Try "sudo chmod -R 776 *"
Make sure you are in the /Pictures directory before executing this command.

Two things:

1. Run this command: chmod -R u+rwX,go+rX,go-w /home/stellarmate/Pictures
2. Update to the latest packages as the above issue is resolved already with the latest KStars release available for StellarMate.

ok I did update to 1.5.1 but all of the subs I took last night on 1.5.0 are read protected, will this command change all of those to be readable ??

to run the command I just go to the terminal and enter the command you list in #1 ??

ok that seems to have solved it thanks

Same with me.
I have the new version and it still creates the directories as rwx - - - - -, but I wrote a quick script to chmod them and a desktop icon to launch it.
I put the file ChmodPics.sc in my directory I have called MyScripts (you can put it anywhere you want, but you will have to change the desktop file to point to your location)
I put the file ChmodPictures.desktop in the "/home/stellarmate/Desktop" directory.
Of course you will need to rename them, removing the .txt at the end.
I just double-click the icon when I'm ready to download my files.

I read were you can call the script right from the desktop file... which would be the best way. But I never could get it to work.

So directories are created as 700? Alright so I have to get the root cause of this... KStars process should be running as 'stellarmate' users .. so why would it make 600 files and 700 directories by default?

EDIT: I just checked and the directory permissions appear OK.
stellarmate@stellarmate:~/Pictures/Light $ ls -lh
total 8.0K
drwxr-xr-x 2 stellarmate stellarmate 4.0K Mar  1 05:41 Green
drwxr-xr-x 2 stellarmate stellarmate 4.0K Mar  1 05:41 Red

I have taken the plunge and replaced my Pi3 with the Pi 4.
All seems to work well with HEQ5, 294MC, 224MC and Pegasus PPB.

One question I have is should the Update button in the StallaMate dashboard work?
Mine runs the percentage usual goes to about 3% then I get a message saying the update was successful but the update icon remains red with a little red exclamation mark next to it.

After pairing a bluetooth device, I don't know how to assign a serial port to the device. The device is BTdir. This is connected to EQ6.

One other question on your configuring of the hard coded IP address. Did you use the network tools GUI that's built into Linux? I've been using this tool as I thought it was the preferred way to do this type of thing, but its leading to constant soft disconnects of the interface.

Thanks, Craig

Decided to give StellarMate another try on Rpi 4 with a fresh install of 1.5.1.

Using the iPad app, I get an error when attempting to access the desktop. The iPad app is version 1.9.13. I think I heard there is a newer iOS app, but my version is the latest on the App Store. The error occurs both when I am connected to the hotspot and when connected to my home WiFi.

Attached is a screen shot of the error. I had the same issue that prevented me from using 1.4.6. I have cleared the browser cache on my iPad, as suggested on the Facebook group.
