Hi Patrick,
is it possible to have Catgen always built as a standalone external executable, also in a default skychart build, like varobs and cdcicon?
I can provide an icon and appdata and desktop file if needed, so it can be used as standalone GUI app or directly by CLI and installed separately (for example, I could make a subpackage in Fedora to enable only catgen installation to users).

Hi Mattia,

I make the change to build catgen part of the standard makefile.
I also remove the build of varobs_lpv_bulletin because the AAVSO no more publish this files for years.

I really appreciate if you can make a PR with the desktop files and icon. For now the program icon is the one used for Setup/Catalog.

Sure, I will submit a PR in the next days.

As I'm not a graphic, I've taken some free vector graphics online and modified them a bit by adding the CDC comet to maintain a reference to the main program... let me know if the attached images display fine for you.

Thanks to Mattia work the catgen program is now fully integrated with the standard skychart package:

This will be available starting with the Monday 17 beta version.
