Wayland book

“Wayland is intended as a simpler replacement for X, easier to develop and maintain. GNOME and KDE are expected to be ported to it.”

I found a link to a book, that explains the technical details behind Wayland. Seems to be a draft, but there is a lot of content for anyone who happens to be interested in this.

This on Mastodon by Newsbot.

See links below for details. I have included a link to x.org foundation for legacy.

#KSTARS – ASTRONOMY PACKAGE

KSTARS is a Linux based astronomy package. For a free software package it has a lot of features and downloadable catalogues of stellar objects.

When you first load up the package you may want to view the constellation lines. I worked out how to do this, but am including some info below to help users change the line colour from the default light grey as it may be easier for people to see the lines.

If you click on Settings (menu) —> configure —> guides

You should get the following

I have checked the boxes to constellation:-

• lines
• boundaries.
• names

If you then click on the colours tab at the side

I have set the colour to yellow. This does stand out, probably a little too much. However you can set it to the colour of your choosing or leave as the default grey.

Hope this helps
