kstars installation broken in armbian. was created by myxlflik

I installed the full INDI/Ekos/Kstars suite in armbian. It did not give any errors when I installed the packages, but when I run kstars, I get the following:

The file citydb.sqlite could not be found. KStars cannot run properly without this file. KStars searches for this file in following locations:

/home/john/.local/share/kstars
/usr/share/xfce4/kstars
/usr/local/share/kstars
/usr/share/kstars

It appears that your setup is broken.

I have confirmed that citydb.sqlite is in the usr/share/kstars directory. I haven't done a lot of research on this yet, but I wanted to know if anyone else has run into this problem and has an idea what is going sideways. My initial thought is that it could be a missing environment variable or something like that. Please let me know if you have any ideas.

Thanks. That was helpful. The following command fixed the issue for me:

sudo apt-get install libqt5sql5-sqlite

I think we should probably modify kstars to make this a dependency so it is installed if it's missing.

That is interesting. It was a fresh install of kstars in Armbian and it did not have that package installed. It didn't give me any warnings that there were missing or broken dependencies when I installed it.

I had the same experience today. Installing libqt5sql5-sqlite addressed the problem. Rock64 running Armbian Ubuntu 18.04.
