Do this :
sudo apt list |grep cfits
to get a list of libcfitsio and lib ccfits you have to choose from. You can probably get away with just libcfitsio-bin, so I would try that first.

Thank you. I've just tried that and I get the following output
tim@dell-desktop:~$ sudo apt list |grep cfits

So it would appear they are installed already. I installed the libastro one but still get the same result

I'm wondering if libcfitsio is in the right place. I have Ubuntu 20.04, and I find libcfitsio.so here:
ls -la /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu |grep cfitsio
-rw-r--r--   1 root root  2419662 Aug  4  2019 libcfitsio.a
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root       15 Aug  4  2019 libcfitsio.so -> libcfitsio.so.8
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root       20 Aug  4  2019 libcfitsio.so.8 -> libcfitsio.so.8.3.47
-rw-r--r--   1 root root  1498520 Aug  4  2019 libcfitsio.so.8.3.47

I tested the indi server and it works. I hadn't run it on this machine before.
indiserver -v indi_simulator_telescope indi_simulator_ccd

I've just had a look and I get the same I think

<code>tim@dell-desktop:/mnt$ cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
tim@dell-desktop:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu$ ls -la /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu |grep cfitsio

tim@dell-desktop:/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu$
</code>

My indiserver error message says it can't find
libcfitsio.so.5
though. Not these other ones.

Perhaps there is another libcfitsio.so somewhere before this directory in the libpath. There may be one that is linked to libcfitsio.so.5. You can see if there is one by:
locate libcfitsio.so

Hopefully it will turn up another one somewhere besides /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu.

Hi,

I've been following this discussion for a while and I's a bit interesting case. If indisever asks for "libcfitsio.so.5" it may be because the drivers/indiserver is a old version ?
Can you post what you get with the command : ls -l /usr/bin/indi_simulator_*

There is a difference in file sizes compared to my installation, this is what I get.

So my guess is that you have a wrong version of indiserver/drivers installed for some reason ? you should check that you have the right ppa for "INDI Stable Builds".

The "locate libcfitsio.so" is just fine, but did you do a : sudo updatedb before you did the locate command ?

Oh, sorry, my bad :( I'll test to install the nightly build when at home tonight and look at the difference then.
Thanks Wouter fo the tip!

Currently I'm working on doing a full computer backup to my NAS drive and then do a clean install of Kubuntu 20.04 LTS. Hopefully that will restore things. It could be my last upgrade to the OS broke things. Digikam won't run either. I'll report back when I get this done.

Ok, that is a good idea.
Meanwhile I can report that I just did install INDI Nightly Build into a fresh install of Kubuntu 20.04.2 LTS and this is the result..

So no problem there, I think that a clean install will fix things back to a working state.
But I'm still a bit puzzled why that happened at all, well.. who knows ?

Good luck with backup!
