Greetings,

It has been about a year since I was working with Jasem Mutlaq (knro), James Taylor (u2pilotjt), and several others on trying to create a good Image for using Ekos, KStars, and INDI on a Raspberry Pi 3. At the time, the Forum grew very large including thousands of posts. In the end, I ended up just creating a list of my steps, James Taylor ended up writing the beginners guide to Ekos on Raspberry Pi www.indilib.org/support/tutorials/169-ek...-complete-guide.html , and Jasem ending up developing the awesome StellarMate Astrophotography Tool. www.stellarmate.com

The other day, I was configuring a different Raspberry Pi and I was going back through my steps while revising them and I thought it would be nice to automate the process.

The idea is that you would get a fresh Ubuntu-Mate installation on a microSD card, put it in, set it up, and then run this script.

Please tell me what you think, in particular, if there are any other things that need to be added. Thanks!

A wonderful idea!
INDI evolves and can do almost everything.
I think that many people will be built on many machines other than RaspberryPi, so such scripts are welcomed.
(Linux is harder to install applications than other environments ..)

Useful function as hub (ser2net, hostapd) If PHD 2, oaCapture is automatically processed as an option, I think that a complete solution will be completed.

If the automatic update script of the installed application is enclosed, it is more perfect.

So yes, I have had a problem with creating an ad hoc network on my Raspberry Pi for awhile now. When I did it last year, I came up with a way that worked where I selected hotspot option instead of adhoc. That worked great for months, but now my mac does not want to connect to that network when hosted from the raspberry pi anymore. So the hostapd program is a solution to this I assume. I will need to try that. Do you have any advice or configuration guides for the adhoc network using hostapd? I can easily add it to the script after I learn the series of steps to set it up.

The other program you mentioned, ser2net, what is that used for?

The VNC Server that I install in the script already is RealVNC Server. Are you suggesting a different one?

And the other one you mentioned, oacapture, are you suggesting that we install that too? You mentioned that it is used for PHD2. I haven't used PHD2 in my imaging routines since I use the KStars internal guider, is it needed in order to use PHD2 or does it make it work better?

Good evening
I am using RaspberryPi 3 as an access point by hostapd and dhcpd.
ser2net can send tcp-ip serial.
When these are combined, the same function as Skyfi is realized.
In addition to those set in RaspberryPi 3 and OrangePi

· SMB server
Send and receive data
· VNC server
For remote control
· Qdslr server
Convenient digital camera remote

About celestial body
· PHD 2, Linguider
It is mainly using PHD 2.
Ekos built-in guide module is also excellent, but it is listed on today's request list
RaspberryPi 3 processing is very heavy because video playback adopts a style that loops still images (fitted files). PHD 2, Linguider can guide the playback of the stream, so I think that it is better to use it now.

oacapture is an option for planet shooting. Ekos Live View shooting is amazing if the equipment is compatible. In that case it is not necessary.

I will subsequently send hostapd, dhcpd, ser2net configuration file.

It is the larger setting file.
I am using it with OrangePi.

hostapd
/etc/network/interfaces.hostapd
/etc/network/interfaces
/etc/hostapd.conf

dhcpd
/etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf

ser2net
/etc/ser2net.conf

I am using WiFi as an access point mode server of hostapd.
In ad hoc mode, you can not connect to the android smartphone.
For access point mode servers, you can connect to all devices.

ser2net is convenient to connect directly to Skysafari, Qdslr server is very convenient for shooting not large scale.

It can be used properly depending on the situation and INDI.

Thank you for your reply.
If your script can run on ubuntuOS, it will help a lot of people.

In the near future we will replace RaspberryPi 3 and OrangePi with USB 3, Gigabit Ethernet, high speed Wi-Fi device.
I will be saved if I can use it at that time.
