Telescope data not showing

Mon Sep 06, 2010 6:22 pm
When using kstars (version 1.6.0, kde 4.4.2) and trying to use the telescope wizard, no data is show on the select for the telescopes.

I'm using version amd-64. I have tried on two different machines with same results.

Any ideas about it?

Thanks in advance.

It's a software question. Kstars shows a list of telescopes using it's "telescope wizard". That list is what is not shown.

As a workaround for people having this issue, you can (under linux) run your indiserver and configure a client in kstars to connect with it:

cd /usr/bin (you HAVE to move to that folder or indiserver fails)
./indiserver indi_modeloftelescope (in my case: indi_lx200autostar)
After that, you configure kstars on: Devices > Device manager > Client tab > Add:
Name: whatever
Server: localhost
Port: 7624 (Accept and connect)
Your kstars is now connected to your indiserver. Configure your port and connect with your telescope (tested with kstars and a Meade ETX-90 and is full working).
