Problem with creating a map with gosmore


I’d like to create a up-to-date map of my mapping area for gosmore but I just can’t manage it.

After reading this article I did this:

sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev libgtk2.0-dev g++ make subversion libcurl4-gnutls-dev
svn co
cd gosmore
make prefix=/usr
sudo checkinstall

After the successful installation I downloaded osm data using JOSM and saved it as osm2.osm in the gosmore directory and ran:

cat osm2.osm | gosmore rebuild

Output of the command

When the main window appears I see the list of streets/POIs in the osm-file

FluxBB bbcode test

but when I want to see the map I see only one POI and nothing else:

FluxBB bbcode test

What am I doing wrong?

I’m using Kubuntu 9.10.

Found a solution:

Before running gosmore, I have to run


otherwise it expects a “,” instead of a “.” in the osm-file.

Hmm, just curious: According to that wiki page “unset LANG” should also work. Did you perhaps test that too? Or did you only test “LANG=”“”?

In a Bourne syntax shell (e.g. bash) LANG=“” is different compared to unset LANG…

I didn’t test “unset LANG” since “LANG=”“” worked well.
