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?

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:

Any ideas or suggestions?

Shall we update this to 4.1.x? I have a diff if interested, it's working fine!

Mr.Elendig commented on 2015-06-18 14:45

I really wish that opencpn will get ported to qt5 instead off horrible wx, but that will never happen.

sredna commented on 2015-06-17 11:31

I'll update and see how it works for me, seems I did not react in time :p

Mr.Elendig commented on 2015-06-17 09:51

Switched to wxwidgets 3, note that some people are experiencing some focus glitches with the bar, so ymmv.
