Hi Wouter,
In the meantime I found a method: I installed xscreensaver and after starting that I opted for screensaver off.
Works!

Dear all,
I need a c compiler (gcc or cc) because I am going to use the bcm2835 library in order to use my relay HAT and program for it in Python3.
I followed instructions as per:
www.airspayce.com/mikem/bcm2835/index.html

Apparently the c compiler is not included in Stellarmate 1.5.4
How to obtain the compiler?
Thanks

Come to think about it, it is probably time to run everything on the 4B instead of using Kstars on my W10 laptop as I did with the RPi 3B. Just RealVNC to watch;-).
Is there a way to save the images via <remote> to my laptop?

Dear all,

Just installed SM 1.5.4 on a 4B. How do I stop Kstars from starting up automatically?
On my 3B with Mate it was simple.....

Hi Pep,

Nice to see the solution workes!
In all honesty I think it shouldn't be necessary to know so much about Linux to solve these things.....
As for my coordinates I simply look on my phone ;-))

Hi Cicera,
I see a lot of Linux passing by which I honestly don't understand much of.....
This is my experience:
I have an EQDrive system on my G11 that mimics a Skywatcher mount and so is usable with EQmod.
Worked perfectly with Windows but with Stellarmate I ran into a problem when starting EKOS:

[WARNING] Port /dev/ttyUSB0 is already used by another driver or process.
[WARNING] Communication with /dev/ttyUSB0 @ 9600 failed. Starting Auto Search...

After some talk with Jasem

:
"I'm starting to suspect that something else is interfering with it. Maybe the GPS daemon? in dmesg it was shown pps0
Try to disable gpsd:
sudo systemctl stop gpsd gpsd.socket"

That was it! EQDrive now worked on Stellarmate RPi !
But the problem returned so the final solution:
Now totally disabled the gpsd deamon. Edited the /etc/default/gpsd script and made:

START_DEAMON="false"
USBAUTO="false"
and also put # in front of the rest...

Since then I use it without a glitch :-)

Cheers, Arnold
