I tested the new Mac version and all is good.
The Setup panel is open on the first run if Python and indiweb is not installed.
The GSC install work fine, without problem with the default directory.

Then I compiled and tested on Linux (Ubuntu 18.04 x86_64). No problem after installing the cmake requirement.
The application work fine.

Thank you, this last version work fine!

One minor problem with the GSC, when you click Install it just show a message "Folder does not exists".
Maybe because ~/Library/Application Support/INDIWebManagerApp/ do not exists.

Hi Rob,

Just tested your webmanager application on a clean MacOS.

Install work fine, I have to open the setup to install python and indiweb.
For convenience for new users maybe this page can open automatically on the first run if the application is not found? or a simplified dialog that do the same as the Install button?

The server start but then it fail to load a driver. the messages are:

Just remark that for indiserver running in Contents/MacOS/indi the Framework path is ../../Framework . maybe this is the error.
Or need @rpath instead of @executable_path/../Frameworks

TIS as a repo with udev for other camera, but it rely on a binary extension loader:
github.com/TheImagingSource/tiscamera/tree/master/data/udev

Not sure if this concern any camera used for astronomy.
They also have instruction for installation on Linux. Maybe the doc can link to this page:

Charles,
This camera use the uvcvideo driver but it is not recognized automatically.

The solution is to add a udev rule :
sudo vi /etc/udev/rules.d/80-dbk21-camera.rules

in the file add:

ATTRS{idVendor}=="199e", ATTRS{idProduct}=="8101",  RUN+="/sbin/modprobe -b uvcvideo"

ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="drivers", ENV{DEVPATH}=="/bus/usb/drivers/uvcvideo", \
  RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'echo 199e 8101 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/uvcvideo/new_id'"

Thank you Jasem.
I will add information and screen shot as soon I recover my home internet line that was broken by a thunderstorm today. At the moment I use a slow mobile phone and this is very inconvenient.

Philippe, I will update the documentation, no problem.
Now it is connected it must work fine. I use it for auto-focus every clear night.
In the case you get error message about incomplete command or value you can solve them by increasing Option/Polling period form 500 to 1000.
