Every now and then I have seen a dithering failure. I don't think it's a Mac issue though, it's a general one.

Yes, I think the same, it has already happened on my x86_64 version.

Ekos on Mac OS X ? #14015
Hi again,

I'm trying to use internal Astromety solver inside Ekos, but it's always failing. If I use external solver it works fine. I'm using internal Ekos Simulators.

From inside Ekos I get this log:

2017-01-22T19:33:09.264 - DEBG - Alignment: "Capturing image..."
2017-01-22T19:33:11.288 - DEBG - Alignment: "Image received."

2017-01-22T19:33:11.405 - DEBG - Alignment: "Solver failed. Try again."

If I run the same comand from the Teminal it returns this:

iMac-de-Jordi:Library jeam$

I suppose that my system is missing some component, but I don't know which.

Any help it's wellcome.

Yes it is. I believe it is missing pyfits Try this from the command line:

pip install pyfits

and if that doesn't work, either install pip, or the home-brew version of python which includes pip

Also note that you need netpbm which can also be installed via homebrew.

It seems it is installed:

iMac-de-Jordi:Library jeam$ pip install pyfits
Requirement already satisfied: pyfits in /Library/Python/2.7/site-packages
Requirement already satisfied: numpy in /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/Extras/lib/python (from pyfits)

How can I install netpbm via homebrew? Sorry I don't know what homebrew is?

Thanks!!!

I have been working really hard for the last couple of days and I think I am ready to put up a new DMG for you guys to try. It now includes a quick start guide, copyright information, a startup wizard, and the latest versions of all the software.

KSTARS NEW DMGKSTARS NEW DMG

I got rid of the annoying dialog boxes at startup and integrated that into a couple of pages of the already existing startup wizard. I also put some of the steps of configuration that I previously explained in the forum into the program and the Quickstart guide. Currently all of the features of the startup wizard are working except for the installers and checkboxes for netpbm, pyfits, and pip. I will need to revisit that part. It is pretty easy to do it from Terminal however.

Commands you need to type into terminal to do it manually:

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)" < /dev/null 2> /dev/null
brew install python
brew install netpbm

When I execute those commands I get this result:

iMac-de-Jordi:Library jeam$ ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)" < /dev/null 2> /dev/null
==> This script will install:

iMac-de-Jordi:Library jeam$ brew install python
-bash: brew: command not found
iMac-de-Jordi:Library jeam$
iMac-de-Jordi:Library jeam$ brew install netpbm
-bash: brew: command not found
iMac-de-Jordi:Library jeam$

It seems that brew is not found.

This is why I would like to get the installers working on the distribution version. They simplify these steps so much. But alas, my attempt to fix it today didn't work, so I need to figure it out. For now, installing home-brew and executing the two home-brew commands is actually necessary.

Hi,

today I am having a real hard time trying to get autofocus to work.
It just doesn't work, always crashes KStars.
