Can't wait to give the new release a run.  Just downloaded source and tried to compile on my RPi4
Get an error when running CMake --

Any help appreciated

"CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:218 (find_package):
  By not providing "FindStellarSolver.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this
  project has asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by
  "StellarSolver", but CMake did not find one.

  Could not find a package configuration file provided by "StellarSolver"
  with any of the following names:

    StellarSolverConfig.cmake
    stellarsolver-config.cmake

  Add the installation prefix of "StellarSolver" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set
  "StellarSolver_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files.  If
  "StellarSolver" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it
  has been installed.

Jerry's script works fine as I already posted but it installs 3.5.6 Beta.

When I try and install the latest supported build it throws an error.
Same when I try the steps on the post above by Wolfgang.

The issue seems there is no Raspberrypi OS/ Buster version of the repository to download.
 #sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/ppa


So I can compile the nightly 3.5.6 beta but not the stable release.

Any help is welcome.

As far as I know the repository is intended for Ubuntu, not for Raspbian. If you know what to do for guiding it on your own, I would recommend building from sources. If it is setup, repeating it for latest versions is easy.

I thought I did but obviously not.
I have tried downloading the source tarball and working from that but again it fails.

The RaspberryPi is surely one of the most popular platforms to run Kstars/Ekos on but every time a new stable release is made it seems we have the same issue and it takes months before a compiled working version comes available on Astroberry or similar platform.

It just seems crazy that I can happily use the nightly beta but not the stable release.

Very frustrating
