for Stellaium DO NOT use the "softpedia" link in that article

gram the current from BZR and build the qt based program

or install from your package manager

i would recommend BZR things have changed a bit over older versions
Code:
bzr co lp:stellarium
http://stellarium.org/wiki/index.php/Bzr_checkout

the current is 13.3
http://sourceforge.net/projects/stel...ources/0.13.3/

stellarium is now using a fare number of the Celestia textures
( shameless plug -- some of them are mine )

Though I always build from source. But why do you say don't get from softpedia. May I know why and reasons.
