Inputting latitude and longitude in Linux

Post #1by dbaker » 25.11.2018, 12:29

The Mac OS version of Celestia has a feature where you can open the Location menu, select Go To Object and are able to enter latitude and longitude for an object, and the distance from the object, and the app will zoom you to that exact location.

I am using Celestia on Linux and really want this feature, but I can't find it. I don't have a Location menu, but the User guide says Go To Object should be available in the Navigation menu - however my Navigation menu only contains Select Sun, Center Selection and Goto Selection.

Can anyone help me find this feature?

Qt backend doesn't support this function. User guide references to Gtk+ backend.
