Could you please add libcamera-apps?

Asked by JPT

I successfully installed libcamera-0.0.4 from lunar repo.
Still libcamera-apps does not build. any chance to make this platform independent and include in ubuntu?




I would like to develop a raspberry pi app on my Ubuntu LTS PC.
But libcamera-apps are missing.
I tried to compile them, but that doesn't work.

$ cmake ..
-- Platform: amd64
-- Checking for module 'libcamera'
-- No package 'libcamera' found

I already installed libcamera 0~git20200629+e7aa92a-9, libcamera-dev and libcamera-tools via APT.

As I understand they are maintained only for the raspberry pi, but since they use a platform independent library shouldn't we make them platform independent, too?

libcamera0, libcamera-tools, libcamera-dev are multi architectures.
amd64 arm64 armhf ppc64el s390x for each package, not just one.
Debian does not have a "libcamera-app" package.
Ubuntu uses Debian packaging to avoid duplicate packaging.
Lunar is still under development it may have bugs at this point.
