With Leap 15.2 and earlier I used opencpn often. I use it with charts from o-charts.org and the oesenc plugin.
Currently I have Leap 15.3. I forgot to upgrade the opencpn repository,which was still at Leap 15.2, but opencpn worked fine and the encrypted charts could be used.
Last week I bought new charts. After downloading unpacking and initialising, they did not load. As the o-charts.org website indicated to check that the latest oesenc plugin is installed, I updated opencpn by chnaging the repository to 15.3

, refreshing and updating.
After that, opencpn did no longer start. When starting the application from console, this is shown:
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1075:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave ALSA lib pcm_route.c:877:(find_matching_chmap) Found no matching channel map ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1075:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave Cannot connect to server socket err = No such file or directory Cannot connect to server request channel jack server is not running or cannot be started JackShmReadWritePtr::~JackShmReadWritePtr - Init not done for -1, skipping unlock JackShmReadWritePtr::~JackShmReadWritePtr - Init not done for -1, skipping unlock Illegal instruction (core dumped)
I uninstalled all opencpn packages, then installed OpneCPN-5.x-Base only, which includes OpenCPN-TC_Data package. Same result.
I can reproduce the problem on my laptop, and also on my desktop pc (which has no encrypoted charts). On both computers there is no sound problem that I am aware of and anyway, I don’t use sound with opencpn.
How can I get my opencpn working again with the encrypted charts?
