Hi morbli,
Can you try to install oxygen-icon-theme and oxygen5-icon-theme, "sudo apt-get install oxygen-icon-theme oxygen5-icon-theme" to see if you get the icons back ??

Hi AstroBitz,
I've just tested that once before reading the the help text for that option but my computer didn't like that :( but with my new computer it works fine :)

That was probably the only combination I never tested but it works :) So just waiting for next release.
Thank you Jasem!

Yes, I have tried many settings but it doesn't make any difference.

Hi all!

I've tested this on 3 different computers, one 32bit and 2 64bits and the result is the same. When taking only 1 image, saved it and closed it and taking another image everything is just fine, but when leaving the first image in the FITSviewer and taking another image then Kstars/FITSviewer will crash, all software installed from ppa and latest versions.
Backtrace from gdb as attachement.

Glad to help you!
You can choose to use the Xagyl protocol as it is, there is also a ascom driver available here :

Yes, I found the code in my old laptop :) and it still compiles so all you have to do is some changes to the code to fit your needs.
I almost forgot that the original Xagyl wheel have a hall sensor for every filterslot but I think that you only need to detect first slot and then adjust the array to find rest of positions by counting steps for the stepper.
Sorry for my bad coding style but I'm not very good at it.. I hope it gets you going anyway.

That seems strange, when I had this issue I couldn't get the simulator to take more than just one image and then nothing more happen.. did you try the simulator ?? One more thing, I have a SX LodestarX2 as a guidecam and a SXVR-H9 as my main cam.. maybe it's related to the driver somehow ?

Hi..

Sounds like a problem I had for a while ago, so I deleted my old configuration..
rm -Rf .local/share/kstars
rm .config/kstarsrc
rm -Rf .cache/kstars
rm -Rf .indi
And created all new configuration and things started to work again.

Hi there..

I've never tried to find a comet in Kstars instead I use NASA's horizons web interface which is very accurate

Just fill in your figures and you are ready to go :)

Thanks Jasem, I found it :) I guess this was a result of bad weather and not using my telescope for months. :(
