Feilim Breatnach replied to the topic 'Raspberry Pi 3 Setup Script' in the forum. 2 months ago

Hi with regards to recent changes say in the last week or two - can you advise on the best way to apply these to mys system if I have already run the script on it about 2 weeks back? Would it be a matter of looking at the diffs in github, and trying to run these bits only, or could I just run the entire script again?

Btw a separate unrelated question, the 2nd screenshot below with the images of nebulous areas showing in KStars - how does one go about seeing these in the tool (is there a separate catalog to download etc) ?

Many thanks again for your continued work on this btw!

I ran the script this evening on my Raspberry Pi 3 and it went flawlessly. Thanks again for putting this together, it is really very useful!

Many thanks Rob for all your work on this. I just recently had a to start from scratch on a RPi3 and was using James' tutorial again to get back up and running. I may give your script a go just to test it out from a fresh Ubuntu Mate install.
Can you tell me if the script installs the IndiServer web interface / web server tool for choosing which drivers to start via the web?

Feilim Breatnach created a new topic ' Raspberry Pi 3 & Peripherals : Power Query' in the forum. 9 months ago

I have successfully setup a RPi 3 with KStars (full) and Ekos and tried it out briefly last night. I had always assumed that I needed a USB powered hub to connect peripherals to Pi, but out of interest I tried connecting the following straight to the Pi3's USB ports *without* any USB hub, and with a 2A power supply:
- Canon 450D DSLR (has its own power)
- QHY5L II Mono (drawing power from the Pi)
- EQDir (EQMod) cable (no power as the mount has its own power source)

With this setup, it appeared as though everything was actually working fine without the need for a powered USB hub. I was wondering if this sounds about right or whether I am missing something and definitely do need to put a USB in between the PI and peripherals?

Feilim Breatnach created a new topic ' GPhoto Version Query' in the forum. 9 months ago

Hi, when I install indi-full which comes with indi-gphoto, do I also need to separately install libgphoto2 from their website in order to have latest libgphoto version? Or does this somehow come bundled with indi-gphoto?

Sorry one other query - in the Alignment Module, should it be possible to enable Binning for Canon DSLR? The last time I had Ekos running with indi-gphoto, the binning option was grayed out, the only workaround seemed to be for me to go to the Image Info config of gphoto and eg. half the number of pixels for width and height, but I thought that the binning should be allowed?

A huge thanks to Jasem and all of the Ekos ecosystem dev team for this massive upgrade. I have not had a chance to try it out yet, but I've watched the YouTube videos and as a software dev myself can appreciate the massive workload that must have gone into thus release.

Well done to all on this wonderful software and I am really looking forward to running it out in the field.
