Hi Glen,

I think as the wobbly satellite trail comes together with slightly egg shaped stars means it is due to imperfections in your mount.

I haven't read the complete thread so my advice may be duplicate. I would reset my mount controller to factory settings, plug in cables and try anew. That is just to rule out that the BT adapter has changed some settings in the controller which Windows/Ascom does not care about but Linux/Ekos/Indi does.

Well, I upgraded from 20.10 (non LTS) to 21.04. On 20.10 there is kstars-bleeding available. On the other hand, all the INDI packages are available for 21.04. So, building kstars-bleeding for 21.04 would be much appreciated.

Dear all,
I recently upgraded my system to Kubuntu 21.04. Unfortunately, the kstars-bleeding packages are missing now in Muon Package Manager (and in apt as well) and there are no packages at ppa.launchpad.net/mutlaqja/ppa/ubuntu/po...n/k/kstars-bleeding/ for 21.04. Of course, I could use one of the available packages but would rather wait for a fix.

For the time being you could try using a symbolic link.

cd to the directory where libraw is located
create a symboilc link
on my kubuntu system it would read

sudo ln -s libraw.so.19.0.2 libraw.so.20

update the library cache

sudo ldconfig

No guarantee that it works but worth a try.

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.
