Astroberry Focuser V2.6 on Asus Tinker Board issue #56448
Hi all, I have built an Astroberry focuser V2.6 using the GPIO on my Asus Tinker board. The tinker board is running ubuntu 18.04lts, kstars and astroberry focuser etc installed/compiled as per documentation.

The Astroberry fosuser code compiled with no errors as per the documentation.

When i try to run the focuser in ekos, i get an error " Problem initiating Astroberry Focuser". See image below. I have also attached the log file.

Has anyone tried running the Astroberry focuser on the tinker board GPIO?


Lots of trial and error, mainly error, but in hindsight, it was easy!!!
