Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

FlightGear Mac OS X Launcher

From FlightGear wiki

Caution  This launcher does not work on OS X Yosemite (10.10) or later.
The Mac OS X launcher.

The FlightGear Mac OS X Launcher was a graphical front end for FlightGear which was included in official Mac releases from FlightGear 0.9.10 to 3.2. It is not compatible with OS X Yosemite (10.10) and later because some libraries required for it to work were removed by Apple (see ticket 1521). For this reason, it was replaced by the FlightGear Qt launcher in FlightGear 3.4 and later.

Launching FlightGear without launcher

Users who have OS X Yosemite or later, but who are still on an older version of FlightGear without Qt launcher, can either:

  • use the command line (Terminal.app) to start the simulator. Open it and issue the following commands:
cd /Applications/FlightGear.app/Contents/Resources
./fgfs.sh
