I just checked on several of my pi's. They seem to have sextractor installed already. I looked into it and it seems that sextractor was most likely installed when astrometry was installed. Was that not true on your system?

Just type "which sextractor" in a terminal on the pi and you will see if it is installed. If not, we could add it, but I think it is installed already.

Thanks,

Rob

Ah. I believe you are correct. It didn't appear to be working for me before. Thank you.

Can someone tell me if this script will work on an Intel NUC i5 PC with Ubuntu installed, or is it just for SBC.. .? :)

So I designed the script with the idea that it could be run on a variety of different computers to get them set up to become a remote hub to do astrophotography. There are several scripts in there. Depending on your system, you should choose the appropriate one and there are instructions where you can leave out certain parts that won't apply to your system.

Based on your description, I think the appropriate script is the "ubuntu SBC" one.

So yes ultimately that is the idea . The script is intended for an sbc hat would be remotely accessed in an observing field, but the whole point of it being a script is that you can customize it for your situation. If it is your main laptop, you might not want to have it setup vnc, or maybe the auto login, or the WiFi hotspots, but many other settings still are desirable. So comment out what you don’t want to do

Would it be possible to create a python application with which to choose which script to run based on your system, and select with features to install?

The script now offers a choice on which version of indi & 3rdparty to pull
(1) latest master
(2) 1.8.4
(3) 1.8.3
(4) latest release
I am not clear on the nomenclature being used here, specifically Latest Master vs Latest Release.
Is Latest Master the bleeding code? Making Latest Release the most recent Stable version?
