Hi there !

So using usb is fine, but I'm not able to have the BT working on my Asus Tinker board running armbian. It seems that RFCOMM is not available. I tryed to build a new kernel with the proper options, but it seems building a new kernel is not so straightforward :-(
So I think It will stick to the usb version.

Also I forgot to mention that it works perfectly using usb.

Hi,

So I made some progress. The tic and HC-05 are connected. HC-05 is well connected to the Tinker Board, but I can no manage to have RFCOMM TTY working. It seems not to be avaialble with my kernel. I created a new post on Armbian forum to get help, so stay tuned.

Hi Helge, It's been a long time :-) - I eventually found an opportunity to use a pololul tic and your code to run a focuser on a new setup. The Tic software is now installed on my Tinker Board, and I'm waiting for a Pololu tic t825. I'll keep you updated with my progress.
Clear Skies

According to the G7020-KT datasheet ( innovictor.com/pdf/UBX-G7020-Kx_DataShee...01)_Confidential.pdf section 6.1.1) , pin 8 is for usb_DM (D-) and pin 10 is for usb DP (D+).
According to the usb connector design central pin 2 is for D- and pin 3 is for D+, pin 1 is for vcc and pin 4 is for gnd
So if I not wrong this shoudl be something like this :



Please double check vcc and ground before plugin !!

Hi Astronerd,
Take a look at this page for example : www.hobbytronics.co.uk/usb-connector-pinout
Vcc and gnd are easy to guess, maybe lookong at the other side of the pcb can help on Tx and Rx.

Well I guess so. I'm planning to connect the EQ6 and the Focuser using BT, but did not try yet. I'll keep you updated as soon as I'm able to test that.

Hi,
Not on mac, but on windows using remote solving I have the same kind of issue. Kstars connected remotely on indi server running on a TinkerBoard - posted a question about that already.

Same for me installing libqt5sql5-sqlite solved the issue. TinkerBoard S Armbian Ubuntu 18.04 also.
