good morning.

I also tried to install indi and kstars on xubuntu 22.04LTS but the" indi-full" package conflicts with the basic indi packages integrated into the new version of ubuntu ( libindidriver1).

So impossible to install a lot of PPA driver only the Ubuntu indi driver.


After New verification un sky. Saturn is not at the good place. Just Moon.



On last kstars ( 3.3.2) i have a bug.

for exemple, at Paris (france), at 16/07/2019 i see Jupiter in wrong place ( same for mercury, very bad position) but saturn and Moon position is good.
fo mars and venus, position is little bad

mercury position is very very bad.

In attached is see same sky at same position and same time : for Kstars (left) and stellarium (right).

Thanks for help.

actually this seems like a good solution. On the other hand, the coding in C and C ++ exceeds me. I only code in python. I am coding an interface to program the teensy with pyqt.

The focuser will not be supported by this driver because in teenastro the focuser is on another card (another teensy and usb). But nothing prevents to develop another driver for the focuser.


ok ! New thread is create :

thanks in advance for help and thanks for onstep

Hello ! nice start !

here is my fork of indi :

i have copy OnStep driver and remove PEC and Focuser part. I write new line in other file : CMaleLists.txt, drivers.xml, lx200driver.h, lx200generic.cpp

Following Kbahey's suggestion, it would be nice to put a symbolic link to the onstep functions that are identical and common to teenastro so as not to apply code.

It should remove all the part alignment to N star that is not supported by teenastro.
At first, no need to coded the part that allows you to change the mount settings on the fly.

Charles, will you be able to list the differences between teenastro and onstep so that everyone can clearly identify what he will need to do ?

Hello everyone !

Thank you again for the great job you all did on the indi_onstep driver!
Bravo, without you we never had a driver for indi !!!!

I come to solicit you again to create a new driver that will be a copy of the driver indi_onstep but slightly modified.
The goal would be to create the indi_teenastro driver!

The developer is ready to help and then to maintain it.

Unfortunately I can not help because I already develop the "NAFABox":

The project teenastro is a project of simplification and personalization of Onstep to make it accessible to the greatest number.


It's not the same problem but the command solves the problem.

This error message appears for all languages (kde) and only Xenial.


Hello !

I tried to install the package "language-pack-kde-fr" to have Kstars in french. But I can not install it because it conflicts with the "kstars-bleeding-data" package.
It's a probleme with "kde-l10n-fr" exactly
I still saw that we could select the French language but only a part is translated.

Would you have a solution?
