TOPIC: Astrometry index files on USB 3 drive...

Astrometry index files on USB 3 drive... 1 month 6 days ago #31231

Hi all,
I use an i3 laptop with a 128gb SSD drive, and run Linux Ubuntu in a 20gb partion as a dual boot with win 10.
Now I want to run Astrometry locally on this machine in Linux, but have not got enough space, so I Ha e a 128gb USB 3 drive plugged into this laptop for extra storage and want to install the index files on there, so how and how can I tell Ekos where to look for them instead of the default directory...
Thanks in advance :)

Well you should edit the astometry.cfg file to reflect the new path primarily. You need to edit this line:

# In which directories should we search for indices?
add_path *Path is here*

where/how is it installed? E.g., I have it in /opt/astrometry, so the config file is /opt/astrometry/etc/astrometry.cfg

Hmmm
The index files were in /usr/share/Astrometry and that is what was in Ekos.
I want them in a folder on my USB drive, (where I have them all ready) so used the path to that and put that in the astrometry.cfg file as suggested above...
