Hello,

I just finished uploading a new beta version (0.7.0-beta1) of my Planetary Imager application.

One of the biggest news of this release is the availability for all major platforms (although OSX users might struggle a bit..). But of course, we also have a few new interesting features, like a network mode (client and server), a new histogram, and profiles support. Please look the official changelog for more information.

You can download the packages from the official download page, or grab the sources directly from the github project page​​​​​​​

Version 0.7-beta3 is out.
Fixes a few more issues, particularly a crash when disconnecting an ASI camera.

Hi,
I just installed the new windowsversion on my desktop with immediate succes. That is not the case with linux on my laptop. I get the following fault:

rene@rene-HP-Notebook:~$ sudo dpkg -i PlanetaryImager-0.6.97-20170421-beta3-Linux-x86_64_debian-testing.deb?dl=0
[sudo] password for rene:
(Reading database ... 257257 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack PlanetaryImager-0.6.97-20170421-beta3-Linux-x86_64_debian-testing.deb?dl=0 ...
Unpacking planetaryimager (0.6.97) ...
dpkg: error processing archive PlanetaryImager-0.6.97-20170421-beta3-Linux-x86_64_debian-testing.deb?dl=0 (--install):

dpkg-deb: error: subprocess paste was killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
PlanetaryImager-0.6.97-20170421-beta3-Linux-x86_64_debian-testing.deb?dl=0
rene@rene-HP-Notebook:~$

Do you perhaps know what causes the broken pipe?
Thanks in advance,
Rene

Hello, thank you for the testing :) I'm happy that the windows beta is working quite right :)

The installation issue you found on Linux is something I've been quite afraid of, and I'll need to take care of it as soon as possible, but it might be a bit complex, for now, since it involves not only my packages, but external packages too...

Basically, it's just a conflict between packages: libqhy (which I presume you installed by INDI website), and PlanetaryImager itself.

A workaround is to install the package with the force option:
Code:
dpkg --force overwrite -i  PlanetaryImager-0.6.97-20170421-beta3-Linux-x86_64_ubuntu-16.10.deb


I will write this in the FAQ section :)

Can you confirm where did you grab libqhy from?

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. Ik did install KSTARS and INDI so there might be an earlier installation of files like libqhy.
Further: I now did install the stable package (0.6.2.) with no errors reported. But I do not see the Hat-Icon
Do I need a command like Planetary_Imager start? But that did not work. As you see I am no expert in Linux.
Btw my compliments for the images from Jupiter you made with modest aperture telescope!
kinds regards, :P
Rene

Mhh.. it should be a lowercase "planetary_imager" command, from a console.
But I really recommend upgrading to 0.7 beta for two reasons: lots of new features and improvements, and also because the final release (0.7) will probably have the same issue. It will be unlikely to be fixed until 0.8

Thanks :)
Marco

Oke I'll do that and let you know. I have also installed oacapture. Hopefully that won't interfere?

It shouldn't... even if there are files conflicts, they should only be pretty much the same files.
In doubt, PlanetaryImager is using the latest version, so it is probably better to let it override the others.
But anyway, this is only for qhy cameras, not ASI, so it should be perfectly fine :)
