I am trying to test the pivariety IMX230 on a Raspi 4.

I followed the install instructions and want to test the cam with

‘‘libcamera-still -t 0 -o test.jpg’’

the response is

‘‘libcamera-still: error while loading shared libraries: libSM.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory’’

After I installed libSM.so.6 libcamera produces the following:

I am guessing that some dependecies are missing…
7.What attempts at troubleshooting have you already made?

8.How would you like us to help you?

Hi @Schaggo

Thank you for the information.
You are right, it seems that the libSM dependency is indeed missing, and everything looks normal after you install it.
