How Update Kstars on Astroberry RPi4

I know that Astroberry is fully complete. That's why in my short 2 week acquaintance with it I love it.

I'm just fooling around with stuff waiting for KStars to be upgraded for the SV305.
That's why I tried to build KStars from scratch on plain RaspBian.

Actually, the reason why I included 2 services on the attachment is to show that despite the fact that it looks like the indiwebmanager service is running, the status is not showing in green which all the other services are.
I don't know what that means.

Getting to the RPi with AB running is not a problem. If I just use the IP address without the port number I get to the Astroberry Server page. Adding the port should take me to the Web Manager if it's running.

I'll have a look at the .service files.

As I said before, this is not critical. I'm sure KStars will release an update sooner or later.

In the mean time I'll use AstroDMx on Astroberry.

Cheers

Hello,

Fantastic. Click on Start. On the Lefthand of the session is tab. Click on on it. This is INDI Web.

To keep INDIWEBMANAGER running is to create a profile. That is it. The applets in this tab provide graphical presentations of your equipment. I created several to test equipment. My production mirrors EKOS.

When creating a profile, click on the box below to always use the profile, default and auto run. Everything is working.

When is KSTARS in the OS, KSTARS will complain about another running instance. This instance is INDIWEBMANAGER. You can close it but it’s service file has a restart option. It is designed to restart after a crash. Enjoy.

Thanks for posting these instructions. However, I just tried it and got this error:

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:212 (find_package):
By not providing "FindStellarSolver.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this
project has asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by
"StellarSolver", but CMake did not find one.

Could not find a package configuration file provided by "StellarSolver"
with any of the following names:

StellarSolverConfig.cmake
stellarsolver-config.cmake

Add the installation prefix of "StellarSolver" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set
"StellarSolver_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files. If
"StellarSolver" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it
has been installed.

kstars 3.5.0 includes an integrated plate solver, but requires this library to be installed in order to build.

github.com/rlancaste/stellarsolver

You would build from source and install it in much the same fashion as the kstars source build and install.

There is typically a one or two week delay from the point that a new release hits the main Ubuntu repo, before it reaches the Astroberry repo.

The repository has kstars 3.5 but in my case I had to perform distro update. After using
apt-get dist-upgrade, I got the newest kstars with no problems.

Tried to run update just now to see if 3.5.1 was available, but hit an error:

E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to acquire the dpkg frontend lock (/var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend), are you root?

(yes, I used sudo) I have successfully updated in the past.
Rebooted the pi, same result. Suggestions?

This error occurs when there is already one instance of the updater running. However, installation should work after reboot (you kill it),
But also could be a daemon which is started at boot,,, Please, check which applications are running with the task manager and if you see something related to program/dist updating, kill it.
