Corrupt dialog boxes

This issue seems to affect ATI cards. Please see this page for details (and a screenshot of what it looks like).

The "Stop script" button freezes Stellarium (Windows)

Description: Pressing the Stop button in the Configuration/Scripts dialog causes Stellarium to freeze. Reported on Windows XP, Vista, and 7.

Discussions:

Status: Fixed in development code.

Solution: Use development version, or wait for next release (sorry!). We fixed it only just after the freeze for 0.10.2.

There is no Text User Interface (TUI)

Description: The TUI feature (used in planetariums) is not present in versions from 0.10.0 (beta) to 0.10.2. According to Fabien Chéreau, this feature should be recoded as a plugin. (source) As of March 2009, there is a development version of the plugin in the SVN repository (link).

Discussions:

No landscape rendering

Description: Stellarium sometimes doesn't show the landscapes properly in Ubuntu Linux. This is easily fixed: The problem is located in this file ~/.config/Trolltech.conf (~ means /home/yourname so it is a file in a hidden map in your home file. In Nautilus you can unhide files and maps by pressing CTRL H together) You can delete the file and a new one is created when Stellarium is restarted. All should be working fine from now on.

This only applies in version 0.10.2. In version 0.10.4 the same happens sometimes with landscaped, but that needs another solution.
