Fatal error, accept and FGcrash.

Get a copy from a friend of the missing Time table folder. Header error when unrar. FG seems to be okay, no more error from time table.

Now it won't start and displays the message "UNABLE TO OPEN TIME ZONE FILE `/usr/share/games/flightgear/timezone/zone.tab`. The TIMEZONE folder doesn't exist. That's frustrating, any suggestions?


Can you run "sudo apt reinstall flightgear-data-base"? That shouldn't download anything, as it would already be in your cache.

I reinstalled desktop PC with brand new LUbuntu 18.04LTS, then installed FG2018.1.1, manualy installed qtdeclarative5-qtquick2-plugin and qml-module-qtquick-window2. All is OK, I made 3 test flights with Concorde LZIB>LIMW>LOWI>EGLL without any glitch.
Fly high, fly fast - fly Concorde !

By PPA -> http://ppa.launchpad.net/saiarcot895/flightgear/ubuntu I update te new FG2018.1.1 version.
When I try to start a fly it gives me this message into a pop-up:

Unable to open time zone file '/usr/share/games/flightgear/timezone/zone.tab'

I dont know how to resolve that issue... Can someone kindly help me solve this problem?

Well, I tried to give this command line:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall flightgear-data-base

Now it works nicely!

Here, there is a copy of the timezone folder, that contains the missing file.

Path is Flightgear/Timezone.
