I think you are facing a different problem. Maybe a libindi mismatch version.
Could you please paste the output of ldd $(which kstars)|grep indi

Miguel replied to the topic 'Kstars crashes with indi2' in the forum. yesterday

so you don't experience the problem with the ppa version? There is no 3.6.3 version on the ppa repo, afaik. Which version do you have currently installed? Is it finding the right libindi library version?

Miguel created a new topic ' Kstars crashes with indi2' in the forum. yesterday

Hi,

I cannot start kstars since I upgraded to indi2

kstars: error while loading shared libraries: libindiclient.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
ls -la /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libindiclient*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Jan 31 09:46 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libindiclient.so.2 -> libindiclient.so.2.0.0
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 604432 Jan 31 09:46 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libindiclient.so.2.0.0

There is no any kstars upgrade for my current distro (ubuntu 20.04 based). I cannot downgrade indi neither. Any fix?

Miguel replied to the topic 'How to set RA/DEC limits' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

Hi John,

Thanks for the reply.
I was insisting on finding those settings in the eqmod driver. Thanks for clarifying.

Regarding the watchdog, is something I saw a long time ago but didn't pay attention. Thanks for reminding me. I've been reading again and I have a doubt. As far as I understand, ekos acts as a client against the watchdog driver. How often does ekos send such heatbeats? The watchdog config heartbeat settings, as far as I understand, is the timeout the driver waits to receive the heartbeat. Does ekos also take this value to send them?

Miguel created a new topic ' How to set RA/DEC limits' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

Hi,

Is it possible to set limits to RA/DEC position in a similar way ascom eqmod allows? This feature is to prevent hitting the pier/tripod in case a meridian flip fails.

thanks Steve. Although I'm not able to fully link a particular commit with a particular kstars version, according to the commit date and kstars build I can almost suspect the one I'm looking for.
Thanks for sharing

Hi,
If I have fits viewer with two opened files (which, by the way, always happens automatically when imaging and guiding, one fit from the main camera and another from the guide one); when I press the "clip" red button to inspect the main image, the value of clipped pixels disappear just when the other fit file (from the guide cam) refreshes:

Miguel created a new topic ' Kstars ppa changelog' in the forum. 4 months ago

Hi. This is a rather simple question. How can I figure out the changelog of a new kstars update? Ubuntu's system update program always reports "autobuild" on changelog. I also tried to match the .deb version against an specific commit in github, but it's quite confusing.

I confirm everything works fine. Thanks Jasem

Hi,
I've noted that sometimes plate solve does not work as expected. Well, I would say that is an alignment issue rather that plate solving.
Plate solve works pretty well always. But sometimes the corrections applied are very very small. Let's say I have an error of 1400 arcsec. After a "capture and solve -> slew to target" action, it applies such a small correction that the next iteration the solver returns 1392 arcsec of error, for example. And over and over, in very small steps.
I don't note this behavior always, but sometimes. Although (I'm not sure), it seems to behave likes this after a meridian flip. Then, I have to manually clean the model and capture and solve again. Then, it works.
