I am currently running Stellarium 0.11.3. What files must I change to upgrade to the new version using APT or Synaptic? Or is this tarball only?

You need to enable this repo
It should already be in your list, but disabled by default. Reload & you should see the stellarium upgrade available.
After you install stellarium it would be wise to disable the testing repo again before the next time you do a full update.

Because of the way Warren set up preferences/pinning in Mepis 12, I think you might need a '-t mepis' to that command to get it to install the 0.13.3-1mcr120+1 package from the M12 testrepo.

Code: Select all

apt-get install stellarium -t mepis
We don't need to do that in MX-14, but you do with M12.

When you enabled the testrepo did you reload the repo lists with a 'apt-get update' ?

I'm pretty sure the syntax should be

Code: Select all

apt-get install -t mepis stellarium
Edit: seems the either way works. Good to know!

If you know the exact version, (apt-cache policy <package>) another way is to specify it.

Code: Select all

apt-get install stellarium=0.13.3-1mcr120+1
