No speed control for surveys (judging from screenshots in the user guide)?

All mission commands are available. Click Menu option on each item.

Just tried the Linux AppImage on ubuntu 16.04, segmentation faults galore.

How do I get that panel to show up. On mine I only see the "H Planed Home position" and "S Survey" ? I've clicked all over the place and can't seem to find that panel.

@Andreas could you provide details? I frequently use the AppImage on Ubuntu 16.04 without issue.

OK, downloaded the AppImage and chmoded it to executable. 

First run, it gave me an error about some missing library (I think libespeak1 and from my limited understanding of AppImages, this is the kind of thing that shouldn't be happening with AppImages). I installed the library and it ran. It immediately detected my 3DR radio on USB port and connected to the vehicle without me having to do anything. I started browsing the menus but loading of maps when changing zoom levels was hideously slow. I think my first segfault was in the map screen (I could be wrong). My last segfault, after which I rage quit, was drawing a shape for a survey. I had a bunch of segfaults in between.

I 'm running KDE (Kubuntu 16.04) with the nouveau driver on an Nvidia card.

Here are the docs for how to use the Plan view: Click the Add tool (+) to add waypoints to the map. Then click the command name (Waypoint) to change the command to something else.

@andreas My guess is a problem with the video driver. Linux tends to be very stable since there are so many users on it. Video Driver OpenGL support can be flaky which in turn causes problems with ui crashing.

Internet search on "nouveau OpenGL crash" seems to show a high count of issues. I'd try a different driver.
