FGo! is a simple and fast GUI front-end for FlightGear, written in Python. It takes a slightly different approach than any other similar application.
FGo! combines a simple graphical interface, which allow users to select an aircraft, airport, runway, park position and scenario, with a text window where it is possible to add more advanced command line options that will be passed to FlightGear. This feature allows FGo! to keep a simple, yet powerful design.
Everything one needs to know, in order to set up and run the application, can be found in FGo!'s README file.
This program requires no installation, but Python (with Tkinter and PIL modules) and the Tcl/Tk library need to be installed prior FGo!'s first run. All of them should be available in the repositories. In Debian based distributions you may be required to install these packages: python, python-tk, python-imaging, python-imaging-tk, tcl8.x and tk8.x.
It may help to rename the file fgo in the root of your FGo!-Installation to fgo.py. Now you're ready to click and fly!
