Latest update; Nothing new on the western front.

For those of you waiting for a update. It will come when the opencpn devs starts to tag releases again on github instead of just ninjarelease on the download page without providing any valid link to the (signed and/or checksummed)source used for the release.

Would if there was a working static download link for the tarball with checksums from upstream, which apparently there isn't anymore, because reasons. I'm going to poke upstream about it.

Would you please fix the checksums? Thanks!

I suggest the following options be added to the cmake command line in PKGBUILD:


Adding these options causes a basic background map, tide & current data, and help files to be included in the package.

I was seeing a build error like:
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.5/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:148 message:Could NOT find wxWidgets missing: wxWidgets_LIBRARIES

However, I'm unable to reproduce this error. Thanks!

You shouldn't need wxgtk2.8, opencpn have supported wxgtk 3.x since ages ago, what were the errors you were getting during build?

gin078 commented on 2016-04-18 03:44

This package compiled for me by replacing the wxgtk dependency with wxgtk2.8.

I figured it out. I had manually placed some plugin lib*.so files in /usr/lib/opencpn. Removing these fixed the problem.

Just updated my system and rebuilt opencpn---now it won't run and I get the following output:
