I installed the standard Flight Gear (flightgear) flight simulator on Ubuntu. I want to use it to test graphics cards.
However, I am struggling with it after it launches, even with the latest version.
I am able to see the scenery at the airport nicely. But I cannot get the airplane to launch to fly!
I tried referencing the online help. I am able to toggle interesting things, like getting the propeller to turn on. Setting the brakes with B seems to do nothing. Also, m seems to do nothing, as recommended in the Flight Gear on-line help.
I would appreciate some simple steps (with a mouse, and keyboard - no joystick) to get this standard Cessna aircraft off the ground. Please also let me know what airport to select.
Some additional links that I have found are as follows:
Thank you to the community in advance for any help!
