Thanks for your reply.
I am certainly no expert on using git and using checkout codes is certainly beyond what I have done to date.
Jerry's script did work for me and I have successfully compiled Kstars 3.5.6 as of yesterday so I think it should be OK as it's pretty close to the stable release. What frustrates me is that Windows, Mac and X86 Linux users get the stable release already compiled but we poor RPi users have to compile from source every time and it never seems easy and is always full of gotchas.

I really like KStars and enjoy using it with its always expanding features.
