This page lists bugs and other issues specific to Stellarium 0.10.2 that are known to the community and/or the development team. The purpose of this list is to provide solutions and information about common problems, please report new bugs to the bug tracker.


Dialog windows are rendered incorrectly (ATI video cards)

Description: Some of Stellrarium's dialog windows (i.e. the ones accessible through the left menu) are rendered incorrectly, making them unreadable. (The effect has been described as "out of phase"; see the links below for screenshots.) This issue seems to be limited to computers that use ATI graphics cards.


Solution: Update your graphics card driver to its most recent version. Several users have reported that this fixed the problem.

If you have this problem, please add your details to this list so the development team can get a picture of what is going on:

OS Video Card Driver version Notes
 ??? ATI Radeon X300/X550/X1050 Series, RAM 128 MBytes  ??? Details from astrohobby's forum post
Vista 64 ATI  ??? jose1dav's forum post

The "Stop script" button freezes Stellarium (Windows)

Description: Pressing the Stop button in the Configuration/Scripts dialog causes Stellarium to freeze. Reported on Windows XP and Vista.


Status: Fixed in development code.

Solution: Use development version, or wait for next release (sorry!). We fixed it only just after the freeze for 0.10.2.

There is no Text User Interface (TUI)

Description: The TUI feature (used in planetariums) is not present in versions from 0.10.0 (beta) to 0.10.2. According to Fabien Chéreau, this feature should be recoded as a plugin. (source) As of March 2009, there is a development version of the plugin in the SVN repository (link).
