the fact that Ekos is using or not the right temperature is not relevant for the focuser T° compensation.
The compensation is done by the firmware and this is OK.
The less control functions we have on Ekos side the better.
All the low level controls should stay in the firmware ensuring they work in standalone mode.
In my opinion Ekos should stay a high level scheduler and process only sequences.
Indi Control panel function is to adjust setpoints and display status ...
OnStep as a firmware should do everything else even is connected only with a simple push button blind hand controller.
I don't think 1Wire DS1820 are more accurate or less than BME sensors.
It is only a matter on where the sensors are located, and who cares about +/- 0,5°C ...
In the BME the T° sensor does not compensate Pressure but Moisture to calculate Hr.
And for having tested on a calibration bench all type of sensors (DS1820, Thermistors, BME280, BME680 and BMP280) I can confirm they all are reliable and accurate as per specifications.
The only sensor that has some T° issues is the BME680 when used also as gas analysor since the catalyst plate heating is influencing the T° sensor, but is T°/P/Hr mode only they are pretty good.
With an electronic calculator one may get results with 10 decimals after the comma but it does not make any sense since the measurement tool is accurate at 5% just a question of order of magnitude! I still use my calculation ruler
It is pretty normal to have issues building a software from source even if one follows the "rules".
Usually it is related to some unmet dependencies and this is distribution dependent.
Example I use "Debian GNU/Linux 11 (bullseye)" and this is most probably the worst case since Debian is well known for stability at the price of being conservative with the newest releases of packages.
Most probably "Ubuntu/Kubuntu" distros are likely to be more friendly on this side so most of the requirements can be resolved.
Even I am building Indi, indi-3rdparty and Kstars practically daily without issues, it happens that sometimes dependencies are either missing or libs anot updated correctly, this is "normal" but after some search and logs review it becomes quite easy to solve these kind of issues.
I don't know your skills but probaly but don't worry, mine are not very deep when it comes to programming, I am a poor engineer that had no computer nor electronic calculator at school. I bought my first TI59 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TI-59_/_TI-58 in 1980, I was 24 at this time and was really happy to be the proud owner of such a "POWERFULL machine".
I would like to help you to solve your compilation issues but therefore I need some more information on your system:
- What hardware do you have?
- Which Distribution are you using?
- what are the errors (best are copy of compilation output)
I made some videos of some settings that if they are made via SWS do not affect the ekos settings of the mount.
The first video shows the adjustment of the meridian passage limits which work consistently: if I set them in the SWS I see them in the Ekos drive and vice versa. The others, on the other hand, show anomalous behavior... Am I making a mistake?
Thank you for the tests, you did quite the right thing.
Normally these settings should be polled and displayed but obviously something is wrong.
Most probably not critical but needs a correction.
I will check and come back to you.
But please provide the versions of your indi (under connexion tab)
very good !! at least now I know the last version is online (I suppose you did not compile it)
But I see you have an outdated version of the SmartWebServer, I have "Smart Web Server 2.01e (OnStep4.24m)"
you use 1.0a (OnStep 10.12I)
but this is not the issue.
I am testing now and confirm there is something strange.
I'll fix it and let you know.
Oh whatever you might find that is strange or need a patch is welcome!
I see that something is not updating correctly in the following commands:
Degrees pas meridian: :GXE9#, :GXEA# and respective :SXE9,n# and :SXEA,n#
seem to work but where Indi says 20 minutes SmartWebServer says 5 degrees ???? and it is not Indi related I issue the commands via Python Scripts
Also Autoflip On/ Off seem not to update but this is sure in Indi Driver:
Command :GX95# and respective :SX95,n# (n 1 or 0)
For the Overhead and Horizon Limits
Commands :Go# and respective SoDD# and Gh# and respective ShDD#
I found no discrepancy but will continue to check.
