Hi there FG community! I created a small little script that downloads and installs everything necessary to get fgrun up and running on an Ubuntu/Debian system. Just make sure it's executable, then run it. The code would be something like this:

chmod +x downloadandinstallfgrun.sh
./downloadandinstallfgrun.sh
<enter password here> (for apt-get)

After that, you should be able to start up fgrun by typing:

fgrun


If there are any errors, reply to this thread, and I will try to get a fix in ASAP.
You can get it here: http://ubudog.net/scripts/downloadinstallfgrun.sh

Hope this helps people, I know how hard it is to get fgrun installed correctly.

I ran the script in terminal, but it didnt install fgrun.... atleast, when i type fgrun into terminal, it gives back and error.

it did download everything necessary, but i dont think it installed the files.. any way to do this manually?

I tried manualy compiling, but when i cd the directory, and ./configure, it says "SimGear not found, aborting. I tried running it even with the SimGear folder inside the fgrun-1.5.2 folder, but it gave me the same errorr...

Oops! I did some updates that fixed that error you're having, but forgot to update my site. Now the new and improved script is on my site. Should work, let me know. Just use the link in the original post.
