KFreeFlight is a flightgear gui-frontend. KFreeFlight can launch it with the most common options without taping a very long command line.

Some clicks and you can fly away.

Why KFreeFlight ?

Because all program I find doesn't have the common options I use. (NMEA for example) or can't be set up for using with an "exotic" GNU/Linux Distribution (like GENTOO or LFS) or a FlightGear source-based installation.

WARNING : the options you enter are not verify by the program and can render FlightGear unstable with bad options (ex caracter in place of number, etc...)

Knows bugs

1 -Some aircrafts haven't pixmap because they're in a directory witch a different name (ex seafireIII in the spitfire directory)

2 -When call reload config, sometimes, spaces appears behind the value in the QLineEdit.

QString::stripWhiteSpace() seem solve the problem. Contact me if it appears again.


To build under Linux, follow these steps:

make install

if you have an exotic kde installation (like me on gentoo tape
./configure --prefix=Path/to/KDE/Directory like /usr/kde/3.4/ for example.
