Missing text in KStars tool bar #15018
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.

Any pointers on how to fix this?

Hello, can you try:
sudo apt-get install oxygen-icon-theme

Under KDE, it looks fine but under other desktop environments it might be different.

Hi Jasem,

I have just installed a laptop with Ubuntu-Mate 18.04.3 LTS 64 bits. I have the same problem, no menu bar only icon bar. It is specific to Kstars-Ekos. Oxygene icon theme is installed.

So I did have this happen once,

Edit the file ~/.config/kstarsrc

In there I think you will find something like "menubar = false"

Try deleting that line

You must have a kstarsrc file. That is how kstars stores all of its settings. It is matter of finding it.

is it located here?
~/.kde/share/config/kstarsrc

Hello,

I look for on all the system and find no such file. Kstars runs well except the menu bar missing.

Kstars V3.3.6

Hi,

Can you try this in a terminal window : sudo updatedb ; locate kstarsrc

Bingo maxer ! It is the right solution.

Could you please explain me what I did with your commands ?

The file was located in home/user/.config.
I am quasi sure that it didn't exist before.
Thank you

So it was exactly where Rob said it would be in this post

That's great :)

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?
