On Debian/Ubuntu you can install the paparazzi-jsbsim package.
sudo apt-get install paparazzi-jsbsim
If you don't have that in your sources, see Installation/Linux#Adding_the_APT_repository
Compile JSBSIM from source (with specified date to make sure it works and API hasn't changed)
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/jsbsim co -D "23 Feb 2015" -P JSBSim cd JSBSim ./autogen.sh ./configure --enable-libraries --enable-shared --prefix=/opt/jsbsim make sudo make install
When building a NPS simulator target, the build system will first try to find JSBSim via pkg-config and fall back to /opt/jsbsim.
If you want to install to a different location, change the prefix to your liking. And you need to add a <makefile> section to your airframe file and add the correct flags to point to the include files and libraries, depending on where it is installed.
With the default installation to /usr/local/, this would look like
<makefile location="after"> nps.CFLAGS += -I/usr/local/include/JSBSim nps.LDFLAGS += -L/usr/local/lib </makefile>
- Install the JSBSim libraries onto your system. This should already be installed with paparazzi-tools, but if it isn't:
$ sudo port install jsbsim
It uses code from the cvs repo, so it should be the most up-to-date source.
- If you get an error like "undefined reference to `pcre_compile'", edit file conf/Makefile.jsbsim, look for the line that begins with LDFLAGS and add -lpcre, e.g.:
LDFLAGS += $($(TARGET).LDFLAGS) -lpcre
