Differences between stellarium, stellarium-lite, and stellarium-bin:

  • stellarium builds Stellarium from their official source code, with full features
  • stellarium-lite also builds Stellarium from the source code, but without GPS and telescope control features
  • stellarium-bin (this AUR) extracts official AppImage instead, which contains all dependencies itself

NOTE: For Qt5 version, see stellarium-qt5-bin.

When should you use stellarium-bin?

  • Pursuing minimal dependency usage from pacman
  • Don't want to build from scratch (although it's automated via pkgbuild)
  • Want the same thing in the original AppImage

When should you NOT use stellarium-bin?

  • Want to run a Qt6-based Stellarium
  • Want a smaller package
  • Want to use dependencies provided by pacman, in order to share them with other installed packages

PS: Before the installation, please run the following command to download the public key. :)

gpg --recv-keys BF38D4D02A328DFF

Or run makepkg with --skippgpcheck to skip this.

You can use yay or paru to make it easier.
