Install FlightGear Flight Simulator in ubuntu using PPA
The goal of the FlightGear project is to create a sophisticated and open flight simulator framework for use in research or academic environments, pilot training, as an industry engineering tool, for DIY-ers to pursue their favorite interesting flight simulation idea, and last but certainly not least as a fun, realistic, and challenging desktop flight simulator. We are developing a sophisticated, open simulation framework that can be expanded and improved upon by anyone interested in contributing.

Please disregard my earlier comment. I found the correct info here:http://desktoplinuxreviews.com/linux-tips/ubuntu-linux-tips/install-flightgear-flight-simulator-2-12-in-ubuntu-13-10-13-04-and-12-10/
I wish the developers who post articles here would actually read the comments so they might update or correct data which is causing problems.
