Hello Tom
I do have the file in the location that you referenced on the RPi. I can see the driver from the drop down Dome options in the profile creator on the RPi.
I do not know if such a folder/directory structure is created when KStars is installed on the macOS. I looked for something similar but could not find it. Someone else may know where that may be if it is on a macOS.
Thanks to you I learnt something new and used the "Remote" method and it works.
I set the Remote driver name as "@hostIPaddress:7624".
As indicated in the previous post. I can see the RollOff ino driver when I run Web Manager on my macOS. I select the drivers I want there and run that. 
I do not select any driver in the Ekos profile, except have the Remote one with that name and all of the devices show up and is connected on Indi Control Panel and Ekos.
Thanks to you and all the others that contribute..

Hello Tom
I am sure it is most likely me that is misunderstanding how the Stellarmate(RPi) is meant to work as a server or still have not done something correctly loaded.
The way I run my system is:
1. I connect all my equipment to the StellarMate(RPi).
2. I run KStart/Ekos on my Mac
3. I set up a profile in "Remote" to the appropriate StellarMate(RPi) IP address.
4. Select all the devices/drivers that I have connected to the StellarMate(RPi). 
5. I start the profile that connects to the RPi via ethernet, either direct cable or wifi on my LAN network.
I do not see the RollOff ino as an option to be selected from any of the drop downs on the Mac.
In thinking about your response I tried something different to set up a profile, using the wizard.
I set profile this way and was able to see the driver and run the profile and I was able to see the RollOff ino in the Indi Control Panel.
However I did a stupid thing and accidentily deleted that profile and now I cannot repeat what I did.
Do you know a different way I should be doing this so I can see all the drivers on the StellarMate(RPi)
Thanks
Krish

I tried this with your latest version.
It works just great.
Thank you very much for the work you put into it.
Now for me to pursue trying to load it onto my macOS. That is where I prefer running KStars with the RPI just being the server. macOS seems to be ok with building the folders and the libraries but does not want to accept the cmake commands.
Thanks again for your help.

Thank you
I will try it in a few days and let you know.

After playing around with 3.5.4 to try and get solver to work and now 3.5.5 solver is now behaving erratically. It will solve on very few occasions and most times it will just continue to slew and solve until I stop it.
Could someone please take a look at the log file to try and help me identify what I may  have set incorrectly.
I have deleted all that I could find of any previous files associated with KStars before loading 3.5.5.
I am doing this with simulation.
I have attached the log file and screenshots that show target in centre and one of the Align module. I also have a screen recording if someone would like to look at what I mean by continue to slew then solve.
Please let me know if there is anything I can provide that may help identify the problem.Thanks

I am going to start afresh for the driver.
Will i be right in starting from section 1 of "indilib.org/forum/general/210-howto-buil...st-libindi-ekos.html" to build the indi_rolloffino driver seeing that I am using Stellarmate and KStars 3.5.5 on it or should I be starting from section 3? 
Thanks

A quick read of the HOWTO and I can say it will be very helpful.
I will work with it and come back with any ideas that may make it easier.
I have attached the log indi log files that show the crashes.
I am using Stellarmate 1.6 and KStars 3.5.5 Stable.build 2021-09-30T19:39:54Z.
I followed this for this link, from the iNSTALL, for the driver building process: indilib.org/forum/general/210-howto-buil...st-libindi-ekos.html
Then followed the INSTALL for the building the indi-rolloffino driver and associated files.
My Ekos Obs and Iindi Control panels are the same as your images.
Thanks

Hello Tom
I do have a connection. I see it in Indi Control panel.
I am using the Arduino with a relay board and sensors connected testing on the bench. 
One relay for open another for close and 2 sensors for open and close.
I am using the rolloffino.standard file for the Arduino. That seems the closes match for what I have for testing.
I did manage to see some action on the Arduino today. I set the sensors as expected and Indi sees it as well.
If I hit the open or closed buttons in Indi I see the corresponding relay come on but then the Indi driver Rolloffino crashes and a few seconds later Kstars crashes.
I have attached a zipped folder with log files.

@ Jasem
You indicated that I should be able to use the same process from the HOWTO: Building latest libindi and Ekos on a macOS.
I tried that and get a message: "sudo: apt-get: command not found".
Do you perhaps know what I may be  doing wrong.

I have tried

Hello Tom & Jasem
I have managed to get there. I can now see RollOffino in Ekos on Stellarmate on my RPi.
@ Tom
I found that a "build" directory was created in the "Projects" when building the Indi portion of the process. I had to use that "build" directory for the cmake of the Indi-rolloffino.
The command had to be: $ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug ~/Projects/indi-3rdparty/indi-rolloffino
Now to get the Arduino and Ekos to play. I think I have a connection but not quite the relay control and sensor inputs yet.
Thanks again for all the help you guys have provided.

Thanks Tom
I do not see an "indi" directory in the project directory
I may have missed something in the initial indi steps.
Thanks again for your help.

Hello Tom
I have started fresh.
I think I have done a bit better this time.
However I am getting a different error, that seems to be pointing to the CMakeLists.txt file.
I have attached the terminal details and the CMakeOutput.log files.
Thanks

Thanks Tom
I am not home for a few days.
I will try again when I get back home.
I plan on starting with a new Stellarmate on the RPi.

Thanks for the offer of help if I get stuck.
I did indeed get stuck when doing the last part - making the rolloffino driver.
I will give it another try and post the errors. Not able to do it this morning.
Thanks

Thanks Tom
I try and load the driver onto the RPi. 
That HowTo/Guide will be really appreciated, for us that don't work with code all the time.
Thanks again for the help.

Hello Tom or Jasem
I have stellarmate on a RPi4.
I have Arduino connected to RPi4
I run KStars/Ekos on my Mac.
I am also testing this on a bench.
I may be trying things without going through the right sequence of events to get it to work.
I have attached a zip file of what Tom has on the GIT page.
Could you perhaps please give me the steps I should follow to get the Mac side of things set up. 
Then which of the Arduino Sketches I should use for it to be compatible with the Mac side set up. 
Thanks
