I’m trying to get the CSI camera to work on the Orange Pi i96.
So… I’m new to 96 boards, new to orange-pi and have used linux in very few occasions. I tried the tree distros available (Raspbian, Debian, Ubuntu) and can use the device via both the Serial and VNC Viewer (although the latter is sluggish).
I have connected to my wifi correctly and can download the camera driver (gc2035) via the orangepi-config command as well as the demo c file. In Ubuntu I got a black image once and never again, in the other distros I got nothing.
I tried following this guide: https://www.cnx-software.com/2015/09/26/how-to-use-orange-pi-camera-in-linux-with-motion/ without success. It seams it the modules only come included in armbian distro (not yet available for OPi96).
I’ll try using the IOT-2G’s image of armbian as I assume it should work (they have the same CPU). I’ll update if I have any sort of success.
In the meantime, does anyone know how to get the camera to work with this Orange Pi i96 board?
It would save me some headaches.
