Hi, I've been trying to update the Starbook driver to the newly released v0.4, but no matter what I do, I end up with v0.3. I've tried doing a full 'nightly', but still the same...any ideas? bound to be me.....
Have been using these commands:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/indinightly
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indi-starbook or sudo apt-get install indi-full kstars-bleeding gsc
any help would be great...

Hi,
I've been using the driver for a week.... not too many restarts.. really pleased to have found out about your hard work...
The only problems are the UTC settings throwing up errors and the ip address...keeps setting itself to 192.168.0.102:80 even just after a server restart.
Thanks again

You guess right... Ran XP for years without problems, but then they stopped support..my astro camera is nolonger supported..Have always had linux running for meade lx..... Peter's driver was great, but yet again nolonger supported due to lack of interest from Vixen. Now I can set the observatory up with a RPI3...
by the way, programmers are not that bad... Dad was one for many years....
Let me know when a new version comes out, and I'll do my best to break / make it work ... 2 mounts and rempte on RPI.
Thanks again.

Yet again , thanks....thought I was going to have to stay with ms virus for the rest of my days....

Hi, just found out about your driver....what a find... I have 2 sxw mounts with the giant gameboys that I use for outreach. I've tried to install as per the instructions on the indi devices page, but I end up with the following error:

Package indi-starbook is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

Do you have any ideas? or is it me .....
Thanks again

Hi Jasem,
thanks for your reply. Before my machine crashed, I was running 32 bit ubuntu 16. I was able to use eqmod. Since then I'm running 64 bit ubuntu 16, with an on-step controller. I tried to install from the PPA, and get errors......I'm unable to install bleeding ekos....
I've install 'all' drivers from the tar.gz, and get the on-step listed.
I've just retried from PPA, and it works.....guess I'm trying to do too much at once.
Thanks for your help
