To clarify, the first beta opened fine. Beta2 and beta3 get stuck at DBus.

On my MacBookPro, everything is now working fine with kstars-3.5.7-beta3.dmg
- Simulators : no problem
- Real life : Celestron, Microtouch focuser, dome MaxDomeII, and 2 ZWO cameras : no problem
Well done Rob !

Jean-Claude Excellent, please keep testing and see if there is anything else.

David - I will check and see why dbus might be causing an issue for you

David, maybe try restarting the computer?  Just a thought.  It looks like dbus got packaged up ok.

Thanks Rob.  Version 3 doesn't kill INDI so good progress.  I will test more tonight.
PS:  I believe the issue with Nexdome ceasing to sync after reaching zero azimuth is still there though.  :(

Do we know when the code was pulled from indi-3rdparty to compile this version?

Hi Rob,

I had a bit of clear sky this evening so I tried 3.5.7 (original beta). I run Kstars on my Mac and Indi on a Rpi via Astroberry.
1. All devices connect OK (2 ZWO cameras, ASI EFW, ASI EAF, EQMod Mount, Pegasus PPBA).
2. Polar Alignment worked fine (noted the MF disabled during the PA).
3. Auto-focusing worked as usual.
4. Alignment / Plate solving worked as usual.
5. Scheduler. Loaded a previous sequence but on running, it went to the idle state and got stuck there. All the Job Constraints were on their default values and none should have prevented the sequence from starting. I rebuilt the sequence and tried twice more - same issue. Looking in the log I can see some msgs that might help... "Scheduler failed to register with dbus", "scheduler is stopping..."

David, the indi-3rdParty code should have been pulled today since my build script uses the most recent master of INDI and KStars as the default.

John, the Scheduler is heavily dependent on dbus, so if dbus is not working, then that would make the scheduler not work properly.  So dbus was not working properly for you?  In this build, I am trying to use the default craft build of dbus instead of using the custom recipe that I made a few years ago.  So if dbus does not work, we may have to bring back my old recipe.

Hi Peter,

Can you send/post a log file for the dome moving across 0 degrees when slaving and I'll have a look.
I do have the Autosync threshold set to 2 degrees in Ekos | Nexdome | Slaving (not 0.5).
Meridian side is Mount.
