Hi Kes74,

To my knowledge, there is no guide - but in case it is useful, this is, what I have been putting down some time ago. I could not find the electronic version, just a sheet of paper...sorry, it does not look very nice.

Hi Ron,

with the not-pro version I also had the mentioned amp-glow problem on the Pi with USB 2.0, that was "fixed" with the buffer introduced with the "pro" version.

Hi Ron, hi Ezwheel,

I actually gave in with the ZWO ASI071 pro, as with two cameras I encountered ice on the sensor at -10 degree Celsius. It strikes me reading that both of you have experienced this issue.

Hi kamisan,

I just had a look on the astroberry side, concerning upgrade via standard procedure you would be fine ( github.com/rkaczorek/astroberry-server ).

In my case, there was a conflict between new Atik driver and some outdated general libraries, which was solved with the upgrade.

Hi Kamisan,

In my case - and I am sure you have done already - I got it sorted by running sudo apt-get upgrade

Hi Wouter,

Unfortunately, no success (yet): I tried the "symlink", slightly modified, as there are quite a few atik-libs (see also attached screenshot. So I put in as follows:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64_linux_gnu/libatik*.* /usr/local/lib

hope that modification did not make things worse. There are also some libs that sound similar, so I repeated the symlink for them as well: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64_linux_gnu/libatk*.* /usr/local/lib .

Just had a look - also in my case the libatik libs are at the mentioned location (x86_64_linux_gnu-folder). Maybe it has to do with the fact that I am having the indiserver on a miniPC, and not a Raspberry Pi, thus the location differs?

Hi kamisan,

Thanks a lot for sharing your experience - did you find a kind of workaround, like symlink - not sure how to write out correctly (maybe something like „ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64_linux_gnu /usr/local/lib“)
