ttyUSB0 issues on OnStepp and RasPi4 #48736
Hello,

Please use ttyACM. I keep reading the use of ttyAMC. The use of ttyAMC will yield nothing as demonstrated. Please use

ttyACM

ACM = Asynchronous Communication Manager = ACM

Hi Arado,

Firstly, I'm so sorry I'm a little bit dislexic.
I copy the results after to change ttyUSB* for ttyACM* and after reboot:

ttyUSB0 issues on OnStepp and RasPi4 #48740
I post the solution step for not forget it:

After some talk with Jasem :
"I'm starting to suspect that something else is interfering with it. Maybe the <em>GPS daemon</em>? in dmesg it was shown pps0
Try to disable gpsd:
<strong>sudo systemctl stop gpsd</strong> gpsd.socket"

...
But the problem returned so the final solution:
Now totally disabled the gpsd deamon. <strong>Edited the /etc/default/gpsd script and made</strong>:

START_DEAMON="false"
USBAUTO="false"<strong></strong>
and also put #<strong></strong> in front of the rest...

And Now works perfectly.

For my hand is <em><strong>SOLVED!!!</strong></em> ;-)
Thanks to all,
Pep

Hello,

If my scope is in a fixed position, disabling gps makes sense. For me, I need my GPS for I am mobile. However, the Garmin device must remain unplugged to the mount and the RPI4. Disabling GPSD does not stop a plugged device from loading.

Run this command

Dmesg | grep “udevadm”

Please share the results.

Hi Pep,

Nice to see the solution workes!
In all honesty I think it shouldn't be necessary to know so much about Linux to solve these things.....
As for my coordinates I simply look on my phone ;-))

Cheers, Arnold

Hello,

Yes. The solution to disable GPS applets in INDI is one solution. I used my phone also. The issue I had was time. KSTARS has a method of guessing time when not connected to a network. KSTARS guesses were not helpful. KSTARS is dependent on some time keeper.

I use my GPS to give the longitudinal and latitudinal time to KSTARS. This makes KSTARS relative to my position.

I agree that having to know Linux is a big ask. AstroBerry makes it easier. The trouble is technology. Vendor devices follow standards to their liking. The Raspbian OS approach to hardware management is different from Ubuntu Mate. No, INDI is not responsible for every vendor’s hardware. Vendors are. If a vendor’s driver is behaving rudely, knowing how to manage rude vendors is key. You contain them as I described.

I need to see what if any syntax errors were introduced during Pep’s attempts. I understand dyslexia. I know people who struggle with it. The potential was identified in this thread.

Hi Arado,

I propouse an idea, you review if there are any mistake and then you send me (or paste all the paremeters, places where do it,... ) that you want I check .
And all the steps (comands and options )to execute and I give you the results. I removed all the test that you propouse it.
And, I undertand now, why the kstars needs the gps system...
Really all of you are genius .
Thanks again
Pep
Pd: I hope this weekend I hope to debuted on control remotely my telescope and take photos and guide....

Hello,

I would be happy to look. I have AstroBerry 2.0.0 running now. For AB 2.0.0, I installed the application System Log. This allowed me to get to udevadm easier. Dmesg sometimes doesn’t see udevadm. Instead, we will use the command, journalctl.

With everything plugged in, open a terminal. Type this within the quotes, “journalctl -g udevadm”. This command will display any syntax errors within the drive rules load process. This will be the basis line.

Hello,

I concur. journalctl does not supply the desired impact of rules being applied. Try xgps.

ttyUSB0 issues on OnStepp and RasPi4 #51161

Hi Cicera,
I see a lot of Linux passing by which I honestly don't understand much of.....
This is my experience:
I have an EQDrive system on my G11 that mimics a Skywatcher mount and so is usable with EQmod.
Worked perfectly with Windows but with Stellarmate I ran into a problem when starting EKOS:

[WARNING] Port /dev/ttyUSB0 is already used by another driver or process.
[WARNING] Communication with /dev/ttyUSB0 @ 9600 failed. Starting Auto Search...

After some talk with Jasem :
"I'm starting to suspect that something else is interfering with it. Maybe the GPS daemon? in dmesg it was shown pps0
Try to disable gpsd:
sudo systemctl stop gpsd gpsd.socket"

That was it! EQDrive now worked on Stellarmate RPi !
But the problem returned so the final solution:
Now totally disabled the gpsd deamon. Edited the /etc/default/gpsd script and made:

START_DEAMON="false"
USBAUTO="false"
and also put # in front of the rest...

Since then I use it without a glitch :-)

Cheers, Arnold



JEEEEEZZ thank youuuu!!!!

This solved my problem with my QHYCFW2 in standalone mode!

It uses the CP210x chipset too, and it wasn't working on the PI4 (but on PI3 B+ was).

Disabled the GPSD stuff and now it is working, ahhaha, it is wonderful!
