Hi Patrick,
no i have a classical NEQ6 mount.
Guide module worked correctly before updates 3.6.1 and 1.9.8
Quite many things changed in this last update so, i was wondering if some other set up was necessary...hidden somewhere else in kstars...

I replied on your post thinking the problem you have too is not directly related to the mount but more to the Guide Module
I didn't tried yet PHD2, but indeed need to install it, could help to analyse the problem.

Hi all,

i'm bothered by the Ekos's capture module that now refuses to start the next batch of pictures when finished a first batch.
The screenshot shows how the capture module stays in "idle" mode for apparently no reason. It happened already few times.
I see no reason for this behaviour...
I joined some logs.

I use Kstars 3.6.0. under Ubuntu 22.04.1

Thanks for your help.
Best Regards,

Well ...some news.
I've found the tcpConnection member and his two procedures...port() and host()...I didn't saw them...

I'm facing another problem. I try to run my proto-driver as 3rd party...I've compiled it alone, with last 3rd party sources...produced without problem
but...

sudo indiserver -vvv indi_ipx800_v4

2019-10-16T23:08:57: startup: indiserver -vvv indi_ipx800_v4 
2019-10-16T23:08:57: Driver indi_ipx800_v4: pid=28113 rfd=3 wfd=6 efd=7

Thanks.

Well...I've found this to know Address and port...but that means that user should have previously saved his configuration...not satisfaying...
Reading API and codes...I don't understand how to use Standard Properties in other way than reading config files...

IUGetConfigText(getDeviceName(), INDI::SP::DEVICE_ADDRESS, "ADDRESS", defaultHostname, MAXINDINAME);
    IUGetConfigText(getDeviceName(), INDI::SP::DEVICE_ADDRESS, "PORT", defaultPort, MAXINDINAME);

Well, after few hours looking after a solution, I use this configuration which seems working :
- Build : I remove custom process step, I use the default command "cmake --build . --target all"
And tutorials works.

Hi all,

I need to write a driver for an equipment.
For few hours, I try to set up my dev environnement using tutorials.
I have installed QtCreator, dowloaded indilib...
In "Build" configuration i've added the custom process step with command "sudo" with "make install" as argument...
But it doesn't work...this message appears at the end of the build process :

"sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified"

Does it mean that I need to set terminal in QtCreator is there an other way to do it works !

I work under Kubuntu 19.04 in a VM.

Thanks.
Best Regards.
