    Hi

    Why is there such a big difference between ISS location in gpredict to the same on heaveans-above.com. I always looked at heavens-above.com to see the ISS from my location and this was everytime realy exactly. But not in gpredict. The location and the  future passes are completly different. My location is 47.48N 8.53E in both programs

    Any hint's

      Juerg,

      Are you updating the TLE data regularly? Hint: Edit->Update TLE->From Network.
      Due to the low altitude, the orbit of the ISS is changing quite a lot and the data has to be updated frequently, e.g. once per week.
      If you right click on the satellite and select the info entry (the first one), The Epoch time tells you when the data last has been updated.

      There is no update TLE in Version 0.6.1. It's the original Version in Feisty. I am looking for a new one.

      Tnx

        Juerg,

        On Ubuntu, try to install the following packages (including their dependencies):

        gcc
        libglib2.0-dev
        libgtk2.0-dev
        libcurl3-dev

        And in any case, uninstall the old version that came with ubuntu to avoid any potential conflicts.

        By the way, you don't need to use sudo when you build, if you install it in you own home directory:

        ./configure --prefix=/home/juerg/gpredict
        make
        make install

        Then, gpredict will be installed to /home/juerg/gpredict/ and the executable will be in the bin subdirectory.
        I hope this helps

        Alex
