Also unable to correctly stop indi.allsky. When i send the "systemctl --user stop indi-allsky" command, it takes minutes, and after that i see the status:
pi@indi-allsky:~ $ systemctl --user status indi-allsky

Also i see that video0 device is busy maybe:

Laszlo,
If this is the USB 2 type ASI 120 MC model it will no longer work with Linux operating systems. You will need one of the newer USB3, ASI120 MC-S cameras or USB C, ASI120 mini for it to work.

Hope this helps

Until today at 13h it was working. I have the ASI 120 MC (black USB connector on the side).

Laszlo,

Yes it will sort of work, especially if you have got the compatible firmware "asi120mm-compatible.iic" installed it will show some sort of image, but it will be mainly broken & distorted and the exposure controls don't fully work, There are a few threads about this subject on the forum. It would be worth a search through and have a read up on it.

Regards

Alan

Is it possible to use an IMX-291 camera from those sold on Aliexpress? I'm trying to make one work but I think the driver I chose in the installation ( 24 indi_sony_ccd) is a wrong option.

I think you would use the indi_v4l2_ccd server.

Aaron,
I appreciate all the hard work you have done to create this package! I just installed Indi AllSky on an Astroberry server running on a Raspberry PI 4. The installed seemed to go just fine. It was a clean install of Astroberry and Allsky. I started the service just as described in the install section of the readme file, no errors. Where things go off the rail is when I try to access the application with the Raspberry PI using raspberrypi.local/ I get the Astroberry log on page. what am I doing wrong??

looks like the following fixed it:
# apt remove fcitx-frontend-qt5 fcitx5-module-quickphrase-editor libfcitx-qt5-1 libqt5svg5 libqt5widgets5
I had to remove them first...
