I suppose the only usefulness of my previous post to your situation was to suggest setting up AllSky to save the images to an external thumb drive instead of any of the home directory folders. Sorry if this is not being very useful to your inquiry.
I use Astroberry specifically to avoid having to get into the weeds of Linux. I understand the frustration of using Linux! Although sometimes it’s easier to get things done than going through the GUI, like getting updates using the apt commands.
I’ve tried various RPi disk image Linux builds and Astroberry has been the easiest to setup and use so far. Astroberry is a complete turnkey Linux on RPI solution with full GUI interface using only a web browser. Just copy the disk image to an microSD card and put it in the RPi. Connect to the RPi hotspot, select a few settings, and it’s up and running. It uses a VNC web interface (which is brilliant), so any web browser will work. I only use Astroberry for an all sky camera solution, mainly due to the ease of setup and convenience of use. Otherwise, it’s a full complete Linux distribution and can be used for other things as well, i.e. INDI server. It could be an alternative solution for setting up your all sky camera.
I tried using my Intel Compute stick with the Windows AllSkEye app because that software is feature rich for all sky image capture and processing. However, there were numerous challenges with hardware I did not overcome with satisfaction. So, I decided to build a solution using the RPi instead.
The AllSky solution looks interesting and feature rich, similar to the AllSkEye app I previously mentioned. However it seems more like a specific purpose built solution for all sky cameras than the general purpose Linux OS environment of Astroberry. Specific purpose vs general purpose each have their pros and cons.
Whatever you choose hope it works out well for you.
