OK, the crash logs were both different, I though Robert may have already deployed the changes. Guessing I am too eager. I will now try the newest.

I should have asked, what are you running KStars on? e.g. laptop with RPi? just laptop/desktop? Are you running the current version with applied updates? Are you running Ubuntu/windows/Mac or using VMs? Is the camera plugged into a USB HUB or direct to computer? Can you see what power it is drawing down? Are the cables good? (try a different set).
You do not need to edit the rules to push the firmware to the camera just CL
Here is another link for .dep based package;
github.com/qhyccd-lzr/QHYCCD_Linux_New
It says under Update 2 "changed rules to get QHY163 and FX3 cams working"
Looks easy to install, just run the install script - can't hurt to try

Hello, feel your pain.
I see that the device is found and listed using lsusb, but it doesn't show any descriptors. If the firmware loaded successfully it would a readable name. What does the device list when you try 'demsg -wH' ? Do you get errors and what are they? Additionally, this is a USB3 device, have a look at this link to help get you started.
qhyccd.com/bbs/index.php?topic=5958.01618
Have you tried pushing the firmware to this camera? If you look (cat) the file located at /lib/udev/rules.d/85-qhy.rules it should show you an example for using fxload3.
Hope this is enough to get you started

Downloaded and upgraded to 2.9.5, installed on main computer and application crashed when connecting to simulators.. Tried it on the laptop, same story. Included the crash data for the first.
Remove the .txt extension.
Let me know if you require additional information.

Andrew Couture replied to the topic 'StellarMate and INDI Web Server' in the forum. 3 months ago

That is interesting about powered hubs stripping information.
The hub i use is the Insignia - USB3.0 4 port hub (model NS_PCH5431-C)
I did you the Serial Port Asssistant to get the path /dev/focuser.
I ran the assistant with both hubs and once directly to Stellarmate.

I dug up a D-Link - USB3.0 3 port Hub (model DUB-H4) which I do not use and tried it.
Ran the assistant and gave me the link “focuser -> ttyUSB0”

Ran KStar/Ekos remotely and connected to the device.

Great catch about the USB hub, I just learned another new thing today. Now I need to pick up
another 4+ hub this week (probably a D-link).

Thank you Jasem, freaky good call

Hello folks,

My first post to this forum after months of lurking. I was able to find solutions to most of my challenges. However, I am stumped on this.
Testing was done with/without a USB3 hub.

First, created a dedicated serial connection in INDI Web Server.

Stellarmate
4.9.78-v7+
Invoked KStars and Ekos
Pegasus DMFC connected to a Powered USB Hub.

For completeness, when I connect this focuser to MacOs, I get an the address /dev/cu.usbserial-PA2GUZRV

This is not a show stopper, as I can still plug the focuser directly into one of the StellarMates USB ports, but the less devices on this box the better to avoid low voltage events. (changed cables and power wart and USB3 Hubs)

Ran log files for INDI & Focuser for both tests.

I am open to suggestions at this point.
