Hi all, I am an new registered user to this group. Great to have it and joined! I have revived an older Acer notebook with a new HD. I installed Linux Ubuntu 20.4 which came with Kstars. I have a Celestron CGEM mount that I've been unable to connect to Kstars and the INDI control menu. I have tried several different command line protocols, one to insure that I have permissions. Then when I attempt to connect my mount I get an error message stating "Failed to connect to port dev/ttyUSB0 Error Port Failure Error: Operation not permitted Check if device is connected to tis port".
I did a port search and it finds one port.
I am wondering if my Celestron Nexstar + hand controller is compatible with INDI and with Kstars. I do have the non + hand controller and a Serial to USB adapter that I haven't tried to use yet.
Please pass on any thoughts on the matter.
I big and hardy thank you for all you do for us newbees out here. I completed installing your suggested software with the latest versions of Kstars and ppp and all of it. I can report now that I my Linux Kstars does in deed connect to my CGEM mount now. This is a great thing you have done for me and I am not worthy! But thanks so much!
