Installation notes

  • IMPORTANT: If Gaia Sky crashes on startup, remove the file $HOME/.gaiasky/ if it exists. That should fix most problems
  • You need the JRE 7+ installed on your system in order to run Gaia Sky.
  • The Windows and MacOS X installers come bundled with the JRE 1.8.0_92, which will install only if another compatible JRE is not found in the system.
  • If the application crashes on start or after the configuration dialog, remove the file $HOME/.gaiasky/ (linux/osx) or C:\Users\$username\.gaiasky\ (windows). It is possible that the old configuration file is not compatible anymore.
