Hi

Does anyone know if a later production version of fgfs has now fixed this problem permanently?

The 2019.1.1 release candidate has it fixed. The issue will remain fixed in future releases, but we've had some issues delaying the releases of 2019.1 (scheduled in February) and 2019.2 (May). You can download the release candidate here.

I have developed a local server to supply METAR data to flightgear
It's only a few lines of code!
see my wiki page at http://wiki.flightgear.org/Local_metar_server

...and it still doesn't work with Ubuntu. v2018.3.1. And before you suggest upgrading, there is no upgrade available for Ubuntu FG. Latest version is 2018.3.1

For those using a Ubuntu (or Debian) OS, follow the other thread in Graphics for the new install for FG2019.2.0.

Pirate tested and approved.

It is the fix, but not mine. It was the persistence of legoboyvdlp that helped with the fix.

Just to point out. I have avoided this issue by simply downloading the latest version of Flightgear 2019, and bingo - METAR is working fine again. I would not be up to the sort of fix suggested
