SUCCESS people!!!

Taking Ferrante and Bundy's scripts as an example I managed to make it work !!! I am more than happy!!!
Thanks a lot, without your help I would not have made it.
Now I can automate my observatory much better.

Question: Is there another dirver similar to this one to run scripts but is it for a Roll Off Roof?

I also want to do something similar for my DIY dust cap and be able to include all these devices in my STARTUP and SHUTDOWN procedures. Is there any that I can use?

Thanks again

Ferrante,
If I run the script with the console de outpu is "ok" (without quotation marks).
If I run with the driver (park,py) an error message appears (as with the original script) [ERROR] Failed to park.

Would I need a STATUS or CONNECT script that is not a dummy?

I think the only devices that I have yo access is the Bluetooth module, in the script I created a BT socket and use RFCOMM. In the /dev folder the only similar is rfcomm0 file and I seted permissions for anybody, but still not working :/

Is my first time doing this kind of python scripts. If I run the script in the console works fine.

Hi Ferrante, thanks for the answer.
I set the permission to execute the scripts to "Anybody", the scripts are in /usr/share/indi/scripts folder. I that folder I've created 11 scripts (onr for each command for the driver), 9 of them are empty to be dummies (I don't know if doing it like this is correct) and only the unpark.py and park.py scripts have sourde code. Is the first time I'm doing this and I have no idea if the driver could run any type of python scripts or there is a typical source or some "rules" I have to follow.
The code is pretty simple, just it open a socket via bluetooth and send a command to the Arduino board.
Could not get the driver log, I tried to enable the logs from the Ekos profile but the logs folder is always empty no matter how I configure it.
Anyway, I attach the driver message on the INDI control panel if this help.

Thanks!

Hi universalmaster,
I'm trying to use Dome Dcripting Gateway driver to control my roll off roof.
I wrote a python script that use the on board Rpi Bluetoooth to send an open/close command to an ArduinoNano board connected to my motor controller. If I execute this script, is a Python 3 script by the way (to import and use Bluetooth library) in the console works fine, but when I tried to use the same script in "unpark.py" to execute via Dome Scripting Gateway it didn't work.
What I'm doing wrong? Any idea?
Thanks

Andres Rossi created a new topic ' Enabling two headless monitors' in the forum. 1 year ago

Hello felloes. I generally access my SM through VNC and was wondering if it would be possible to use two monitors via VNC to SM.
From what I saw the SM is configured to run headless since in the config.txt file the hdmi_force_hotplug parameter is set to 1 and this forces a detection of an HDMI monitor even if nothing is connected to the HDMI port.
My question is, can you force the SM to detect as if there were 2 monitors each connected to an HDMI port and in this way access each of them via VNC? (One using port 5900 and the other using port 5901 on the VNC client).
Any idea?
Thanks

Hi folks, I recently updated my SM OS to 1.5.3 version through the Package Updater (I'm using RPi4 BTW) . But now I can't set the resolution to 1920x1080. I'm trying using the web Control Panel to change it, then I restarted, but the resolution still is 1600x900.
Any ideas?Thanks
