other distributions.

Re: New Raspberry Pi 5 and OpenCPN

Hi guys
I need some help. I have loaded open cpn latest version on my new Raspberry pi5 . The first issue I had was the file tab section moving to the centre but as per these past messages I solved that.

My big issue is I can’t see my charts. I created the folder and put all the charts in there and created the links but I see nothing. Not even the red borders which you see zoomed out.

I have open cpn on my pc running Linux and don’t have this problem. I see all the charts.

Anyone with some advice for a tech struggling sailor ?

Re: New Raspberry Pi 5 and OpenCPN

MijeF, what charts are you using ? The O-charts sets ? Then you have to use the O-charts plugin.

If you have the fingerprints set. These work no longer on a new systeem.

If you use the USB dongle . It must be switched on. And in the plugin menu you have to activate the usb dongle.

Then you must rearrange the charts after loading one set.

To get free charts you can use the chart loader plugin.

Don't forget to update the plugins in OpenCPN.

Re: New Raspberry Pi 5 and OpenCPN

I am using Kap files but mainly Mbtiles. As mentioned on my windows setup of open Cpn as well a standard Linux setup of open cpn it all works but not on the pi5 64 bit software. Can’t understand why. When you open the charts tile the links are shown there.

Re: New Raspberry Pi 5 and OpenCPN

Hey Folks
Thought I would share some progress with the Pi5, NVMe hat with 1Tb drive, Open CPN and the Pican-M hat.
All is working delightfully well. I can see all the traffic. TB of space is great as I have everything running on it. Only challenge is that it maxes out my power supply so have a new one on order. I have a CT-2 inline ampmeter and it pulls too much power that the Pi5 doesn't have enough. Right at the 3amp threshold of my power supply. Getting the proper 5A/27W power supply - today?
Here is a picture of the setup. I had my Garmin 18HD radar working on a Pi4a so now have to get it working on this setup. Using YachtDevices and AOS (simulator) to put some NMEA2000 traffic on the bus. All works well.
Oh, be careful. I broke off the little PCIe tab for the cable from the NVMe hat - oops... hence the tape there. I might try to 3D print one... this works fine for now.
Here is a picture of the setup.

How is touchscreen working for you in this setup?
Putting waypoints with touch, downloading charts, zooming and on-screen keyboard?

You can try BBN Marine OS which is free open source and looks more like a chartplotter. Works on pi5 and with touchscreens.

Re: New Raspberry Pi 5 and OpenCPN

Hi!
Having two issues on headless Rpi5
1) OCpn alway crash on first start, nothing in logfile.
After choosing "No" for safe mode next start OCpn starts.
Not a big issue, but probably related to next:

2) Chart bar is showing up at wrong place, like:
https://www.cruisersforum.com/forums...ml#post3843929

Full screen toggle do not work, see screenshot.
Manual resize as screenshot is not good.

Enviroment is Raspberry Pi5, Openplotter build,Headless via VNC.
Wayland is shut of, using x11 instead.
OpenGL and hardware acceleration disabled in config file.
Several reinstallations etc tried.

Re: New Raspberry Pi 5 and OpenCPN

Hi again
Put some work in it and found a workaround.

More symptoms:
Using Hardware acceleration (OpenGL) in OpenCPN/Display/advanced makes system slow.
Pi: Preferences/screenconfiguration do not work

Connecting fysical HDMI screen solves all problems
So a workaround forcing Pi5 to always use HDMI, 1080x1920 even without screen connected:

In boot/firmware/config.txt:
hdmi_force_hotplug=1
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=82

Edit by: sudo nano /boot/firmware/config.txt

In boot/firmware/cmdline.txt
video=HDMI-A-1:1920x1080M@60D

Edit by: sudo nano /boot/firmware/config.txt
NOTE: do not use a new row, put the text after all existing text, add a blankspace followed by: video=HDMI-A-1:1920x1080M@60D

After this Pi: Preferences/screenconfiguration work; set resolution 1080x1920
