I think I've discovered the problem. I have a WeatherCat application running on another machine to retrieve WX data out of the WeatherLink device for storage and display on my home automation stuff. I think the WeatherCat app and Ekos (or WeeWX) are competing for communications with the device itself. The WeatherLink device doesn't do a good job brokering requests from multiple clients.

Installed WeeWX and have similar results. I see connectivity and initial data sets, but then seems to have issues re-connecting and updating.

Still have the exact same issue with latest nightly. Anyone have luck with an ethernet connection to a Vantage Vue?

Oh wow - of course! I installed my reducer for a wider shot of the Veil, and forgot to set the scope params to the shorter focal length. I stared at those numbers many times, noting that they were correct (just not for THIS config!)

I'll bet that's it - thanks for the reminder! Might get a chance to try it tonight.

Perfect WX last night - thought I'd try to image the Western Veil.  Running KStars 3.5.4 Beta (Build 2021-05-28T02:09:57Z) on Ubuntu 20.04.2.  All devices seemed to be working fine.  I couldn't get any shot to solve to save my life.  Tried StellarSolver, ASTAP local (all index files), Astrometry local and online.  Always the same behavior - image looks great with plenty of stars in focus, solver spins and never comes back or occasionally I'll get the "Solver failed - check to see if you have enough stars" message.  It got too late and I gave up before I turned on any logging.

Known issue?  Anyone have a known good solver config for latest KStars and Ubuntu?  Hints or suggestions?

I also have a Davis Vue WX station with an IP connection - but can never get Ekos to stay connected to it for very long. It connects up fine and logs data for a while, but then drops with an error. Have you had luck with maintaining a live connection to your Davis station?

I followed the "Building INDI from Source" section only and that took care of it. Didn't have to build the third-party stuff or KStars or anything else. EAF appeared in Ekos and connected. Thanks!

Hmm - that's true. I'm certain I had the guide cam selected when I ran it - seen the behavior more than once. I'll watch it a bit closer, thanks.

The library links look fine:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     18 Apr 26 10:18 libEAFFocuser.so -> libEAFFocuser.so.1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     20 Apr 26 10:18 libEAFFocuser.so.1 -> libEAFFocuser.so.1.3
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 125224 Apr 26 10:18 libEAFFocuser.so.1.3

Executing the indi_asi_focuser via command-line does nothing.

I can't find anything on missing EAF or anything related from "starman365" or "Brian". Anyone else have a suggestion?
I tried reverting to the 3.5.3 Stable, but now that won't connect to my ASI equipment at all.

I'm seeing the same on Ubuntu with ASI cameras - 3.5.3 Stable

Yes, it certainly is/was.  There is something strange going on.  I changed the Guider and Via pull-down menus a few times and it started working.  Seems there is something that's not loaded up correctly on initial startup?  I tried disconnecting and reconnecting, etc.  Working now - thanks.
