I wa wondering about yout initial question. F1 would have brought up the Kstar document about configuring. Looks like Alt S would have brought up the Settings menu options where the main toolbar could have been re-enabled.

I think showing a folder icon for the device manager is not a good thing. What happens if you try to save the new bar arangement? Wil ist be saved? With unity on 18.04 I have no chance!


Ok! It's the last stable build! The newest nightly build (2020-07-02T05:56:09Z) is able again to save the toolbar changes. B)

Unfortunately this procedure doesn't work: Ubuntu on gdm3 moved the whole mechanics of the gobal menu from the top line into the dropdown menu! (see my first post) There are indeed some applications that are working, but KStars seems not following the new gdm3-standard. So there is no way to bring back the menubar. (BTW I tried some older version of KStars from 2019 having sort of inline-menu that appears even on gmd3. I remember we had two menubars at that time. It would be interesting to talk to the developers about a this: Will KStars support the new gdm3 -standard?)

So after a couple of months of inactivity I switched to Ubuntu 18.04 yesterday. It was a time cosuming task, but I finally managed to port my environment from 16.04 to 18.04. I solved the cumbersome problem with the missing menubar by activating the unity display manager again instead of gdm3. (This is the same way Ubuntu Mate works!) Now KStars shows the menu as in 16.04.

Unfortunely there are some problems: Not all the icons show up a usual! If I try to configure the tool bar the device manager has - among others - a strange blueish folder-icon


Moreover it is not possible to change the toolbar. After inserting some new action icons and klicking OK nothing happens!

Who knows more?

To the devs

For more than a month I'm trying to update kstars stable on Xenial Ubuntu. Unfortunately it did not build since the last successful build in february. Currently I'm working with kstars nightly form march (Build: 2020-04-03T20:12:19Z).
Before an update, I always check the latest builds and today I had to state that the xenial builds didn't make it neither in the stable nor in the nightly version!

What's happening? What are the plans for Xenial: Are you about to leave this version?

Sincerly

For all those who want to know:

The size of the object file can be reduced with "strip". It does what it says: Discarding additional information (like symbols) from the object file (see [url=ttps://linux.die.net/man/1/strip]here[/url]).

Until now I couldn't manage QT Creator to "cmake" an "install/strip", because this requires root privileges.

I didn't think much about the desktop manager, I simply updated my Ubuntu 16.04 an I've got Bionic Beaver with Gnome3.

Perhaps I should move to "Mate"?
What are the differences between "Mate" and Gnome3?
Or will KStars be updated to support the "new" application menu of Gnome3?

Dear Jasem

I'm sorry, I have to report a remaining small glitch!! After having switched to [Ethernet] in "Communication mode" and saved that, the buttons [Serial] [Ethernet] do still not react after the second invocation of an indi-driver. It's reproducible: Launch the "Telescope Simulator", then switch to [Ethernet] with some address and port, save this configuration, disconnect and stop the driver. Upon a new start, the mentioned buttons are dead.
Please note that I'm really glad you found the bug. Perhaps I'm a perfectionist, but in my point of view this part of the drivers has to work flawlessly.

Thanks for your hint, but I'm not using KUbuntu. I installed the default Ubuntu 18.04 with Gnome. According the latest news, the developer decided to remove the old style application menu bar and replace it with the "pulldown" menu you can see in my screenshot at the right side of the [Applications] button. As far as I know, the application menu should appear there! There are indeed several application working this way.

There is an deprecated gnome extension, that brings back the "old-style" menu, but the devs advised against installing this!

So what now?

I'm feeling quite silly to ask, but how can I get back the menu line of Ktars?


I didn't find any hint so I hope you guys can point me the direction.

OK! One step further: The bug shows up in local mode only! If I connect the indiserver on the remote computer all is in best order.
What does that mean?

First, I didn't believe it either! But yes, it's true: Starting the OS (16.04 or 18.04) from zero, does it!
But only for the first invocation of the driver (EKOS or Device Manager). All subsequent calls render unresponsive Connection Mode buttons.

Some news regarding this bug!

It is present in Ubuntu 16.04 AND 18.04 and I could trace a really strange behaviour in both: As I stated before the "Connection Mode" buttons of the INDIDrivers is always working under debugging. The spooky thing is, that after the very first start of EKOS (after a new startup of the OS) the buttons are working too! But if you start Ekos once again these buttons get unresponsive! :blink:

It there a crack out there, who has more insight? I haven't got a clue.
