Can’t download astrometry files #56539
Hi there!
Can’t download the files. It’s blocked and can’t tick the files. I guess I’ve to give permission or create a new file, but no idea how to do it.
Thanks

If you go into the Alignment (bullseye) tab of EKOS (have to connect mount, camera and astrometry), you click on the options button (bottom right) and you will see an Index Files tab on the left that will allow you to select and download the astrometry files. From there you will be able to select the Index Files Location that may give you 2 choices: 1) "/usr/share/astrometry" for which you likely do not have write permission, and 2: "/home/yourhomedirectory/.local/share/kstars/astrometry" for which you shall have write permission. Select the "/home/yourhomedirectory/.local/share/kstars/astrometry" from the list. You should be able to tick the file selection and download should start soon after.

If you prefer to have all the files in /usr/share/astrometry, you can always sudo move them afterward but you may have to change ownership and permissions.

The following page may provide you with useful information: indilib.org/about/ekos/alignment-module.html

Silly question here but, I assume you installed "astrometry.net" from your home directory as, IIRC, it creates the appropriate directories and configure things correctly.

Good luck.

In folder details says “ downloads disabled, directory does not exist”
