Looks like a nice place to anchor and swim. Got any pictures for the website photo Gallery?

Hi Dave,
thanks for fixing the problem. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all the other developers for this excellent navigation program. I did already sent some photos to the ocpn webpage.
Cheers Erich

When the busy pointer problem appears, is it associated with building an ENC SENC, or are all SENCs already built? In other words, when you switch to a vector ENC by Piano bar, does it immediately switch, leaving an orphan busy pointer?

Thanks
Dave
I wanted to get out to the boat to test this some more before I answered. When I switch to a vector chart by Piano bar the busy pointer usually appears immediately. If the chart hasn't been previously displayed I'll get a progress bar while it loads. When the progress bar goes away the busy pointer remains.

If the chart has been displayed recently I will sometimes get a busy pointer immediately. Sometimes the chart will be displayed without a busy pointer. When that happens anything that moves the chart display to a new area will trigger the busy pointer. Once the busy pointer appears it will not go away until the program is terminated.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.5.213

I did a little more checking with regard to the busy pointer. If I start OpenCPN with a raster chart showing and I select an ENC from the Piano bar I immediately get a busy pointer which never goes away.

If I terminate OpenCPN with an ENC displayed that chart will be displayed the next time I start OpenCPN. The pointer will be normal when the program starts but if I do anything which moves the chart the busy pointer appears and won't go away.

When I start OpenCPN with an ENC displayed I can perform an object query without triggering the busy pointer. I can select an RNC from the Piano bar without triggering the busy pointer.

I hope that clarifies the conditions that trigger the busy pointer.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.5.213

Fabbian...

The Ubuntu busy spinner is a real mystery. I have built I don't know how many Ubuntu virtuals, all flavors, on lots of boxes, and cannot reproduce. The internal OCPN logic is very simple. I don't get it.

If I build you a special version for debug, can you install directly from command line?

$sudo dpkg -i {blah}.pkg

?

If so, we will try some debug builds, and see if we can figure this out.

Does anyone else have trouble with busy spinner failing to turn off?

Anyone?

Thanks
Dave

You should code with some more error checking. That solves many problems in your code. E.g. trying to free or deleting a busy pointer which is not there might cause problems.

Will you send me a screenshot and logfile of your problematical Ubuntu system? I want to make sure we are looking at exactly the same system configuration.

Thanks

Dave I have seen the busy spinner in a few late betas. Ubuntu 14.04.
I had the problem yesterday, but today after upgrading to 4.5.221, it's gone.

I do have another spinner problem. After using a few raster and oeSENC charts, coming back to CM93 there is strange cursor if the scale is larger than about 1:10000. It shows a normal cursor for 3/4s and then a busy spinner for 1/4s, rinse repeat.
Changing to a raster,oeSENC or S57 and there is no problem.

I'll be happy to try it. Just let me know how to get the special version.

There was a discussion about the busy spinner a while back. I don't remember the thread but it was the fact that others were having the same problem that made me think it was worth pursuing.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Version 4.5.213

Fabbian...

So I can get it right, will you send me a short logfile showing startup and a few chart loads?

Is this 32 or 64 bit Ubuntu?

The earlier discussion about spinner, I think, mostly was concerned with a wxASSERT() in Windows debug mode. I recall we fixed that, which seems to have started your troubles.

Thanks
Dave

I've attached a log file from a session where I launched OpenCPN with raster charts showing, I selected a vector chart (which triggered the busy pointer), I selected a raster chart, and closed the program. It's Opencpn.doc.

I also attached a screenshot of the ENC with the busy pointer triggered and another showing the version information which the help button brings up. Although the screen shot doesn't show the busy pointer it was present on both screens. Hope that's of some use. Let me know if you need something more.

This is happening with 64-bit Ubuntu (14.04).

I will go back to the developer(s) of Canboat and ask to avoid an initial "P" during the creation of the talker ID.

Thanks again

That was easy to fix, CANboat now sends $Qx instead of $Px for N2K sources 240..255.

Confirmed, it works now. My Navico n2k GPS is being read by the PI3 with a CAN-hat, CANBOAT translates the N2K PGN 129025 to a NMEA0183 GLL sentence and serves it via TCP to OpenCPN.

Thanks Dave and Kees
