ok, I think I understand the issue now. Somehow when I ran the build, it didn't run the macdeployqt step correctly. There are files missing from the plugins folder. The qt.conf file is missing, but the files it tells the system to look for in plugins are missing too. I will check on the build computer and see why this didn't work.

Thank you for your help. I should be able to fix this now.

oh! it still might just be qt.conf. the plugins directory is not Plugins, its PlugIns

[Paths]
Plugins = PlugIns

I don't know why but it seems to be missing in the build I made last night. Weird. It has been automatically in kstars every time I built it for a very long time! Now it is suddenly not there.

or possibly in /Applications/kstars.app/Contents/Resources

That is actually where it was before.

Can you try putting a text file in the folder /Applications/kstars.app/Contents/MacOS called qt.conf with the following contents:

no, I think I might have found a lead based on what you said via a google search.

So the crash log isn't helping because it isn't obvious like the libraw error that was so clearly spelled out.. Can you run KStars from the command line in a terminal window and get the text that prints in the terminal or get a kstars log of the session?

Does this crash happen immediately on startup or do you do something first. This doesn't look like either of the issues I just addressed.

Yes, there were a couple of different issues. One issue is that the libraw version that craft is building is for some reason different than the libraw version that homebrew is building for INDI. So there was a version issue and one version was not getting included in the app bundle. I don't know why they want to build a different version with a different name, but it has caused a bit of a headache. The libraw issue would cause an error if you try to take a raw image with a camera. The other issue was that the qml files for the mountbox and the whats interesting window used to be included in the data directory, but now they are embedded in the app. This would cause an error when starting either INDI or the Whats interesting window. I am hoping that the dmg I posted a half hour ago addresses both of them.

ok, please try again. It should work now. Sorry there have been multiple changes in the last couple of days that have been messing up my build script. First, there were some major craft changes. Then there was an issue with different versions of libraw. Then there was an issue with the qml directory getting changed. All of the changes will be good in the end, but temporarily, they caused some headaches.


Thanks,

Rob

remember that kstars is not doing the actual solving, astrometry.net is doing the solving. So any change in the behavior could be due to some change in the kstars code or it could also be due to updates in the astrometry.net code as well.

You may not want *all* of the index files to be installed because then that is more for it to look through. Upload a few images to nova.astrometry.net and see which ones it uses to solve your images. You can also use the rule of thumb that you need the index files with sky marks from 10% of your frame size to 100% of your frame size. You don't need the smaller or larger ones outside that range. But more index files is not always better.
