This is my favorite GUI text editor for Linux, I use the Windows version all the time too. I also covered this topic here.

I'm using Mint Cinnamone installed on virtual machine VMWare. The instruction helped me to adjust my mouse scroll wheel speed. I set the value to 6. Now it's comfortable to use the mouse. Thanks a lot!

Stellarium forms a three-dimensional photorealistic image of the sky in real time and shows what can really be seen with the naked eye. 

 

Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.

The Stellarium is not intended for high-precision calculations or predictions of eclipses on the principle of the ephemeris.

However, it is ideal to prepare for the observation of the sky to the naked eye, through binoculars or a small telescope. Just set your coordinates and go!
