Major INDI Library release v1.9.0 bring significant internal changes championed by @pawel-soja to modernize core INDI Library drivers and clients. New drivers for DeepSkyDad Flat Panel & Pegasus devices plus further improvements to PCM8 drivers.
I just did the standard upgrade:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indi-full kstars-bleeding
The software is updated to 3.5.3 (kstars-bleeding), but after starting kstars, the Ekos option is not found in the Tools tab. Scratching my head, I removed and re-installed but still no EKOS. Was the option missed during the build process? I am running Linux Mint 20 and was upgrading from kstars 3.5.2 to latest. After the installation the help/info shows: KStars
Version 3.5.3 Stable
I am running Kstars 3.5.3 on an Rpi4 with an Ubuntu 20.1 64 bit OS. I have the EKOS icon in Kstars, but I seem to have a missing tab in the Indi Control Panel. In my profile I have an SX CCD and I get no errors about the driver crashing in the log, but I get no tab for the SX CCD in the Indi control Panel, so I cannot connect. The camera runs fine in PHD2 as a stand alone. As I mentioned in another thread I have tried to make sure I have all the xml files in the right locations, but that has not restored the tab in the control panel.

Same problem on RPi4 4GB running Ubuntu 20.1, decided to finally try the stable version after having a locked-in nightly version from a couple of months ago that was working fine. Looks like Jasem is sorting it out as we speak.
Interestingly I did a stable KStars upgrade on another Rpi only two days ago and that was perfect but that said it was 3.5.3 trial version (not stable) although I was accessing the stable ppa ?
I suppose we just wait or roll back to a previous version. No worries either way for me lots of cloud on the way over the next few days.
Hmm, I feel sure that there is a repository of previous versions ? github. You could try using the KStars snap package which is often an older version. Here is a link snapcraft.io/install/kstars/ubuntu
This enables a roll back if you install another later using the same method I think.
I always have a cloned SD card just for this eventuality as I have been bitten before.
"snap" does not seem to work on ARM64 (Rpi) hardware? I burned the SD card to and SSD, but there is no way to get the OS off the SSD as it is too large for the SD card (I should have made a smaller partition). Anyway I think I am stuck until Jasem fixes the latest release.
