WeatherRouting not visible in Menu bar

Hello.

RPI 3 / Raspbian / Ocpn 5.2.4
WeatherRouting 1.13.9.0 plugin installed with plugin manager.
Installed OK.
Activated.
But it never appears in Menu bar...
The same procedure works well on W7.

Re: WeatherRouting not visible in Menu bar

and after a reboot, WeartherRouting plugin is no longer in the list of installed plugins but in available plugins...
Seems a problem with the plugin manager ?

Re: WeatherRouting not visible in Menu bar

First, the name of this thread is misleading.
The "Menu Bar" has nothing to do with plugins.
What you probably refers to is the (global) Toolbar were some (not all) plugins shows up with their belonging Icon.

For your problem.....What does your "opencpn.log" say about the plugin?

Errare humanum est. I meant ToolBar.
Here is ocpn.log. Obviously a mess installing WeatherRouting Plugin.
But why ?

Important Note.

There are multiple problems reported against the 64-bit arm builds, both raspbian and stock Debian. For the time being, OpenCPN doesn't support 64-bit builds on ARM.

Re: WeatherRouting not visible in Menu bar

I don't know enough about linux but you can see yourself in your logfile there are several plugins with errors and not loading. A lot of reasons might be responsible. Your OpenCPN main program is compiled with an old wxWidgets version. Your plugins might be compiled with another wxWidgets version. Possible is a mismatch of 32 and 64 bit. The source you get plugins from might have problems to deliver the correct version and so on and so on. As far as I know about linux the used programs should always compiled new for each Linux version to run. Very confusing.

Re: WeatherRouting not visible in Menu bar

I tried to install WeatherRouting plugin old fashion... by hand (apt-get install etc.) and it's working perfectly.This is the same version than installed by plugin manager. So I don't think problem were with the plugin itself.

I am confused now: You say it is perfectly working and why you claim about it?

because it was not working when installed with the plugin manager.
It's only working by installing the plugin "by hand".

Now I understand. Several people are not happy with this new plugin manager.
Since many years I compile my own version of OpenCPN and plugins. I only take the changes made to the code which are OK. So I have never implemented the plugin manager into my own code.
