    Where is the Oculars folder for the Linux (Ubuntu) version. I am unable to locate it. I am copying the oculars folder from my Windows Laptop versio to my Desktop Ubuntu version.

    See ~/.stellarium directory (Hint: Stellarium 0.19.3 User Guide, page 52)

    Also, I am unable to find the ISS. What sattelite web address I need to add to be able to locate the ISS?

    For example: http://www.celestrak.com/NORAD/elements/visual.txt

    Well changing the .ini file name to 'landscape' has now got it into the landscape list, but when I click on it Windows (Vista SP2) shuts the program down! 

    Could you send me your landscape and log.txt from Stellarium? Or just for experiment: please try rename "stargazers home.png" into "stargazershome.png" and change maptex name to stargazershome.png too.

  4. This trouble related to OpenSSL library in version 0.19.2 - 3 workarounds for it: a) using ssleay32.dll, libeay32.dll and libssl32.dll from version 0.19.1; b) download and using those DLL's from developers of OpenSSL or c) downloading and using beta version of Stellarium. 

    In any way proposed beta shouldn't be affected by this issue.

  5. Hello everyone!

    We plan release version 0.19.3 in second half of this month and we want to get some help of testing Stellarium.

    The extra star catalogues won't install from within the application (Configurations Window Extras tab), so I copied the cat files 5 to 8 from a previous instal (v15.2) on another laptop to the Appdata/stellarium/stars/default directory, but they have no effect on stars displayed when I run the application. When I check the Configurations Window Extras tab it is updated to 'get cataloque 9 of 9' but when I hit the button it errors with the message 'Error downloading stars 8 Error creating SSL contect ()' 

    Yes, this is known issue - https://github.com/Stellarium/stellarium/issues/786

    The problem with creating SSL context caused by wrong version of openSSL libraries within Stellarium package (It's sad, but the problem was found a week after release 😕 ). I've pushed the fix of problem today (https://github.com/Stellarium/stellarium/commit/9c87c1495b859bb83dcac17f01163dc248c6e8d9) and it will be available for testing in next beta (tomorrow/next weekend?).

    Some workaround for you: https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/681465-stellarium-star-catalog-manual-installation-instructions/

    I copied my occulars.ini file into the modules/oculars folder and initially all seemed correct, but then I noticed that the off axis display is not showing for my QSI camera, even though all the correct details are entered. I tried creating a new sensor, but the OAG overlay is still not showing.

    This is other bug, caused by refactoring the code and founded after release - https://github.com/Stellarium/stellarium/issues/784

    The fix available in beta versions.
