Hi all,

Solver consistently fails within EKOS. Log file excerpt below:

[2018-09-03T00:01:17.200 CDT INFO ][ org.kde.kstars.ekos.align] - "Capturing image..."
[2018-09-03T00:01:29.524 CDT INFO ][ org.kde.kstars.fits] - Loading FITS file "/tmp/fitsVT7257"

[2018-09-03T00:01:29.627 CDT INFO ][ org.kde.kstars.ekos.align] - "Solver failed. Try again."

When I capture an image manually and run these args with the exception of -W against the image, it solves in about 7 seconds.

What am I doing wrong?

The problem is that EKOS does not like symbolic links - changed to actual paths and it works. Not sure if this is a bug or a feature, but perhaps a warning should be included on the options page.
