Glad to hear about it. Dashboard update is broken in 1.5, run the Package Updater or just manually upgrade:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade

Hey with your ethernet connection to the PC, how did you have that configured? Was the Windows PC a DHCP server for the Stellarmate?

It's on my home network.
RPI's wire-connected to my router (through a hub). I assigned a fixed IP for SM - like 192.168.0.121.
All network settings - default.
I never had issues with the wired connection.
I did have issues with WiFi (RPI4. RPI3 was fine) but now it's also good (as of 1.5.0. Again, everything is default).
In the field I use a 10" HDMI monitor and USB mouse/keyboard. No network. <-- really like this setup.

I am going back to this as it is so much easier to focus without the delay inherit in using wifi or the iOS app. I've been hesitant about it as some ground loop condition blew out the HDMI port in my RPi3 when the battery ran out and i plugged in the 12vdc connector to the monitor and it sparked, no more video :( I will just me more careful about applying external power to the monitor while and ensure my batteries are charged.

Megiddo wrote: jasem, Love that little video! A great way to show stuff.

I've had my linking working fine for the past year. But with the last release the image 'Directories' are being created with rwxr-xr--x permissions.

All I have to do is at the /Pictures directory... is to run "sudo -R chmod 776 *"


I tried this but I get an error that the R is an invalid option.

as of now every sub has a permission restricting read/write so I can't transfer to my iMac .

any help to solve this is appreciated

Try "sudo chmod -R 776 *"
Make sure you are in the /Pictures directory before executing this command.

Two things:

1. Run this command: chmod -R u+rwX,go+rX,go-w /home/stellarmate/Pictures
2. Update to the latest packages as the above issue is resolved already with the latest KStars release available for StellarMate.

ok I did update to 1.5.1 but all of the subs I took last night on 1.5.0 are read protected, will this command change all of those to be readable ??

to run the command I just go to the terminal and enter the command you list in #1 ??

ok that seems to have solved it thanks

Same with me.
I have the new version and it still creates the directories as rwx - - - - -, but I wrote a quick script to chmod them and a desktop icon to launch it.
I put the file ChmodPics.sc in my directory I have called MyScripts (you can put it anywhere you want, but you will have to change the desktop file to point to your location)
I put the file ChmodPictures.desktop in the "/home/stellarmate/Desktop" directory.
Of course you will need to rename them, removing the .txt at the end.
I just double-click the icon when I'm ready to download my files.

I read were you can call the script right from the desktop file... which would be the best way. But I never could get it to work.

So directories are created as 700? Alright so I have to get the root cause of this... KStars process should be running as 'stellarmate' users .. so why would it make 600 files and 700 directories by default?

EDIT: I just checked and the directory permissions appear OK.
stellarmate@stellarmate:~/Pictures/Light $ ls -lh
total 8.0K
drwxr-xr-x 2 stellarmate stellarmate 4.0K Mar  1 05:41 Green
drwxr-xr-x 2 stellarmate stellarmate 4.0K Mar  1 05:41 Red

I have taken the plunge and replaced my Pi3 with the Pi 4.
All seems to work well with HEQ5, 294MC, 224MC and Pegasus PPB.

One question I have is should the Update button in the StallaMate dashboard work?
Mine runs the percentage usual goes to about 3% then I get a message saying the update was successful but the update icon remains red with a little red exclamation mark next to it.
