It seems to be using wrong libraries version. Did you issue npm install in base and ui dir ?

Hi

1- phd2 panel will report the lost lock. But no notification, this is on my todo list !
2- to update mobindi, issue git pull and replay the build commands. Your settings will be preserved
3- there is no OS integration at all at that point, because i have been focusing more on the features rather than the install process. Tell me if you need assistance!

After many hours of troubleshooting, I managed to get it working. That is I can only issue the npm start command in /mobindi folder but not in /ui folder. Is this correct?

Hi Pludov,

Is there any way to auto start the npm server on the background without terminal open?

Yes. I think I'll release a build script to do all in a row :-)

To automate the start, you can just add the following to /etc/rc.local

exec su -l -c "( cd ~/Astro/mobindi && exec npm start 2>&1 )" linaro

Adapt the path (~/Astro/mobindi) and the user (linaro).

Hello,

I am currently working on filterwheel support; it is almost finished, it is already available in the latest version of github.
But I am waiting for a test in real conditions before releasing a version with it. (read: I just need some clear sky now :-) )

However, if you're testing in the meantime, you'd better stick to version v1.0 github.com/pludov/mobindi/releases/tag/v1.0

Hi Pludov,

Actually I am using Manual filter from INDI all the while. Can mobindi has a notification pop up when the need to change filters?

Thanks

I'll be working on notifications after I am done with filterwheels (automated ones)

I will add a confirmation mechanism for sequences, mainly to say "cover guide scope" when image type changes light to dark and so on...
From there it'll probably be very easy to also add a "change filter wheel" message before each filter switch. So you would be able to use the filterwheel simulator driver.

It will probably take one or two months until it is ready, so stay tuned !

I just tested the latest code (from master) on my jetson nano running ubuntu 18.04. Filter wheels worked fine in simulator mode.

Pre- required libraries did not install right away, had to install them separately using pip. This was ubuntu issue i guess.

One minor thing I noticed was , Once i pressed shoot to take a picture , exposure timer stuck to image exposure time instead of count down.

Everything said I am excited to use this app :-) . I will further test the app in the field in the next few days.
