Using the binaries compiled from the INDI source I was able tonight to verify that all works now. The autofocus procedure now works with the indi_fcusb_focuser driver and afterwards the ASI1600MM camera still takes images. Great!

So my question remains: why didn't this work with the nightly build?

Great! Fingers crossed that ZWO will provide a solution!

Hi David,

Is this issue still happening?

If it doesn't work on the RPi4 then I am afraid that the ZWO forum is the only place to ask for help.

With that in mind, could I get advice on the steps required to rebuild kstars?
I had a hard time finding instructions on the forum.


In case you hadn't found it it, the KStars github repo is here

github.com/KDE/kstars

See the INSTALL file for how to build it.

If you do an lspci then you should be able to find out which WIFI card you have and you can search for the driver.

Because when I did an update yesterday I didn't see it in the list of packages to be updated. I probably simply missed it, thanks!

Also, there was an issue with the ZWO in focus module that was also fixed few days ago.. maybe also compile indi-asi and check it out?


OK will do, thanks!

I was able to test the fcusb driver tonight. Here's what I did:
- I enabled the nightly builds on my mini-pc
- When I noticed that the fcusb driver was not updated, I cloned the git repo today and built all drivers.
- Then I manually copied the fcusb driver to the /usr/bin directory

After that I was able to verify that now the autofocus procedure continues imaging and I was able to reach focus. However, after that the ASI1600MM camera stopped responding. I couldn't take any pictures anymore. Disconnecting the camera in the Ekos config and connecting it again did not solve the issue. I had to completely stop Ekos and restart it in order for the camera to become responsive again. Not sure what's causing this. Here are the logs. Please note that I stopped and started Ekos three times so there are three logs. You can ignore the first file. It was created when I started Ekos to verify that the indi_fcusb driver didn't crash. The other two files contain an attempt to autofocus (first attempt succeeded, second failed) after which in both cases the camera stopped responding.

Jasem, can you please make sure that the fcusb driver is included in the nightly builds? Many thanks!

libgphoto2 automatically mounts the camera. Please use Jasem’s PPA in which this behaviour has been disabled. Search the forum for how to do that.

Or so it the git way: first create a branch and then make your changes. Any updates from the master will then not overwrite your changes.
