The first step is installing homebrew. Are you saying that didn’t work or are you saying brew install python didn’t work?

I'm not really sure, I didn't see any progress indicator or system messages. But Ekos said "Python failed to install". So I don't specifically know where it failed.

OK, i figured it out. I already had Python 3 installed through another means, so it was somehow causing the script to fail from within EKOS. I had to create a link to brew from my install, and that still caused the script to not work. So then I told brew to reinstall python. After doing that, the EKSO script finished working to install the other component, and plate solving now works.

Gotcha, what was your means of installing python3? When I was working on this last month, everything I found said that the best way to do it was to use homebrew. I was hoping to find a simple installer, which I know I did several years ago, but as far as I could tell the new way is to use homebrew.

Obviously anyway it gets installed would be fine and the simpler the better. I will look at the interface again to make sure we are supporting people with alternate locations for python 3.

After I worked on this for kstars I made the INDI web manager app last month and i had to do something similar and I think I improved on it a little. I will see if I can apply that to KStars.

So I just looked back at what I did. KStars is running astrometry and INDI Web Manager app is running Indi-web, but they are both using python so that basics are the same. Note that there is no way to force astrometry.net to use a particular python executable. It just uses whatever python it finds first in your PATH. It is preferable that it uses python 3 instead of python 2. Basically the way I tell astrometry.net how to find python is to add whatever folder is specified to astrometry's PATH environment variable when it runs. For both KStars and INDI Web Manager App, I have left both the option to install and configure your own python setup as well as use an automated set of installation steps. For homebrew, python 3 once it is installed can be found at either /usr/local/bin/python3 or /usr/local/opt/python/libexec/bin/python.

For KStars, I have a button to setup everything automatically. But then if you uncheck the default checkbox, you can enter the path where python can be found and set up everything yourself as shown in these screenshots.




For INDI Web Manager App, I have a slightly different design. I have a green/red indicator that determines if everything is setup properly next to an install button. Then below that, I have the box where you can enter the path where python can be found. This box can be edited if you uncheck the default checkbox and you can enter whatever path python can be found at.



Is the current method in KStars sufficient for both people who want to install python themselves and people who want to use my automated installer, or is the way I did it in INDI Web Manager App better?

Thanks,

Rob

Sounds like a server is down perhaps? Maybe try again later?

Another possibility from searching online is that you might have an older version of pip3 because they moved servers:
to try upgrading type this into the terminal:
python3 -m pip install --upgrade pip

Or maybe a proxy issue?

I am having some issue trying to get the astropy to work as well. I am NOT a computer guy. I am kind of amazed Ive been able to get this far. I have installed everything under the sun, or so I think I have. Here is the error message I get when ekos starts up. I am also getting this message after I run your setup. Everything has been installed as far as I can tell. And I entered your commands in the earlier post into terminal. not sure if thats where Im even supposed to put it. Any help would be great! Thanks!!

So a couple of weeks ago, I came up with a better solution to this problem. You can now use sextractor instead of python in the latest version of kstars and then you don't have to go through all the python setup.

I recommend installing Python 3, from www.python.org website. Then, for me, everything becomes simple and I installed the remaining without problems. For was SOLVED
