I am trying to get a NUC set up with indi & Ekos (on top of ubuntu 16.04lts). I have it close but can't get the online plate solve to work. Even tried using my own api key. With verbose enabled I see (x's are redacted):

Uploading as jpeg, using gse that I built (end-goal is offline solve)
for the install I did:
sudo apt-get install libcairo2-dev libnetpbm10-dev netpbm \
                        libpng12-dev libjpeg-dev python-numpy \
                        python-pyfits python-dev zlib1g-dev \
                        libbz2-dev swig libcfitsio-dev
 
wget http://astrometry.net/downloads/astrometry.net-latest.tar.gz
tar xzf astrometry.net-latest.tar.gz
cd astrometry.net-*
 
make
make py
make extra
sudo make install

which puts the gse stuff in /usr/local/astrometry/
doest this work for anyone? any tips?

EDIT: I should add that I am using the simulator with GSC working

OK - I solved my own problem. Offline didn't work either, was getting a sage error.

Long story short - it appears that the --no-fits2fits option doesn't/no longer exists. removing it from my command got me on my way
