Timeout for Omegon veLOX 178c with indi_toupcam_ccd

Dear all,

I cannot take pictures/preview with the above mentioned camera in Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS following the instructions from indilib.org/ccds/toupcam-cameras.html. In the client software (kstars & ccdciel) I always get a timeout error. When running in a windows VM with the Omegon software it works.

Sadly I didn't find anything to solve my problem, so any help/hint is appreciated.

Kind regards
Jörg

Dear all,

with yesterdays update to v1.9.4 (indilib.org/forum/announcement/id-33.html) kstars crashes with a segfault when pressing the "Start" button in the EKOS dialog and ccdciel disconnects immediately after trying to connect.

Greetings 
Jörg

Ok, for those who are interested: I was able to run the camera in half the resolution ("INDI Control Panel "-> "Toupcam G3M178C" -> "Controls": setting "Resolution" to "1520+1024") with Debian on a Lenovo T490 Laptop. And finally on a Raspberry Pi 4 with Astroberry, the camera was running in full resolution. Sadly Idid not yet find out, why it is not running with the laptop.
