yet another geek
I have a problem with running navit on asus eee pc. I have installed it from your repository and this step was without problem. I setup my gps over bluetooth and it also works great with gpsd (kismet show my curent position). When I start navit it shows mi an error: ** (:4548): WARNING **: can't load '/usr/lib/navit/gui/libgui_cegui.so', Error '/usr/lib/navit/gui/libgui_cegui.so: undefined symbol: _Z12map_rect_newP3mapP13map_selection' vehicle_gpsd:vehicle_gpsd_new_gpsd:Retry interval not defined, setting to 10 vehicle_gpsd:vehicle_gpsd_try_open:Connected to gpsd fd=4 iochan=0x81e8c90 watch=0xf Error parsing '/usr/share/navit/navit.xml': Failed to open file '/usr/share/navit/maps/*.xml': No such file or directory at line 107, char 51 navit-real: fccache.c:423: FcCacheFini: Assertion `fcCacheChains[i] == ((void *)0)' failed. /usr/bin/navit: line 13: 4548 Aborted /usr/bin/navit-real Sorry for my bad english. I will be grateful for any sugestion. PS I didn't make any changes in configuration file navit.xml (Maby it's nesscessery
Hello, Pavel. Yes, you need a configuration file. You should copy /usr/share/navit/navit.xml into $HOME/.navit/ and modify the copy to your needs. The unknown symbol is a known bug, but it shouldn't prevent use of the GTK GUI. Have a look at the wiki on the Navit project page for help with configuration. Also, I have almost finished the navit-startup-wizard, I'm writing for this package. It will guide the user through a basic configuration, if it doesn't find a configuration file in $HOME/.navit. It will be a few more days before this goes into the package, though, so you might want to try the manual configuration first.
Thaks for your replay. I copied this file to /home/user/ (default home directory on asus) but it didn'd change anything, The default navit.xml file seems to contain all nesscessery information but probably a have to change something in it. I think that in asus eee default settings are always the same. I could wait for your script maybe it will slove my problem. You're doing great job in this project. PS I am very grateful for your help
Hi Pawel, the newest package now has the wrapper script, that helps with configuration. Read the "Update 2" article on this blog.
