I did contact ZWO and was told the ASCOM and ASIAIR control works fine, ( not exactly helpful to an Ekos user, right?)
I would encourage you to contact Zwo support, maybe they will help. The engineer did say they would look at the issue.
I am wondering if the log warning “ReferenceError: xi18n is not defined” is related to a lack of GPS data.
I don’t know what you mean by “Mount app” but if on a phone it would provide GPS data and possibly the reason it worked after using it.
I am throwing ideas at the wall right now but hopefully we will get somewhere.
The Astroberry.io docs mention setting up virtual-gps.
Hope this helps
Any updates on your issues, did you get it working?
I thought I would update the Gentoo installation instructions. If approved of, could someone replace the Get Indi/Gentoo page ?
Well I finally got this installed, and it seems the LESS I did is what made it work.
It all came down to trying to specify a src directory and an installation directory. When I did neither and used just "cmake .." it worked and installed with make install just fine.
Sometimes I have two guns to shoot my own foot!
Thanks for your reply!
That advice was in this thread:
.This is great, thank you for this great upgrade!
As far as blind plate solving, would you uncheck in Scale and Position the RA and DEC vs leaving that and entering 0? (As read in another thread)..
Also would it be proper to leave the corresponding . update check marks in place?
A side question, are nightly builds equivalent to bleeding builds?
Hey thanks for the help. I have not used cmake much.
I tried your instructions, cmake with -S <src directory>.
However, I cannot find where to insert the install directory this error is calling for:
"CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:39 (install):
install FILES given no DESTINATION!"
I had not seen `pwd` /.. as a means to change to root but figured that out and added GSC for /GSC which exists already.
I also tried with no change to the MakeFile but the above error still comes up.
Thanks for the help
I tried to get this going but I think the toolchain in Gentoo wont compile the source. It fails looking for the correct software to do so.
I will either just use my Astroberry Pi or spin up an Ubuntu docker image at some point.
It seems that the .deb installer just places files.
Following that I have the data files with the two regions.xxx files in a bin subdirectory.
Also, decode and gsc executables are in /usr/bin.
From here I can only surmise that I need GSCDAT and GSCBIN environment variables for this to work.
Am I correct or is there some other “configuration “ of Ekos needed?
Hi, I was going to ask a general question about simulations but have managed to get a profile in Ekos up and running.
However I don’t know how to get the GSC Catalog installed on a Gentoo system.
Would a flatpak work (never done it) or is there another way?
"Myself I followed a short PDF from Astrorunner who wrote the software..."
Do you have a link for that, or any other similar documentation?
I appreciate the link above though, which was quite helpful, thanks.
