INDI Library v1.9.6 Released (21 May 2022)

Bi-monthly INDI Library released with new drivers and bug fixes.

Is INDI ready for Ubuntu 22.04?

Just an update... just found out that Ubuntu own version is marked HIGHER than PPA version, so now have to adjust the version name so we can override them. This was never an issue before they decided to build 3rd party drivers.

So is it possible to let them to build the new version for you? What is their SOP when a 3rd software release a new version?

I have just installed ubuntu 22.04 on a pi4, and confirm that stars 3.5.9 stable installs perfectly from the ppa.

Good news! The performance of stars and ekos under Gnome in jammy seems noticeably more snappy than in 20.04. I haven't tried an actual imaging session yet, but this is really an improvement.

Confirmed....installing fine on 22.04 LTS (kubuntu) now. already had kstars and indi-bin working fine as I'm connecting to a rPi that hasn't been updated... yet... but just installed indi-full on my pc with no conflicts or dependency issues whatsoever. Now i can connect my additional equipment to my pc too. Thanks Jasem and anyone else who sorted this for us all. :-)

I must be a little thick today as I still cannot get this to install on 22.04.

I am using these steps:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mutlaqja/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt install indi-full kstars-bleeding

That gives the warning of unmet packages.....Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

What am I missing?

Because of previous failed install attempts, I had to start with

sudo apt update --fix-missing
sudo dpkg --configure -a

Then the exact steps you did worked for me.

Thank you for that tip.

However that didn't fix the issue. I'm still getting the same unmet dependencies / broken packages message.

If you had the Ubuntu official indi installed before, you should remove them ALL first.
Some packages without 'indi' prefix should be removed like:
sudo dpkg --remove libplayeronecamera2
sudo dpkg --remove libfishcamp1

Then do:
sudo apt --fix-broken install

Thanks for the suggestions. Alas they didn't work.

As this is a new install, not yet a production machine, I just started over and did a clean install of Ubuntu 22.04.

After performing all Ubuntu updates, Kstars installed fine. Phht, go figure.

Thanks again for the help.
