Yeah, good guess. I don't know why but my locale was set to en_DE. Set it to de_DE and restart and phd2 runs fine. Thanks for your help.

Thanks guys for the suggestions. I added libs and played around with system settings, changing themes and settings which could make a difference. No success. On a second machine phd2 runs fine, but I couln't find what the difference is. Now I fetched the source code and compiled it. Again, no success. Finally, I was able to pin down the problem to some unicode characters in the html code of the About dialog. When I comment out the lines "<td>G\u00FCnter Scholz</td>" and "<td>Iv\u00E1n Zabala</td>", phd2 runs fine. Any ideas?

Whenever I start phd2 (2.6.6.rev20190325-0ppa1~ubuntu18.04) on my Laptop and press Help, About... it immediately crashes.

This post is just to mention it:

According to www.avalon-instruments.com/support/13-tr...suggested-parameters guider settings look different between tooth belt and worm gear driven mounts. This may apply to an EQ6-R as well.

I attached a screen recording. When I'm stubborn enough, it always crashes sooner or later. The video implies that this is a minor issue as I had to switch quite often but when I first encountered it, it crashed real soon.

Making programs more stable is the better approach.

I just got the FITS viewer to kill KStars 3.1.1 (build 2019-03-09). It's on Kubuntu 18.04 Dell laptop and up to date OS and KStars/INDI from PPA. Now simply start KStars and open a FITS file. Then click the histogram tool and then the Statistics tool, histrogram, stats, historgram, stats. After more or less switches I get a segfault. See the bebugger output in attachment.

I just upgraded to Kubuntu 18.04 to 18.10 on my AMD64 desktop and found that asi-common is not available from stable ppa. Thus indi-asi can't be installed.

Klaus replied to the topic '7 ports powered USB hub issue with EKOS' in the forum. 1 year ago

Is it a USB 3 hub?

The reason for asking is that I bought a powered USB3 hub recently because my USB2 port lost one of its ports. So I changed it and plugged SBIG cam, ASI 120MM-S (USB3 model) and USB2Serial cable for EQMod in. Surprisingly everything worked but the serial connection didn't. And it wasn't listed with lsusb just as yours. So I think that using a serial2usb connection might not work on USB3. I checked it with both RPI3 and my Laptop but as far as I remember there was no difference.

Your system may lack libcurl4-gnutls-dev package. The headers provide the missing references.

Klaus created a new topic ' MAX_EXP_RETRIES does not work in indi_asi_ccd' in the forum. 1 year ago

As I still have issues getting images from my ASI120MM when used together with EQMod I took a look into the code of indi_asi_ccd.cpp. When requesting an image, lets say one second exposure time, the log is flooded with "ASIGetExposureStatus failed. Restarting exposure..." messages. From my point of view a counter inside ASICCD::getExposure() should prevent such a possibly infinite loop. The retry counter is initialized inside the function but the function is called anew when retrying to get an image. Thus the counter is reset to zero again and thus making it useless. I'm referring to stable PPA code. Agree? Disagree?

Klaus replied to the topic 'ASI 120MM no longer working together with EQMod' in the forum. 1 year ago

Today I switched from stable ppa to the nightly builds and run a quick check on a test machine. In this environment the cam gets images while EQMod being up too. This looks very promising and I'll take a closer look later in the day.
