Is is possible to change/swap textures in Stellarium 0.15.0?

Recommended Posts

OK, So I want to swap the current Jupiter texture in Stellarium ( taken by Cassini in 2000 ) for the map the Hubble Space Telescope took in 2016. But whenever I try to overwrite the original file with the new image. I keep getting " You do not have permission, ask your administrator" even though I am the administrator. Any help or useful tutorials ?

Thanks and clear skies

Adam

Note: Jupiter.png is the actual texture in Stellarium's files.

We have one of Stellarium's developer's in our midst as a member. You could write him a PM, or just sit tight - he's likely to respond when he sees this thread. Any way - his member-name to write him a pm is: alexwolf

If anyone can help, he's the best choice. A very nice guy, too!

Have fun -

Dave

I'm sorry, but read the original phrase:

Hello Alex and thanks for responding.

I right click on Stellarium, open the file location and I'm greeted with the files to Stellarium, I open up the "textures" file, I get all the texture files currently in Stellarium. Jupiter is saved as "Jupiter.png" ( the file I attached in the main post ),  I get my new Jupiter map and I want to overwrite it over the current Jupiter map. But when I do, an error message pops up on screen with the following, "You do not have permission to save in this location, please contact the administrator of the PC" I am the administrator of my PC so I want to know if there is a way to bypass this error message and be able to change a file in Stellarium.

I think Alex means that this is a PC permissions issue and fundamentally nothing to do with Stellarium!

Have you tried "run as administrator" by right clicking rather than just opening it up as normal, I have a few apps that require this action if you want admin rights.

Once you've changed 'user' to being ' administrator', a re-boot of your computer often helps. Just check to ensure your new status remains as "Administrator."

I'd also suggest changing it back to 'User' afterwards. That will  keep a 'hacker' from gaining access to your entire computer. Do keep your computer password-protected.

Take care,

Dave

Sorry or piggybacking on this thread but just didn't seem worth starting a whole new thread for my small question!!

 Is it possible to add photos of my own observing spot? I have a view obstructions from where I view from and would find it useful to see on Stellarium.

TIN.

popeye.
