sudo dpkg -P indi-altair

and then try again

sudo apt install indi-altaircam

dpkg will probably complain that you are trying to uninstall indi-altair because indi-full depends on it. In that case you can do

sudo dpkg -P indi-altair indi-full

and then

sudo apt install indi-full

which then also should install indi-altaircam automatically.


HTH, Wouter


Thanks a lot and it is well done. Solved!

Tom replied to the topic '7 ports powered USB hub issue with EKOS' in the forum. 7 days ago

Hi,

There are few scenarios here:

1. After I disconnect everything and only plug in the arduino focuser in the powered USB hub, lsusb shows nothing about ardunio but only this.

tom_astro@TomAstroPi:~$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 012: ID 2109:2812 VIA Labs, Inc. VL812 Hub
Bus 001 Device 011: ID 2109:2812 VIA Labs, Inc. VL812 Hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMSC9512/9514 Fast Ethernet Adapter
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9514 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMC9514 Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub


2. When I unplug the focuser and plug in only mount, it shows this (The mount usb is directly connect to one of the RPI3 USB port. Not going through powered USB hub)

tom_astro@TomAstroPi:~$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 017: ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial Port
Bus 001 Device 012: ID 2109:2812 VIA Labs, Inc. VL812 Hub
Bus 001 Device 011: ID 2109:2812 VIA Labs, Inc. VL812 Hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMSC9512/9514 Fast Ethernet Adapter
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9514 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMC9514 Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub


3. When I plug in both of the focuser (powered usb hub) and mount (RPI3 usb port), it shows this:

tom_astro@TomAstroPi:~$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 017: ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial Port
Bus 001 Device 012: ID 2109:2812 VIA Labs, Inc. VL812 Hub
Bus 001 Device 011: ID 2109:2812 VIA Labs, Inc. VL812 Hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMSC9512/9514 Fast Ethernet Adapter
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9514 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMC9514 Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub


4. But if I plug in both the mount and focuser into RPI3 usb ports, it shows this (Which is never go through the powered usb hub)

tom_astro@TomAstroPi:~$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 022: ID 2341:8036 Arduino SA Leonardo (CDC ACM, HID)
Bus 001 Device 017: ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial Port
Bus 001 Device 012: ID 2109:2812 VIA Labs, Inc. VL812 Hub
Bus 001 Device 011: ID 2109:2812 VIA Labs, Inc. VL812 Hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMSC9512/9514 Fast Ethernet Adapter
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9514 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMC9514 Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub


Is it because the powered usb hub not compatible with rpi3? or anything that I need to do with this usb hub?

Please advice.

Tom

Tom created a new topic ' 7 ports powered USB hub issue with EKOS' in the forum. 7 days ago

Hi all,

I am having a problem setting up my 7 ports powered usb hub with EKOS.

1. I am using AZEQ5GT mount which connect to EKOS with USB cable directly plug in into my RPI3.
2. My powered usb hub also connect directly into my RPI3. But on the usb hub, 3 devices are connected which are arduino Leonardo focuser, qhyccd and ASI120mc guider.

Now the problem occurred when arduino focuser(on usb hub) and my mount are fighting for ttyUSB0. So, my question is how to make sure both of these ports are having different ttyUSBx?

Serial port mapping not working in my case too, I've tried.....

Please help......

This is so great if you can take over on this request. I believe using the filter wheel simulator will works as well.
What we need for start are:
1. duration customizable.
2. a dialog box will pop up asking us to manually change the filter.
Thanks again for helping up.
Regards,
Tom
