AstroPi3 Scripts revised

Hmm, maybe my script could check the IP to make sure it is a valid IP when the user enters it, if it is not, it could warn the user and stop trying to add the Link Local connection. . .Let me consider that. Probably what happened was that the script tried to create Link Local with the invalid IP you entered and Network Manager probably rejected it.

Mine do not have such issue as well with internal simulator and with INDIWeb Manager app "remotely" and it worked fine too.

I noticed modemmanager was installed during the script run. This should be avoided/removed because it is known to cause issues with serial bluetooth (such as EQmod BT dongles)
Also, I'm not sure if it is related to your script or not, but I could not see my USB flash media drives mount at all.
Over all I must say the script worked very well. Thank you.

Yes, modem manager being removed used to be a part of the script. I can go check that it is. It certainly should not have been installed during the script run, but some other program may have it as a dependency. I can check.

Nope, weird.. it was in my steps that I had listed in 2017, but it is missing from the first iteration of the automated script. I don't remember any reason for why I would have removed that step. I can put it back.

Ihoujin,

The modem manager removal is restored.

Correct, volumes should not mount automatically because that interferes with the ability to connect to a number of cameras. Please see this for details:

Unless there is a better way to solve this problem that I don't know about?

Perhaps this is a better solution?

I can try to implement that on Wednesday.

Also, the IP address is now checked when installing Link Local, so you can't end up with a situation like Ihoujin reported.

I am aware of the canon mounting issue that has affected some users. Although I use a canon t3i, it has never come up for me.

I seemed to be having the same issue with my Nikon Z7 on my Odroid-N2 (which I attributed to my permitting updates to the system until things broke). I re-flashed my Odroid-N2 system, did a system update and used Rob's AstroPi3.sh script to get things working again. The only addition for me was re-compiling the driver for my rtl8822bu wifi dongle (which I see now Rob also has a script for) and using NoMachine for remote desktop access (apparently there is no EGL/GPU Acceleration on X11 on the N2).
Thank you Rob.

I have just encountered the same issue. Everything was fine at first. But now when I try to run a profile from EKos, KStars crashes.
I have been configuring various things in the meantime so I am not sure when it broke.
