FGRun 2018.2 on Ubuntu 2017.10 airport errors

Postby CoolGames » Tue Mar 20, 2018 6:54 pm

System is System 76 laptop running Ubuntu Studio 2017.10 Artful

I compiled and built 2018.2 FGFS , SIMGEAR, FGRUN and OPENSCENEGRAPH using download_and_compile.sh.
When I enter FGRUN the airport is reset to default.
When I go to choose an airport, it only lists installed and I wanted KASH Nashua, NH so I ask for all and enter KASH to choose it.
I then press NEXT and it is showing in command line and advanced choices.
At home I download using TerraSync then disable to avoid invoking elsewhere.

If I press Previous back to choose another aircraft I loose the airport and have to start over choosing KASH.
Even if I don't make any choices the airport disappears or is reset to default which may cause restart of TerraSync
If I remember it was too slow, I have it turned it off until I am home on a faster connection.
If not I have to ESCAPE out and start over and first step is to turn off TerraSync.
At this point the airport is back to Flightgear default and blank in advanced.

have you tried using the new launcher instead of the no longer supported FGRun? the new launcher works quite well, actually... i use it all the time and rarely invoke any specialty command line scripts unless i'm doing ATC stuffs out in the middle of nowhere ;)
"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."
