I’m using IMX519 with RPi4 and libcamera. I followed the instructions came with the camera for installation and have been lucky with
libcamera-still so far.
--autofocus works but for some reason
--continue-autofocus will throw an unrecognised option error. I can’t see
--continue-autofocus in the list of commands when I run
-h either. I’ve installed both
libcamera_apps as instructed on arducam’s website. Any idea what the issue might be?
Edit: It seems for some reason libcamera-dev and libcamera-apps weren’t installed. Now when I try to install them I get an error saying
Repository is broken: libcamera-dev:arm64 (= 0.0.10) has no Size information
Repository is broken: libcamera-apps:arm64 (= 0.0.10) has no Size information
How to get around this?
I’ll check it out tomorrow. Please don’t wrroy
afmode continous works for me
libcamera-still -t 0 --afmode continuous
Thanks! Just for info, I’ve also tried to directly install the .deb for
libcamera-apps from arducam’s GitHub (basically the same links the .sh uses) but that also didn’t work.
Thank you! I’ll see how this works for me. Still curious to know how to get -dev and -apps installed though.
I was getting a segmentation fault with
libcamera-still --afmode continuous so I’ve decided to remove and reinstall libcamera. When I try to install
libcamera-dev with the below:
./install_pivariety_pkgs.sh -p libcamera-apps
It gives me the below error:
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Unknown error, please send the error message to [email protected]
Any idea what could be causing it? Thanks!
Did you clean up all deb packages in the directory?
rm -rf *.deb
You need to remove all libcamera in the environment
sudo apt remove -y libcamera-dev
sudo apt remove -y libcamera0
Then execute, you must have dev first, and then install apps
wget -O install_pivariety_pkgs.sh https://github.com/ArduCAM/Arducam-Pivariety-V4L2-Driver/releases/download/install_script/install_pivariety_pkgs.sh
chmod +x install_pivariety_pkgs.sh
./install_pivariety_pkgs.sh -p libcamera_dev
./install_pivariety_pkgs.sh -p libcamera_apps
Thanks! I had failed to remove it all but now I did. After a clean reinstall, while I still don’t see the
libcamera-still --afmode continuous works!
The clean install also solved the seg fault I was getting with
--afmode continuous before.
Thank you @Carl and @Edward!
