AstroPi3 Scripts revised #56795

any help would be much appreciated...


Hi Jasonmur,

I had the same issue before and had to find the password in the Github script. I think the password for the Field WiFi is the name of the Field WiFi access point and then suffixed with '_password'. For example, if your FieldWifi access point that you want to connect to is called "MyPi_FieldWifi_5G", then the password would be "MyPi_FieldWifi_5G_password" (follow same approach for the 2.4GHz access point which does not have '5G' in it).

Hi feilimb.
Thanks for the quick response.
I believe you have it, because I did find a note to myself on my phone with something_password...I was being too cryptic for my own good!
Thanks for the help, I'll give it a go when home.

Thanks so much. Feilimb.
I believe you are right because I did have a note on my phone to myself with desktop_password. Didn't make sense to me, but now it does.
Appreciate the help. Thanks again.

Thanks. This is the third time I've tried to respond to your helpful reply. But I can't see anything from me appearing in the forum, apart from my initial query.
Turned it to be
raspberrypi_password

Thanks for all the work. I installed the scripts on a Rock64 with Debian and it works great over the network after I created a share for file transfer.
My only problem is can not find a VNC viewer I understand which will enable direct Ethernet cable access for a win10 computer to the Rock64.

AstroPi3 Scripts revised #63098
I'm configuring a setup from a clean install of Raspberry OS (64bit) and found KStars Master will not compile unless I built and installed stellarsolver first. Therefore this step should be added to the script.
Also, if you have a chance, Please add Firecapture and OaCapture to setup. I have had difficulty installing them myself.
Thank you kindly.

Yes, the raspbian script that must build kstars from source.
With the inclusion of Stellarsolver in the master, it will not build without Stellarsolver installed first as cmake looks for references to it.

I have to add I have been able to connect to Rock 64 Debian with real VNC viewer over the network from the script installation. After some additional work I have been able to connect directly to the Share on the Rock64 with a direct Ethernet link. But x11 still throws me out attempting any VNC viewing through direct Ethernet link.
Any ideas how to modify X11 install to accept direct Ethernet link VNC viewer with password.?
Ray.

Hello,

I just read a reply the 64 bit question which said, if and only if Raspberry PI 4 8G. What is the compelling reason? Are vendor products turning ARM64? Or are Linux ARM64 packages pushing the need?
