FGpanel

Postby gcb » Thu Sep 27, 2018 9:13 pm

I am having trouble figuring out how to go about installing fgpanel.

I plan to run my main screen on linux, and have fgpanel on a surface tablet with touch screen running windows.

So far I could not find any binary for windows. The wiki takes me to a 404
and going to jenkins i still can't find it. even the build is not there anymore.

I did build everything on the main linux box, and was planning to just move it to a linux virtualbox and run fgpanel from there. It almost worked out, but then i realized i build everything on my very odd system and was trying to run it on ubuntu 18.06 image, which is behind on a few library (mainly glew) and it turned out to be too much of a pain to update. i tried to install the full flightgear package on the VM, but it doesn't have fgpanel (thought it have even the man pages for it!) https://ubuntu.pkgs.org/18.04/ubuntu-un ... 4.deb.html

Is fgpanel replaced with something else? if not where can i find windows or ubuntu binaries? thank you!
