at long last a painless flight gear


at slackbuilds
there is a complete set of slack build scripts that tacks care of the dependences for flight gear
start building with plib and work your way up to fgfs
the only disappointment is that runfg source is broken

note
you have to try flying the uf0 it's really fun
and it doesn't pull to the left but it's a bitch to land
because it can fly under ground

Rob,

I've used that very SlackBuild and it works very well. My biggest chore now is to get my joystick working so I'm not flying with the keyboard. Then I need to start loading some of the cool new planes I downloaded.

try js_demo to see weather the joystick is working or not
then try using fgjs to write a configuration file for you
both are installed as part of flight gear

edit
this might help
/usr/share/FlightGear/Docs/README.Joystick.html
good luck !

Cool!

My joystick is working. Now I just need to customize the controls. This is, from what I can tell at least as good as MS Flight Simulator 2000.
