Jsbsim

Installation

Debian Package

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

From Source

Compile JSBSIM from source (with specified date to make sure it works and API hasn't changed)

 cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@jsbsim.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/jsbsim co -D "12 Jun 2012" -P JSBSim 
 cd JSBSim
 ./autogen.sh
 ./configure --enable-libraries --enable-shared --prefix=/opt/jsbsim
 make
 sudo make install

If you want to install to a different location, change the prefix to your linking. 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">
   jsbsim.CFLAGS += -I/usr/local/include/JSBSim
   jsbsim.LDFLAGS += -L/usr/local/lib
 </makefile>
