Nathan Day created a new topic ' ASI EFW can't set AutoFocus in Filter Dialog' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

I am trying to set up my ASI EFW to automatically autofocus on filter change.

In the capture screen I click on the filter icon and get the filter settings dialog. When I click on the autofocus for row 1, I see the checkbox and can add or remove a checkmark. However, when I click in the autofocus column for any other row I see the checkbox but cannot add a checkmark.

When I turn on the debug logs for the Filter Wheel, I see this line whenever I click on anything in the filter settings dialog:

[2018-05-04T20:18:06.054 CDT WARN ][                       default] - QSqlQuery::prepare: database not open

[2018-05-04T20:18:21.903 CDT WARN ][                       default] - QSqlQuery::prepare: database not open

The driver indi_asi_wheel is version 0.8 Interface 16

The filter wheel moves as commanded and I have been able to change and save the options.

Is there any other debug information I can collect?

I am running 1.7.2 on Ubuntu 18.04.

Thank you.

Thank you! I was able to sudo apt-get install kstars-bleeding and everything worked.

I am capturing images as I write this.

Awesome software.

Sorry for another "can't install indi" post - I've read the others and tried many of the solutions...

Like the subject says, I am installing indi/ekos under ubuntu 18.04 (beta as of this writing). I am using 18.04 because I am using a new NUC (june canyon chipset) which from my reading requires the latest kernel modules.

After installing from USB and the subsequent reboot, I performed a sudo apt update followed by sudo apt upgrade to get the latest packages. I rebooted to make all the latest changes active.

I then followed the instructions at indilib.org/forum/general/210-howto-buil...st-libindi-ekos.html .
Here is the complete history

1  history
    2  sudo apt-get update
    3  sudo apt-get upgrade
    4  sudo reboot
    5  sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/ppa
    6  sudo apt-get update
    7  sudo apt-get install kstars-bleeding
There appears to be a conflict as I received this error:

I tired to sudo apt install indi-bin and it worked! It installed "Setting up indi-bin (1.7.1-0ubuntu1)"
But indilib1 still won't install

I'm confused because indi-bin is version 1.7.1
$ sudo apt install indi-bin

indi-bin is already the newest version (1.7.1-0ubuntu1).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

Any suggestions? This was a VERY fresh install. No other software installed, just what I documented above.

I did try some solutions from other threads like :
sudo apt-get -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-overwrite" install libindi1

But I have no held packages: "sudo dpkg --get-selections | grep hold" returns nothing.
