QHY cameras (PoleMaster and Orion Starshoot Guider) no longer recognized #45699
There shouldn't be anything INDI related in /usr/local, so delete everything there. I just tested under 18.04 and all libqhy and indi-qhy packages installed fine.

I thought that you would say that :-), so I already went ahead and did that, then purged indi-full followed by autoremove of the obsolete packages, and reinstalled indi-full.

Now I am back at square one:



The PoleMaster is being recognized as an attached USB device (ID 1618:0940) but it does not seem to get initialized. I also plugged in my Orion SSAG which is a QHY5 and it also shows up as 1856:0011.

So two different QHY cameras are not being recognized.

Purge, autoremove and installation of indi-full gave no errors.

rules are there:

And my ZWO ASI120MM-S is being recognized fine after the indi purge and reinstall, so I think that means that the purge and reinstall process went as planned.

QHY cameras (PoleMaster and Orion Starshoot Guider) no longer recognized #45831

I updated to the latest Indi-Full driver set yesterday on my Zotac Mini PC (running Ubuntu MATE18) and installation went without a hitch, as it did on my Pi4. Notably, I did NOT install the QHY SDK 6.0.4 on that machine first, so this was a regular update to the latest Indi. I used the stable (not nightly) PPA for install via command line, as usual.

However, after the update my PoleMaster was also no longer recognized.

I don't see how this can be anything else but related to the Indi update.

Does nobody else have that problem with their QHY cameras?

As on the Pi4, my ZWO cameras are working fine and those drivers were also updated during the same Indi install, I believe.

Is there a way to roll back the QHY drivers to an earlier state?
