Jasem,
I have built INDI from source, as per instructions (ARMHF Linux).
There is no instruction I can find on how to run kstars.
As a much older version of kstars came with the OS, typing 'kstars' runs the old version.
Installing PHD2 you run ./phd2 from the directory but what is the equivalent for INDI?

The first link contains all the instructions for building KStars as well. What's the problem exactly?

The problem is not with the build.

I just don't know how to run kstars after the build.

After you run sudo make install, the new kstars should be installed to /usr/bin and so when you type kstars, it should launch the one you just installed. If not, you have another KStars lurking elsewhere in your system. Type which kstars to find out where it is running from.

Jasem,

Thanks, I can now see that there must be an issue with the install not overwriting the older copy.

I'll rename it and try again.

Regards

Paul

Jasem,

I've tried again but it still isn't adding an executable to that directory and I cannot find any other occurance.

There do not seem to be any errors.

kstars is now okay, I wasn't thinking clearly - I bet you hear that all the time :)
I needed to build kstars and not just indi.

Now kstars is running fine but no Ekos options appear.

Do I need to rebuild Ekos after building Kstars?

phomer60,

What are you building kstars on?

Ekos is built as part of kstars, you don't have to build it after you build kstars.

If I have an old version of kstars from the distribution I am using I unistall it first using
the systems package manager.

Follow the instructions Instructions
to build indi on the system first, then build kstars.
Look for any errors in the kstars build with respect to things missing.

If it builds, run it with kstars at a promt and look at the help window to ensure it is the version you just built.

The Ekos icon is the little observatory on the right of the icons.
If it is not there ensure that you check that Settings -> Toolbars Show-> Indi toolbar is ticked.

Clear skys,

I built INDI first and the Kstars.

In the Kstars configure option under FITS, it shows Xplanet? but no INDI or Ekos. Settings, Toolbars Shown shows INDI and Telescope Toolbars are both ticked but nothing appears in the toolbar.

It is definately running the correct version.

I have not tried to unistall any previous version but I did rename the original executable and it is not running.
