Hi Alex

I have downloaded the latest 0.19.2 version of stellarium, i can`t add comets to the list.

I had an earlier version of stellarium that i could add comets to. I had to re-instal the latest version after my Hard drive died. I tried the plug-ins add comets route, there are no comets to add like the older version. when i click on the add MPC list of observable comets,and import orbital elements in MPC format. It then says download list of objects from the internet. I tried to do this but the bar in the bottom right of the screen is stuck at 0% and does not download anything.Capture stellarium.PNG

Any help would be appreciated

thanks

Did you select individual comets or try to download all of them ?

Hi Davey,

I didn`t see an option for individual comets, my old version of stellarium had a list of individual comets that could be added into the comet search option. I never had to download anything. All the tutorials on youtube on how to add comets are from several years older versions of stellarium, so i thought i would ask here.

 

thanks

IIRC after one update there were a lot of comets added and when I tried to just download them all as I'd done  previously the readout stayed at zero so you now have to select only the ones you want to download because I think the database has every comet that ever was in it.

Dave

You should get to this screen then tick the ones you want to download

Hi  Davey,

In my oder version of stellarium i would get the objects found/import data page.

With this version i don`t get that page. I get to this page and press the import orbital elements in MPC format,

And then this popup appears saying download a list of objects, but it stays at 0%. 

Also could this be because i don`t have a windows activation key for windows 10 yet? Although other apps i have seem to work.

What version have you got, I'm using 0.18.1 working on Win10 64bit, works ok, don't think Windows registration would affect it.

If you have a later version you could try uninstalling it and installing 0.18.1 as that definitely works as advertised.

Trying to download the whole comet database would take a long time even if it's possible so it would probably stay on 0% for a while before anything happens.

Hi Davey,

The version i have is 0.19.2 i tried uninstalling and downloaded it again with the same result, when i click on the import orbital elements the page takes 5-6 goes to change, i am on windows 10 64bit version.

 

Do you have a link the older version please?

Don't know if older versions are on their site somewhere, I've got a download of 0.18.1 so if you PM me your email I'll see if I can send it to you.

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.

Hi Alexwolf,

Thanks for your reply.

I am not sure how to use those workarounds, ssleay32.dll, libeay32.dll and libssl32.dll 🤔.

I found the 0.18.1 version suggested by Davey-T, and it works ok with adding comets from the list.

I reinstalled the 0.19.2 version again (4th time) and it now works ok too 🙃, so must of been a glitch in the initial setup.

thanks for your help
