Derek created a new topic ' USB SQM failing to connect' in the forum. 2 days ago

Anyone out there using a USB SQM? My one used to work with INDI but after a recent update it fails to connect. Actually it messes up the device somehow too. After attempting to connect with INDI I can no longer connect to it with unidhedron's device manager either unless I unplug-plug it in again. Nothing seems to appear in the logs either...

I should be able to figure out what's going on once I can get the SQM locally (its at a remote observatory now) so I'll update again once I know whats wrong

The pi is an ARM processor, the nuc and your pc are x86. They are not binary compatible,

Cant you just plug all your equipment into the PC running mint? It simplifies everything. Less setting up, less things to go wrong.

If you have a domePc (A pc in your observatory) then you don't need a PI I think... I have a PC in my observatory and its doing everything. Runs indi-server and Kstars/EKOS etc. I just installed ububtu on it and then connect to it remotely using team viewer. I didn't use a PI because I wanted to keep it as simple as possible and have less network devices to maintain. I guess its not possible for everyone though.

Thanks Ferrante,
Thanks for the tip on park/unpark too as I do use the scheduler a lot!!
My roof isnt a Talon Its a home made custom thing made from an electric hoist I bought in Aldi ( github.com/dokeeffe/indi-aldiroof )

Sometimes when I update INDI I have to recompile my driver and/or make small code tweaks to it so I'm thinking of using the built-in drivers as much as possible.

Would it be possible to use the Dome Scripting Gateway driver to control a roll off roof? Anyone doing this?
I understand that I would have to write a few scripts for connect, open, close, park, unpark, abort etc.

I have a custom indi driver for my roof but I'm looking to reduce the number of custom compiled drivers I have and use the ones that come with indi as much as possible.

Thanks,
Derek

Thanks Jasem, sorry the stupid question :-) I haven't updated in a very very long time (everything was working great). Just updated yesterday and looking forward to trying out all the new features added in the last few months

I thought it was just my own custom drivers, but I see it on the simulators too

I see this strange behavior when I click enable-debug. It enables, then instantly disables again...
Anyone else notice this?
