That seems to have got it thanks. Away from home at the moment so no scopes/ccd’s connected will try when I return.
Much appreciated thanks again

I tried to create the sym link thus
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libnova-0.14.so.0 -> /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libnova-0.16.so.0
and keep getting permission denied, guess I`m doing something wrong ;-)

Hi Guys
Just installed Kstars bleeding on a new Kubuntu 18.04 installation, I installed the Atik indi driver atikccd-1.26-amd64.deb from Cloudmasters but keep getting a crash when running the Atik local server in Device manager. The indi crash log is-

It seems libnova 0.14 is the problem but I`ve tried an older 32 bit version and it makes no difference, any ideas please?
thanks

Seems to work ok if I choose `Custom` and set the RA slew and Dec slew to say x8 or x16 then I can slew with the joystick!

Steve created a new topic ' Slew rate defaults back to 1 ?' in the forum. 1 year ago

Hi
Trying my Kubuntu 17.04 (Kstars bleeding) setup tonight with my NEQ6 mount. I seem unable to tweak the mount with the hand controller as the slew rate keeps going back to x1?.
If I set the slew rate to say x16 and push the joystick North it works ok but when I let go or move the joystick South,West or East the slew rate drops to x1?.
The Indi control panel is showing the joystick works ok by indicating
2017-05-30T22:10:11: North Slew stopped
2017-05-30T22:10:10: Starting North slew.
2017-05-30T22:10:09: South Slew stopped
2017-05-30T22:10:08: Starting South slew.
etc etc .
How can I keep the slew rate fixed so that I can use the joystick ok or is there some other setting I need to make please as I`m using a refractor and its not easy to try and tweak the mount using the N,S,E and W buttons in Ekos on the laptop same time as looking through the finder.
thanks
Steve

Thanks for that nmac, never done a sym link before so I assume its like
ln -s source_file myfile
where source would be libnova-0.14.0-2.1 and myfile would be libnova0.16-2
thus ln -s libnova-0.14.0-2.1 libnova0.16-2 ?
thanks

Hi guys
Having another try with Kstars/Ekos and just installed Kubuntu 17.04 on an oldish 64bit laptop. Installed Kstars bleeding with all drivers and keep getting a crash when trying to connect to my Atik 314L ccd.

Tried latest 32bit and 64 bit Atik drivers from CloudMakers and not sure what to try next. Wondering if these drivers have been tested with 17.04?
thanks

I seem to have sorted this problem...I think?. If I right click on the Sky Atlas I can select the Lodestar ccd, connect to it and then launch Ekos seems to work ok but If I try to connect to the Lodestar through Ekos it crashes every time??.
