Sorry, noob question here: I'm out in the field with a rig that cannot connect to my equipment per the difficulties in this thread. I am running the nightly release from Monday morning, but what I need is the latest stable release according to Jasem's instructions above. The problem I have is that my Ubuntu 20.04 MiniPC is on a local ethernet LAN with no Internet access. I do have access to slow WiFi, but when I connect to that I cannot seem to connect to NoMachine (likely the port is blocked - outside of my control) and thus cannot remote in and install KStars. I have a portable monitor, but forgot my keyboard/mouse at home 3 hours away.
Is there any way that I can download KStars-stable on a Mac/Windows machine, drop it on a USB flash drive and install from there?
Hi. I am confused as to the current status of what is fully fixed and available. For me, building from latest GitHub on Ubuntu 20.10 amd64 still has at least the Pegasus drivers broken. Reviewing this thread there are conflicting statuses. In somer instances the problems are pegged to bad packages, but building from source supposedly works (not my experience); other entries point to possible C++ inheritance issues (so building wouldn't fix that).
Can Jasem or other knowledgeable individual please recap the current status and whether those of us still out-of-luck should be looking for a source update from which to compile a working version or if it is best to look to nightly builds.
Just to confirm that I am building properly on Ubuntu 20.10 amd64, my steps are:
Make sure environment is up-to-date (sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade -y)
Install all required build pre-requisites as well as ccache
Then perform the following (completing the set of operations for each package before proceeding to the next package):
Clone (or pull latest) master branches from the following links:
Hi. Still have some issues. I used my rig last on 24 April - everything was working fine using QHYIII178M guide and QHY294MM.
Now I try and no camera recognised. If I swap the QHY294 to ZWO294 then partially works but guide camera comes up then goes down repeatedly:2021-05-08T16:22:01 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is offline.2021-05-08T16:22:01 Guider port from QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is ready.2021-05-08T16:22:01 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is online.2021-05-08T16:22:00 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is offline.2021-05-08T16:22:00 Guider port from QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is ready.2021-05-08T16:22:00 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is online.2021-05-08T16:21:58 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is offline.2021-05-08T16:21:58 Guider port from QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is ready.2021-05-08T16:21:58 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is online.2021-05-08T16:21:57 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is offline.2021-05-08T16:21:57 Guider port from QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is ready.2021-05-08T16:21:57 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is online.2021-05-08T16:21:55 QHY CCD QHY5III178M-dae is offline.
Same issue if I connect QHY294MMOS: VERSION="18.04.5 LTS (Bionic Beaver)"
Latest (stable) updates of kstars (06 May I think).
Tried with Ubuntu 20.04 but even worse will not see any QHY camera.
Maybe it is hardware /USB issue ?
All cameras connected through 12v powered USB3 hub.
