Thanks for the suggestion. I tried to stop and disable AppArmor , but the driver still does not work.

Ah, that if what you meant. I have the original Meade DSI Pro mono, 1 by your numbering.

Never heard of different versions. How do I see which one I have?
I'm also on Ubuntu 16.04....

Thanks, great to know. What OS are you running?

It is odd that it just suddenly stopped to work after having worked fine for years....

Hi,
I have a Meade DSI III mono and that works fine with latest version....so I guess it’s an issue at your end.. :)


Mine is NOT a DSI III, but the original Meade DSI Pro so not the same camera as you have. It have been working fine for several years, but suddenly stopped working in indi on RPI/Ubuntu 16.04. It still works fine in Windows, with the same cable. I guess the error is related to this message:
<strong>2019-03-11T19:32:38: Driver indi_dsi_ccd: terminate called after throwing an instance of 'DSI::device_read_error'
2019-03-11T19:32:38: Driver indi_dsi_ccd: what(): libusb_bulk_transfer error Operation not permitted

So SOMETHING is happening...

Hi!

I just noticed that since december 5th 2018, my Meade DSI Pro have not been working in indi. It works fine in windows. When I start indi with indi_dsi_ccd and try to issue

 indi_setprop "DSI.CONNECTION.CONNECT=On"

I get the following error from the indi server:

Hi!

Just want to report the great news, that a qhy developer posted a link to a new sdk in the thread on the qhy forum (see link above), and after installing it my camera is working in both Indi and ezcap on RPi3. Hopefully the fix will be in Indi in the near future.

Best regards,
Søren
