Problems with Install on Kubuntu 21.004

I tried to install Kstars and the just Indi following the respective instructions but neither would install because of errors in resolving dependancies that after some googling I was powerless to fix. I must say that I have little familiarity with Linux. So I just installed it using "snap install kstars". I could manage this single step install. So kstars runs and when I launch Ekos Indi immediately crashes. And crashes on auto relaunch. My hardware is a Theadripper 3970 with 128GB, Gigabyte Aorus WiFi Pro, and MSI GEFORCE 3070. Any ideas?

Thanks

I have never used snap to install kstars, and wasn't aware there even was such a thing.

I think you want

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indi-full kstars-bleeding

Here's a link to the official instruction page:

Hi Kurt,
I also tried to install ubuntu 21.04 and did succeed as the were packages held back fir Indi. Moving back to 20.04.2 LTS fixed the problem.

I rebuilt the system and everything seems to work now. This might be a little off topic but I was running on a Mac but went to kubuntu to to run Pixinsight Ez Stack on a platform fast enough to stack 61 mega-pixel images. On the fits viewer I cannot find the FWHM feature that I use all the time on the Mac. Is this feature just not there in EKOS on Linux?

That's interesting. Kstars runs fine on the LTS version. This was my first linux build other than RPI Astroberry and FreeNAS which were pretty much canned products. I did notice that the Mac version of Kstars has slight differences from the Kubuntu version as I mentioned above. I am not sure if EKOS is from indilib.org.
