Jerry Black replied to the topic 'AstroPi3 Scripts revised' in the forum. yesterday

I seemed to be having the same issue with my Nikon Z7 on my Odroid-N2 (which I attributed to my permitting updates to the system until things broke). I re-flashed my Odroid-N2 system, did a system update and used Rob's AstroPi3.sh script to get things working again. The only addition for me was re-compiling the driver for my rtl8822bu wifi dongle (which I see now Rob also has a script for) and using NoMachine for remote desktop access (apparently there is no EGL/GPU Acceleration on X11 on the N2).
Thank you Rob.

Jerry Black replied to the topic 'Setting up the Odroid-N2 to use Kstars/Ekos' in the forum. yesterday

After eventually tweaking things until my Nikon Z7 wouldn't connect in the Indi Control panel, I re-flashed my Odroid-N2 system and used rlancaste's AstroPi3.sh script www.indilib.org/forum/general/5524-astro...scripts-revised.html to get things working again. The only addition for me was re-compiling the driver for my rtl8822bu wifi dongle (which I see now rlancaste also has a script for) and using NoMachine for remote desktop access. Thank you Rob.

Jerry Black replied to the topic 'Where does Plate Solve download its fits files?' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

So it appears my Nikon Z7 had been inadvertently set to JPeg Fine capture format. After setting it back to RAW, the Plate solving is now getting and attempting to solve (which it probably would do successfully, if it wasn't 10 AM).

I do have a follow up question, the Plate Solver issues the following warning:

Failed to open index directory: "/media/odroid/rootfs/astrometry"
I'm not sure why it would be trying to open that directory.
In my astrometry.cfg file I have the
add_path /usr/share/astrometry
which the index dialog appears to have recognized.

So my question is where is this roots/astrometry directory specified as a requirement?

Thanks

Jerry Black created a new topic ' Where does Plate Solve download its fits files?' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

Hi,

Currently having problems plate solving. Something has changed (not necessarily Ekos). Where does Plate Solving store the image it captures?

a) If I try to plate solve, the DSLR captures the image, but never completes downloading the file. I can't see in the logs where it's trying to save the file. It never gets to begin ( local) plate solving.

b) I can capture images using the capture module, which are downloaded to the local /media/odroid/sd

c) if I try a Load & Slew in Plate Solving, it will successfully load and solve one of these previously captured images [ from b) above]. It can't get a new image to compare to, which is consistent with not completing a download from the camera in part a).

I suspect I have a path problem or permission problem.

Thanks

I don't know if it's possible on the Rpi4, but you might try NoMachine as a vnc replacement.

Well, Jasem's successfully built 1.0 works for me on the Oroid Ubuntu-mate 18.04, including auto launch and start at system startup.
Thanks again.

I will wait for it on the nightly. Thanks!

BTW, I rebuilt my Odroid again from scratch this morning, avoiding the sudo installs that messed up my install of INDIWebManagerApp earlier. Version 0.9 works without any errors so far :)
I'm looking forward to version 1.0

Maybe I did an install of one of the packages? indiweb? as root when it shouldn't have been?

Yes firefox is the browser.

The tool tips look good. When I click on the "Open WebManager" button on my machine, I get:

SUCCESS!
Recompiled
python exec folder /usr/bin/
indi-web path /usr/local/bin/indi-web

Note that the resultant path is:
"2019-06-26T11:45:28: export PATH=/usr/bin/:/usr/bin/:/usr/share/indi:usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin"

There is still a missing / in there, but I'm not sure how to correct that or what added it or when.

Thanks you Rob

Hope this was worth your effect (and that I'm not a one-off case).

One note, it wasn't obvious (to me) earlier that "Apply" needed to be applied at each config entry change. Being on the bottom row next to OK and Cancel led me to think that was to be applied as a final step.
