Hi all,
Been using Ekos from a windows PC, now have a Linux PC with The latest Ubuntu installed, I have put Kstars, Ekos on and connected up and loaded simulator profiles, but when I take an image with the CCD simulator there is no image comes up, just a picture of noise, I wanted to check out the Asteometry was working but can’t....any ideas why there are no simulated images as I had them before with the windows version connected to my rpi3...?.

GSC, the Hubble Guide Star catalog, needs to be installed.

sudo apt-get install gsc

Thanks from me too.  Had same problem trying to use CCD Simulator in Ekos.  I'm running Kubuntu on an old Lenovo U460 laptop and still learning what I don't know about both Linux and Ekos.  Installaton of GSC catalog worked as described and now I have stars in simulated exposure.
Thanks!
