Auto launch PHD2 #54361
Hey smart people,
I run INDI server on RPI3 and use Kstars/EKOS client on Windows machine. I've been struggling with guiding so I'm trying PHD2 (so far, seems promising, although I'm hoping I can take some lessons back to the internal guider). Anyway, in trying to minimize my need to VNC into the pi to launch PHD2, I thought I'd add it to the pi's startup application list. That worked just fine, except that for some reason, when it auto launches, it thinks it's the first time I launch the application (it lost all my equipment profiles).

Is that because of how it's launched or because of how I kill it? Do I have to VNC into the pi to close PHD2 before switching off the pi?

Fair enough... I would have thought that it could lose that session's data if it wasn't closed properly, but all previous data? Like equipment profiles, calibration and dark libraries?
