Missing package gsc during INDI install -ISSUE SOLVED WITH KUBUNTU 18.04 LTS #45160
Hello fellow Astronomers,
I just installed a virtual machine under Windows 10 running KUbuntu 19.04 and installed INDI library.
I added the repository with

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/ppa
sudo apt-get update

and did a full install

sudo apt-get install indi-full gsc

However I get message that package gsc cannot be found.

Then i did install of KStars/Ekos package with

sudo apt-get install indi-full kstars-bleeding

Upon opening INDI Web server to configure my INDI environment I have only acouple of CCD cameras available, no ZWO Asi Camera and also
other drivers are missing.

How can I install the gsc package???

Any hint is highly appreciated.


Thanks in advance

You have to add the indinightly repository first:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/indinightly

then install gsc:

sudo apt-get install gsc

Missing package gsc during INDI install -ISSUE SOLVED WITH KUBUNTU 18.04 LTS #45163
Hello,
I added this ppa, but I get a warning that THE NIGHTLY LIB IS INTENDED FOR TESTING ONLY AND NOT FOR PRODUCTION USE.

After adding the indinightly repository I get the same error message upon installing gsc:

Package gsc cannot be found....

So adding the indinightly rep does not resolve the issue.

Did you do a "sudo apt-get update", too? If so, I've run out of ideas.

What I am about to write now is not a solution for your problem, but rather a workaround. Is there a particular reason that you installed KUbuntu 19.04? Perhaps you could use the Long Term Support (LTS) version 18.04 and try with that? I use that version for all my imaging with Ekos and at least all drivers are available. I never use GSC so I am not sure if it is available.

On the other hand, looking at the repository at

launchpad.net/~mutlaqja/+archive/ubuntu/ppa

I see that gsc, indi-asi and asi-common are available for 19.04 so this must mean something else is wrong. Can you try to do a full system update by running these commands

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y && sudo apt dist-upgrade -y && sudo apt-get clean

and try again?

Hello,
I did exactly what you suggested:

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y && sudo apt dist-upgrade -y && sudo apt-get clean

Then I got the message that all packages were up-to-date and no package was added nor updated.
When trying to install

sudo apt-get install indi-full gsc

I again receive message that package gsc cannot be found...

Hi,

Very strange. In the mean time I installed KUbuntu 19.04 in a (VirtualBox) virtual machine, did a full update as I asked you to do, added Jasem's ppa and issued

sudo apt-get install indi-full kstars-bleeding gsc

and all is being installed right now. No errors about missing packages or so. The installed version of gsc is 1.3~ubuntu19.04.1 so I am afraid that something is wrong with the OS in your virtual machine.

I ran into the same issue and reverted back to 18.04 and all went well. I do however find that sometimes packages will fail to install if I do the entire command line but if I instead do a sudo apt-get install indi-full then a sudo apt-get install kstars-bleeding and finally a sudo apt-get install gsc that sometimes works better.

However with 19.10 it did not matter. Still failed to find gsc.

Hi mpfjr,

Have a look at the repository URL that I posted a few comments ago. The gsc package indeed is missing for 19.10 but it is there for 19.04.

Jasem, any reason why?

Hello All,
I have now created a VM based upon KUbuntu 18.04 LTS.
I installed the full INDI package including KStars/Ekos and all 3rd party drivers (GSC) with no problem
and the VM works flawlessly. So the problem ist really related to KUbuntu 19.10.

Thanks to all for your suggestions!
