Cannot get FG to run

Postby cj75s » Mon Jan 06, 2020 7:44 pm

Hi,
I recently had to re install my system. I run Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on AMD A6-6400K APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics × 2 with 8GB ram and over 90GB hdd space left.
I did have Flightgear 2018 3.2 installed and it ran fine. Now after having installed the 2019 version it just refuses to run. any suggestions?

1. where did you get your FG from? a PPA? which one? exact URL please...
2. what does your ~/.fgfs/fgfs.log file say when you try to launch?
3. are you using the built-in --launcher?

"Why not?" said Gurder.

no clue... the OP never responded to my questions...
