Hi!

I've just installed and prepared a Raspberry Pi for remote operation, and it's seems to work very nicely - except for my Canon DSLR. It's connected and found by R-Pi, according to dmesg:

[ 560.533024] usb 1-1.4.4: new high-speed USB device number 10 using dwc_otg
[ 560.635465] usb 1-1.4.4: New USB device found, idVendor=04a9, idProduct=3253

[ 1247.578267] usb 1-1.4.4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
[ 1247.578279] usb 1-1.4.4: Product: Canon Digital Camera
[ 1247.578291] usb 1-1.4.4: Manufacturer: Canon Inc.

However, Indi cannot open camera. I've had the same problem using an Ubuntu laptop, but then all I had to do was to "unmount" the camera in the file manager. How do I do this in R-Pi? Or what can I do? Grateful for any advice... :)

I've just tried the same, with a 450D it seems to work on Raspbian and indilib 1.2, no unmounting needed.
The FITS viewer doesn't work though in Kstars running on another Pi. Kstars crashes after download of the image. Possibly asking too much after all...
CCDCiel on a Windows laptop picks up and shows the image file nicely.

Try the steps in this link:

That should show you how to stop the pi from auto mounting your dslr.

Hi!

Yes!! Now it seems to work. I had to reboot for any effect, though. But after reboot it connects. Thanks!!
