Lou Zyla created a new topic ' Gamepad connection' in the forum. 2 months ago

I am using Kstars/Ekos on my Windows 10 PC. The Indi server is running on an old Linux desktop. I am using the EQMod driver for my EQ6 mount. All the equipment is connected to the Linux desktop. The PC talks to the Indi server over the local network. When I setup the Indi EQMod driver I set it up to use the gamepad to control slewing, rate adjustments and syncs. The gamepad is a listed Indi driver. I was wondering since I Am running Kstars/Ekos on my Windows machine whether I can just connect the gamepad to my Windows machine rather than the Linux machine. After all the gamepad is a mouse like device and mymouse is connected directly to Windows.
On another note I wish the Indi EQMod driver incorporated audio prompts when doing certain actions. Its nice to hear an audio announcement that you have successfully changed the slew rate. This is the way the Ascom version works.

I am confused. The description of indiwebmanager says its a simple web application to manage indi server. So how do i launch my browser to access this simple web application. I presume I launch it from the machine that hosts kstars/ekos. My configuration is a Linux desktop with all my equipment connected to it. Kstars/Ekos running on my Windows 10 laptop and communicating with indiserver on the Linux desktop. Currently I have been launching indiserver manually from the command line on the Linux desktop with all my equipment specified in the command line.

Well i followed the instructions in your link substituting pip3 for pip. Now when I install indiweb it finds setuptools and wheel and seems to terminate without errors. However I cannot find the program indiweb it presumably built. It is not in my desktop menu list of programs and if I type indiweb at the command line it can’t find an application by that name.
Where is it?

I use the following:

sudo apt-get install python3-pip
sudo -H pip3 install indiweb

I add
sudo apt install build-essential
For good measure.
So I use pip3 , not pip

I will try what you suggest.

I wanted to install indiweb on my linux Ubuntu desktop. I have followed the instructions to install i ndiweb as described in the indilib website. This involved installing pip3 python and also build essential. However when I actually run the indiweb install command it fails after a few lines saying setuptools missing. How do i get setuptools?
Thanks,
Lou

JMH,
Could you provide more information about your situation. Are you running the nightly build or the stable build. Are you running Stellarmate or a Linux desktop? Did you experience any QHY crashes after the late February Indi update? The Indi update and associated QHY crashes seems not to have affected Stellarmate users.
Thanks.

What is an older QHY camera model? My QHY5iiLM did not work as of 2 days ago and I am wondering if my QHY5 is considered an older model.

I tested my QHY5IIL-M yesterday with the nightly build and the stable build. Just a reminder I am using a Linux Mint desktop running the latest updates. In both cases the QHY driver crashed.

Just to elaborate I am using a Linux desktop not a Stellarmate. If the QHY 5 problem was fixed on Stellarmate it is not fixed on acLinux desktop.

Still doesn’t work for me either. I did another update to the latest Indi library using the commands
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indi-full gsc
The system no longer crashes but after I press connect on the QHY5 control panel I get a yellow light, not green. Also when I go to the Guiding tab the QHY5 is not available as a guider.
I also get a nagging message that the QHY5 Ii LM driver has crashed. I know I am using the latest Indi driver release because my Altair Hypercam 183 M now works. How frustrating, i waited months for my main imaging camera to work, but when it started working the guide camera quit.

I went to some pain to install Kstars/Ekos and the new Indi libtaty. I purged the okd installation and reinstalled the new. Is there a way to determine version of the QHY Indi driver one is using?
