I am running OpenCPN
5.0 on a miniPC under Ubuntu 18.04 Everything runs fine except when I try to use the nmea
debug window to check the nmea
data stream. The nmea data are there, but there is a loss of focus of the mouse. It is impossible to close the Options window and thus also impossible to close the nmea debug window. So after opening the nmea debug window, the only possiblity is to close opencpn
altogether by stopping the process in the Ubuntu system monitor
I have tried varous tricks to get control back of the mouse after opening the debug window (alt-tab, alt-F4, etc), but no success.
So I stopped using the nmea debug window and have recently installed the Debugger plugin, which works fine. The nmea data are nicely visible and I have no problem in pausing the nmea datastream and closing the Debugger window.
Any explication why the nmea debug window is causing these problems and the Debugger pluin works fine? Is this Ubuntu specific?
