Hi Ferrante,

it's been a while but now I start using the modified indi-ikarusroof driver. it works on a seperate RPi called "allsky".
Usually I use my laptop as a client for a StellarmateOS-Server called "RPI44". This server uses drivers from "allsky" like indi_gpsd and indi_ikarusroof_dome.
Masterserver "RPI44" links to "allsky" by @allsky term in config module of EKOS. The client laptop can not find the "ikarusroof" driver under "Domes" section. Can you explain or advice hoew to proceed? Again the driver works and shows up in the local EKOS-Profile on "allsky" but not on the client laptop.

thank you in advance

Hi community,

I have adapted the given scripts to my needs, but one question came up. What actually shall abort.py do? And how can I recognize the state after an abort?
My idea would be to count runtime of the motors. But how to transfer this information to the driver or client? 
How actually works status.py? It needs 2 arguments but who is sending this path information?

thank you in advance

Hi, Jasem,

I would open up my network for you. You would need to connect by an VPN tunnel. But it will take a day to put everything in the right order, ok?

Hi,
I have successfully tested my CGEM DX mount with the Celestron WiFi-Adapter called "SkyPortal" (it is identical with SkyQLink). I integrated the WiFi-device in my home network and used port 2000. It worked very well.

Hi Guys,

I have a question about the status communication within the indi_script_dome driver. There are a few python schripts available. Those are doing basically nothing in regard to move the roof but obviously the communicating a current status of the roof like  "park.py":

 > cat park.py  
#!/usr/bin/python
#
# Park script for INDI Dome Scripting Gateway
#
# Arguments: none
# Exit code: 0 for success, 1 for failure
#

import sys

coordinates = open('/tmp/indi-status', 'w')
coordinates.truncate()
coordinates.write('1 0 0')
coordinates.close()

sys.exit(0)

>
But I don't understand the meaning of the functions i.e. coordinates(). Can someone give a hint please?

Maybe a silly question but will the driver in general work with Celestron SkyPortal Wi-Fi-adapter?

Hi,

maybe it is off topic but I can not find a comprehensive list of name convention in INDI development. A few things I have found in the very good new documentation site.
I would be very thankful for a hint.
