v4ldriver - Video4Linux Generic driver for INDI telescope control
[ -v ]
KStars allows you to configure
and control astronomical instruments such as telescopes and focusers via
the INDI protocol. v4ldriver is a device driver for supporting
particular types of external hardware.
You should normally not need to run this driver directly. Instead you
should use KStars to configure and operate your astronomical instruments.
Most operations can be found under the Devices menu within KStars.
KStars will start the INDI server internally, and the INDI server will
in turn start this device driver.
Much more detailed information can be found in the KStars Handbook, as
KStars is a graphical desktop planetarium for KDE, and forms part of
the official KDE edutainment module.

The KStars Handbook contains detailed information on how to use INDI for
telescope control. You can read this handbook in the KDE Help Centre.
Alternatively you can enter the URL
directly into konqueror or you can run
from the command-line.
If the KDE Help Centre is not installed then you can install the package
kdeedu-doc-html and read this documentation in HTML format from
