    I have a Meade LT 8 goto scope, which I simply cannot seem to get to work with the stellarium software on my computer; my laptop runs on Ubuntu. My Celestron scope works just fine. I have tried all of the 3 different device models. Are there separate drivers that I can download for linux? I am at a loss...

    If the Meade LT 8 uses the same control protocol as earlier autostars it should work.
    However first make sure the telescope control plugin has been activated and that the cable to the telescope is correctly terminated and connected to a COM port. If you are driving the COM port from the USB make sure a suitable USB/COM adapter is in fact compatible and has its drivers loaded.

    I have not seen the LT8 but I can control my LX200 and my ETX125 OK from Stellarium on Ubunto 8.xx thru 12.04 at least once the plugin is loaded.
