This means that you have never got fix from your real GPS. Instead you got fix from virtual GPS.
Are you testing this outside?

Radek Kaczorek replied to the topic 'Indi1.8.2 conflict with oacapture1.6.0' in the forum. yesterday

Oacapture provides own libraries and AFAIK does not (and did not in the past) use INDI libraries. I have suggested to author to use shared libraries provided by INDI but I don't think it was implemented. So there aocapture does not depend on INDI, and as the result of providing own libraries it conflicts with INDI and it always did eg. QHY libraries. It's not gonna change unless james (the author of oacapture) uses INDI libraries instead providing his own.

While using real GPS you need to disable virtualgps service.
Run in terminal:

sudo systemctl stop virtualgps
sudo systemctl disable virtualgps

You only need it if you don't have real GPS connected to your system. If you do GPSD service reads both real and virtual GPSes, which is not what you want.

Dear All, could you please set up separate topics for separate issues?
Discussing each and every issue in a single topic makes it really hard for users to follow certain threads.

It can't be. There is no dependence between the two. This is just coincience

You need to disable virtualgps, which is part of the system, for users that don't have GPS but want some of the system functionalities work for them.
sudo systemctl stop virtualgps
sudo systemctl disable virtualgps

where did you hide the Ubuntu Date and Time-Setting ?
When I´m in the Field with no internet, I need to set the time manualy.
I´ve googled for this, but at astroberry I don´t find this :
Change the date and time
Open the Activities overview and start typing Settings.
Click on Settings.
Click Details in the sidebar.
Click Date & Time in the sidebar to open the panel.
If you have the Automatic Date & Time switch set to on, your date and time should update automatically if you have an internet connection.


Unfortunatelly Raspbian Desktop Environment (LXDE) does not include a standard tool to set the date and time. The easiest way is to issue a command on the command line, the following are some examples...
sudo date -s "Mon Aug  12 20:14:11 UTC 2014"
sudo date 06211345
sudo date –s “June 21 13:45”
sudo date –s “21 June 13:45 2012”
sudo date –s “13:45 June 21”
sudo date –s “Jun 21 1:45pm”
sudo date –s “Next Thursday 13:45”

It's actually good change request... I will need to add it to the system in a future release.

Remove "-e" from postinstall script. It will let you complete the script.
I believe that postinstall script requesting a password at any stage means that you are running it as a regular user, not root. Running apt with escalated privileges i.e. sudo apt install whatever runs the debian installation scripts as root, so no password is necessary.
Could you record a screencast of what is happening on your side?

I run everything from RPi (including KStars/EKOS). When I need to focus manually I run framing on Ekos Focus tab, then start VNC client on my smartphone, adjust focus and preview focus / HFR on my phone. bVNC allows to zoom in any part of screen on the phone, which is very handy.

John, it's very kind of you with all these proverbs and other great remarks. However most of them are somehow missing the point.
Just get vanilla Raspbian Buster with desktop directly from raspberrypi.org and compare what is the difference between Astroberry and the original image. Moreover, just install it and see yourself how many packages need to be updated right after installation. This is NORMAL for every system outhere. You expectation to have up to date system in the image is out of blue. None system is provided like that. Astroberry is not different in this matter and will never be.

Forgive me, but I just do not get how come your system is missing syslog and clears the logs after reboot. The most probable cause is that your SD card is dying. I will not get into convincing you that you are just wrong blaming Astroberry.

There are a few options for you and issues you have:
1) Move to other system and forget about Astroberry
2) Build your own system, which will do whatever you want it to do
3) Use other users' help in your particular issues - there's over 1200 of them in 60 countries. I'm sure someone can help you out, especially that they must somehow deal with this poor system, because they don't report bugs you're discussing here.

Last but not least - this is open source community and open source software. You have access to all the sources and full entitlement to submit patches, improvements and fix bugs to help other users. I would be really glad if you do.
