Hi.

Earlier today I saw the new movie with video capture in Ekos and Notification setup in KStars.
I tried updating with apt update / upgrade, but did not get it, so I pulled the git repo and compiled, and still no notification settings.
The new Video capture is there in Ekos.

I have compiled and installed all mandetory and optional dependencies.
System is Kubuntu 16.04 LTS
Linux workstation 4.4.0-59-generic #80-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 6 17:47:47 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Notification settings is now present on my laptop vi kstars-bleeding. Still nothing on my up to date workstation.

I'll post back if there are any changes.

I tried the above command and got: 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
My laptop where it's working is same Kubuntu release and same kernel.

I could get the update on a fresh install of Ubuntu Mate. But not the lubuntu system I've based my main configuration on.

This is odd. It even works in Ubuntu Mate 16.04, I just tested it. At any rate, you can configure KStars notifications from KDE Control Panel as well. Run:
kcmshell5 notify

Well if it wasn't confusing enough already, I installed a fresh version of lubuntu and the first thing I did was install indi full and kstars. And now everthing is up to date.
It's almost as if the latest updates aren't getting applied, even after removing and reinstalling on my main setup. And dist-upgrade didn't help either.

Just started setting up some commands in the new notification configuration, and I found that the rules for 'Mount Unparked' are actually triggered by issuing a Park command. Pretty much the opposite of what it is intended to notify.

Edit: Slew Completed is also not getting triggered.
Also I think it would be more useful to report when a target has been acquired and begun tracking rather than every slew command being issued.

Ok fixed the parking notification stuff in GIT. For slew, we can only know once slew is completed. Your target can be anything, it will just report slew is complete and tracking.
