Did you perform the additional steps in the device manager?
Do you have a Windows PC in the first place? If yes, you can do all these steps on that Windows PC first then only go back to your Linux box. I sometimes will still have this kind of issue on my QHY168C in Linux. But in Windows no problem at all.
1. First download whatever latest QHYCCD system pack or driver updates from their website.
2. update all your QHYCCD cameras, USB drivers, camera firmware and etc on Windows PC.
3. But according to many users successfully updating the system pack doesn't mean it will update the camera. So, you have to follow the steps on this website to properly update everything.
" In case of USB driver update problems
Some folks have experienced issues updating the USB driver, where it appears that the driver update did not take. There is one thing to try if this is the case:
1. With the camera disconnected, right-click Start and open Device Manager
2. Go to the View menu and select Show hidden devices
3. Expand the AstroImaging Equipment section
4. Right-click QHY5IIISeries_FW, select Properties, and then the Driver tab
5. Press the Update Driver button, and select Search automatically for drivers
6. Also do steps 4 and 5 for the QHY5IIISeries_IO device
7. Plug in the camera. Verify that it is on the newer device driver version "
This is how I manage to get my qhy168C working every time when I updated to the latest QHYCCD system packs.
Good luck on this.
The easiest way to install dual boot is to install windows OS in the first place, then only install Linux alongside Windows. The Linux installation process will guide you through it. No need to worry much.
If you need a lightweight Linux system, Lubuntu or Xubuntu are good choices. Both also can support kstars.
I choose Kubuntu is because according to Jasem Kstars is develop on this Linux distro.
You are right. I just found the answer to it. Now my Kubuntu's kstars manage to see my camera already.
Thanks a lot.
Remember to make it dual boot and I bet you will use Windows more than Linux later.
I am having this issue after all the kstars, INDI update...etc. Very weird is under lsusb and dmesg, I can see the camera detected.
under dmesg: [ 1520.698387] usb 3-1.4: new high-speed USB device number 31 using xhci_hcd [ 1520.799033] usb 3-1.4: New USB device found, idVendor=1618, idProduct=c167, bcdDevice= 1.00 [ 1520.799039] usb 3-1.4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [ 1520.799042] usb 3-1.4: Product: WestBridge [ 1520.799045] usb 3-1.4: Manufacturer: Cypress [ 1520.799048] usb 3-1.4: SerialNumber: 0000000004BE

What I've done so far:
1. Change USB3.0 cable
2. Use another powered USB hub.
3. switch to another USB port on my miniPC
4. Direct connect with my miniPC.
5. updated the SDK to the latest.
So far nothing works! But................. because of my minipc is dual boot, so, after I boot into windows and using NINA, APT, TheSkyX, CCDciel surprisingly everything connected!
What is your advice or opinion on this? Is latest Kstars issue or my Kubuntu issue?
Still Kubuntu better.
I re-modified my wireless remote this morning. Now it works with the SNAP port.
Thanks a lot for the script!
I got 2 modded DSLRs, one is having a shutter release port and another one is without. So, that modified wireless shutter remote is for it.
Is SNAP port design same as a normal Camera wired timer remote? But when I look at one of the skywatchers manuals, the TIP and RING are for trigger and the SLEEVE is for SNAP. For a normal wired shutter release cable, the TIP is shutter and the RING is the focus plus the SLEEVE is common.
The script still does not work with the modified wireless remote. But if the SNAP port cable directly plugs into the camera shutter release port, it works.
