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

This article is incomplete. Please help improve the article, or discuss the issue on the talk page.

This page is intended to host various start scripts to set up environments to smoothly run FlightGear on various systems, eg. to set the graphics driver straight or run various helper programs, like terrasync or Atlas. Everybody is invited to contribute theirs. Update: Please sign yours, so anyone knows whom to turn to for help

Bash scripts

Simple start script to set up nice, comfortable surroundings for flightgear with an nvidia card. Will run Atlas and terrasync for you. Paths may need to be set of course --Raazeer 19:11, 8 June 2009 (EDT)
