It is INDIGO, not INDI, framework inside APT. INDI support is only a side effect of a partial INDIGO backward compatibility and only to a limited extent, e. g. fall-down to legacy INDI protocol including INDI BLOB support and formally documented INDI property/item names mapping. INDIGO doesn't and probably never will support legacy INDI streaming and snooping because a different approach was taken already.
As far as INDI has no documented DSLR properties in addition to the common CCD property set, gphoto2 INDI driver is not fully compatible with INDIGO client on properties/items level, because no name mapping does exist. Nevertheless, it may work on some very basic level (trigger the capture in M mode and download image).
Jasem, maybe you should look at INDIGO XML vs. JSON HTTP/WebSocket mapping before you will try to reinvent the wheel. Among INDIGO web applications it is used also by INDIGO ASCOM drivers for years. Peter
INDIGO has no drivers for Windows, but it has client part of the framework running on windows and also ASCOM drivers allowing to use remote INDIGO server from INDIGO or ASCOM applications on Windows.
INDI Server for windows is not maintained anymore and it was also never meant as server for Ekos on Windows. Peter
1) The guiding section of Ekos doesn't show up. Is the GP not recognised as a guiding camera (using indigo_ccd_iidc driver)? Do I need another driver?
2) The Align section (I used the INDIGO Telescope Simulator for now) won't work. I would like to use the EqMod telescope driver with a synscan mount but there doesn't seem to be (a stable) one in INDIGO. Can you run INDI EqMod and INDIGO CCD drivers side by side? If so, how?
But how do I get Ekos to use the indigo instead of the INDI drivers?
our (CloudMakers) INDI driver definitely worked with Atik One (I have one) and to some extent worked with Atik GP (I have one as well). If it is detected but can't be connected, maybe USB rules script failed for some reason. Check permissions for device created for the camera in /dev/bus/usb/something... You can use lsusb command to find which one is it.
Atik GP is actually PointGrey Chameleon camera and only basic IIDC modes are supported by INDI driver, what limits e.g. available resolutions or framerates. If you want full support, you need to use INDIGO IIDC driver, but it will not work for you out of the box because of design flaw in Ekos. Camera reports itself correctly as PointGrey Chameleon and not as CCD IIDC as supposed by Ekos. But it should work, if you will run Atik and IIDC drivers in separate INDIGO server instead of built in INDI server. It will be also faster, because you will save one interprocess boundary.
Nice, thank you Rumen! Now we need linux client working with GUI hints attributes to manage all these properties Peter
The final version (0. of UPB driver is included in standard INDIGO package (version 2.0-76+). You can install it along with INDI, the glue code for Ekos (/usr/share/indi/indi_go_upb.xml) is provided just for UPB now, but will add more drivers later.
