I learnt that there might be some problems caused by updating KStars version after version.
To start a fresh install I need to get rid of all the KStars files and folders.
Some of them are not obvious . Where are they located ?
It would be nice if someone could also provide the function of these folders / files.
For instance, I know that the Profiles, Equipment list (Telescope, Eyepieces, Lens, Filter) and Device Manager list are stored in userdb.sqlite (In macOS the path is ~/Library/Application Support/kstars/userdb.sqlite)
Thank you

There are not too many files/folders.

1. There is the main KStars app bundle which is wherever you put It, but probably /Applications/KStars.app.
2. There is the KStars Data Directory: ~/Library/Application Support/kstars
3. There is the KStars preferences file: ~/Library/Preferences/kstarsrc
(Note that in that same folder, you might also have kstars.kmessagebox, kstars.notifyrc, and kstars.plist)
4. This is not only for KStars, but also for Cloudmakers software, there is the astrometry folder full of index files: ~/Library/Application Support/Astrometry/
5. Also not unique to KStars, but also for any KDE app, there are the translation files: ~/Library/Application Support/locale
6. Also not unique to KStars, but also for any KDE app, there are the sounds files for notifications: ~/Library/Application Support/sounds
7. Log files can also get saved by INDI into ~/.indi/ I believe

I think thats pretty much it,

Thanks,

Rob

How to uninstall completely KStars ? 2 months 3 weeks ago #27012

Hi there, I installed Kstars yesterday and it start up fine and I spent 30 mins looking at the menus etc, I then decided to update the satellite and comet data bases and initiated both downloads and it hung up. Now when i try to restart app it crashes when it states it is loading "Satellites" I have deleted and reinstalled the app a couple of times (I mean it is dragged into applications folder using installer but when launched to install itself it crashes). Then I followed the hidden paths you describe above but have not found any of the files/folders at all in those directories?? The only thing I can see upon reinstall is the Kstars app which will not install itself. Would rolling back my OS using time machine help. Or is Kstars not compatiable with OSX 10.12.6 which could be causing the crash?
Thanks Allan
