Hello

I need help I am configuring a LX200 10 "classic with Kstars + Ekos + Indi updated to the latest version.
I have tested it on different machines, astroberry and Mint 20.04. Both give a similar error, it detects the telescope well but when I want to make a track from kstars it gives an error. From the control panel it does the goto well.
The telescope icon always stays at the coordinates below the horizon:
JNow: 23h 57m 52s -00 ° 14 '00 "
J2000: 23h 57m 52s -00 ° 14 '00 "
AzAlt: 357 ° 42 '58 "-46 ° 57' 12"

this is the debug capture :

Replied by aeskartin on topic no tracking LX200 classic

Hello

I have already solved the problems, I put it here in case someone helps you.

They were several failures together.

The first two errors seem to correspond to the following
I have used a USB RS232 type FTDI adapter that for some reason seems to introduce noise, check connections, connectors and everything was fine, but with another Moxa type adapter it works correctly.

The other two caveats ...
the error with the coordinates, I put in the kstars configuration that the mount configure the software and everything solved ..

The last errors do not come out either, I guess it is a consequence of previous ones.

Long live the LX200 Classic
