    Thanks for providing an open source divelog!

    I wanted to take a look at it (using windows xp), but I can't figure out how to import data from divelogs.de. I exported my data to a .DLD file, then tried to import it using the "import XML files" menu. First off, it doesn't show files with a DLD extension, so you have to type the filename. The program then responds that it "Failed to parse" that file. Next, I tried the command line: error message is "Failed to open 2 files"... Starting from scratch in divelogs.de didn't solve these problems.

    Any suggestions?

    Oh dang. It appears that I have built the Windows binary without libzip support - and that is needed to load DLD and SDE files.
    Give me a few minutes and a new installer will be up on the website.
    Thanks for catching that (it would have been even better had you reported this in trac.hohndel.org - there I get automatic notification when people report bugs...)

    Ok, I replaced the .exe on the website and verified that this one indeed does include libzip and now successfully opens .DLD and .SDE files.

    Looks like an interesting project but i can't get it to work with my Petrel.

    The bluetooth works quite happily as i tried it immediately prior to that using the Shearwater software.

    On Subsurface i go to the download dive window, select the correct computer, select COM1 (there are NO other options displayed to choose from) and when trying to start the download i just get "unable to open COM1". (and yes the computer is in upload log mode).

    Using win7 64bit with the supplied Shearwater BT dongle etc etc.

    Edit:- Identical problem on my win7 laptop using its internal bluetooth.

    Hi String,

    I am a Shearwater engineer. To use the Shearwater computers with Subsurface, you first need to pair the dive computer manually in the Windows "Add a device" menu. Start the Bluetooth countdown on the Petrel, then go to "Add a Device" and pair with the Petrel using pairing code 0000.

    Windows now sees the Petrel as a COM port (if you right click on the Petrel icon and go to Properties, the Services tab will show you which COM port).

    However, I've tried it and the Petrel downloads still did not work for me. The Shearwater Predator downloads did work though.

    We will look into this with the Subsurface developers (or libdivecomputer developers) to get it working.

    Best regards,
    Tyler Coen

    Hey Tyler, thank you so much for helping out here. I don't think we have a current tester with a Petrel (we have a couple of Predator users, though). Could you send email to me (first at last dot org) and Jef (libdivecomputer maintainer, I'm sure you have his email address) so we can fix this problem?
    Thanks

    Thanks for that reply - i tried the manually pairing and it didn't work before posting here but nice to have it confirmed its not just my systems here.

    Took a quick look and the software looks pretty nice, I'll have to have a closer look this evening, though I may run into the same Petrel issue posted above. If you need another Petrel tester, pop me off a PM. Any plans to create an import from oceanic oceanlog?

    I tried again and it works, but there are a number of problems. I reported those in trac. If you need it I can send you my DLD file.

    What is the best place for feature requests and non-technical discussion of subsurface? The mailing list seems geared towards the programmers, not directly useful for ordinary users.

    Is the program compatible with exporting to any of the Android Dive Logs? (such as Dive Log)
