I am a complete newbie trying to connect a NexImage 5 to my laptop running Linux Mint 20.2.
I have used INDIstarter to get the server running and I can control my NexStar 102SLT. But using CCDciel I can see that it shows "Camera frame x=0 y=0 width=640 height=480". Which must be for the laptop's webcam.
Can I have some advice on what I need to check my NexImage is connected please?
As far as it detecting the laptop webcam, it will probably be /dev/video1 (as opposed to /dev/video0) You can usually double check that with "dmesg | grep video" (or "sudo dmesg | grep video" when you plug it in.)
Another good program for testing if it's working is guvcview.
Note that you might be able to use the gige driver as is without the firmware update. (I've since become aware of that using avaris, but on another USB camera it hasn't worked, and I haven't yet tried it on the NexImage 5.)
