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

The 2D panel of a SenecaII.

FGPanel is designed as a standalone lightweight panel rendering engine to draw 2D panels on a low-cost computer/graphic card without 3D acceleration at reasonable frame rates.

FGPanel was not part of the FlightGear 2.4.0 release for Windows. Windows users can get the executable from Jenkins.

FGPanel Live System

A complete display setup for the Cessna C172P using FGPanel.

FGPanel is now available as a Live System, a complete, stand-alone software setup, including FGPanel, (partial) FGData, Linux operating system and necessary start-up scripts. The ISO image (350MB download) needs to be programmed on a CD/DVD, USB flash or hard disk drive. Just insert the CD/DVD or connect the USB/HDD drive to your (old) PC, add an (old) graphics card, and an (old) TFT or monitor - and you've made the first step to your own cockpit home setup! The PC boots the image, immediately starts FGPanel and displays C172p cockpit instruments. Run the FlightGear Simulator on your main PC and enable the C172 FGPanel Protocol to transmit data to your cockpit panel PC.

The live CD is a freely available SUSE Studio project. It can also be cloned/modified/adapted to personal needs via SUSE Studio (web interface). Operating system is based on OpenSuSE Linux 12.1. FlightGear binaries (fgpanel) are directly pulled from the OpenSuSE build service (OBS).

More information available at the SUSEStudio FGPanel project.
