The page I found for Stellarmate beta channel seems to refer to switching channels in the mobile apps. I don’t see a channel control in the Mac OS desktop app. Does such a thing exist?

If not is the nightly build for Mac OS available somewhere for download?

Sorry for the “I’m lost” questions. I have been hunting for days and can’t seem to find any way to update the Mac OS app to the nightly build.

I have a workaround, which is to use CCDciel on my Mac, controlling the INDI server on Stellarmate. This works find, except that the filter names are incorrect. Maybe there is a GUI in KStars to modify the filter names, but I can't get there...

Is there a config file on Stellarmate where I can modify the filter names?

There is no "FLI CFW_config.xml" in ~/.indi

Well, the build failed on libs/xplanet after a couple of hours. I'm not sure where to go from here.

I am now watching the entire universe rebuild from source on my Mac. Hopefully I will be able to test tonight as well. I am brand new to the community and the underlying frameworks. Plenty of learning curve ahead.

Also, I am generally operating Stellarmate from kstars on a Mac. Maybe it would be easier to fetch the nightly build for Mac OS?

I found instructions for Raspberry Pi but they resulted in a pre-release build from 08-29 being installed.

www.indilib.org/download/

This is the only place where I have found any information about updating a Raspberry Pi. Where do I go to fetch the latest bleeding-edge build? Or should I just try to build from source on the Pi?

Where should I look for download/install instructions? If not the PPA then is there a place to fetch the build output?

I’ve hunted for Stellarmate update instructions but haven’t found any useful hints.

Thanks for the help.

Hi Jasem,

I am stuck updating to the nightly build. This method doesn't seem to be working:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/indinightly
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indi-full kstars-bleeding

First, apt-add-repository was not present on the Stellarmate device, so I added it with:

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

Now that apt-add-repository is there, I get an error adding the repo: "could not find a distribution template for Raspbian/buster"

Are there different instructions for getting the nightly build on this device? Or can I download binaries and drag them into the right spots?

This might be a clue...

I have only specified FLI CFW as the filter device. I have never set any properties, like number of filter slots or names of filters. I could not find any place in the UI to do that. Maybe this is a simple problem.

I have a 2009 FLI filter wheel, CFW-2-7. It is connecting via USB and is visible on the system, and in fact it gets a good ways through the connection process before crashing. Here are the last few lines output by kstyars before crashing:

org.kde.kstars.ekos: "FLI CCD is online."
org.kde.kstars.indi: FLI CFW : "[INFO] Connecting to FLI CFW..."
org.kde.kstars.indi: FLI CFW : "[INFO] Filter wheel is online. Retrieving basic data. "
org.kde.kstars.ekos: "FLI CFW filter is online."
QObject::disconnect: Unexpected null parameter
Segmentation fault


Earlier it logged this:

org,kde.kstars.ekos: Ekos received a new device: "FLI CFW"
Dispatch command error(-1):
<setTextVector device="FLI CFW" name="Model" state="Idle" timeout="60" timestamp="2020-09-15T05:12:01">

Have you seen this before??

Was there any resolution to this? I am having a similar problem connecting my FLI CFW-2-7. It is visible in lsusb, and the logs indicate that it is connecting, but there is an unexpected null parameter message followed by a segfault.
