Hello, all! I'm new to this site and the whole INDI/KStars/Ekos setup. It looks fantastic and I'm excited to start using it. There is probably a quick fix for this, so I hate for this to be my first question.
I did a fresh Ubuntu MATE install on a Pi3 and installed kstars-bleeding packages. My KStars tool bar is missing all text. The radio buttons and drop downs are displaying, but no text. The text seems to be diplaying normally everywhere else in the program, just not the toolbar. As an aside, I installed KStars on my Mac and the menu bar looks fine.
A simple explanation would be that the first part "sudo updatedb" creates a database of all filenames and paths it can find in the system, the second part "locate kstarsrc" reads the database and get the filename and path to the file you specify.
The semicolon is there just to separate the two commands from each other.
Next time if no files are added or removed to the system you can just do a "locate filename" and find the specified file.
You can read more of the commands with : man updatedb and man locate
Fast and easy.

I think the real question was, why didn't they have ~/.config/kstarsrc in the first place? If KStars has been opened and it has been used, options have been saved, so that file should have been created. . . or am I wrong about that? If there was no kstarsrc file, how did that happen?
