If you see messages like No network access point or No network and you are using WIFI then you likely suffer from a Qt bug. In some versions the Qt framework (the library swift uses) is broken. Qt has promised to fix that. However, you can try the following workaround. In your swift installation directory you will see a directory bearer, just remove this directory and try again.
- Warn of XSquawkBox conflict
- XSwiftBus doesn't work properly if xsquawkbox is also installed. Ideally XSwiftBus could detect this situation and somehow tell the user "please disable/remove xsquawkbox".
- For reference, the conflicted state is: XSwiftBus is available in the plugins menu, and the moment you hit "start server on session bus", then the swift gui shows "Simulator plugin loaded: X-Plane", and Settings/Simulator/Loaded goes from "No plugin" to "Support for the X-Plane simulator via the XSwiftBus plugin" but nothing else works: the gui's "sim" light remains off, the radio and transponder are not synchronised between GUI and x-plane; the aircraft type does not fill in even if you change it after connection.
- Bluebell CSL models sunken in ground -> Solution: Install the BB_IVAO_vert_offsets fix (simply copy the files from the BB_IVAO_vert_offsets folder over the original ones) and restart X-Plane"
Not validated: Installation in Application failt, but in XPlane directory it works.
The following steps should not be necessary anymore. They are kept for reference and will be removed in the future.
A bug in Mac OS packaging currently blocks launching any swift application on Mac OS. Run the following steps to get it working:
Create config file with unique machine id for dbus by running
sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/var/lib/dbus echo "eec798facbde2ad4b0c9c5b15900eabe" > /tmp/machine-id sudo cp /tmp/machine-id /usr/local/var/lib/dbus/machine-id
Run the launcher via
cd /Applications/swift-0.8.0/bin/ swiftlauncher.app/Contents/MacOS/swiftlauncher --bootstrapurl https://datastore.swift-project.org/shared/
All other applications can be launched via the launcher GUI.
