Re: Re: Linux tracking software for Linux



I downloaded and installed mtrack on my RH 7.1 Linux setup and it works
beautifully. I was very pleased to see it had the squint calculation
displayed. It doesn't seem to want to bring up a help file, maybe my
download missed it.

It does NOT display doppler as far as I can tell. I'd rather have squint
than doppler, but it should really do both.

Thanks so much for writing the program. I now have it running all the time
when I have Linux booted on that machine.

The program was very intuitive...I had no trouble getting it to work with
KDE desktop, and updating the oribital elements was easy.

NICE JOB! I hope you work on it some more. 73
