Re: Qt4 GUI: localization bugs (linux and other platforms) f

Hi refsteff, Thanks for your precious help on debugging the localization code. I've added i18n support to the qt4 version of Celestia, but since I'm on windows exclusively, I can't track the linux bugs. I've been personnaly building the ui.h files using the qt integrated ui compiler: uic -tr _ addbo...

infinite mouse feature for Celestia Qt4

There seem to be more and more forum members compiling the Qt4 version of Celestia. Moreover, the level of feedback from the devs list is currently very low. So, I think, like Andrew, that it might be a good idea to provide some patches for testing here. So here we go with a first one which adds an ...

Chris,

I've never noticed this flashing issue when using the Lua tools.
Could you please provide a script example that makes it happen ?

Re: compassBox and refraction

Finally, indeed the user-define values can be placed inside the config.lua for either the LUATOOLS or the LUAPLUGINS, but this assessment should be matter and must have the permission of Vincent, since he is the "boss" here. Massimo, I haven't tested your code yet, but it's good to read t...

Re: Lua_Edu_Tools_1.2beta8.zip and Celestia-Gnome

Hi Vincent, you may have read already in our CM thread that I had no problems running your lua_edu_tools 1.2beta8 under OpenSuSE 11.2 Linux with Celestia-gnome.SVN (r. 5136). Hence this is evidence for NO Linux specific PATH problem. I suspect however that you did essentially NO systematic testing ...

Hi, Sorry for not answering earlier, but I've been running a 39°C temperature for quite a few days. Unlike summer which had only lasted a couple of weeks here in France, we've been facing quite a rude winter for more than 4 months, with all its nice viruses.

Re: Unwanted translation in scripts

Hi Jo?l, Strings get indeed translated in scripting messages. I had to remove the extra blank space after "Earth" to reproduce this, though. That means that all strings like "Earth" or "Real time" which belong to the translation list will get translated if they're passe...
