I’m not done with the Manjaro script yet. I wouldn’t recommend it yet. There were build errors in KStars and INDI. It is related to building certain drivers in 64 bit. I got some of it corrected in the INDI repo now, but I have to do a complete rebuild make some changes so that it can build from scratch to see if it is fixed.

That’s good news. Note that rerunning the script actually isn’t that inefficient because it doesn’t do most of the things again once they are already done, it just checks and prints a message saying it’s done already.

I do plan to take the rebuild code out of the main script and put it in a separate subscript so it can be run separately if you want to rebuild the Astro software again. It will still be run by the main script but there would be the option to just run that.

If you want to see the steps just look in the script. I have loads of documentation explaining it.

Thanks for the advice. I think til now IMHO Raspian buster still very stable in rpi4. This morning i saw a major buster kernel and firmware including ffmpeg update. Looks like RPI foundation really doing something behind the scene now. Good for us.

First time running the script was time-consuming. But after that, it is fast for rebuilding after git pull.

I would like to 2nd the request for PHDlogviewer compilation to be worked into the script. I was unable to get past compiling wxformbuilder which is required to compile phdlogviewer.

Thank you.

Me too...wxformbuilder is hard to get past for my level. At least i tried. But failed. :( Please add phdlogviewer into all scripts.

In case you hadn't found it it, the KStars github repo is here

github.com/KDE/kstars

See the INSTALL file for how to build it.

Manage to connect to all my equipment but sadly my ASI120MC cannot capture anything from RPI4. I already tried both USB3.0 and 2.0. The same thing happens.

No problem at all on my Rpi3B.

Any ideas guys?

The ASI120 does not work well with INdI, as the firmware is outdated, you really need the USB 3 version...
Many people have issues with that camera, there is a firmware upgrade for it, but not sure how easy it is to do... :)

Hi,

can show me the link or steps how to do that firmware upgrade? I do not want to waste money to invest another guide cam since my 120MC still works very well on guiding. I am now a planetary guy!

Thanks. Already done that long time ago and it works fine for guiding on my Rpi3B.
