osgearth script improvements

Reported by: hamish Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: minor Milestone: OSGeoLive8.0
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: 4.5, osgearth

Description (last modified by hamish)


while testing the packages I've come up with a few comments/improvements which would be nice for the Osgearth installer script:

  • mention in the quickstart that it might not like running in VMs (OpenGL req'd)
  • and that a network connection is needed for WMS and OSM overlays to work
  • add a desktop link to the simple Blue Marble example, then it can be in the menu and get a bit more exposure.

thanks, Hamish

see also ML rehash during 4.5rc testing, March 2011.

OpenGL issue seems to have gone away in modern VMs, other noted issues still remain, especially lack of a menu entry/desktop icon file, which would be easy to do.

specifically for VirtualBox, the user must take a second step after running, and install the VBox additions pack. Once the additions are installed, OpenGL is typically available. This should be explicit somehow.
