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
