This addresses a number of astrometry issues and adds functionality
- The Astrometry Conf file option was being ignored on Linux so the user thought they were setting it but were not.
- The internal conf file option is now available on Linux. For awhile now, KStars on Linux has been using the internal conf file without permission
- This update allows the conf file editor to now work on Linux too, which adds tons of flexibility.
- Users can now create multiple directories for conf files wherever they choose
- Users are now told beforehannd and are prevented from downloading files to nonexistant directories and directories that are read only.
- Users can now specifically choose which directory index files are going into and get a report of what is installed on each
- Users can also get a report of all index files installed in all directories
- Adding/changing a directory now in the conf file is easier with a file browser.
- Try creating a new installation on Mac and Linux with no conf file
- Try adding other directories to the conf file both using the editor and the plus button in the conf file editor
- Try changing other parameters in the conf file and saving.
- Try selecting different locations in the index file downloader and downloading/deleting files
- Try folders that don't actually exist to make sure it lets the user know and prevents the download
- Try using the Internal Conf file and then try using an external one
