KStars v2.9.6 is Released #26227
I can't get it to launch after doing a install on my odroid xu4 with latest ubuntu. Worked previously.
Clicking on the icon does nothing.

I don't know linux or ubuntu enough to know where to look to find a log that may tell you what is going on.

If I open a terminal and type kstars it responds with

org.kde.kstars: welcom to Kstars 2.9.6
build 2018-05-25T20:12:29Z
ubnutu
arm-little_endian-ilp32-eabi-hardfloat
arm
linux
kernal ver: 4.14.43-138
Unable to find an X11 visual wich matches EGL config 9 Segmentation fault

Not sure if that is the issue?

However on my regular PC type install with the same version of Ubuntu it works just fine.

Going to try the raspberry pi next.

One big plus for OS X users, this version of KStars for OS X now includes SBIG support for the first time, assuming the SBIG Universal Driver is installed. For awhile, a number of SBIG cameras have not worked on OS X due to firmware uploading issues and we haven't included the SBIG driver in KStars due to all the issues. I added firmware uploading support to the INDI driver. So now a whole bunch of SBIG cameras should work. Thus it is now natively supported by KStars.

I would try downloading again, the initial update stopped about 40% of the way through the build process but it has been updated since and seems to be working correctly.

KStars v2.9.6 is Released #26303
Please note that I just uploaded a new OS X dmg. The version I posted 3 days ago was missing a crucial dylib for plate solving. So please update to the latest dmg on the website if you updated the other day!

As a bonus, the new dmg also includes some fixed icons and experimental drivers for fish camp, ATIK, Arduino (INDIDUINO) and MGEN.

thanks,

Rob

KStars v2.9.6 is Released #26909
Hi, I'm new to kStars, just installed it yesterday. I see the native support in OS X for the SBIG cameras (Thank you!), but not for the SBIG filter wheels. I really have no desire to install Ubuntu on my Mac just to download the SBIG INDI driver, if that's the only way to get SBIG filter wheel support. And without SBIG FW support, I won't be using kStars...

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
stan in Brooklyn

There is no separate driver for filter wheels, it's controlled from within the CCD driver. Go to INDI Control Panel --> Filter Wheel and try to connect to it from there.
