I mean do you want to work on making the mount talking to indi?
This will involve compiling your own serial drivers for the kernel and at least moderate poking around the linux system. Are you up for this?
And we may end empty-handed for our efforts...

Hello! I am not expert in Linux. I think if you write a detail procedure of writing serial driver for the kernel (for newbie in linux/raspberry pi) will be helpful for future experimenters. I am now operating it with Cartes du Ciel in windows and it is running nice! I don't want to do experiment with this anymore!

Thank you for your help.

Good for you s21xt!
I figured it was not worth it for you. I was talking to jpatka - to make sure he is up for it.
The actual modification is quite simple but to apply it you need to perform few steps.
Do you have ubuntu or debian system you can use for this work?
If not which linux distro are you most comfortable with?

What about my other questions
system you can use? preferably debian/ubuntu?
how familiar are you with linux? (how many years?)
I just want to keep the conversation on most effective level.
I actually think it may be just a serial driver problem, and after fixing this it may just start working^TM ;)

I know 20 years of linux. But I'm not strong. I work on it. Debian or Ubuntu is ok. I started with Mandriva, SUSE. Now only Debian and Ubuntu.

Thanks. That will be fine. We need only basic things - like working in the terminal etc.
So, I'm assuming we are on debian or ubuntu.
Now you need to follow the steps in:
indilib.org/forum/ekos/1045-indi-support...s.html?start=24#8522
and follow with the modifications in :
indilib.org/forum/ekos/1045-indi-support...s.html?start=24#8524
Let me know if something is unclear or you got stuck at some point.
