I have seen others with this problem but I haven't found a solution.
I am trying to add my panoramic .png photo of my horizon to Stellarium. I have both the landscape file and the .png image in a folder called "paddock". The landscape file (called "landscape") looks like this:
[landscape] name = paddock author = Simon description = Simon Walsh type = spherical maptex = paddock.png maptex_top = 63 maptex_bottom = -63 angle_rotatez = -50 minimal_brightness = 0.13 light_pollution = 5 atmospheric_extinction_coefficient = 0.27 atmospheric_temperature = 10
The png file is called paddock.png.
When I open Stellarium I can see paddock as a landscape option but if I select it, the whole thing crashes - and closes. I have tried all manners of names for the image and .ini file but nothing works. I really like Stellarium but it not hugely helpful to me unless I can add my horizon.
