What works

The program install and works. All menus and buttons work.

What does not

Each time the picture of the moon is updated, the black background overwrites all of the menus and buttons and information. They are still there and still active. If one passes the mouse over them they show up and can be used. New information appears, but is overwritten by the black screen when the moon image is updated. VERY, VERY irritating. The program can be usefully used as is if one is patient.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Some of the menus and tabs were tested to see that they appear properly but it was difficult to test their subfunctions since they keep disappearing every two seconds. Everything that was tested worked.

Additional Comments

This is an important program as there is no similar item in Linux. It is very useful to amateur astronomy and it not being used could be a stumbling block for someone trying to convert to full Linux use.
