Issues connecting Canon DSLR #38470
Newbie with KStars/Ekos here.

I am getting errors when attempting to connect my Canon SL2 (200D) with Ekos.
Running Kstars on Mac OS X 10.13.6.

It took me less than a minute to connect to my HEQ5 mount through EQdir (works great!), but when I came to setup my DSLR, it claimed:
"Can not open camera: Power OK? If camera is auto-mounted as external disk storage, please unmount it and disable auto-mount.
Camera_get_config failed : Could not claim the USB device"

I triple checked that the camera on, battery is full, it is not mounted or used by other programs.
I can connect and use the camera with other programs (AstroDSLR or the EOSUtility) without any problem, so it's not the USB cable either.

Not sure what is going on here, anyone has a suggestion?
Thx

This happens when libgphoto2 automatically mounts the camera. Please make sure to use Jasem's ppa for libgphoto2. See

Thanks for the tip.

Is there a version of ppa for Mac OSX?
I am not clear is there is and how I would go about installing it...
