Hi. Flightgear next will now make use of osgXR if available to enable some basic VR support, otherwise it will try to build its own static built-in version of osgXR which would implicitly depend on OpenXR.

So 3 possible options (in order of preference):

1) add 'libosgXR' to depends so that the osgXR shared library provided by (which pulls in 'openxr') is automatically used (cmake ENABLE_VR and SYSTEM_OSGXR will both default to ON)

2) add the cmake option -DSYSTEM_OSGXR=OFF and add 'openxr' 'libglvnd' to depends, so flightgear will attempt to build its own static built-in version of osgXR (which would depend on OpenXR (and GLX)).

3) add the cmake option -DENABLE_VR=OFF to prevent the implicit dependencies, but obviously disables any VR support.

Edit: I installed SimGear-git that should give me the 2020.4 version and now I am getting a new error.

it was my fault ... my xorgproto was an old xorgproto git version ...

GDsouza commented on 2021-08-31 06:21 (UTC)

@TheHitMan That header is provided by xorgproto. You should have that installed as a dependency already.

@dreieck Done, thanks for the help!

dreieck commented on 2021-05-02 10:05 (UTC) (edited on 2021-05-02 10:53 (UTC) by dreieck)

git needs to be added to the makedepends.

Thanks for maintaining!

dreieck commented on 2021-05-02 09:44 (UTC) (edited on 2021-05-02 10:53 (UTC) by dreieck)

Can you change provides=('flightgear') to provides=("flighgear=${pkgver}")?

@Woodhousezb: I get 2020.4*-version.

Thanks for maintaining!

Woodhousezb commented on 2021-01-31 11:34 (UTC)

Yesterday building this produced a 2020.4 version. Building today gives a 2020.3 version, and thus a downgrade?

flatwhatson commented on 2020-10-13 11:53 (UTC)

@Woodhousezb I think you need to update your simgear-git before building this one.

Openscenegraph34 does not exist in the AUR nor in the official repos as far as i can tell. I have requested the simgear-git maintainers fix this. For now before building just edit the simgear-git PKGBUILD manually.

acxz commented on 2020-01-18 01:46 (UTC)

I cannot install this package, error:

@satscape: You need to patch some weirdness with Boost. There's a working copy here >>

@simona, Could you please attach an error log from the build?

simona commented on 2019-01-11 23:08 (UTC)

do not install :-(

I've emailed the maintainer to try and get him/her to update the package. Until then there is a working PKGBUILD here:

commented on 2011-11-04 22:12 (UTC)

simgear-git and flightgear-git have now switched to cmake, marking out of date.
