Gx CCD camera drivers can be downloaded from the download section of this www server. The drivers
support all currently shipped cameras, which means G0 to G4 series. If
a new camera type or variant of existing camera is added, requiring
updates of the driver, it may be necessary to download new driver
The INDI libraries and also 'cfitsio' and
'libusb-1' libraries (or their development variants) have
to be installed to compile the driver. It is also necessary to have
some C++ compiler (e.g. gcc) and CMake installed. The compilation is
launched with commands:
$ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr .
$ su -c 'make install' or sudo make install
The driver is then available for programs using INDI protocol.
If the camera is connected through the Gx Camera Ethernet Adapter
device, it is also necessary to notify the INDI camera driver about
the ETH adapter IP address. This address has to be defined in the
configuration file in the '/home/<user>/.config/'
directory. The configuration file must be named either
'gxccd.ini' or 'gxccd.<camera_id>.ini'
(e.g. 'gxccd.1111.ini'). Configuration file is a text file
and must contain a section named [driver] and the IP
address definition starting with the IP keyword:
IP = 192.168.0.5 ; define adapter IP address here
