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 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 ?
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.
