i am suffering from the issue of connecting onstep with indi
i am using a ubuntu based linux pi, and a esp32 based onstep.
i tryed to install indi library including all 3rd party drivers, but it said
"Unable to locate package gsc". I had no choice but install "only indi library with basic drivers" and it completed well, i am not sure if that is enough for connecting onstep. But when i tryed to connect onstep with indi, and i got a error "failed to connect to port(dev/ttyUSB0). Error: Port failure Error: No such file or directory. Check if device is connected to this port"
by the way it could connect my qhycamera well.
Please forgive it about my poor english.Thanks!
I am working under debian and gsc is not packaged for it
goto this site cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr/ftp/cats/bincats/GSC_1.1/
download the full catalog and binaries
I installed the catalog under /usr/share/GSC
and after I copied /usr/share/GSC/bin/gsc to /usr/bin (after compilation for linux)
and at the end added the following line at the end of ~/.bashrc
so that at each login I have the PATH for the catalog set-up
I was sick as well, but it wasnt Covid, as many people around experienced. Dry cough, I felt a pain even in stomach. Now is better, bu the cough stil exists.
We had several freezing days, I turned the setup on at -4*C. Thankfully most of the time I was at home. The sky was like never! An now we have clouds and rain again. I wanted to wait and grab maybe M45 or M31, but I think the whether won't change soon.
So, keep warm, drink a lot (of water ) and don't be tempted to go outside at night!

I could not reproduce this.
I see you use previous version but there has been no change on focuser between the two versions.
I have exactly those commands without issues
Note that Second focuser has never been tested so far I know and for sure doesn't work within Ekos
I do not have anything turned on except Axis1, 2 and 4 as foxuser (3 is rotator)
So it seems it is something with my Standard Operating Procedure. When I restart everything, focuser works but in my process, update datetime update location, goto plate solve, sync with mount(probable culprit) and then focus. I need to do. action per action and focus i between each action to find where exactly issue occurs.
Hi, I can't read the properties of the LX200_OnStep driver outputs. I run the indi_getprop command, but I don't see any properties related to the outputs. I would like to use it to write simple scripts to be started at the beginning of the sessions to switch relays on or off and control part of the instrumentation which I now manage manually with the outputs. For example the switching on or off of the TDM (Telescope Drive Master) every time a fast movement of the mantle is performed or when a meridian flip is performed. Basically the question is: is it possible to control the outputs listed in the last tab of the LX200_OnStep driver with a script? If yes, can you show me some examples?
