Ekos VM download #51575
Hello folks, I'd like to give it a try to switch my current imaging software to a more powerful Ekos/ KStars. I come across the following youtube video talking about the installation: https://www.youtube....h?v=A6JM6iINBkA

However in the download section of the Indi website, it seems the link to download the Ekos VM has been removed: indilib.org/download.html

Anyone know what's happened?

I only have a laptop running windows.

The VM is stopped because of a too large taxing on bandwidth for Jasem, and that the astro equipment device drivers did not always work nice in a VM. See www.indilib.org/forum/ekos/3295-ekos-vm.html#25151
You can download EKOS for various operating systems natively now at indilib.org/download.html but for fi. WIndows that does not include the device drivers. For that you still need a remote Linux computer with them (regular PC or something like a RPI).

Or simply create your own VM using Ubuntu MATE (for example) and install KStars in it yourself. It does require knowledge of Linux though.
