HI,

When I run the ./start.dh, I always get this error message:

./start.sh: line 33: ./jre/bin/java: No such file or directory

I check it and it's there

I gave this a try. It worked - thank you very much for great instructions!
UI, however, is not very responsive...
I adjusted the heap to 512 - it became better but still sluggish.
I tried Astroberry which comes with Firecapture preinstalled - it's more responsive there. I wonder why...

You can make it much more responsive by adjusting the performance settings in FireCapture:

Try the different pre-sets and see how it affects responsiveness and pick one that suits you.

I get this same result on Ubuntu 20.04.1 on an Odroid-N2, but I haven't figured out the problem yet.

I have tried Firecapture on both Astroberry & Stellermate and it's much slower on Stellarmate. I have the same FC performance settings, I am running on a new install of Stellermate Updated on an RPI 4. I have the heap adjusted as specified.
It is slow without running Kstars in the background. I am concerned that if I have the whole system running with guiding it may not work.
Before this I was just running Indi/EKOS and everything was fine. If I wanted to capture planetary videos, I ran Firecapture on a seperate PC and once I had centered and focused the planet in EKOS., I then unplugged from Ekos and plugged my ZWO camera direct into my laptop, leaving EKOS to guide. Firecapture was very responsive on the laptop, the SER files are huge, around 2.5gb for 4 mins even with a restricted FOV. I wonder if Firecapture is just too much for a little PI.

I've been using FireCapture 2.6 on Astroberry on a Raspberry Pi4 with great success. I've KStars/Ekos running in the background guiding the mount (running OnStep). My camera is ZWO ASI120MM-S running with USB3.0. Taking videos of Mars and Jupiter I was able to capture 70fps frames with a ROI of 400x400px. When I increase the frame size I must reduce the frame rate.

On this video you can see a screen recording from the vnc client running on on iPad connected via wifi Astroberry on RPI4



And the results :)

Great thread here, thanks a ton for the installation script @stefanr, saved tons of time. Just sharing with someone who can come here for troubleshooting - if FC keeps crashing after recording with this error in the end of dump:

"Error I see ./jre/bin/java: symbol lookup error: /home/pi/Desktop/Fire Capture/Ephemerides.so: undefined symbol: _ZN5Vec3DC1Ev"

all you have to do is delete Ephemnerides.so file (or rename it for later use if you want) and it solved the problem right away.

With reguards to the "Error I see ./jre/bin/java: symbol lookup error: /home/pi/Desktop/Fire Capture/Ephemerides.so: undefined symbol: _ZN5Vec3DC1Ev" I did try the resolution to rename or delete the Ephemmerides.so library and that did seem to resolve the issue.

My question is what is that library used for and is it needed?

Thanks

Has anyone found a solution to the lag? I have installed the FC on SM as it was described (many thanks for it) with heap 1024 then 512 but it's extremely slow the whole system.
Under Astrobbery is works like a charm, I don't understand what could be the difference.

I don't understand it either, why it's so slow and resource-hungry under SM. Under AB it's fine.

Have a look at the Display Framerate (Top left button in the display frame). A default installation sets this to MAX, which a RPi cannot handle properly. Reduce to a value that allows smooth operation and you'll be fine.
