QHY 183M Not Detected by Ekos on Raspberry Pi 4

Hi all,

I've run into an issue where Ekos will not detect a QHY 183M camera. When Ekos is started I receive the message "No QHY cameras detected. Power On?"

I am running a Raspberry Pi 4 with Ubuntu MATE as it's OS (with the latest QHY INDI drivers). I have been able to connect to the same camera using a laptop running Ubuntu 18.04.

I did try connecting to the camera directly though INDI using "indiserver indi_qhy_ccd" but, again, it was not detected.

The camera is listed under the list of devices outputted by "lsusb"

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I am having the same problem with my Atik devices. Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot? I swapped cards in the Pi 4 and everything was ok. Could the card be corrupted?

After a fresh installation of Ubuntu MATE (20.04) the problem seemed to persist.
After installing Raspberry Pi OS, Ekos had no issue finding the camera. And everything seems to work as it should.
Considering Ubuntu MATE for the Pi 4 is still in beta I'm not sure who's end this issue is coming from.
At any rate, its worth noting that other devices (Celestron SCT focuser and Celestron CGX mount) had no issue connecting under Ubuntu MATE.

After removing rpi.gpio-common and rebooting, my Atik devices are again detected.

I got it to work.  Did not have anything to do with removing rpi.gpio-common.

Need to install QHY libraries and libusb and then it works.
