osgearth script improvements
|Reported by:||hamish||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by )
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.

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.
