Hi there,

Sorry to interfere but I noticed you have "Auto Search" enabled, if you can't disable that it just might not let you choose anything else than a serial port.
Maybe you can edit the settingsfile "LX_200 10Micron.xml" in the directory ".indi/" (eg. cd .indi)
You should see a few lines like this...

<newSwitchVector device='EQMod Mount' name='DEVICE_AUTO_SEARCH'>
<oneSwitch name='INDI_ENABLED'>
Off
</oneSwitch>
<oneSwitch name='INDI_DISABLED'>
On
</oneSwitch>

Change the lines "On" and "Off" to match like my example, save the file and then copy "LX_200 10Micron.xml" to "LX_200 10Micron.xml.default" in the same directory, and then run KStars again and now you will (hopefully) select "Ethernet" and save the settings.

Note : I don't have a 10Micron mount and therefore don't know the precise filename but it should be easy to spot anyway.

There is a couple of things to do to find out what ports are created, you can do from terminal with command : tail -f /var/log/syslog end then connect a device and you can see that in realtaime, otherwise in terminal run : dmesg and check the last message, connect the device and run the same command again and you can see a few new lines that tells what have happened.

Hi guys,

I just connected my genuine Arduino Uno just to see what port it creates,

[ 584.205058] usb 2-2: new full-speed USB device number 2 using xhci_hcd
[ 584.355522] usb 2-2: New USB device found, idVendor=2341, idProduct=0043, bcdDevice= 0.01
[ 584.355526] usb 2-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=220
[ 584.355529] usb 2-2: Manufacturer: Arduino ( www.arduino.cc )
[ 584.355531] usb 2-2: SerialNumber: 8523535313735130F1F0
[ 584.383481] cdc_acm 2-2:1.0: ttyACM0: USB ACM device
[ 584.384503] usbcore: registered new interface driver cdc_acm
[ 584.384504] cdc_acm: USB Abstract Control Model driver for USB modems and ISDN adapters

I'm using Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS and I do get a ttyACM0, hope this helps.

Hi geehael and xthestreams,

While at the topic about guiding there was a really good way to get superb guiding at least for my EQ8 Pro mount and a SX cam, I'm not sure why the option "Rapid Guide" is grayed out since long time now but it was a great way to get rid of the latency compared to the usual way getting the image or part of the image transferred to the client and displaying it.

The only drawback with Rapid Guide was the SX driver made the choice of what star to guide on, but if you had a white pixel it sometimes tried to guide on that, but after a number of retries it got a real star and it worked great.

I've never used any other cams but the SX and not sure if the SX driver is the only one that could use that option ??
Anyway, I miss that and would love to get it back even if the PPEC works really well.

Sorry about my spelling but watching '90 day fiancé' messes me up :)

Hi,

When creating a profile you can find "Pyxis" in the "Aux" menu.

In the picture it looks like the module 8822bu.ko was build ?? if you find the file you can try : sudo insmod path/to/module/8822bu.ko
or if the file is in the current directory then use : sudo insmod ./8820bu.ko just to see what happens.

Hi,

I've been playing with wx and python some time ago and used this to get transparency, maybe useful for you ?

#!/usr/bin/python

import wx

transp = 128
radie = 80
cross = True

class SketchFrame(wx.Frame):
    def __init__(self, parent):

        wx.Frame.__init__(self, None, -1, "Bulls eye", size=(400, 400))

        #panel = wx.Panel(self, wx.ID_ANY)
        #btn = wx.Button(panel, label="OK")

        self.SetTransparent(transp)

        self.Buffer = None
        #self.SetFocus()

I tried the one Ihoujin wrote in indilib.org/forum/general/6562-driver-fo...r.html?start=0#50498
I didn't search for any other drivers to try but if you have any suggestions let me know.

Now I did a lot of testing but can't find a way to compile on a Pi, compiling and installing the module works fine in x86 and amd64 but no go on a Rpi..
Have to get some help from google.. but for today I give up :(

Great, so can you try install the kernel headers with the command : sudo apt install raspberrypi-kernel-headers
This is something I found in the RPi forum so I'm not sure about that, I'll also try when I get home and have access to my Pi.
