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 a stub. You can help the wiki by expanding it.
Note  This article contains outdated instructions still referring to the 2.12 integration branches. Meanwhile, those branches have been updated for 3.x - and developers are exploring the possibility to get this committed into mainline for the upcoming 3.2 release.

These should be the public links to the flightgear / osgEarth repositories (note that latest development is found in OsgEarthNext branch)

Use this version of osgEarth:



  • You already have working branches of SG/FG and FGData, you only need to add the simperative branches as remote tracking branches
  • $SG_SRC, $FG_SRC and $FG_ROOT must be clean checkouts, commit/stash any unsaved work and check out next/master first.

Building the osgEarth plugin

  • clone the repository:
    git clone -v -b 2.12-OsgEarthIntegration git@gitorious.org:fg/flightgear-osgearth.git flightgear
  • create a separate build directory
  • configure via CMake, set -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX matching your OSG/SG/FG installation path (not needed if you installed OSG/SG system-wide)
  • run "make install" (to run a parallel build, pass -j x, where is x the number of cores available/to be used)
  • next, build SimGear


Switch into your cloned SimGear repository, make sure that it is in a clean state (commit/stash any changes, switch to next)

## add a new remote alias 
git remote add simperative  git@gitorious.org:fg/simgear-osgearth.git

## fetch all branches
git fetch simperative

## check out a remote tracking branch named topics/osgearth
git checkout --track -b topics/osgearth simperative/2.12-OsgEarthIntegration
  • run make -j4 install
  • switch to your FG_SRC directory


Switch into your cloned FlightGear repository, make sure that it is in a clean state (commit/stash any changes, switch to next)

git remote add simperative  git@gitorious.org:fg/flightgear-osgearth.git
git fetch simperative 
git checkout --track -b topics/osgearth simperative/2.12-OsgEarthIntegration 


git remote add simperative git@gitorious.org:fg/fgdata-osgearth.git
git fetch simperative
git checkout --track -b topics/osgearth simperative/2.12-OsgEarthIntegration
