I've built a new INDI setup based off the git sources (under Gentoo, using the overlay) on my laptop to get things going again.

I had some success tonight getting the Mount (G11), Dome (maxdome), Filter Wheel (Xagyl) and Camera (ASI1600MM-Cool) connected. the first 3 seemed to be working fine as well.

The camera however, had problems. It would not set a temperature, and would not take a preview image:
org.kde.kstars.ekos.capture: "Capturing image..."
org.kde.kstars.indi: ZWO CCD ASI1600MM-Cool :  "[ERROR] Exposure failed after 3 attempts. "
org.kde.kstars.ekos.capture: "Capture failed. Check INDI Control Panel for details."
org.kde.kstars.ekos.capture: "Restarting capture attempt #1"
org.kde.kstars.ekos.capture: "Capturing image..."
org.kde.kstars.indi: ZWO CCD ASI1600MM-Cool :  "[ERROR] Exposure failed after 3 attempts. "
org.kde.kstars.ekos.capture: "Capture failed. Check INDI Control Panel for details."
org.kde.kstars.ekos.capture: "Restarting capture attempt #2"
org.kde.kstars.ekos.capture: "Capturing image..."
org.kde.kstars.indi: ZWO CCD ASI1600MM-Cool :  "[ERROR] Exposure failed after 3 attempts. "
org.kde.kstars.ekos.capture: "Capture failed. Check INDI Control Panel for details."

I tried to enable debugging for the driver, but when I hit the button it would flick to enable and then flick back to disable immediately - you could see the options/checkboxes appear briefly lower on the panel during this time. I tried another device, but its debug worked fine.

So, to be able to give better information on the other problems, I need to get a fix for this debug problem. Any ideas?

Some ASI USB2 cameras are known to violate the USB2 protocol by using a too large bandwidth. This means that these camera's don't work on Linux distros with too new kernels. Not sure if your camera is affected as well. Can you capture an image with it using some other application than KStars/Ekos?

I will look for something to try to use the camera under linux besides ekos to see what happens. This should be USB3 btw.

(I dual boot with windows, and that captures fine, so the hardware link should be ok, so this is linux specific).

If it is USB3 then, indeed, it should work with Linux. I use an ASI120MC-S (USB3) camera on Linux for guiding without any problems whatsoever. FYI the USB2 doesn't manifest itself on Windows.

I rebuilt the driver and noticed there was some code updates.

It's working better now - I can set the temperature. And I think preview is not giving an error. I can't see the image though so I must have something wrong with the viewer setup.

No, it didn't work, the preview is doing this:
org.kde.kstars.indi: ZWO CCD ASI1600MM-Cool : "[DEBUG] ASIGetExpStatus failed. Restarting exposure... "

I just rebuilt the driver code on 16.04 and tried it and it worked with 120 and 172 cameras. Try using a different USB port or cable.

Will do. I had a thought about that after I finished last night. Although it's fine under Windows, maybe it's a bit more finicky under Linux.

Ok, I got it working without changing the cable at all.

I had forgot one thing that tripped me up in the past: when using the laptop on battery power, it does something to the USB ports that reduces their effectiveness. I had to do something special in Windows to stop that happening. I'll search to see if their is something similar for Linux.

Giving the laptop AC power - problem went away - at least with the camera. Will mark as solved.
