Are you running FlightGear as the same user who installed it?
@devs: Sounds like a permissions problem.
There are free alternatives to every program you encounter. You just have to find them.

it does sound like a permission problem but it is not due to anything in FG... on the surface, it appears to be the way FG was installed...
