2018.2.1 Launcher issue

Postby camileck » Thu Jun 07, 2018 7:21 pm

FG version: 2018.2.1 ( ... flightgear)
OS: Ubuntu 16.04

Add-ons launcher tab got a new look. I tried to reorder my Custom scenery folders. So I hover the mouse over the right side of the list, then button appears. I thought I need to press and hold left mouse button on it and move mouse up or down. But instead of one line changing its position on the list my whole screen is being scrolled up or down. How do I change folders order? I know I can delete records one by one and add them in my desired order but I don't think it is the way it should be done.

i've forwarded this to the dev mailing list so james will be more sure to see it...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

I'm wondering.... It seems that it does not work for "Additional scenery folders".

On "Additional aircraft folders", it works merely by left-clicking on "Move up" or "Move down". Probably correct.

As a (possible?) temporary workaround, look at the file "FilghtGear.ini", which for me (version by is under .fgfs/FlightGear
At line 43,
Code: Select all
scenery-paths=/home/dany/FG/Scenes/Perso/LFBO, /home/dany/FG/Scenes/Perso/LFCA, etc...

You will see this list, comma-separated, in the order.

Maybe just changing the order in the file and save? (make a backup before just in case...). For me, it works.
The Launcher was closed before and during doing this change.
