Try this:
Type in console: sudo apt-get update
After that's done: sudo apt-get upgrade
You may have to select an option in the process.
Cheers!

here's my latest config

Now everything works except for astrometry.net at http://127.0.0.1:8080 which is OK as long as the other solvers works.

It's so many options now. Overwhelming. I hope it's going to simplify eventually.

Argh... I was using simulators (I am not very good with them). Those often fail to solve. Once I switched from Primary to Guider - it worked!
Also the Primary started to work once I increased the exposure time from 2 to 6 sec.
So it works after all and it's very fast! I'll play some more.
Thanks!

For some reason it doesn't work for me.
Looks like it cannot find my astrometry.net installation.
Previous version (without the internal solver) worked with same paths.
Tried other solvers - nothing works. ASTAP, astrometry.net local, astrometry.net on-line, astrometry.net remote : (

I just installed it as per your instructions above, and it made no difference.
I get the same errors when I try and install INDI Web manager.
Python3 is installed, but this doesn't work: sudo -H pip3 install indiweb
I get those same errors I posted above.

Do you have python-dev installed? If not, do

sudo apt install python-dev

and try again.

Hi colleagues,
Someone test the sv305 Pro? Works fine on indi-svbony driver? (is usb3)
Thanks a lot,

I assume you mean the "startSovler" part?

I would say yes, somebody meant to write startSolver and goofed. I just took a peek, and it looks like it has been called that for more than 4 years. That is fairly easy to change, but I am not sure we need to do so because:

The good news is that all those astrometryparsers should not really be needed anymore because now all that options parsing is handled internally in StellarSolver to make the code simpler and cleaner. Not only that, the same options profiles will work for all the methods StellarSolver uses, ASTAP, internal solver, local astrometry, and online solver, instead of having many different options for the different methods of solving all in different places and some in configuration files that could be set incorrectly. Now it is just one set of options, all internal in KStars in the one place, so you can'f have a messed up file somewhere preventing your astrometry from working.

Please have a look at class AstrometryParser. Is this a typo?

virtual bool startSovler(const QString &filename, const QStringList &args, bool generated = true) = 0;

I am using the nightly windows build, however the newest nightlies are not working well due to the guys building the next version, let me share a link with the last stable one I am currently using.

Are you using windows? If so, what are you using as an indi server?

This change turned out to be a good move. There was one of two versions of the Iris Nebula which could not be solved - and this one can be processed now.

That's what I find regarding temp. Even though the cooler isn't on at startup.

I've set my image dimensions the same but can't get the images to download.

My kstars has a different SDK to you for some reason and its a new version?

J., I just sent this to Jasem.

Jim and Andrew, those are very very good ideas! I think both of those could make sense. We should definitely take a look.

Are you attempting to auto focus drive a camera lense on the camera body?

I love this camera, it's performed very well. No amp glow, and very good image data.
