Saturn and Titan 4.2.1   1 comment

There is a bug fix release for Saturn and Titan:

  • Saturn: the filter for saving parameter files referred to .npf files (Neptune parameters) not .spf files.
  • Saturn: changing inner/outer colour selection now affects the picture displayed. The changes were registered but the picture was unchanged, one way to update the picture was to select a different fractal type and return to the original fractal type.
  • Titan: parameter theta was displayed in the summary as zeta.
  • Titan: the Compasses fractal formula displayed in the summary was missing a z from the second term.
  • Versions for both programs upped to 4.2.1.

Three of the bugs are typographical and were missed just by “failing to see”. Failure to see a mistake is all too easy, often when text has been written you know what you thought you wrote and that is what you see even when it has blatant errors in it. Similarly when tackling cryptic crossword anagrams, sometimes, they just will not unjumble themselves and at other times they are solved with the greatest of ease.

The remaining bug was a feature that simply wasn’t tested.

  1. After trying to install “Saturn Titan” I had the following error:-

    configure: error: Could not find a version of the library!

    So I tried “./configure CXXFLAGS=”-O2″ –with-boost-libdir=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu”

    This resolved the boost error, but I then gott a Qt4 error.

    So I tried “./configure CXXFLAGS=”-O2″ –with-qt=/usr/lib64/qt4/bin”

    However, this did not resolve the problem. After a bit of investigation I tried:-

    “./configure CXXFLAGS=”-O2″ –with-boost-libdir=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu –with-qt=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt4″

    This seemed to do the trick. Hope this helps!
