TOPIC: ST4 CAMERA RISING TECH compatble INDI??

ST4 CAMERA RISING TECH compatble INDI?? 1 week 2 days ago #27305

That's pitty. I need to get it work with rasbperry Pi.
With Linux Ubuntu it should work with toupcam drivers. But these drivers are only for x64 and x86 arch. not ARM

Are you sure, it works.
It never worked for me.
The toputek download site does not list GCMOS camera under supported models in Linux list.

I've got a rebadged version f the same camera - USB product id is b134
To get it to work with ToupLite I had to replace libtoupcam.so with a version provided by the retailer. Also added a line to the udev rules file for product id b134.
Also got it to work with oacapture. Once again I had to replace the libtoupcam.so provided with oacapture with the retailer supplied one.
If you want to you could try by downloading from www.myastroshop.com.au/guides/prostar/do...ToupLite-1_0-x64.tgz
You have to expand the download, uninstall any current version of ToupLite (from /usr/local/ToupLite run the uninstall script), then install the downloaded version. I found the ToupLite app installed from there just hangs. So I copied the two .so files from /usr/local/ToupLite then uninstalled ToupLite. I then reinstalled ToupLite from the ToupTek website then overwrote with the two files I saved. And for good measure edited 99-toupcam.rules to add product id b134. After that ToupLite worked.
For oacapture, after installing I replaced its version of libtoupcam.so with my saved version and it too started to work.
I'm wondering if the oacapture code could be adapted into an INDI driver for the ToupCam camera? It is written in C. Indeed, if the author could be persuaded to support INDI drivers from oacapture it could be a win-win. oacapture gets a much bigger range of cameras to use and INDI can support the various Touptek / Altair / Rising Tech cameras.

That's good to know. oaCapture support also ARM architecture so I think it would be good solution for ToupCam, Altair and also Rising Tech camera users.

I have SDK from RisingTech and it seems drivers are written in C so maybe it could be used with Raspberry Pi. I can send it to developers of INDI

I've bought the 224 version last year, good little cam for the price.
here my question to the seller :
Me - Great little cam. Any chance you release the source of your driver, or provide arm version of library ? (raspberry pi...)
Seller - we putted the SDK in CD for your reference, you could check the CD
Me - thanks, but it contains only compiled libraries for conventional PC / x86_64 : i don't find anything for ARM devices... this would be great
Seller - I am sorry, We only has this kind of SDK

My cam is now on flymarket...
Good for Windows users B)

Apologies for any confusion as I was responding to sk_vishnawath's issues with the ToupTek downloads. The ToupTek drivers are only available for x86 and x64 but it is possible to get them to work on those platforms on Linux with a bit of messing around. Short of snooping the USB stream and reverse engineering a driver there is no way to get them to work on ARM devices.
