if you are building from git cloned source and are getting missing library errors,
you may have to search for them using
sudo apt update
then do
sudo apt-cache search X

where "X" is a meaningful search phrase. For example,
sudo apt-cache search libindi

on my linux box gives this output:

libstrictures-perl - Perl module to turn on strict and make all warnings fatal
evolution-indicator - GNOME panel indicator applet for Evolution
libindi-data - Instrument-Neutral Device Interface library -- shared data
libindi-dev - Instrument-Neutral Device Interface library -- development files
libindi-plugins - Instrument-Neutral Device Interface library -- plugins
libindialignmentdriver1 - Instrument-Neutral Device Interface library -- alignment driver lib
libindicator-dev - panel indicator applet - library development files
libindicator3-7 - panel indicator applet - shared library
libindicator3-dev - panel indicator applet - library development files
libindicator3-tools - Tools for libindicator
libindicator7 - panel indicator applet - shared library
libindidriver1 - Instrument-Neutral Device Interface library -- driver library
libindigo-dev - Organic Chemistry Toolkit (development files)
libindigo-java - Organic Chemistry Toolkit (Java package)

libindilx200-1 - Instrument-Neutral Device Interface library -- lx200 driver lib
libindirect-perl - module warning about using the indirect object syntax
libindi1 - Instrument-Neutral Device Interface library -- shared library


lets say I know that the library is a "dev" library:

sudo apt-cache search libindi | grep dev
libindi-dev - Instrument-Neutral Device Interface library -- development files
libindicator-dev - panel indicator applet - library development files
libindicator3-dev - panel indicator applet - library development files
libindigo-dev - Organic Chemistry Toolkit (development files)


you may have to dig around like this to figure out exactly what cmake is
telling you is missing. Once you find it, sudo apt install X

I have to applaud the developers here ... thank-you for taking on the initiative to make plate solving
a cross-platform improvement and, at least from my prelim tests on linux, a significant speed boost.
I have two pi boxes: one SM OS I don't mess with and one for compile and test. How can I help ?

just as you described ... works perfectly thank-you.

great work on the new solver! I built from git source master branch on ubuntu 20.04 and ran tests
on
- regular subs captured in kstars
- blind solves on sril stacked and processed versions of same targets (32 bit float .fit)
- blind solves of siril stacks further processed in gimp (.jpg)
I can't get the star circle overlays to appear but FWIW attached are my test results.
As expected, blind solves take a bit longer but none stumped the tester. Looking forward
to having this available in SM OS release ... very fast solves on all my subs !!!

SKF bearings in zip file attached, 2 tubes of magic mount lube from amazon ( tinyurl.com/y52zda5j )
-45F to 450F should work well.

trying to get the quantities correct: from what you showed its 3 on each axis.
astro-baby.com shows 3 on the DEC shaft (2 from the large brass gear and one from the
shaft housing) but only 2 on the RA shaft. $353.37 CDN if its all 6 + 4 + 2 bearings.

thanks pentaxian23. Ah yes, our CDN currency! Also why I decided to do it all myself.
You are showing 2 sets of 3 ball bearings being degreased ? These are not the taper bearings
or the worm gear bearings correct ?

its about to get cloudy for days here so I will strip apart the mount and confirm on that
last one for the CWB. thanks! I will do a detailed photo step by step and post for others
who may get into this.

thank-you G.T.G ! 4 is what I thought. Why did you get a spare ?

hi, sorry to resurrect this older post, but I am about to hyper-tune my heq5 pro purchased 2019 new
and need some clarification. I have already done a Rown belt mod. From the heq5 rebuild guide
on astro-baby.com I can see that you need:

1 taper bearings per axis (SKF 30205) = 2 in total
2 deep groove ball bearings per axis (SKF 6006-2Z) = 4 in total
2 deep groove ball bearings per worm gear (SKF 628/9-2Z) = 4 in total

what are the other 6006-2Z bearings for ?
