New INDI Atik driver - Feedback requested #37691
Hi Kamisan,

In my case - and I am sure you have done already - I got it sorted by running sudo apt-get upgrade

Best, Helge

Thanks, Helge.

I have not done that only because this is Astroberry. I am awaiting a definitive answer as to what Software Update accomplishes versus sudo apt-get upgrade. Maybe they are functionally equivalent.

My reply to you last week was on a different platform: Ubuntu 16.04 laptop + my build of INDI code from Github. There I was grasping for solutions, anything to make it work. I am taking a different approach with Astroberry. I am not a Linux expert so these nuances are not intuitively obvious to me.

Perhaps Software Update brought in the latest Atik driver and everything should work but since I've got a camera that identifies itself as Synoptics there is a problem. My fallback right now is Artemis if I need to image. I'd like to get Astroberry working but it is not critical at this point.

Thanks.

To everyone who has gotten their Atik camera to work:

How does your camera identify itself on INDI Control Panel?

Mine says "Synoptics USB 2.0 EF Camera (A)"

Thanks.

Hi kamisan,

I just had a look on the astroberry side, concerning upgrade via standard procedure you would be fine ( github.com/rkaczorek/astroberry-server ).

In my case, there was a conflict between new Atik driver and some outdated general libraries, which was solved with the upgrade.

Well, back to Windows and SharpCap for me.

I was so hopeful that the official release that came through at 3am my time would surely fix the problem with not recognizing my Atik/Synoptics camera. No such luck. Rumor has it that someone has this same camera working on AstroDMx. I'll contact them to hopefully duplicate their success. In the meantime under Windows, Artemis Capture works as well as SharpCap using the camera's ASCOM driver.

One last ditch effort to get this camera working under INDI:

I uninstalled indi_atik and libatik on my Astroberry and then installed Cloudmakers' driver for ARMHF (V6+) Debian Linux or Raspbian (atikccd-1.30-armhf.deb). Installation was successful.

In Ekos I tried both local and remote. 'local' gave me the same old negative response. Then I tried 'remote' by starting indiserver from the command line. It was successful but only to the extent that INDI control panel says the camera is an "Atik 314E" but it stays disconnected. I tried clicking the "connect" button but it immediately disconnects.

A friend has this same camera that he purchased from Synoptics six months ago. Cloudmakers driver works for him using AstroDMx. I bought this camera last week. The best I can figure, Synoptics reflashed the firmware to only allow access by *authorized* applications like Artemis Capture.

Caveat emptor. If they can do this to someone like me who wants to try out a new technology without dropping $2000 into a new model then what prevents them from deactivating your camera after say 2 years, now that they control the SDK?
