OPERATING SYSTEM

There is currently no alternative reliable enough to run Stellarium360 aside Linux.
MAGEIA with KDE is perfect for what we want to do and offers advantages over other distributions. For instance, forcing stellarium360 being fullscreen and launching videos with mplayer without any flickering or disturbance on screen. 

You will need a decent computer with a Nvidia graphic card >GT400 or any graphic card compatible with OpenGL4.3 or up.
Intel i5 and GTX750 or up preferred.
Now SpaceCrafter can run on recent ATI and Intel graphic chipsets.

How to install it on Xubuntu 18.4 LTS ?

Unzip the folder into /home/planetarium/ (or ~/ if you have defined an other user)
CTRL+ALT+T
cd spacecrafter-pro-master (or the folder that you have created)
mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release
make -j8
sudo su
(type your root password)
make install
