Yes they are. You need to copy the directories

.local/share/kstars
.indi

Both paths are relative to your home directory. Note that the paths start with a dot which means they are considered hidden on a Linux system. Many file managers don’t show those paths unless you explicitly configure them to do so.

Dario,

Can you please try the following: open a command line terminal without any of your equipment attached and without KStars started and type

dmesg -w

You will see a lot of info scroll by which are the kernel messages of Linux that you can ignore. Once it has stopped scrolling it will wait for more kernel messages to appear (which is what the -w switch does) so please plug in the eqmod cable. You will see a few messages appear. Then please plug in the qhy camera. Copy and paste the messages that have appeared in your terminal when you plugged in the eqmod and the qhy in the forum here. This will allow us to help you resolve your issue.

By the way, press CTRL-C to exit dmesg and then simply type exit to quit the command line terminal.

I used to run KStars on a VirtualBox VM on Mac about two years ago but really haven't since. Apart from removing all KStars and INDI libraries and binaries I'd advice you to also remove the .indi and .local/share/kstars directories since they hold all configuration for INDI and KStars respectively.

Having said that, why not simply install KStars for Mac and run it directly without a VM?

Have you tried resetting the park position in Ekos?

So the obvious question is: what was changed on your setup (both hardware and software) since last time when everything was working fine?

Ubuntu 18.04 no longer is maintained. Why didn't you upgrade to 20.04?

Have a look at the fourth image (the one with the overview of the index files) which also contains the sizes involved. By the way, you only need the ones with the green check marks. The ones with the red crosses and triangles are not needed for successful plate solving.

I noticed issues with the images of my ASI6200 when I connect the camera to a USB 2 port. On USB 3 (on my RPi 4) I have no issues at all.

Please open your KStars preferences and go to the INDI tab. What is configured under "Time & Location Updates"?

Make sure you get a GPS fix for the mount. Then start KStars, open the preferences, go to the INDI tab and select "Mount Updates KStars". Then open Ekos and start INDI. You should see that KStars gets updated with the time and location of the mount, which it got through the GPS.

What I see in your screenshot is a grey line with the numbers 0, 2, 4, etc below it. That's the celestial equator. All the way at the center top I see a short blue line. That's your local meridian. It stops where it hits the horizon which is just north of Capella. That star indeed is below the horizon in Alicante, Spain, around midnight this time of the year. So, a tiny bit of what's in the star map is visible from your location, though visible is quite stretching it since that part is very low over the north horizon.

It looks like it’s in equatorial mode. Does the problem go away if you switch to azimuthal mode by hitting the space bar?
