Hi Jasem,

could you elaborate bit more on what exactly should be done. I have tested it with Kstars 3.6.0 Stable and
org.kde.kstars: Welcome to KStars 3.6.1 Beta
org.kde.kstars: Build: 2022-09-17T21:16:43Z
with no change, still the FITS files do not conform. Do I have to use a nightly build of indilib and 3rd party drivers on my remote PC?

stacking pictures I took in June (EKOS/INDI May versions with toupcam driver) with pictures taken recently (EKOS/INDI July versions with toupcam driver) I got errors. Closer inspection showed that the June files conform to the FITS standard with HDU/file size being a multiple of 2880 bytes and the newer files do not conform.

Could this issue please be resolved in the next version?

I use an Omegon veTEC 571M/C with the "Touptek" driver and this works reasonably well since a few months. There is also an Omegon Pro driver available. For which camera models is this driver made?
Currently the Touptek driver still uses the SDK version of 202110. I have noticed that Omegon has a newer SDK made available for download: nimax-img.de/Produktdownloads/68723_4_SD...loads/68723_4_SDK.7z
Would it make sense to include this SDK with the next release? Or maybe use it just for the Omegon Pro driver?

CS, Markus

worked on my freshly installed RPI with 4GB RAM and Ubuntu 22.04. One caveat is that I had to increase the default swap size from 1GB to 2GB otherwise the kstars compile failed.
Maybe you would like to add the indiweb install to the script and/or indistarter. I guess most potential users would want it.

is the script designed for Raspbian or Ubuntu 22.04 LTS?

my FITS files generated by EKOS (with Toupcam driver) do not have the OBJECT keyword set to the Target name. It's always UNKNOWN although the target is known and appended as Prefix to the filename. I searched around but could not find the option to make this work or maybe it is a bug?

the DBUS problem reappeared after a reboot and this time I found the solution without another reboot. The environment variable XDG_RUNTIME_DIR has to be set to /run/user/$UID.
