PoleMaster under Linux: Not Found QHYCCD PoleMaster equipment!

Hi All,

I need help with installing PoleMaster on my Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS (ThinkPad x230). The problem is that my ubuntu does not "see" the camera - there is no any reaction when camera is inserted into the USB port.

The linux version of the PoleMaster software works perfectly, but does not connect the device. I checked the cables and the camera under Windows - they work with no problem: the camera is detected.   

What I actually did is just installed PoleMaster_Qt-for-Ubuntu-x86_64-1.3.5.deb with dpkg -i

Am I missing something? I would be grateful for any advises or guidelines which can help me to locate and solve the problem.

Has anyone tried VirtualBox or Wine?

Thank you in advance, Roman

Hi,
    In fact,you also need install QHYSDK for ubuntu,you can download it from here.https://github.com/qhyccd-lzr/QHYCCD_Linux_New
    After you install it and connect PoleMaster,you can input lsusb on terminal to check if you can find a device which VID/PID is 1618/0941.

Qin Xiao Xu, thank you so much for the reply. I installed the SDK driver by running the simple script from the package, as the result I do see the camera, pls see below. But still, the PoleMaster software does not see the camera :( What is "SingleFrameMode testing application", should I compile and run it as well? Roman 

Code: [Select]

$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 009: ID 1618:0941

$ dmesg

    So strange,I can find PoleMaster on your machine,normally,it can be found by software.Can I remote control your machine?If could,you can install a TeamViewer and send its ID and password to me.
