Camera (Dev Preview) app crashing

Mine is 6.1.0-1-librem5

Did the linked version of millipxels work for you? install from https://source.puri.sm/dorota.czaplejewicz/megapixels/-/jobs/404531/artifacts/download?file_type=archive

I have downloaded and installed this version 0.21.0-1+librem5ci80262.90b35e4. The auto focus works fine, as well the video recording. It takes some time and a lot of processes and CPU to create the MP4 file. But this is at it is as we don’t have specialized hardware for this in the L5

Am I correct in assuming I need to extract and run both .deb files, or is there a specific way I am doing this?

You need to extract the files and install using sudo apt install.

All well done:


@dcz, thanks a lot!

@Quarnero, you have only installed the small .deb file (as I did also). I think the other, bigger one, is a build with debug symbols, as it name let me think.

@guru, I’m not for real focused at using Camera now, but I’ve got this crash:


But after reboot everything worked again, other than Rec (as noted earlier already):

And by using Camera icon dbgsym_0.21.0-1 installation crashed again (hope this helps here):

Please post logs from crashes, ideally here: https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/millipixels/-/issues/
The screenshots are unreadable, what a wasted opportunity :frowning:

Please give me some time to recreate Rec related output under dbgsym_0.21.0-1 installation (after reboot).

I don’t know why this keeps happening, but please update libcamera.

Please let me know on where to get related .deb file.

apt-get upgrade :slight_smile:

Wait, what did you do differently?

Please describe each log - they are different but you didn’t indicate that you did anything differently.

Second output is under having millipixels open (after rebooting of my Librem 5, with otherwise Camera hardware reliable and working as intended) and able to make photos (auto-focus enabled as well), yet making video (by short touch on Rec) is not happening. Like: cannot access '/tmp/gigapixels.VGsohn/smo/video-0000.mp4'

Also, I already have latest (or only available libcamera0) installed. I’ll probably purge current installation of millipixels now and check on how I can upgrade other related dependencies as well.

EDIT:

First output (Camera not working) happens after trying to open millipixels for second or third time (without reboot).

Okay, the video stuff is experimental so that’s OK.

The other problem is more worrying.

  1. What did you do in the first and second run? Does something specific have to happen?
  2. Did this also happen in the previous version of millipixels before you replaced it with my linked one?

After @guru post here I decided to overwrite prior installation of millipixels_0.21.0-1+librem5ci80262.90b35e4_arm64.deb with:
sudo dpkg --install millipixels-dbgsym_0.21.0-1+librem5ci80262.90b35e4_arm64.deb

Specific was that after fresh reinstall of millipixels in version 0.21.0-1 and trying to open it for second time only by short touch of Camera icon it will not work any more (only restart or the PureOS on Librem 5 will help getting working camera again). Yet (positive news/update), now I’m charging my phone battery and millipixels in version 0.21.0-1 and millipixels app opens/works with every tip on its icon.

Therefore I just decided now to disconnect power supply at 89% and millipixels opens/works again, over and over again (after swapping it away/closing) :+1:. As I recall now, this crash output from above might easily be related to the fact that my phone battery capacity was below 50% (or even below 40%). Perhaps?

Nope (but I didn’t check this with having battery capacity at 30%, for example), regularly/distro provided millipixels worked as expected.

EDIT: Just now I executed millipixels by using Terminal and it opened Camera as expected, yet after swapping Camera away (closing it) and trying to open this app again, millipixels crashed again (not working as my last screenshot here shows).

EDIT II: @dcz, my last non-development “reproduction” update here: when I close both Terminal app and Camera app and open Camera either way my current installation of millipixels works either way, no issues at all.

If you execute in terminal and then close it with the terminal (so, by pressing Ctrl+C or closing the termonal), does it still fail to open?

@Gavaudan, thanks! Exactly, Ctrl+C within Terminal keeps everything in control. No issues at all with/after such usage/closing of millipixels.
