All back to normal!!
Most recent PPA-Version works with the SX-Cameras and SX-Adaptive-Optics. What a relief!
Many, many thanks to Jasem: Great work!
I hope you can follow the path for a stable PPA. Nevertheless it seems that I have to go into compiling the source code myself, as I always wanted.

I suppose indilib is undergoing some deep changes, isn't it?
It is my only explanation for the the following new quirks, I'm experiencing with the latest build of Indilib.
1. "indi_sx_ccd" gets down with the Starlight Trius SX-H35 and
2. "indi_sx_ao" can't connect anymore to the adaptive optics.
As you see in the logs, the guiding cam Starlight LodestarX2 gets connected, whereas the Trius is not.

in the past these devices where always working flawlessly and unimpeachable. What is happening now?

I'm happy for your help
Toni

Yesterday I've got a bad surprise: "indi_lynx_focus" is crashing! I don't know from which update I got this ugly bug, because I couldn't get some spare time to use my observatory in the last months. (I'm downloading very often the Ubuntu-Updates on my Laptop)

Can somebody help me?

Hi Peter

It's me again.

The goof news are that "libindi" ist ok! Further investigations led me to the conclusion, that the issue is due to quirks in the basics of "udev" & "usb".
The facts are the following:
The missing information of the "report descriptor" is the crucial point. Without the knowledge of the structure of this descriptor it is not possible to write to the device. There are indeed many problems with "udev" concerning these informations, as my inquiries showed: In the web, you can find hundreds of messages with complains about faulty return values of this "report descriptor".
I found out, that I can get a stable connection ("lsusb" is indeed gving back a correct "report descriptor"), if - after the first insertion of the USB-plug - I "unbind" the device and "bind" it again immediately ("echo 1-5:1.0 > /sys/bus/drivers/usbhid/unbind" resp. "echo .... /bind"). After this procedure the Maxi-Filterwheel can be activated without any problems! Moreover there are no more problems as long as the wheel remains physically connected.
I very curious about the reasons inducing this strange characteristics of *udev". Writing a "udev-rule" to overcome the this issue is a bit unsatisfactory.
Is there really nobody out there undergoing similar problems with SX-Filterwheels or other devices?

Sincerly
Antonio

Hi Peter

... I forgot to mention, that I tried on three different computers with three different settings The sequence is always the same and exactly producible on all settings (different sockets, with hub, with direct cable, ....). I always had some problems the SX-Maxi_Filerwheel in the past. But now it is almost unusable!

Of course I tried the wheel in Windows (with APT) on ASCOM and it works flawlessly!
So iI suppose there has to be a problem with the SX-Driver or the basic routines of the INDI.Library itself. I have some programming knowledge, but never took a look inside INDI. That's why it would be very nice, if somebody could give me a hint, where and how to start the debugging.

Greetings
Antonio

Toni Schriber created a new topic ' Focus Boss II (Feather Touch Digital)' in the forum. 2 years ago

Hi all!
Two years ago I became a member of a local Astrogroup-Aficionados. Since then I had the oportunity to upgrade our small observatory with all the devices required to do serious astrophotography. After I've got in contact with INDILib and Ekos I decided to try it the "linux-way"! Till today this was a quite stony way, but I managed to overcome all throwbacks and now it's an almost functional observatory.

Alas, there is a problem I have with the Focus Boss II. With the focus_lynx_driver I can activate the focuser and all seems o.k. As soon as I start the framing the v-curve-Diagramm looses the numbering of the tick-axis and begins to count the frames and never ends! I also noticed that the position of the focuser is not reflected in the ticks-couter of the focuser panel, whereas this works if I'm focusing manually.

I've already tried all possible settings and I would be happy if someone can give me some hints whats going wrong.

Sincerely
Toni
