Just re-upgraded to Ubuntu Mate 22.04
All installed ok, indi-full & Kstars, connected all my equipment except mount (it's too far away) connected.

Thanks Jaseem, great stuff...

Any news on when indi-full will be ready to install?
Indi-bin doesn’t seem to have all the drivers?

I figured all would be ready for 22.04 if I left it a month?

Or should I just go back to 21.10?

It definitely does not install properly on Ubuntu mate 22.04
It keeps saying it’s missing libindidriver1

Hi all, is anyone using the QHY268M camera?
My PC can’t seem to find mine.
I wasn’t sure the camera was working as it’s new, so I installed the drivers and NINA on another PC just to test the camera works ok, which it does?
is there anything I need to do or install for my AstroPC to detect it.


thanks, Darren.

Darren replied to the topic 'SestoSenso focuser Driver issue' in the forum. 11 months ago

I've put a request in on the INDI github page for the driver alteration for FocusABSPosN from 200,000 to 2,000,000, will see what happens?
the max position is FocusMaxPosN[0].value = 2097152; so not sure why someone set the max focus position to 200000 anyway?


FocusRelPosN[0].min = 0.;
FocusRelPosN[0].max = 50000.;
FocusRelPosN[0].value = 0;
FocusRelPosN[0].step = 1000;

FocusAbsPosN[0].min = 0.;
FocusAbsPosN[0].max = 200000.;
FocusAbsPosN[0].value = 0;
FocusAbsPosN[0].step = 1000;

FocusMaxPosN[0].value = 2097152;

Darren created a new topic ' SestoSenso focuser Driver issue' in the forum. 11 months ago

Hi all, is there any way of getting a driver altered or altering/making my own driver?
I use a RASA with a sesto senso Focuser, KStars will let me enter a max focuser steps/position of 200,000.
My focus position in my RASA is around 900,000 to 1,100,000, therefore I'm royally screwed.
The 200,000 limit needs another Zero to 2 million.
I asked this question last year, but got no real solution, is there anyway around this issue, or should I just use NINA/SGP?, 
I'd rather not use either but Kstars is now useless to me, unless I replace both my £300 Sesto Senso Focusers with some cheaper ones that don't use the 10:1 Microfocuser 

this was never an issue the year before last, I've been using kstars for 4 or more years, the issue was introduced in a driver INDI update sometime last year.

Thanks in advance, Darren.
