Excellent! Yes, I built the DMG and I think Jasem uploaded it yesterday.

Yes, you're right. Tested it several times.
Is there a way to download the complete HIPS image?


I don't know. Maybe Jasem or someone else involved with making HIPS could answer?

Poison wrote: By the way, I can reproduce a graphics glitch.
When I open "What's interesting" for the first time in a kstars session there is nothing but a white screen.
Then close and open again "What's interesting" and all seems working ok.

Now click on the "eye" icon and voila, there is the glitch.
Closing what's interesting will remove the glitch.

HIPS is deactivated.

All the best,
Oliver


Yes, I have seen this too. I am not sure what causes it because it did not do that in the past. As far as I know, nothing changed about the way what's interesting gets opened. I will look into it when I get a chance.

supernov,

Are you planning on editing any code in OS X for KStars, or is your goal just to get the most recent code? If you are interested in coding or tracking down and noting and/or fixing bugs that should be addressed, that could be very helpful particularly if you have the cmake version of the KStars build installed on your computer and can open it in QT Creator to edit things.

thanks,

Rob

The HIPS issue was fixed, and I was going to make a new OS X dmg, but Jasem is currently working on a few things that are half done right now including colored logs, improved translations, and backlash reduction in guiding. He said to wait a couple of days to make the dmg until this work is done. I'm sorry about the delay. Hopefully soon.

I couldn't finish the dmg today because there was an OS X issue with the filter manager Jasem made today and it took me several hours to resolve it. Hopefully tomorrow if my fix works on linux as well.

Yep we worked on that for almost 6 months until we got it working right. The main ones were Stephane, Jamie, and myself, but we had a lot of help.

The reason you cant really just use github is because in order to work properly on osx, a lot more needs to be installed than just kstars and a lot of files need to be downloaded from different sources and copied into the right places in order to work. However, if you run the script on the cmake version, you will have a verson that you can just use github to update and edit.

Note that currently the xcode version is NOT working due to a strange error after it finishes. There is also currently a problem with installing kwallet on os x which makes the cmake version harder to install. The kde folks are working on that I believe.

Ok I will test it and if it works, make a new dmg today.

Yes, I just tested it. I see what you mean. I think this is like the previous HIPS issue where it was looking strange when users selected "none" in different languages. I believe he fixed the issue, but this is probably related to it. I will notify Jasem. Thanks!

Rob Lancaster replied to the topic 'How to run Git and PPA versions on same RPI3' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

Maudy, you can build and run different versions of kstars on the same computer under different prefixes. The Mac build script that we made last year and that I have extensively modified since then can build KStars 3 different ways in 3 different folders. On my Mac, I always have at least one development version that. I can edit and test in Qt Creator and another Kstars build that I know to be stable, typically from the last dmg that I built and was posted on the website. If you run the script, those correspond to the cmake version and the craft/emerge version.

So yes, I don't think there is any problem with having different kstars builds on the same computer. I believe I have had up to 5 on my Mac at one time. In my opinion, you don't really need to use a VM unless you want to see what it looks like on a different operating system.

Yes, I have done this before as I recall. You can test it really easily using the simulator. Just run KStars with the simulator on one computer and connect to the indiserver remotely from the other computer. You should find that if you take the photo from one computer, it shows up on both. If you test it first using the simulator as I said, you won't have to wait till dark, and you can make sure everything is working and configured correctly on both computers. (And if you were planning to have folks watch on the other computer, you avoid embarrassment ;-)

Ok, now I did a few times zoom in and out using the overlay an run into the same "problem". And as supernov mentioned zooming in or out a bit fixes it.

If what you guys are seeing here is that when you zoom in and out the HIPS image stays the same or lags a little, but then later after you zoom in and out and wait for a minute, it seems to now work properly when you zoom, I think that might be just that you don't yet have the HIPS images for that zoom level downloaded yet. The HIPS images are cached on your computer, but they are downloaded and loaded on demand as well. So the first time you look at an area of sky at a zoom level, it wont have the image(s) ready and needs to load them, but later if you come back to that area and/or zoom level, the image(s) will load almost instantly from the cache. Does this sound like what you are seeing? Increasing the cache size, zooming in and out on regions of interest, and a fast internet connection should all help if it is the problem.

Thanks,

Rob

Nmac,

The screenshot you posted looks more like what happens when hips hasnt fully downloaded all of its data yet. I saw that before I built up a hips cache. Now i rarely ever see that. But I think that issue is different from the one posted by poison.
