Please note that when using this package, you will not be able to use the Plugin Manager but have to install plugins via the aur or compile them yourself. If you need a plugin that is not in the aur, feel free to contact me for help.

Hi, Thanks so much to @cybuzuma for taking this up!

All installs for me without any problems

I have a slight niggle that the waypoint names are in white whatever I do in OpenCPn settings and GTK themes

I have bought this up upstream, but wondered if anyone else using this version has the same behaviour?

Thanks again

@dantob, thank you for the info. Hoever I used @cybuzumas aur and it works great. Thank you very much to you both.

@vwidmer, turns out I have gcc11 set as default in my path after running into problems with gcc12 earlier

Here's how I got it to build with wxgtk30 (AUR) and gcc11 (Community) https://gist.github.com/dantob/d8438eb1da0aaa24d48e510e39b7771f

You can try [deleted as I took over this package] There is a problem with the class wxTransformMatrix which opencpn uses since 5.6.2. It is marked as deprecated in wx-3.2 in a way that causes a compiler error (see https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets/issues/22790). I created a patch file with a dirty hack that makes opencpn compile and work as far as I can tell.

@dantob can you share your PKGBUILD or what you changed? I tried and opencpn compiles but when I try to run it just says "Floating point exception (core dumped)"

This doesn't build against wxwidgets-gtk3 3.2.0 in extra. But I did get a working version 5.6.2 build using wxgtk30 3.0.5.1 in aur using paths like /opt/wxgtk-3.0.5/wx-config. (you can install both wx packages at the same time)

@tasso I'm sorry you feel that way, unfortunately, it's out of my hands.

You can bring this issue upstream at https://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN/ if you want, and/or offer help for development and maintenance of packages. I know the team is short-staffed and could use help.

I'm not sure that downloading >600 MByte of flatpak-bs and relying on a third party container thingy which is not lxc should really be the recommended way to install. :(

OK thank you.

I hope someone will adopt it. I would do it if i had the skills.
