No pictures (discussed before)

Post by matthys70 »

:oops: Okay ... working fine for years under Windows, now I wanted to try under Ubuntu.

Some specs about what I'm running before I start:
Ubuntu 21.04 (x86-64)
Mono JIT compiler version 6.8.0.105 (Debian 6.8.0.105+dfsg-3 Mon Apr 27 19:25:46 UTC 2020)
Virtual Radar 2.4.4.36598

So I do not have any pictures like marker, Silhouette or Flag.
This seems to be a know issue related to mono version?

However what I do not understand is the link it generates.
If I inspect the marker I see:
http://<server>:8080/VirtualRadar/images/web-markers/top/Wdth-80/Hght-114/hiDpi/Rotate-100/Alt-30/CenX-40/WTC-Medium-2-Jet-Selected.png

However if I manual enter this, I will 'see' the correct marker image:
http://<server>:8080/VirtualRadar/images/markers/WTC-Medium-2-Jet-Selected.png

Notice the change from web-markers to marker?
Because I know there is a folder images/markers and NOT images/web-markers.
However on Windows there is also no images/web-markers but work fine with the original link.

I also read there seems to be a 2.4.5 preview version which may solve this problem?
But I have no clue where to find the mono preview ....

Again .. sorry if this item as asked before.

Thanks,
Matthijs

I'm in the same situation. I read on the FlightAware forum about a script that will allow you to easily install VRS on Linux. You can choose from v2.4.5 up to v3. Here's the link to the excellent project: https://github.com/mypiaware/virtual-ra ... stallation

I first installed v2.4.5 and pictures were showing, but aircraft markers were not. Then I installed v3 and the look was much better. Markers were showing but no pictures. Apparently it has to do with AVG and Malwarebytes. Look for Removed on this page. https://www.virtualradarserver.co.uk/Preview.aspx

Yes, I also found this Preview Installers and Tarballs page and downloaded the v3.0.0-preview-6 Linux / MacOS Mono Tarballs.

Works fine for me with this preview version, so solved the problem. Now hope a stable version will be out soon.
