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

make[2]: Leaving directory '/home/steve/Downloads/libnova-0.14.0/src/libnova'
Makefile:446: recipe for target 'install-recursive' failed

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??.

Thanks for that Gorgias. I think the 5300 and the 5500 are pretty similar except for the touchscreen and a couple of other things. I`ll try my Nikon with Indi when I return home.
thanks again

Must admit controlling one pc from another is not something I`m that familiar with let alone using different OS`s to do it ;-)

HI guys
Been a while since I posted on the forum but become interested in the Rasp Pi development recently and just got a Rasp Pi3 today.
I've installed Raspian Jessie on it and Kstars/Ekos with all the Rasp Indi stuff. I'd like to be able to use my Pi3 to control my EQ6 mount,Atik 314 ccd and Lodestar guider wirelessly from my Windows 10 64bit machine but not sure how to go about it, what apps would I need on both machines and then how to configure them would be great if poss please?
thanks
