Markku Siitonen replied to the topic 'Still trying to debug XAGYL connection' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

Hi,

I don't know how to do that on a Mac but in linux you can do a dmesg in the console and note the last line, and then connect the Xagyl wheel and do a dmesg again and you should see a line saying "/dev/ttyUSB0" or maybe "/dev/ttyACM0" or similar, then you know..
You can also do a lsusb to find out what devices is connected to USBports..
Other way is to do a tail -f /var/log/syslog and then you can see the device get connected in realtime :)

@ChrisRowland
I can test that and see what happens..

@Bill001
I did grab the file while still guiding so I really don't know if the file is there after a session.

It could be the cables but I can't confirm that, I have checked everything a couple of times but no clue why that happens..

Hi,

Interesting, it looks just like mine except my does that in DE maybe once or twice per session even if the star is perfectly in the box all the time, I always thought I had a lot of backlash but could never find out why that happens.

I don't have a image of it but I do have a GuideData.csv file.

Markku Siitonen replied to the topic 'EQ6 with MCU-Upgrade problems with Indi_lx200basic driver' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

Hi Kisa,

You asked for thoughts, so here is what I think :)
Even if I would have that mount I would not hack the firmware to get rid of the "ß"..
First of all, all other mounts would be incompatible with the driver.
Second, If there is a entry point in the firmware that points to a address beyond that point where the character is then the point would be shifted by 1 byte and you would probably end up with a bricked mount.
Also if the software that does the upgrade checks for a checksum of some kind it would not flash the mount.

So imho it's best to modify the driver so it can be used by everyone with the same mount and firmware.

Hi,

I tested the sx driver yesterday and it worked with my LodestarX2 and SXVR-H9 so there must be something else wrong..??

That's great :)

Well, Ctrl+Shift+f should work as it work for me if the KStars window is in focus, if you press Alt+Tab you should get a window selector so you can get any open window to focus, maybe you can check the control panel settings under the Devices and Keyboard shortcuts if you can find anything there, I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 so the menus is probably different in other distros.

Hi,
Edit the file : .config/kstarsrc
In section [Ekos] there is lines EkosWindowHeight=700 and EkosWindowWidth=900
Set the values to 700 and 900 and then run KStars and see what happens, the main window should be 700x900.

Well, it can be done, I just did :) but you have to use DB Browser to modify the database so I'm not sure that's recommended at all, I think it's better if Jasem would "force" the profile creation at first run with Ekos ??
