New INDI Atik driver - Feedback requested #32847
I am trying to understand something, as the newly compiled version is available over PPA, I have installed it and noticed something interesting.

let's remove it first:
# apt-get remove libatik indi-atik indi-full
# cd /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/
# ll libatik*
ls: cannot access 'libatik*': No such file or directory

let's install it:
# apt-get install indi-atik libatik indi-full
# ll libatik*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 12 Dec 20 11:59 libatik.so -> libatik.so.2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 Dec 20 11:59 libatik.so.2 -> libatik.so.2.1.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Dec 20 11:59 libatikcameras.so -> libatikcameras.so.2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 Dec 20 11:59 libatikcameras.so.2 -> libatikcameras.so.2.1.0
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2928940 Dec 20 11:59 libatikcameras.so.2.1.0


Why do I have two broken symlinks???

You probably had the previous driver from Cloudmakers install. Purge everything atik* or libatik* and reinstall again.

New INDI Atik driver - Feedback requested #33490
Hi,

I'm a physics teacher and I'm setting up an observatory at my school. We have an Atik One 6.0 CCD camera with an Atik GP guider camera. I would like to run all of it with Ekos under Ubuntu 18.04. I am using KStars 3.00 and the new ATIK drivers (Version 2.1).

I have run into the following problems trying to run the camera and the guider:

1) Atik One 6.0 connects but the following problems occur:
- I can't set the filter names permanently
- changing from filter position 1 to 2 does not move the filter wheel / a subsequent change from filter position 2 to 3 (in Ekos) moves the filter number 2 in front of the sensor and so on ... I can never reach filter position 5
2) Atik GP guider camera doesn't even show up in the INDI Control Panel
3) I can choose between "Atik" and "ATIK CCD" in the Profile Editor and don't know the difference (if there is any)

Using the cloudmaker Atik driver changes the filter problem but the guider shows up in the INDI control panel but never connects.

I'm grateful for any help on this since I would like to start observing with my students soon and have to switch to Artemis Software under Windows, if I don't get this to run under Ekos. And who would want that? ;)

Cheers,
Simon

Hi Simon,

our (CloudMakers) INDI driver definitely worked with Atik One (I have one) and to some extent worked with Atik GP (I have one as well). If it is detected but can't be connected, maybe USB rules script failed for some reason. Check permissions for device created for the camera in /dev/bus/usb/something... You can use lsusb command to find which one is it.

Atik GP is actually PointGrey Chameleon camera and only basic IIDC modes are supported by INDI driver, what limits e.g. available resolutions or framerates. If you want full support, you need to use INDIGO IIDC driver, but it will not work for you out of the box because of design flaw in Ekos. Camera reports itself correctly as PointGrey Chameleon and not as CCD IIDC as supposed by Ekos. But it should work, if you will run Atik and IIDC drivers in separate INDIGO server instead of built in INDI server. It will be also faster, because you will save one interprocess boundary.

Hello Simon,

"Atik" is the newer INDI driver built on Atik SDK. Regarding the Atik filter wheel, I just tested it and it works just fine, including saving filter names. . Which driver are you selecting for that? Make sure it's "Atik EFW".

New INDI Atik driver - Feedback requested #33496
Hello Jasem,

thanks for the quick reply. First I wasn't using any driver for the filter wheel, since it is included in the Atik One. However, when I select "Atik EFW" as filter wheel I get a message from Indi Server saying "No Atik filter wheels detected. Power on?". Any idea what I am doing wrong? Also any clue why the Atik GP guider camera doesn't even show up in the INDI Control Panel?

Ah built it FW. Okay, I can't test that but I think I fixed the issue from the description of your bug report. The change will be in tomorrow's nightly build (check Download for how to enable nightly PPA).

Regarding Atik GP, I just emailed Atik to see what they have to say about that. But As Peter said above, you might need a different driver for it. At any rate, let's wait for Atik official response on this.

Thanks for the effort. I will check the nightly build tomorrow and see how it works. I also tried using the indigo server. All connected devices (CCD, built in FW and Guider) show up in the Web Interface. But how do I get Ekos to use the indigo instead of the INDI drivers?

I‘m looking forward to hear what Atik‘s official reply is.

Run INDIGO server with indigo_ccd_atik and indigo_ccd_iidc drivers, run Ekos, create new profile, select remote type and enter localhost as the address.

Or you could try just manually writing the name of the indigo driver into the corresponding ekos profile box, and it will find them as they are located in same folder as INdI drivers, that may work..
