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.

The same here. Trying to start with:
./start.sh

but it fails with:
/FireCapture_v2.6_armhf/start.sh: line 33: ./jre/bin/java: No such file or directory

It helps a bit, ( I set 5 frames), but it still is far-far away from the performance under AB.

Hi!

This is not for Stellarmate OS, but for <strong>Ubuntu Mate 20.04.1 LTS (Focal Fossa) 64bit</strong>, but maybe helps to someone.

The reason why on this system the execution of <em>start.sh</em> fails with <em>No such file or directory</em> is simple:
Firecapture v2.6 is a <strong>32bit application</strong> and by default it is not allowed to execute on 64bit OS.

To enable Firecapture v2.6 on 64bit Ubuntu Mate we need to run following from command line:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture armhf
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libc6:armhf libncurses5:armhf libstdc++6:armhf libxext6:armhf libxrender1:armhf libxtst6:armhf libusb-1.0:armhf
 
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/your/FireCapture/folder

Happy capturing!

Stellarmate is Raspbian now, not Mate. Is this the same for Raspbian?

Thank you very much for posting the apt install command line to enable armhf libraries needed for FireCapture on Pi 64-bit ubuntu!

Unfortunately I still get an error for a missing library here:
mpi:/usr/share/FireCapture_v2.6_armhf $ ./start.sh
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /usr/share/FireCapture_v2.6_armhf/jre/lib/arm/libawt_xawt.so: libXi.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I've tried fixing this by doing
sudo apt install libXi:armhf

But apt can't find any such package:
E: Unable to locate package libXi:armhf

Any advice about how to resolve this?

Lot of problems with FireCapture on Raspberry PI. As this software is not part of INDI or KStars/EKOS, perhaps you will find more support on its own group groups.io/g/firecapture/topics

Hi,

you should not use capital X , and forgot the 6

After al lot of searching this solved it for me: sudo apt install libxi6:armhf

Regards,

Paul
