I saw there was an update to the Atik driver this evening so I loaded it up and connected it to my equipment. I'm happy to report that my Atik GP worked flawlessly! I'm hopefully going to get some clear skies tomorrow night and finally be able to get some quality time in with Ekos. If all goes well, I plan on adding a StellarMate to my observatory so I'll be able to easily control my imaging from anywhere. Thanks for all the work you guys do on developing this system. It's much appreciated. Thanks!

Could someone please explain the proper steps to take to load an Indigo driver (indigo_ccd_iidc) along with the INDI drivers in Ekos. My Atik GP crashes the INDI server and I was hoping that the Indigo driver would fix that. I want to use INDI drivers for my Paramount MYT, Atik One 9 CCD camera, Nitecrawler focuser, and flip flat. Everything is connected directly to my laptop which is scope side so no remote servers are being used. I've downloaded and installed Indigo and when I start the server in a termianl window the Atik GP shows up as a Chameleon camera in the Indigo web interface but it doesn't show up in the device manager window in KStars. I know I'm doing something wrong but can't figure out what. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm just getting started with INDI, Linux, and KStars so please bear with me if I ask really dumb questions. I have all of my equipment up and running with the exception of my Atik GP guide camera which is crashing the Indi server. After exposing an image I get this error message from Kstars: "KStars detected INDI driver indi_atik_ccd crashed. Please check INDI server log in the Device Manager." From the log I see this error: "2019-02-06T23:53:57: Driver indi_atik_ccd: libusb: error [submit_bulk_transfer] submiturb failed error -1 errno=2 Child process 5072 died". Does anyone have any idea what this means? I've read that the INDI Atik driver doesn't support long exposures and that I might need to use the Indigo driver instead. I'm currently running version 2.1 of the indi_atik_ccd driver and also the latest nightly build of KStars. If I do need to run the Indigo driver could someone please walk me through the process of installing the Indigo server along side of the INDI server? As a side note, I have an Atik One 9 imaging camera hooked up as well and it seems to work without issue.
