Hello
I just got my "The Pyxis" for my telescope.
and I'd read, I think there was a driver for it.
But I can't find it, so can anyone order "The Pyxis" from Kstars?

Thank you and have a nice day.

Hi,

When creating a profile you can find "Pyxis" in the "Aux" menu.

I often get USB issues as the ports change every time you plug a device in. Restart the INDI server, try connecting again, try different ports through the driver interface.

hello
so I tried, but it doesn't change anything.
How do I find the right port for kstars?
Because when I scan from kstars it doesn't find anything!
Is there any way to know where to force kstars to find the usb port?

After you plugin the USB, type in dmesg in the console and see what you get there.. which port it gets assigned to?

No this is fine. This is a USB-HID device (not serial). I already asked Optec about this last year and they said they will send information on it, but nothing received thus far. I sent them a reminder, but please contact Optec support and ask them about this as well.

"There is no INDI driver for LE Pyxis due to the lack of the USB-HID protocol. Please send the protocol to INDI developers so that they can develop the driver."

hello
so after two email reminders to optec, I got a response from them.

I'll copy it to you.

Do you think he's gonna do this on short notice, or is this just a marketing response?
I mean, I hope they're a serious team.
If they keep their commitment, it'll give them some good publicity.
And I'll be sure to get good publicity for them...
