I cannot switch or edit filters on the SBIG CFW8A Wheel from Ekos.
From the INDI Control Panel, you can switch and edit filters, and the settings will be reflected in the "Camera & Filter Wheel" of Ekos.
It seems that only the filter settings are not loaded from "~/.Indi/SBIG CCD_config.xml" when Ekos is started.
I have purged KStars and even deleted the configuration files on home and reinstalled, but no improvement.
I tried following the instructions to get the Log, but it doesn't seem to work.
$ gdb --ex run --args kstars
Now when I start KStars and try to enable Debug as described, it immediately disables it.
I was able to enable it only after I reflected the filter settings in INDI to Ekos, so I am attaching the log I was able to get anyway.
According to the log, the version of KStars is "3.6.1 Stable" and the build date is "2022-10-05T04:40:28Z".
I had this problem with a QHY filter wheel and the manual filter. I found I had to go into optical train and remove the filter wheel and close, then go back to optical train and set the filter wheel and close and it was OK.

Thanks for your comments.
Based on your experience, it may be that Ekos is waiting for the filter wheel to be flagged to return to its origin.
I immediately opened the lid of the CFW8, shifted the wheel slightly by hand, put the lid back on and connected it to Ekos. When I powered on the wheel, the wheel did indeed spin and return to its origin, but the response on Ekos's part was the same as before.
I had similar issue with my ZWO EFW and my ASI533MM. I found that restarting the camera driver would then have the filter wheel show up in the camera settings for selection. To restart it just press the power button icon beside the camera description.
After doing this a few times, I haven't had any more problems, but I did also apply the update from the StellarMate app to my RPi.
