Changing the camera pixel size in Indi #54529
Hi

I'm using the FireflyMV Indi Driver (as it's the only one I can get to connect), but it's set with a different pixel size, width and height to the camera I have.



Is it possible to change the pixel size and max width and height settings somewhere? I don't seem to be able to type in the boxes and there is no set option on this page.

The current driver appears to be limited to Point Grey Firefly MV, what's your model exactly?

Thanks

It's an Atik GP, which I believe is a rebranded Grey Point Chameleon, which I'm assuming is why the Grey Point Firefly driver works, just with the wrong image and pixel size.

I can get the guide camera to work under Indigo, but can't seem ot integrate everything with EKOS (kstars) that way.

It's so close to all working. I just need to get the guide camera working a bit better than it is currently.

I've heard it works on Stellarmate using the Atik CCD driver, so maybe thats an option, it's just something else new to learn and I'm sooo close

What's the VID:PID from lsusb for this camera? What's the width, height, and pixel size?

Ok so I added Atik GP support by checking the model_id parameter of the camera.. not sure if this would work. Please git pull from repository and test it out.

That sounds amazing thanks, I think I've found some instruction on how to pull it down. Exactly what do I need to pull though? I think I've pulled the whole of the core library repository, hopefully that's correct.

Do I need to do anything in kstars to connect to the new pull, or should it all happen automatically?

I'm guessing I need to follow these build steps.

Build indi-core

mkdir -p ~/Projects/build/indi-core
cd ~/Projects/build/indi-core
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug ~/Projects/indi
make -j4
sudo make install

I get a error on the cmake command
-bash: cmake: command not found

No doubt I'm doing something wrong.

Well it could just be a complete co-incidence but today all the problems I have had have gone away my guide camera is no longer massively noisy and it can select stars no problem. If it's not a co-incidence thanks so much for your help.

Did you select Atik GP driver now in the equipment profile?

No I didn't, so as expected I've not managed to compile the build correctly.

I seem to be having an issue with the CDMake step. I think I must be getting the file path wrong. Does the /usr in PREFIX=/usr need to be pointed at the right path.
The CDMake install has a visual interface, but I'm not sure where to point that either.

Well I got the visual interface of CDMake to do something, but got an error

CMake Error at cmake_modules/FindNova.cmake:49 (message):
libnova not found. Please install libnova development package.
Call Stack (most recent call first):
CMakeLists.txt:293 (find_package)

Looks like I'm still missing something, will have to see if I can figure that out now.

It will have to wait, as I have clear skies again tonight.
