Just as info. I recently purchased the stellarmate OS. I installed it in my Raspberry Pi and it worked.
Yes. Of course!
Is it possible to have the sequence events rotate?
In other words. If I have one event with 30 red frames, another with 30 green frames and a third with 30 blue frames.
Can I make them run 1 red, 1 green, 1 blue, 1 red, etc. Instead of all 30 reds, then 30 greens and finally 30 blues?
Sequence generator Pro calls this "rotate through events".
The steps I mentioned are in an old laptop using Ubuntu Mate 16.04.
I also have a StellarMate. Which uses a Raspberry Pi. On that one everything works. Probably because all the software was installed and tested at the factory. It also has Ububtu Mate 16.04. If you give up maybe you'd like to buy a StellarMate. They are not expensive and they ship them quickly.
I was getting the same message when using the Bluetooth panel to "Connect to serial port".
Now I do this:
1. Just pair the device but don't use the "Connect to serial port".
2. Then in a terminal type the command:
sudo rfcomm bind hci0 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx;xx
Where xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx is the address for your device. You can see it in the Bluetooth panel.
You have to do it every time you restart.
I hope it works for you too.
OK. I reinstalled Ubuntu mate 16.04. Re installed Indi-kstars.
Everything works great !
