has anyone tried Stellarium in LMDE?

I've used it in Ubuntu Maverick & unlike the rest of the OS, worked really well.

In LMDE it's the opposite - Youtube & iPlayer for example works very smoothly, whereas Stellarium is slow & jittery.

When installing Ubuntu, the OS offered up a couple of drivers for my videocard (an Nvidea G86), although installing LMDE didn't give an option.

Anyone any idea where I need to start?

Yes, Mint's Debian spins are quite different than the Ubuntu spins.

I have only one suggestion, many use them :

Yes, I've got stellarium installed on LMDE, version 0.10.5. Doesn't seem slow to me, though I'm not sure what you mean by slow and jittery. Maybe you have a slower computer?

From stellarium FAQ site:
" I experience very slow rendering, very low framerates on my computer.
This happens when hardware rendering is disabled. If you have a 3D video card, make sure that your OpenGL drivers are installed and up to date."

So, my frame rates as shown on stellarium when I run it show around 18 ~ 20 FPS. Care to post yours? :)
LMDE (Release 1), tracking debian testing, Kernel 3.14.1-686-pae i686 (32 bit), MATE & Enlightenment;
Plays (and rescues system) with experimental and sid repos on another partition with Cinnamon & Gnome3, if grub boots nice that is.
