Instead, it has documentation in the GNU Info format; see below.
stellarium is a free GPL software which renders realistic skies in real time with openGL. It is available for Linux/Unix, Windows and MacOSX. With Stellarium, you really see what you can see with your eyes, binoculars or a small telescope.
When you first launch stellarium, it will use the file default_config.ini from /usr/share/stellarium/config/ to create config.ini into $HOME/.stellarium.
The configuration options from this file are quite self-explanatory. Some configuration files examples are in /usr/share/doc/stellarium/examples.
- -v, --version
output version information and exit.
- -h, --help
display command usage and exit.
