It continues from version 2.98, but seems to be unable to read data of What's Interesting.

SkyWatcheer Alt-Az will crash the driver.

I have confirmed the above two points.

Thank you for your reply.

I described the order of setting parts so as not to get lost in setting.

I was accustomed to the operation, so I did not notice, but since many people seemed to be confused by the relationship between the control panel and Ekos, I mentioned in the request, but I felt the wall of words. . .

I do not mention that removing the INDI control panel.

In terms of control panel like Control Panel, it is said that relationships are clearly defined by dividing the device setting items of the driver and the control items and items in the client.
In the present situation there are parts that are mixed each other.

Although Ekos is a front end for control, it also has equipment setting items, and the control panel also has control items.

I feel that relationships will become clearer after organizing this.I do not mention that removing the INDI control panel.

I am not talking about my personal opinion.
It means that there are items that cause operational inconsistency in the described part.

I am already in operation, but with the introduction of StellarMate, several users have changed the environment from WINDOWS.

I wrote a blog so that new users will not get lost, but it took a long time to explain the setting.

(It is Japanese, it describes the setting procedure of server, driver, Ekos.)

That is because there is a part where server, driver, client relationships are complicated.
(Especially Ekos)

Even when the function of familiar CanonDslr got wrong, it took a while to notice that it was a check on the driver's new item.

I feel it is difficult to set many functions for those who start from now.

Although the example described by me is also one plan, I think that rules such as setting are important because it is a multifunctional environment.

Please consider the future improvement.

· Relationship between server and driver
Currently it is an operating system that starts servers and drivers all at once, but EKOS has a different procedure for local server and remote server.
As for the server, it always runs, and the server passes the driver list to the client, thereby resolving conflicts in client configuration.

· About EKOS's profile editor module
If you change to a procedure that selects a server first and then selects a list loaded from the server, the procedure for the local server is the same as for the remote server. By using this operation method, even clients such as ASCOM wrapper can operate with client.

· About the INDI control panel
At present, setting and control items are mixed.
I think that confusion with EKOS will decrease by displaying only setting items like ASCOM.

By resolving the above, I think that the setting procedure will be standardized and confusion will be gone.

Please consider in future upgrading.

In Japan, the appearance of StellaMate has increased the number of users who start INDI, EKOS, and KSTARS with RaspberryPi.

blogs.yahoo.co.jp/t_studio_astro/folder/605849.html

However, as many users were perplexed with the operation and setting, I described the setting and operation procedures on the blog.

Although it is a Japanese blog, you can read many parts by using a translation engine etc.
I hope it will be helpful to beginner's operation.

By noticing this blog, I noticed a factor that makes the setting procedure etc complicated.

Items noticed will be listed in the request list.
