I have a ZWO EAF with the temp sensor connected to KStars/Ekos 3.5.8 Stable running on Ubuntu 20.04 and it indeed does work. Takes some treaking of the parameters (like everything else) to optimize the focus process for your rig. There's a spot on the Focus Module to select the source of the temperature used for re-focus on delta-temp and the current & delta reading just below the pull-down menu (see picture)
