please advise how do I disable the password protected screen saver?
I know the password is EKOS but I don't like the interference.
Security is not an issue for me.

thanks,
Malcolm

I'm trying to use the Oracle Virtual Box.
It runs on my laptop ok, but it wont run where I want it to run...which is on my computer in my observatory.
I followed all the same steps to install which were successful on my laptop, but I get this error on my desktop in the observatory:
VT-x/AMD-V hardware acceleration is not available on your system. Your 64-bit guest will fail to detect a 64-bit CPU and will not be able to boot.
any suggestions?

thanks,
Malcolm

this looks fantastic, and I cant wait to try it myself.
Of course, an image file would be a dream too.
But just to let you know, there is definitely interest in this concept,

hi, I was able to run sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade tonight, so I assume I have the latest software.
Attached is the log file from my attempt to connect the CEM25
Any ideas or suggestions?

thanks very much,

I tried to run this from the command line as instructed here:
indilib.org/download/raspberry-pi/category/6-raspberry-pi.html
sudo apt-get install cdbs libcfitsio3-dev libnova-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev libjpeg-dev libusb-dev libtiff5-dev libftdi-dev fxload libkrb5-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev dcraw libgphoto2-dev libgsl0-dev dkms libboost-regex-dev libgps21 libdc1394-22-dev

I got response:
"Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Note, selecting 'libgsl-dev' instead of 'libgsl0-dev'
E: Unable to locate package libgps21"

and it halted there.
Can it be run without libgps21? Is it in a different location or no longer required?

thanks,
Malcolm

is this right?
"Since INDI v1.2.0, you need Raspian Jessie to install the packages."
Am I wasting my time trying to install INDI in UBUNTU MATE?

Yes I do have teamviewer on my pc's and laptops. but my RPi is configured to only be connected by VNC over WIFI
Can I connect to both the RPi and the internet at the same time?
I dont think so :( Unless you have a suggestion...

thanks,
