Hello! Nice to see that someone is trying to make a good GUI for FlightGear launching, I wonder, why Flightgear's programers do not care about it?
So, I have a problem with your launcher (on OpenSuse linux)
It gives me this message in konsole:
Quote:/usr/share/yaflight/languages/
Failed to open /version for read: No such file or directory
Directory /Aircraft doesn't exists
Empty hash

and window with:
Quote:Can't create airport index cache
Check you permissions

And, it is strange this days to use fixed list of screen resolutions, why you don't use randr or something?

Hello,
I'm currently not able to test directly on a OpenSuSE environment so I really need help from users like you to improve automatic setup. That's why I really appreciate your feedback! :)

The first problem seems to be related to the "built-in" paths yaflight search for flightgear root path. Can you tell me which is the default root path of the FlightGear installation, please? I mean where the rpm-based installation of FlightGear places directories like Aircrafts, Airports, Astro, Docs and so on.

The second one should be directly connected to the first one: solving the first should solve it cascading, because yaflight will be able to build the airports index.

I think you should be able to workaround this issue editing manually the configuration file ~/.yaflight/conf.ini, setting up something like this:

[APPSETTINGS]
FGDATADIR=/usr/share/games/flightgear
FGFSBIN=/usr/bin/fgfs


I've already planned to integrate an easy way to do it via the gui itself, but I had no much time to work on it.

About screen resolutions, it's just a matter of portability and time to work on it :)
But I like your suggestions, so I'll work on improving screen resolutions support into the next releases.

Regards

OK. I Upgraded to latest build, tried to add thees lines to config file, but still get same error. and, there must be FGFSBIN or FGFGFSBIN?
Then I added Aircraft and Airports directories and an empty file version in root / directory. Now konsole is "happy", but window with "Can't create airport index cache Check you permissions" still appears. I added rw permission to user, but nothing happened, still same window, and I can't recreate airports cache.
Program ignores some of your environment settings. And here I can't help, your source code is to difficult for me, I'm not a programmer :)

Don't worry, your feedback is still usefull to me and I'm working to fix this issue related to the flightgear autodetection features provided by yaflight (ported from the old yaflight series).

Thank you for your time, hope next release will better fit your needs.

Forgot to reply to the FGFGSBIN question: there was a typo in the code, fixed in 0.99.14.
With version 0.99.14, if flightgear is now automatically detected, yaflight should show you a basic configuration dialog where you can specify the equivalent of the --fg-root option and the fgfs path.
