Good news for GNU/Linux users too lazy or unskilled to compile Celestia themselves.

Munix9 has provided builds of Celestia 1.7.0 snapshots in AppImage format, currently they are provided for testing purpose. Please follow instructions in https://github.com/CelestiaProject/Celestia/issues/333 how to use and how to solve possible issues.

Hopefully this will work on my 64bit Linux Mint computer.

It works fine, but has two problems, the drop down menus display white text causing the wording to disappear in Mint plus stars don't render in any styles.
The AppImage:

The Windows version under Wine with stars as points:

Note: The computer is my 64-bit Mint computer has no graphics card.
