Issue with solver where use image compress #42551
When i use the image compress in indi control panel, the solver doesn't work. I have the message below :
<code>

in fact, the problem is that the solver doesn't find the fit image. When i look into the /tmp directory, i have not the file fitsf20913.fits.fz

I use the kstars 3.3.4 and last indi drivers

C8 lightbridge, Orion Atlas mount, EOS 1000D modified and ASI120MM for guiding.

Issue with solver where use image compress #42813
I done some more tests with and without image compression (from the indi panel).

When I capture image without compression, I see the fits file used by the solver in the /tmp directory :

and the log show that he use the file :
A,Dec = (299.9,22.7201), pixel scale 0.932895 arcsec/pix.

But, when I activate the compression, the solver doesn't find the file in /tmp directory.

In the /tmp directory, the compress fits file doesn't exist and only a file, without extension, that is the uncompress fits :


Someone can do a test and confirm, or not, the issue ?
