I just saw that this week there will be a solar ISS at my location. So I wanted to have a look at that in kstars (running kstars-3.5.1-1765_gd15e198bd).
It doesn't show a single satellite
So I went for Data->Updates->Update Satellites orbital elements. I checked in ~/.local/share/kstars, and there are indeed a lot of new tle files.
But When I try a Find (Ctrl-F) and select Satellites as type the list is empty. Even after a restart.
So I went for Configure->Satellites. Show Satellites was checked. But it seems in the individual list all were deselected. I selected ISS, pressed OK (because 'Apply' was greyed out) - list was still empty.
I finally had to switch off 'Show Satellites', then 'Apply', then select Satellites, select 'Show Satellites', then press 'Apply' again.
Now the Find window does have entries. But the way to get there was highly non-intuitive...... Maybe someone can cross-check if that indeed is a general issue, or just here on my system?

My kstars is not showing satellites. There are lots of .tle files in /home/bob/.local/kstars but they all say the data is available from a NOrAD site and updating the satellite positions via kstars just replaces those empty files.
