Lutz Bellmann created a new topic ' EQMOD disconnects using EQDirect bluetooth' in the forum. 2 months ago

Hi,
I am facing an serious issue with Indi EQMOD and KStars. I have a Atlas EQ-G Mount using a EQDirect bluetooth adapter and IndiServer. Software Versions are Indi Library 1.6.3, KSTars 2.9.3. I use the current version 1.04 on my mount (motor driver).

After connecting to the IndiServer using KStars on /dev/rfcomm0 to my mount with EQMOD, I get a successful connection. Mount clicks and shows all relevant infomration. After approx 30 secs the bluetooth disconnects shwoing ttywrite and read errors. Slewing and change of park position is not possible. The same hardware setup has been working for over a year now. Only Linux and Indi/ Kstars has been updated. The effect can be seen using a remote machine as well as a laptop (Indi running localhost). I do get the following messages from KStars:

I checked the following:
- exchanged bluetooth transceiver from mount --> no change
- exchanged bluetooth dongle on machine --> no change
- used another machine(laptop) --> no change
- software update on Mount --> no change
- used synscan controller with indi_synscan and eqmod in PC direct mode --> works
- permissions for device /dev/rfcomm0 checked on booth machines --> ok
- I checked the connection to the bluetooth device using screen --> no problem
- Power supply with 12 V Battery and AC/DC Power adapter 2250mA --> both the same effect

Attatched you can find the log file from KStars.
I really hope that someone can help me out here. It worked so good for so long on the identical hardware, that I am really frustrated right now.

Thanks alot
Lutz

confused. When I check the version on indiserver I get the version for the indilibrary as 1.4.1. Not sure what is going on...?!

sorry! I have to correct myself:

I found the file in the usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu AND in the ZIP from the Sources link here on the website.

I post here also the file if it helps: please remove the txt.

Hmm.. I did the following sequence:
- Uninstalled KStars, PHD2 and all Indi Drivers and Library
- Downloaded indi Sources from this website (Ver. 1.3.1)
- cd ed into libindi directory
- used the commands in the README to cmake libindi
- installed PHD2 and KStars bleeding from the repositories (via apt install)
--> both work now

but I am surely not an expert and moreover I cannot find any libindi.so.1 on my system anymore

Recognized this too. PHD2 refers to the same indi shared files obviously. After buiding indi from the sources provided here: both worked. :-D

Thanks. Couldn't wait of course installed Indi from sources. Afterwards it worked. Looking forward to get back to the standard libraries though.

Huge problem here! I cannot start-up KStars and / or PHD2 anymore after an update of the indidrivers today!

"kstars: error while loading shared libraries: libindi.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

What happened? Can anybody help? I will have to demount all my gear and then this clear night is gone....:-(
I am working on Ubuntu 16.04 with everything up to date I assume.

Is this solved now for you? How can I put the slash in there?

I just noticed that in the log output there is missing a "/" slash in front of home/lutzbellm... !
When I tried to handcopy the file out of the /tmp directory I could place it in the dark folder with no issue.
Yet it is not showing up in the dark library in the EKOS module.

Can anybody confirm, that this missing slash is the root cause?
