AstroDMx Capture – Known Issues

Ubuntu 22.04 – All Versions of AstroDMx Capture

Important: This issue has been fixed in the latest version (

26th April 2022

I have had a number of bug reports associated with running AstroDMx on Ubuntu 22.04. I have tested this and can confirm that AstroDMx does not start under this configuration. It is, however, very easy to fix this problem.

This particular problem is caused by Ubuntu 22.04 providing newer dependence which are incompatible with some dependencies supplied by AstroDMx. The dependencies in question are those that provide specific functions in the standard C++ library.

In order to run the software under Ubuntu 22.04, use the following procedure.

cd /usr/local/AstroDMx_Capture/lib

Once the above procedure has been completed, AstroDMx should start normally. This problem will be fixed in the next release of the software. The latest version of AstroDMx Capture can be downloaded from the main downloads page.

As usual, please feel free to contact me directly if you need further help.
