When I want to install the flightgear:amd64 package, it requests to install the simgear2.8.0:amd64 package onto my Linux Mint 13 KDE 64-bit system. But I cannot install simgear2.8.0:amd64 because I could not find it in the GetDeb repositories, could not install it from PlayDeb, and could not find a .deb file online. So, I tried to install simgear2.8.0:i386, but it wants me to install (read reinstall) libapr1, but it is already installed properly with its dependencies.

By the way, libapr1 is necessary for my Apache installation. Could you help me fix my problem?

I managed to fix this problem on the same day I posted this question. I just needed to add the games section to my GetDeb repositories in /etc/apt/sources.list through the Synaptic Package Manager.

P.S.: I know someone who says that Synaptic is unreliable, Muon is broken, and Mint Update is trash.

P.P.S.: I also know someone who does not recommend installing Microsoft Flight. I agree with him.

Happy flying! (Tux-related pun intended.)
