OCM, or Open Cache Manager is an piece of software for all your geocaching needs.


Gentoo doesn’t has an ebuild (at least none I couldn’t find) for OCM. We need to configure it by hand. This means compile it. OCM is developed in C# and Java . It is heavily dependent on Mono.

This are packages for Gentoo, but probably for any other distro, the names are equal if not the same.  It could work .

Dependencies:

dev-lang/mono
dev-dotnet/webkit-sharp
dev-dotnet/gconf-sharp
dev-dotnet/ndesk-dbus
dev-dotnet/ndesk-dbus-glib

Let’s emerge all this packages. This may take a while, whether you already have or not some packages

emerge -av dev-lang/mono dev-dotnet/webkit-sharp dev-dotnet/gconf-sharp dev-dotnet/ndesk-dbus dev-dotnet/ndesk-dbus-glib

After all dependencies are met, lets configure and install Open Cache Manager

Download the latest version from http://sourceforge.net/projects/opencachemanage/files/

tar -zxvf opencachemanager-1.0.15.tar.gz
cd opencachemanager-1.0.15
./configure

If there’s something missing, configure will exit with an error and with the information of what’s missing.

make
make install

After all installed, let’s execute it. The binary for OCM is ocm-gtk !
