I went through the process of elimination. Disconnecting thins one by one. I then replaced the V2 ubb with a version 1, still the same problem. I then grabbed a RBP1 running an older version of stellarmate and everything came back to life. It is the UBB USB Hub. On the older PI I had only done updated no upgrades. The PI that was having trouble, I had done updates and upgrades on. .... Bruce

I have found the problem for me. I use Pegasus ultimate power hub. It seems the hub has developed a problem with indi driver and Kstars dated after November of last year. Loaded a older version and problem went away.... Bruce

Raspberry pi 4 running astrobery os locally.  I rebooted the whole computer.  Sorry for my lack of linux skills.  

I am really looking forward to using this hat!

The xml file has the same permissions as all the other files. I really like this board as well. Getting this installed in EKOS is difficult because my linux skills are weak... Any other thoughts??

I have the wave share PI hat running on astroberry.  I followed all the instructions for installing it.  I see the xml file indi wmh in the usr/share/indi directory.  I can not get it to show up when I edit the ekos profile for indi devices.  Any ideas??
Second, why isn't this distributed as paart of the indi library?

Thanks Bruce

I have just recently stumbled on to the astroberry focuser.  I jumped out and bought a stepper motor PI hat that seems to be controlled by the I2C address.  After reading as many posts as I could this seems to be the wrong hat to use.  Is that correct??

I have seen mention of the PIface motor controller which seems to be dificult to come by.  What is the best stepper motor hat to get this for this project??

Thanks.... Bruce

Ok I have seen this same problem.  GPSD works no problem on the Kstars dated 8-2020.  Latest version does not work.  Telling me to configure the port accordingly means nothing to me... It should just work like it always has. Please clarify??

Jasem,
After running that last command I had success on guiding and plate solving. When I connected to the mount it threw a couple of dbug errors that quickly disappeared. On an earlier attempt here is the log file
My mount is the RST 400.

As always many thanks to you and your team of programers, this is a fine product... Bruce

Thankyou for your replies. I have used Stellarmate for ever since the RPI4 came out. So I am very familiar with how the plate solve works. This appears to be a driver issue for the RST 400 mount.
