Bug Description

It is not possible to turn off pulsars plugin in the same session : no icon is available in the tool bar for this purpose.

Workaround : In configuration window,

I typically use 4:3 monitors and my bottom toolbar is getting quite crowded and threatening to fall off the right side of the screen. Will the addition of the Pulsars and Quasars button cause corruption or problems?

Anyhow, Stellarium is impressive and on the right track!

Maybe the Quasar and Pulsar buttons could be put on the left side or on the top? Or as part of the viewing options menu.. Just thinking outloud tonight.

Sorry for so many responses, I don't know how to go back an edit a posting.

What do you think about making and combining Pulsars, Quasars, Exoplanets, Supernovae visibility toggle icons all on its own menu bar? And what about being able to drag that bar around?

As Stellarium continues to grow, It will be time for a third bar for all them new icons and functionality we're going see!

Throw the nebula visibility camera icon in there too. Last post, I promise.

I would really like this program to work for me. I have been working with Windows for almost 20 years and with them pulling support next year on XP I am finally ready to change. What I really need to know is how to get a tool bar up in Zorin 6.3.
Thank you for all of your hard work to make things like this possible because I am on a disability pension and can't afford all of the upgrades and new things that are available now. I just want to be able to use my old computers, such as they are.

Thank you
Brian Gray

Brian, I think Stellarium already included to list of applications for Zorin OS - you need check package with package manager.
