Vector palette
#1
Hi,
I'd like to use the Vector Palette (changes the look of vector charts to Swedish printed charts) with OpenPlotter/OpenCPN. https://opencpn.org/OpenCPN/info/vectorpalette.html
My problem is that I cant't find the folder S57data to put the chartsymbols.xml in. In fact, I can't find any ocpn program folders at all...
What am I missing??
Cheers,
Pär W

The OpenPlotter program files are in /home/pi/.config/openplotter. No idea about S57data.

One good addition to your PI is the "locate" program. You can easily and quickly find files and folders from the command line. Install it with:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install locate
sudo updatedb

then

locate <whatever file or fragment of file name you are looking for>

try >
sudo leafpad /usr/share/opencpn/s57data/chartsymbols.xml

in a terminal. 

Or 
sudo nano /usr/share/opencpn/s57data/chartsymbols.xml

over SSH.

Maybe good idea to make a backup first.
