Hello folks, I'd like to give it a try to switch my current imaging software to a more powerful Ekos/ KStars.  I come across the following youtube video talking about the installation: https://www.youtube....h?v=A6JM6iINBkA

 

However in the download section of the Indi website, it seems the link to download the Ekos VM has been removed: https://indilib.org/download.html

 

Anyone know what's happened?

I haven't used Kstars/EKOS for a bit, but the download is still available here:

Yes, the Kstars/ Ekos is available, I’m referring to the Ekos virtual machine, for running in a Linux VM. The video talks about it.

It seems to me that would be best investigated on the INDI forum...

Already replied in the INDI forum, crossposing here : The VM is stopped because of a too large taxing on bandwidth for Jasem, and that the astro equipment device drivers did not always work nice in a VM. See www.indilib.org/forum/ekos/3295-ekos-vm.html#25151

You can download EKOS for various operating systems natively now at indilib.org/download.html but for fi. WIndows that does not include the device drivers. For that you still need a remote Linux computer with them (regular PC or something like a RPI).

You can build an Ubuntu mate VM yourself very easily in VMware or virtual box then follow the Ubuntu INDI installation instructions at:

 

https://indilib.org/...oad/ubuntu.html

 

Then install the INDI web manager:
