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!

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

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.

Experienced font rendering issues using OpenCPN compiled against wxgtk-2.8 on my system. Those went away with a build against wxgtk (3.0.2-4 at the time) while opencpn appears to run fine using wxgtk version 3.0.

Any objections against updating the PKGBUILD to use the latest wxgtk instead?

Good news
OpenCPN 4.0.0, was published on January the 8th 2015 and can be downloaded from

No, you are misunderstanding what the flag is for.

It is basicly the same as the out of date flag on official packages. Only click it when the package is actually out of date (upstream released a new version). Build errors should be reported as a comment instead.

Athemis commented on 2014-01-20 20:34

The PKGBUILD is obviously out of date when it is not able to build the binary package anymore.
