Wow... I thought the iGuider was detachable but it's actually a solid part of the saddle.
Cannot even remove this useless thing....

Can some kind soul fix the driver for iGuider?
I wish I could but I can't.

I'm caught in this loop too. Not happy!

Worse, running Ekos on my Macbook pro for testing and it's telling me Indi_4l2_ccd driver was not in the package and at the same time some MacOs "allow/deny" window pops up and then vanishes before I can read or respond.

Really didn't want to have to go back to Windows for this (CEM40G)... I guess it's that or a second guide cam!

I don't' understand really.
iOptron CEM/GEM mounts are among the most popular mounts.
The fact that iGuider is still not properly supported under INDI is a shame.
Considering it is supported under ASCOM.

*Mount* is supported, cameras on the other hand, not so much. I offered to help on iGuider, but I need access to a remote machine to test my patch.

Thank you, Jasem.
Yes, I remember.
I did install TeamViewer on my Windows PC.
Wiling to test.
I have zero experience with TeamViewer, though.
I am using my Windows PC INDI client to connect to a remote RPI server.
Thanks!

Guys, I have an old MacBook Pro (2012) that I can hook up to the cem40g or an old pc I can partition with Linux if that helps at all. No problem with teamviewer sessions on either of those. It would just take me a day to set them up (work has gone crazy again!).

Let me know if that would help. I’m in Australia so time zones might be an issue if you need anything hands on.

If it's not too slow then sure.

Jasem,
I also installed TeamViewer on my StellarMate.
I am able to connect to it from my desktop.
Will submit a ticket with TV details.
Thanks!

Replied by Tim on topic Ekos and Ioptron GEM 45 G probs

Yup, so sad. That's why I've stopped using indi for everything except what I'm forced to use it with (Fujifilm X-T4)... and even that has issues, but at least it's mostly usable, where as I cannot use it with anything on Windows.
I use a Windows laptop to control everything else (CEM70g, iGuider, iPolar, etc), and Astroberry just for my Fujifilm camera. If Indi would properly support the iGuider and iPolar in an intuitive way, I'd go back to using it for everything (which is what I WISH i could do).
