Did a quick check with the Weather Radio driver on INDI stable and INDI nightly. Stable has the responsivity bug (button presses not working as they should), and nightly works fine. My test is not exhaustive though as my nightly system does not have much hardware attached to it. Gotta move hardware from one platform to the other.

Maybe someone who has a system working on nightly could report to confirm.

I have done some more 'shallow' investigation about the problem and have found that when you start KStars, EKOS and INDI with the xml files (.xml and .xml.default) I have the control over the buttons and can change baud rate, can connect, etc...

If I stop INDI and restart it without doing anything (i.e. delete xml's), responsivity is lost, baud rate can't be changed but device may connect, Indiduino Meteo Station would not but Weather Radio does.

If I stop INDI, open a terminal to delete the xml's and restart INDI, responsivity is recovered. So, unless what I tried is a special case, you don't have to stop/quit EKOS or KStars to get responsivity back.

I haven't tried with more that one device but I assume that the problem may lie across all devices specified in the profile.

Hope this helps and I can perform some more tests if needed. The xml files for Weather Radio are attached, renamed to .txt files.

Will do later today. Every non essential businesses will be closing today for 3 weeks and I have a few things to get before all hell breaks loose, which it already did to a certain extent. :-(

I had mentionned about unresponsive buttons in another thread (#49172) and what I had found was that if I deleted the xml files related to the driver (in ~/.indi) the buttons would be responsive again, until the xml files were created again.

Hope that info contributes to the solution.

Glad it did.

Enjoy your OnStep controller now, and clear skies to you and everyone as we don't know how long we are going to be restricted in our travels and happenings.

I'm running 18.04 LTS. Wonder if that could make a difference.

BTW, I had the display bug before the latest nightly.

I am not sure if it is similar in Astroberry but it could be the "modemmanager" taking control of the /dev/ttyACM* or /dev/ttyUSB* devices. If so, you can remove "modemmanager" with "sudo apt-get remove modemmanager", if I remember the command correctly. The other thing could be related to the udev rules file for Teensy devices. You will find info on www.pjrc.com/teensy/td_download.html under the Linux udev rules link: www.pjrc.com/teensy/49-teensy.rules .

Hope it helps.

Heelo Antonio,

Since I had many problems with Indiduino MeteoStation (connection and buttons stuck problems), I moved to using the Weather Radio firmware and driver (in the third party drivers repository) developped by Sterne-Jaeger (Wolfgang). I haven't encountered a single problem since I moved my meteo station to that software and the interface is much better, to my taste. It also works very well with my INDI distribute system. It has a WEB interface that I haven't used yet and a wireless version is in the works if I understood correctly.

The nice thing about this new MeteoStation firmware/driver is that it runs on my legacy (Indiduino MeteoStation) weather station.

Hope this helps,

Gilles

Gilles Gagnon created a new topic ' EKOS Profile Editor Issue with Delete (-) Button' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

From what I encountered yesterday, be careful when you want to edit an EKOS profile not to hit the "-" (profile delete) button instead of the Edit button as, even if you answer no to the "Are you sure you want to delete the profile?", it will delete the profile you intended to edit. This seems to happen only to the first profile for which you inadvertedly hit the "-" button. Afterward (once you lost you precious profile to be edited) answering "no" works as it should (doesn't delete further profiles). This happened on the latest stable as well as nightly build.

Wolgang, I installed/flashed the Weather Radio firmware in my MeteoStation hardware. Great work! I will adopt Weather Radio as my weather information device from now on as its much easier to use than the indiduinoMeteo with which I had connection problems in a distributed INDI environment; most often INDI would connect to the indi_duino driver not as a weather station but as the "simple switcher" driver IIRC, not much useful.

Thanks again.

Gilles

That looks great Wolfgang! I will take a look at the code as it seems to do what I intended to implement in a new driver, and more. I assume I could flash my current MeteoStation with the firmware provided by the Weather Radio. May I assume that the word 'Radio' implies that it makes use of an ESP8266 or similar WiFi device?

Thanks,

Gilles
