Flightgear 2.8 Promo

Postby sssseeee_1_1 » Fri Sep 28, 2012 5:20 am

It's good to know that FlightGear 2.8 has been released. I wanted to briefly go over how to update to it in Ubuntu Linux.

First open your update manager

Press check

Install any Updates, Some of which should be flightgear Updates.
Enjoy :D

It's a pity that this won't work because no new FG releases are uploaded to the repositories within one release.

Possibilities to run the latest FG on Ubuntu are adding PlayDeb to your software repositories or self-compiling.

Weird. I was able to get 2.8 in my update manager. I just opened it one day and it had the FlightGear 2.8 update. So I obviously updated.

Oops, that`s strange.

Even the repositories of the the brand-new Ubuntu 12.10 which will be finally released in 6 days (I think) provide only version 2.6
Probably you have activated another package source.
