using QGIS(dev) on ubuntu 13.04

Using QGIS 1.8.0 Lisboa on Windows and Ubuntu 12.04, I had no problem opening the first
.kap file from Chart 50 as raster source. And it fits good to a Openstreetmap background.

.bsb file only contains some metadata of the chart.
BSB is listed under
Settings -> Options, GDAL tab. Is this missing on Ubuntu dev version?
Yes, QGIS (version PI) reads the BSB format directly:
