Summary0001939: Error processing temporary file in /home/starhopper/.config/ccdciel/tmp
last night under the stars I was not longer able to platesolve.
CCDCiel logged:
Error processing temporary file in /home/starhopper/.config/ccdciel/tmp

I did not know how to solve this issue. I changed the settings to an other folder, but the error persists. Even the root of my home folder does not work.
This behaviour was not before 0.9.36-1029, but may not related to CCDCiel.
What can I do.

TagsNo tags attached.

The origin of the error is because the mount was not connected to CCDciel, so it not know the approximate position for plate solving, and you cannot "Solve and Sync" in this case.

Sorry the error message is wrong because of a change in this version.
When asking for a simple solve the message must be "Cannot find approximate coordinates for this image. The astrometry resolution may take a very long time."
And if asking for "Solve and Sync" it must immediately say the mount is not connected.
This will be fixed in the next version.

Thanks for your fast reply. It is perfect clear tonight. I will try to do it without it. Must not forget, that I never connect my mount with the PC.

You can also try to reinstall the version 0.9.35, it is still available from
I let it available for download because I am currently not at home and may have difficulties to build a new version.

I test my fix using the ccd simulator without connecting the mount and it work.
So I close this issue, the fix will be in version 0.9.37 I will do in one week.

Unfortunately this is not possible for tonight.
I have a very poor Internet access that not allow me to ssh to my build server and with a speed of a few Kb/s, something I have not seen since 20 years.
Normally it will be better tomorrow evening to build a new version.

Finally the version 0.9.37 is now available.
