Bug Reports / PixInsight File explorer date - Format (Linux KDE)
« on: 2020 February 09 16:33:39 »
Hi All
I have just moved over from the XFCE desktop environment to KDE Plasma with a complete new build and install of PI

Is there a setting in PI (or anywhere) that controls the date format in the pop-up file browser windows that PI launches?

On my machine PI displays the date differently from the file browsers, Krusader and Dolphin, I have changed the Language and Time settings via the settings manager and PI stays the same but the browsers change format as expected.
The Process Console consistently shows the PI boot time in the ISO format.
Searching the web brings back a host of KDE Localisation issues, non look easy to fix......otherwise all is good with PI!

Linux 5.3.0-29-generic (x86_64)
Language: en_GB.UTF-8 (en_GB)
Ubuntu 19.10 with KDE Plasma version 5.16.5 & Qt 5.62


Thanks for the information, re-installing the correct nVidia driver for my graphics card on my Xubuntu desktop has removed the problems re-sizing the subframe selector graph window for me. I still have problems with the PDF output though which I posted as a bug report.
It has also fixed an issue where PI would not switch focus to an image window sometimes without clicking on the header bar.

Bug Reports / SubframeSelector save PDF - the output is cropped
« on: 2019 March 04 04:17:58 »
When a Measurement Graph is saved as a PDF the resultant PDF only shows a cropped version of the graph in the measurements window.
I have tried this on my Linux Xubuntu desktop and win10 laptop, both use different PDF display programmes and the incorrect results are the same.


Hi Rick

I don't want to loose the benefit of multiple threads, not on a old machine like mine!!!

I have started to use the dx and dy pixel displacement data that is generated during star alignment between frames on my unguided imaging runs.
I copy and paste the console information into a spreadsheet and graph the dx and dy data points.
The console data has to be sequenced correctly, i/e in the same sequence as the frames are taken. So far I have generated a rough sinusoid with noise, if any of the data points are out of sequence its relatively easy to spot in the graph.
I think my graph is telling me my worm and wheel  needs sorting but that's another story.
If PI is developed with more mount and camera control this type of data is useful for tuning before issues are hidden by auto-guiding


Ok I can see the argument that the star alignment tool processing sequence does not matter (for star alignment) but there is a lot of very useful data in the process console and would be more user friendly if it was in the correct file or image order.
It's certainly a pain cutting and pasting the date back into the correct sequence for analysis
PI is very logical & robust in all that it does, this quirk seems a little odd (maybe random) to a non programmer like myself.


I have been using the star alignment data in the process console to characterise the periodic error in the worm and wheel assembly in my mount.
However the data generated in the console window is not in the same sequance as the image order as correctly displayed in the star alignment process window.
My images are ordered by file name.
I have tried prefixing my files with 01,02 etc but this does not help.
If I try a different set of files the same problem occurs, but different files are processed out of sequence.
I am running PI on Xubuntu 18.04
Here is a console output that shows files not being loaded in sequence:-

Loading reference image
Registration of 11 target files.

Is there a setting I am missing to force the order or is this a bug?

General / Re: HDR wavelets gone?
« on: 2011 November 28 12:22:45 »
Hi All
HDRMultiscale Transform was also missing on my Ubuntu 10.10 64bit system.

So I ran through the process as described by Jaun and the missing menu item MultiscaleProcessing has appeared with sub menus of Atrous, HDRM and Multiscale, but I still have the Wavelets entry on the process menu with the same 3 items......Have I missed something?



Bug Reports / Re: PI 0651 crashes on Ubuntu 64bit

Hi Juan

I've found the issue on my system, I have reset my desktop theme and PI runs like a dream again, it auto installed the updates first time as well.
If I switch back to the old theme I was running (and have run for some time) I can crash Pi every time.

Before I changed the desktop theme I ran strace to see if I could find out what was happening. When I clicked on the window close button there was a number of error messages which seemed to be around the button icons and missing directories. Please note I have no idea what I am doing here!!!!  :-[

But It made me look at the environment

Anyway Pi is back to normal

I deleted the entire PI folder and extracted into a new folder
No luck, it still crashes.

Bug Reports / PI 0651 crashes on Ubuntu 64bit
« on: 2011 January 18 15:06:56 »

I have just updated my 64bit Ubuntu 10.10 (Linux 2.6.35-23-generic) to 0651.
I simply extract all the new files to the existing PI folder (as I have done previously)
If i do a simple image histogram stretch and then simply close the image I do not get a save warning dialogue and PI crashes. I then cannot start PI by clicking on the PI icon I normally use, if I do multiple clicks PI opens up but it is instance (2)..
If I try to do the auto update it downloads after i have entered my user details and then crashes
I tried to install 0644 (I missed that version out initially) and that launches and immediately crashes.

If I revert back to 0625 PI is rock steady as usual! :D

PS I don't have any other issues with my system as far as I know


Sent as as requested to the support account.

Down-sampled in Lightroom 3.2, PI will not open,other viewers will.



The file is 70MB, where or how can I post this to you?




I have been using Adobe Lightroom 3.2 to convert some CR2 files to uncompressed 16bit TIFF's.
Unfortunately PI 1.6, or 1.5 will not open them.
I get this error message on both Linux and Windows versions of PI:-

TiFF Error (Filename) Tag 42034: Rational with zero denominator (num=0)

I tried converting the file in Lightroom 2.5 and PI opens the files ok, so it looks like Adobe have changed something, but
the TIFF files generated by LR3.2 will still open ok in any other image viewing/manipulation program on both my Linux Ubuntu and Windows XP machines
(I have tried quite a few on both platforms and the only one that complains is the GIMP but that is due to bit depth).

I can send you the files as required.



I moved and I can now open files with no problems. Thanks

There is still a minor problem though, looking at the conversation regarding GUI Effects
If I go to preferences- and click on Style Sheet/Special effects it locks up the preferences window

But at least the temp fix has got me working

Thanks again
