Problem with Guiding (v 3.6.3 EKOS)

Hi to all. I have been using EKOS for a long time without problems. I recently upgraded to the latest version 3.6.3. in a LINUX environment, Everything seems to work fine except the guidance. The telescope cannot return to its original position during calibration. So I tried the same procedure from another computer with version 3.6.0 in a windows environment and everything worked normally. I also tried version 3.6.0 through raspberry again with no problem. What could be happening? can i go back to the old version?
p.s. I have little knowledge of linux

Most likely optical train for your guide module does not have the correct "Guider" set. It should be set to your mount.

Thanks Jasem ! If i am correct....i have to create 2 trains,one for captur images (the primary) and one for guiding (secondary).
i use for guiding an OAG with ASI 290 (with the same telescope)
So my primary train is the primary (as the image below) and the guiding train is the seconde image (secondary)

Ted,

With the addition of Optical Trains, I don't know anymore if it is required to configure scope properties in INDI. They can be found in your mount's INDI panel in the Options tab. A quick test might verify whether that takes care of things?

Reducer/Barlow should be 1 and not 0. 1 has no effect (it's a multiplier). Zero means you have zero focal length. It actually should have a min value of 0.1, I'll fix the control.

This was exactly what I needed thanks! - I was struggling to work out why it worked in older version and this was the info I needed :) (It was quite a gap between when I last used the system)
