FGo! allows you to launch FlightGear from a GUI (Graphical User Interface).
FGo! allows you to easily select the aircraft, airport and scenario. What
really distinguishes it from other such applications is the text window
allowing you to write any other, more advanced command line options that will
be passed to FlightGear. This is similar to editing the .fgfsrc configuration

fgo (1.5.5-2) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Florent Rougon ]
* Remove debian/menu which is redundant with debian/fgo.desktop, as per
[ Markus Wanner ]
* Add pgpmode=none to the watchfile to avoid a warning.
2015-06-24 - Florent Rougon <f.rougon@free.fr>
fgo (1.5.5-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
* Add patch reset-button.patch.
This patch fixes the logic behind the Reset button. It was obtained
from upstream in December 2014 (developed for the yet unreleased
Python 3 version of FGo!, but is useful here as well).
* Refresh fgo-config.patch.
* Add dh-python to Build-Depends and fold the field to improve
* Remove useless dependencies on tcl8.5 and tk8.5. As far as I know,
FGo! doesn't use any of them directly. It does use Tkinter, which is
what the python-tk dependency is for.
* debian/rules: adapt to the new location of icon files in the upstream
source (share/icons instead of data/pics/icons).
* debian/install: install all icons into /usr/share/icons/<res>/apps.
* debian/install: use relative paths and normalize syntax.
* debian/links: adapt the link target for /usr/share/pixmaps/fgo.png.
* debian/rules: make sure docs/INFORMATION_FOR_PACKAGERS does not get
* debian/rules: install the symlinks to
/usr/share/games/fgo/data/help/help_$lang directly into
/usr/share/doc/fgo/README instead of /usr/share/doc/fgo/docs/README
(docs was otherwise empty).
* debian/rules: don't install duplicate README_$lang.gz files into
/usr/share/doc/fgo (redundant with
* debian/fgo.desktop: merge improvements (mainly translated fields) from
new upstream file share/fgo.desktop. Reorder the fields to be as close
as possible to the upstream-provided file (for easy comparison).
* Remove debian/docs and adapt the override_dh_installdocs target of
debian/rules in order to fix the
/usr/share/doc/fgo/docs/README/README_* previously-broken symlinks.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no change needed).
* Fix indentation of continuation lines in the Uploaders field (convert
the tabs into spaces).
* Update the package description and add README.Debian to clarify what
users should do about TerraSync support.
2014-05-22 - Markus Wanner <markus@bluegap.ch>
fgo (1.5.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* Add Vcs-* fields for the new collab-maint git repo.
2014-05-22 - Markus Wanner <markus@bluegap.ch>
fgo (1.5.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
[ Florent Rougon ]
* New upstream release (closes: #741410).
* Update fgo-config.patch (most notably using the correct paths for
--fg-root and --fg-scenery). Closes: #670966.
* Install the 'data' directory under /usr/share/games/fgo.
* debian/copyright: update to comply with
(closes: #741411).
* Create a 32x32 version of the icon in XPM format, install it in
/usr/share/pixmaps and declare it in debian/menu (closes: #737870).
* debian/fgo.desktop:
- update the Version field to indicate the version of the Desktop
Entry Specification, not FGo!;
- make the icon reference more robust (no path and no extension);
- fix a typo.
* debian/links:
- use the correct icon path (under the 'data' subdirectory of
/usr/share/games/fgo and choosing the icon with best quality);
- remove the leading slashes.
[ Christopher Baines ]
* Change standards version from 3.9.2 to 3.9.5
* Change maintainer to Debian FlightGear Crew
* Move myself to Uploaders and add Florent Rougon
* Add a Keywords entry to the debian/fgo.desktop file
[ Markus Wanner ]
* Update Build-Dependencies: use python-pil.imagetk instead of
* Add myself to Uploaders.
