Troubles installing Altair Camera drivers on Raspberry Pi (Buster) #58167
Hello,

I am trying to use the ALTAIR GPCAM Guide Camera with a Raspberry Pi running Rasbian Buster. I have installed INDI from source by cloning the git repo and following the compilation instructions. I then want to install the GPCAM drivers by following instructions here: www.indilib.org/ccds/altair-cameras.html

However, the command "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mutlaqja/ppa" results in the error:

ptsources.distro.NoDistroTemplateException: Error: could not find a distribution template for Raspbian/buster

I did manage to get the drivers installed on my AMD64 laptop running Ubuntu and the camera works nicely there.

Can someone please explain how I can install the proper drivers for the raspberry Pi? If pre-compiled binaries are unavailable, I am happy to install from source.

Thanks,

Canopus

You have to install from source on Raspbian unless you want to go with something ready like Astroberry or StellarMate.
