[Solved] How to install OpenCPN

#1

Post by Seagasm » Sun Aug 11, 2019 3:01 am

You guessed it, I am a sailor. I have tried to install OpenCPN, a chartplotter program from the Stable Repo and the MX-Test Repo without success. I would appreciate some assistance please since both Repo's don't work. I have a Toshiba Qosmio 64bit with MX-Linux 18.03 as my default OS.

Thank you

I used the package installer (stable repo) and it works OK.

Wonder why your attempts failed.

It works here, using MXPI, but your New Zealand repos have often missed mirroring packages in the past.
Can you switch to another repo using the MX repo manager?

If Stevo's suggestion doesn't solve it, this could possibly be the culprit:

Code: Select all

 Active apt repos in: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jgeboski.list 
1: deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/jgeboski/Debian_9.0/ ./
It appears to be a PPA of some sort??

If you try

Code: Select all

aptitude install opencpn
you will get more information about why it's not working, and you will be presented with a potential fix, if it's not what you want, reply no and it will look for another.
