Ah. Sorry to bother you. I had done that but was testing an old copy in /usr/local/bin. It now works as desired.

Thanks for the reassurance.

My Dome driver has its own integrated hardware interface operating directly through RPi GPIO pins. Seems my decision to do this is at odds with the recent encapsulation of serial/tcp connection logic. At the moment I get, as expected: Failed to connect to port (/dev/ttyUSB0). Error: Port failure Error: No such file or directory. Check if device is connected to this port.

I have tried a few things, unsuccessfully to inhibit the connection logic. I am not very confident I have source that matches the current RPi build.

Is there a way I can override the connection logic?

I'm now wondering if we could please get a fixed version for raspberry pi?

Just resurrected my Xagyl wheel and found that INDI driver (indi_xagyl_wheel) failed with "Unable to parse FW 2.2.0."

I have done a local fix as follows:-

libindi(1.2.0)->drivers->filter_wheel->xagyl_wheel.cpp line 190

was: int fw_rc = sscanf(resp, "%d", &fwver);
is: int fw_rc = sscanf(resp, "FW %d", &fwver);

works for me; but thought I should say.

I apologise if this post is too far off-topic.

I am thinking about an alternative to IRAF which appears to be sliding into the abyss; so am seeking a recommendation for a processing set that works well on linux. I would be very happy to hear, please, what fellow KStars/INDI users find useful.

Both indi and kstars are installed under /usr. There are no indi or kstars files under /usr/local.

I have set up TeamViewer on the relevant machine and have emailed the connection details.

Another thing I have noticed is that when I uninstall/reinstall kstars, my configuration entries persist ; ergo some permanent storage location that I can't find. Could that be where a bit of bad config could be hiding? BTW thanks.

OK - current status: indi under /usr, kstars rebuilt and installed under /usr and no residual indi files in /usr/local/*

Still the same symptoms. The only other, possibly helpful, thing I can offer is that I checked that the kstars build included indi support.

For development purposes,

I have just fetched built indi from github.com/indilib/indi.git and kstars from git://anongit.kde.org/kstars.
When I run kstars, I find that neither Device Manager nor Ekos is available in the Tools menu.

I'd really appreciate a hint as to the best move forward. Is this a known problem? Have I screwed up the configuration. WIth reference to the snapshot below of relevant INDI config, I have verified that indiserver is in /usr/bin and that /usr/local/share/indi contains a valid "drivers.xml".
