Stellarium Upgrade issues


New Member
The astronomy app Stellarium has just received a major upgrade (from v 0.10.5 to v 0.10.6).
I experienced issue with the program fonts not rendering correctly with my older ATi Radeon Mobility X1400 video card.
Some SiS video is affected by this bug also.

The issue is related to the default OpenGL2 rendering implemented when Stellarium is

Fix is simple. Go to Start>All Program>Stellarium and use the shortcut labeled "Stellarium (no GPL2)".

Create a shortcut to this shortcu on the desktop or add --safe-mode to the target field
in the desktop shortcut created by Stellarium during install.
.....s\Stellarium\stellarium.exe" --safe-mode
Note space between exe" and switch.
