The issue is all sorted :) . It was a problem with Kubuntu 17.01, it was downloading but not using the updated packages for KStars, INDI Library or INDI Web Manager. The cure was to upgrade to Kubuntu 18.04 it all works as it should now.
Thank You for the advice and assistance, it helped drill down onto the problem area.

Many Thanks
Alan

Jasem,

Many Thanks for your help unfortunately that has not worked either, I'm going to try a rebuild of the system from scratch, I've noticed that the system is not picking up any updates for any programs even via the software updater (Discover) which it used to do.

I'll try this & let you know how I get on.
I know it's all down to the setup on this laptop, as another laptop works fine with either of the raspberry Pi's without problem running 2.9.7 & 1.7.4

Once again

Many Thanks for your assistance

Alan

Jasem,
Thank you for the prompt reply.
Yes I did spot that on the forum and have updated the INDI web manager on all the devices in line with that the procedure in that post and it made no difference,
I cannot work out why the INDI library fails to update to 1.7.4 on the Lenovo when it has on every other device I have it installed on, I feel it must be something to do with the version of Kubuntu I'm running.

Many Thanks

Alan

Hello folks, I have been following this forum for a while now as I switch from ASCOM to INDI, I am making good progress & I am very grateful for this excellent piece of software and am in awe of the amount of time, skill & effort that has gone into this project.
This is my first post forgive my lack of knowledge in this field, but I have a problem since updating KStars to 2.9.7, all my Raspberry Pi devices and an old Samsung R40 laptop have successfully updated both KStars & INDI Library to 2.9.7 & 1.7.4, however a Lenovo i5 processor Kubuntu 17.10 laptop which has refused to update and is stuck on version 2.9.6 & 1.7.3.
Using the Nightly Builds the Lenovo updates KStars to 2.9.7 but INDI remains at 1.7.3 and my QHY camera will not connect on theRaspberry Pi / Lenovo combination via the INDI Web Manager.

I have tried the following on the Lenovo without success

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install indi-full kstars-bleeding

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Alan
