OS Windows XP: When downloading and "installing" additional star data files by
Stellarium they are stored in a subdirectory of <user data="">. I would like
Stellarium to find them in another place. How can I do that? Can I use a
special "key=value" in config.ini?
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
For that matter, I'd like to relocate all files to a single directory, config
files, data files, plugins. This would make stellarium portable!
You can use the "--user-dir" command line parameter to set an alternative path
to the user directory.
Ohh wow! That is just so cool. As cool as re-assigning directories can be..
Reminds me of the personalized tech support you used to get in computer stores
of the 1970's.
This effectively makes Stellarium portable for me. So thanks for that info.
I am now using this: "C:\Program Files\Stellarium\stellarium.exe" --safe-
mode --user-dir data2 as my command line.
And data2 is the additional directory I made inside C:\Program
Files\Stellarium. data2 now contains ALL the files previously in the other
user directory, C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application
Data\Stellarium plugins, configs, settings, solarsystem.ini,
starsconfig.json, oculars, telescopes, everything.
Looking back into the 10.2 documentation I see it right there on page 26!
Where's the facepalm icon?****
