How to install X-Plane 11 on Linux


X-Plane 11 Beta is here!

Available as demo version, or a full version at: http://www.x-plane.com/  

X-Plane development pages: http://developer.x-plane.com/

Updated:
From the X-Plane 11.00 beta release notes: "Linux no longer requires the libc++ runtime to be installed for the apps to run."

Not updated:
I'm running X-Plane 10 on Linux 16.04 machine. When I downloaded the X-Plane 11 Installer and double clicked it - nothing happened. When I tried to run it from the terminal, I got a message for missing libraries:

"error while loading shared libraries: libc++abi.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"


Here is what worked for me:
Copy/Pase ot type these two command lines in the terminal, and after that, try to run the installer and it should work:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install libc++1


I also have the libc++1 (version 3.7.0-1) installed (using Synaptic), so if these two command lines won't work - try to install the libc++1 with Synaptic.


The VSKYLABS Payware models will be checked thoroughly with X-Plane 11, and will be upgraded as soon as possible to meet with X-Plane 11 standards.


The rest of 2016 will be dedicated to upgrade, improve and refine the VSKYLABS Payware models to the highest standards.

  2. X-Plane 11 seems to have the same problem:
    ./X-Plane 11 Installer Linux: error while loading shared libraries: libc++abi.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    Still the same even after I have installed libc++1 via terminal or Synaptic (I tried both installation method):
    - sudo apt-get update
    - sudo apt-get install libc++1
