Problem buidling kstars on Mint 18.3 #60118
I have a Linux Mint system that was pretty far behind in updates. I'd been building kstars/Ekos on it for a few years up until maybe 6 months ago but not certain. Since then, I could not get kstars to compile. As my other (newer) systems worked fine I decided to upgrade to 18.3 (Xenial). Unfortunately this did not help, and I am getting the same error which is below. I forced a re-install of all dependencies and this did not help. I also re-downloaded the git repository and started fresh with no success.

Any ideas what is causing this and how to fix it?

This may be a problem with building on Xenial systems. I upgraded the system to 19.3 (Bionic) and I am now able to build kstars successfully.

Any idea what might have changed in the code that requires Bionic and up?
