Does the mount move at all when doing the calibration? If not, I had a similar issue with my CEM120 and needed a firmware update to get it working.

Hey Thomas, I can't see anything that would be causing the issue you describe at first glance. Is your weather station on a publicly accessible site? That would make debugging easier for me. Did you build and install directly from source?

Also can you provide the output of:

cat ~/.indi/WeewxJSON_config.xml

It doesn't look like this driver is available on the PPA yet.

Rick Bassham replied to the topic 'CEM120 Guide Pulses not working' in the forum. 1 month ago

Hey Michael, unfortunately as the code stands now it is not compatible with older firmware. The commit I linked above changed the command that is sent to the mount for guide pulses, so if your mount isn't moving during calibration or guiding, you'll either need to wait for a driver update to make this compatible with older firmware or update your firmware on the mount.

It appears the reason for the change is that iOptron is deprecating the older commands to do pulse guiding, so the driver was updated to use the new ones. Unfortunately, if you are on an older firmware, your mount won't recognize the new commands.

Can you provide the firmware you are on now? We might be able to make it backwards compatible by checking the firmware version.

Ok, it looks like i was on an old firmware for the CEM120. Once updated to the latest firmware from iOptron, it seems to work fine.

I think the issue is from github.com/indilib/indi/commit/f3b9ca550...1a86052fd5d6f49e6a12. The mount does not move at all when guide pulses are issued. Anyone else having this problem?

If you are familiar with DBUS, you can control the focus module using that. The focus module DBUS commands are defined in kstars/org.kde.kstars.Ekos.Focus.xml.

It would be nice to have a button in the FITS Viewer to open the image in another program, like PixInsight.

Yes, that's correct. You weren't copying the xml file when doing a debug build/install. Glad it's working now!

Okay, double check that you are configuring cmake appropriately, specifically setting the MAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX correctly.

mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr ../

Also, it looks like you are only copying the xml file when doing a release build in your CMakeLists.txt:
install(FILES ${CMAKE_CURRENT_BINARY_DIR}/indi_rpicam2x.xml CONFIGURATIONS Release DESTINATION ${INDI_DATA_DIR})

Try changing that line to
install(
    FILES
    ${CMAKE_CURRENT_BINARY_DIR}/indi_rpicam2x.xml
    DESTINATION ${INDI_DATA_DIR}
)

what does this output?

cat /usr/share/indi/indi_rpicam2x.xml
