Flightgear will not start

Postby lepidas » Sun Dec 30, 2018 6:30 pm

Hi to all. I use flightgear for some months now but since last update the plane (A320) couldn't go straight with AP so I decided to remove and install again (Ubuntu 18.10).
I installed (2018.3.1) but simulator will not start from the launch icon(which used to launch the settings,location. airplane, etc).
A windows opens and stays white, that's it.
In terminal
Code: Select all
flightgear
returns
Code: Select all
command not found


Code: Select all
cat ~/.fgfs/fgfs.log

Can you install the qml-module-qtquick2 package and try starting Flightgear?

Also, to start Flightgear from the command line, run "fgfs".

Finally I got it running :D
Code: Select all
sudo apt install qml-module-qtquick2 QtQuick.Window


Thanx so much for the push :)
