Remote solver does not work with Kstars 3.0.0 on Windows #33074
Hi there,
I'm trying to have kstars running on Windows connected remotely on an Indi server running on a Tinkerboard. All seems to be fine but the solver. When trying to Capture & resolution with Slew to Target, using simulators, the solver take a picture and then run for ever. Solving does work well using Offline option when connected localy.
Any Idea ?
Regards
Franck

have You got all the correct index files installed, as there is only a limited amount on the RPI....

Yep, all index files installed for my focal (which is also configured when I work with the simulators), but not in the default path. Of course I changed accordingly the path in /etc/astrometry.cfg - and it does work when I try to solve locally.

You say you are using simulators, so you need all index files, the ones for your focal length don’t matter when using sims...as they are as the name suggests simulators and not real, also I assume you have the ANSVR server loaded for windows as you are using locally ...
And you have index files loaded on the tinkerboard too..?

First of all if you want to use kstars on windows you have to have the ANSVR server installed as astrometry does not come with Kstars for windows only with Linux versions...
When the simulator takes an image it is a simulated image, so those images are pretend and so have to be installed using this command from terminal on the tinkerboard

sudo apt-get install gsc

gsc packages are already installed on the TB.

What I understand of the remote option for plate-solving is that you can ask a remote system to do the solving. When I'm using from Kstars on Windows I hope to have the solving done by the TB because it is my Indi server.

The drivers started in my simulator profile in INDI Web Manager is: Astrometry, CCD Simulator, Filter Simulator, Focuser Simulator, Telescope Simulator
