SOLVED - How Do You Save Settings in INDI Control Panel? was created by werper

How do you save settings in the INDI Control Panel? Every time I launch or reboot my system I have to go back in and set specifics (mostly for my Canon T3i DSLR) such as enable preview, set mirror lock time, upload preference, set streaming encoder, etc.. The "Save Configuration" under the Options tab does not save these settings and having to change them every time (and hope I didn't forget any) is tedious and a waste of valuable imaging time.

Have you taken a look, if the config file holds your values? I have a similar problem with the MI driver that ignores some of the values. Solution there is to disconnect and connect for a second time.

Hi
Make sure you have write set on:
~/.local/share/kstars/userdb.sqlite

Linux noob here. No idea how to do that. I assume you're referring to having write permissions?

Open a terminal and type

ls -l ~/.local/share/kstars/userdb.sqlite

and then paste the output here please. It should look like this

$> ls -l ~/.local/share/kstars/userdb.sqlite

sudo chown werper ~/.local/share/kstars/userdb.sqlite
chmod +w ~/.local/share/kstars/userdb.sqlite
I think!

Most of these settings are INDI driver settings, not KStars, so they should be saved in ~/.indi

Check the XML file there for your camera and make sure you have write permission to it (owned by your user).

SOLVED: Just as the others had said, I found that by changing the file permissions of: ~/.local/share/kstars/userdb.sqlite on each of my Rasberry PIs (I run two distributed) I am now able to save my hardware configurations. Here is the command syntax that was successful:
Open a MATE Terminal and type:
sudo chmod 644 ~/.local/share/kstars/userdb.sqlite (it will them ask you for the Stellarmate password, key it in and press enter. That's it, you're done!

To verify the permissions are set correctly, type in the following command in MATE Terminal:
ls -l ~/.local/share/kstars/userdb.sqlite

and just as wvreeven wrote, you should get:
-rw-r--r-- 1 ... etc..

This permission setting allows you to save your configurations once you change the settings in the INDI Control Panel Tab for your camera - AND ALSO - click on the SAVE button on the OPTIONS sub-tab/CONFIGURATION - if you don't click to save your config, nothing will be saved!!

I hope this info is helpful to others who my have run into this problem.
