Indiweb installation fails #40731
I wanted to install indiweb on my linux Ubuntu desktop. I have followed the instructions to install i ndiweb as described in the indilib website. This involved installing pip3 python and also build essential. However when I actually run the indiweb install command it fails after a few lines saying setuptools missing. How do i get setuptools?
Thanks,
Lou

I use the following:

sudo apt-get install python3-pip
sudo -H pip3 install indiweb

I add
sudo apt install build-essential
For good measure.
So I use pip3 , not pip

I will try what you suggest.

Well i followed the instructions in your link substituting pip3 for pip. Now when I install indiweb it finds setuptools and wheel and seems to terminate without errors. However I cannot find the program indiweb it presumably built. It is not in my desktop menu list of programs and if I type indiweb at the command line it can’t find an application by that name.
Where is it?

indiweb is is a server, so you will not find in your application menu.

If you want to use a GUI application, try to use indiwebmanagerapp:
sudo apt-get install indiwebmanagerapp

I am confused. The description of indiwebmanager says its a simple web application to manage indi server. So how do i launch my browser to access this simple web application. I presume I launch it from the machine that hosts kstars/ekos. My configuration is a Linux desktop with all my equipment connected to it. Kstars/Ekos running on my Windows 10 laptop and communicating with indiserver on the Linux desktop. Currently I have been launching indiserver manually from the command line on the Linux desktop with all my equipment specified in the command line.
