Hi guys
Having another try with Kstars/Ekos and just installed Kubuntu 17.04 (zesty zapus?)on an oldish 64bit laptop. Installed Kstars bleeding (2.7.8 ) with all drivers and keep getting a crash when trying to connect to my Atik 314L ccd.

Tried latest 32bit and 64 bit Atik drivers from CloudMakers and not sure what to try next. Wondering if these drivers have been tested with 17.04, I have libnova-0.16-0 and is already the newest version (0.16-2)?. Do I need to install libnova-0.14?.
thanks
Steve :)

I solved mine (Atik 420m) installing libnova-014 (launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libnova/0.14.0-2.1).
Maybe you can solve it too with a Symlink to the libnova-016 file.

Thanks for that nmac, never done a sym link before so I assume its like
ln -s source_file myfile
where source would be libnova-0.14.0-2.1 and myfile would be libnova-0.16-2
thus ln -s libnova-0.14.0-2.1 libnova-0.16-2 ?
thanks
Steve

Hi, yes that should work, the correct syntax should be something like this (for x86-64):

ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libnova-0.16.so.0 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libnova-0.14.so.0

The source is the one you already have in your system (libnova-0.16.so.0) and the MyFile is the one you want to create (libnova-0.14.so.0).

That normally works if the two libraries are not too different from each other, sometimes the are functions that are deprecated on newer libraries.
That's why I prefer to install another library (really just one file) rather than symlinking.

Hi again nmac
I seem to be having problems installing that libnov-0.14 I keep getting an `install-recursive`?error message after typing `make install`-

make[2]: Leaving directory '/home/steve/Downloads/libnova-0.14.0/src/libnova'
Makefile:446: recipe for target 'install-recursive' failed
make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/steve/Downloads/libnova-0.14.0/src'
Makefile:299: recipe for target 'install-recursive' failed
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

cheers

You are trying to build the library. Just install it from the repository.
First try this:

sudo apt-get install libnova-0.14-0

If that fails then just download the binary and install that one from here:

launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libnova/0.14.0-2.1
There you have a section called builds, choose the correct binary for your computer. Mine is amd64.
Are you using a 64bit ou 32bit system? If 32bit you have to choose i386:

sudo dpkg -i libnova-0.14-0_0.14.0-2.1_i386.deb
