Hello,

An update on this one: fixed by disabling MessageManager, so now I am operational with Ubuntu-Mate.
I will let you know when I get a chance to test with the AP1600.

Thanks for letting me know about the date/time bug, it now explains why my mount had a wrong time at some point!
Is there a tracker for this bug?

Thanks
Regards,
Florian

Hello,

Since I moved from Raspbian to Ubuntu Mate, it appears I have a similar issue.
I added the rules to prevent ModemManager from grabbing the device.
However, I am still getting the error.

How did you solve the issue (if you did) ?

Thanks

I have just installed the driver from the CloudMakers website, and it works again.
I will let you know about the connectivity with the AP1600 next time I can test it.

Thanks & Clear skies

Hello,
Thanks for the reply.
I installed Ubuntu Mate on my Raspberry Pi.
Now, I cannot connect my USB Focus any more :

Hello,

I am trying to connect the AP1600 mount to kstars through INDI server running on Raspberry Pi.

In Ekos, in the driver list, I can see:
- "AstroPhysics indi_lx200ap"
- "AstroPhysics Experimental indi_lx200ap_experimental".

If I select the first one, it will fail to connect to the server.
Indeed, on the raspberry, I do not see any "indi_lx200ap". But instead, I see "indi_lx200ap_legacy".
I installed the drivers from the 1.6.0 package distributed here: indilib.org/download/raspberry-pi/downlo...or-raspberry-pi.html

If I use the experimental one, everything seems to be fine.
When I tried to park/unpark the mount, I reached the situation that slews from both kstars and the remote were leading to nonsense moves of the mount.
At that point, even the parking to position 3 (CW down) was leading to nonsense moves.
In order to fix that, I had to synchronize the mount on a star with the remote.
I am quite surprised: I thought that this position was not dependant on any mount calibration (azimut and altitude shoud be independant from any time/position)?
Note: before doing my tests, I had not noticed the special instructions about the parking positions.

- How to fix the setup for the legacy driver?
- Or, if you advise to still use the experimental driver, how to avoid these parking/slewing problems?

Thank you.
Regards,
Florian

OK, after some search, I found the command:
indiserver indi_atik_wheel

which outputs:
2018-03-20T20:21:08: Driver indi_atik_wheel: indi_atik_wheel: error while loading shared libraries: libcfitsio.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I will try to reinstall this one as well.

Hello !
Thank you so much ! By installing libnova 0.14, the ATIK works! :)

However, the Filter wheel is still failing.
Should I do the same for some other libs?

Jean-Jacques, how to run the test you are talking about?
I did not know there was some.

Thanks!

Hello,

I wanted to upgrade the indi drivers on my Raspberry from 1.5.0 to 1.6.0 (provided here: indilib.org/download/raspberry-pi.html )
So I made the move from Jessie to Stretch, then upgraded the drivers... and I am now crying :(

Connection to Lodestar & Gemini 2 still works.
However, not for the ATIK wheel and the ATIK 383L+.

I can see the device when I use the lsusb command.

Hello,

The ATIK383L+ camera provides images with size 3354 x 2529.
However, I noticed that when using INDI, I am getting images with size 3326 x 2504.
I tried to set the size from the configuration panel, but I got the message: Error: Invalid range for Width (WIDTH). Valid range is from 1 to 3326. Requested value is 3354.

Attached the log file.
Thanks

Florian Signoret created a new topic ' Exposure countdown not updated' in the forum. 9 months ago

Hello,

Last night, each time I was launching an exposure, the countdown was set to the exposure time (e.g. 300).
Then, it was never updated, for 5 minutes.
When the exposure finished, it became 0.
Same for next exposures, until I restart Kstars/Ekos.

Regards,
Florian
