raspistill not found

Hi everyone one,

As mentioned in the title I can have raspistill on my Pi.
I ran

apt-get install libraspberrypi-bin

with success but the command is not available. Same when I turned ON the camera in the config.

Any idea?

If I’m not mistaken it indeed got removed on Bullseye, same as with the 64-bit version. To verify that it’s really not provided by the package:

dpkg -L libraspberypi-bin

I’m not sure about the plans, whether the RPi devs plan to re-add it or what the alternative is supposed to be. We may ask here: https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/issues

What should however work is downloading these binaries manually from the RPi firmware repository: https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/tree/master/hardfp/opt/vc/bin

Thanks for the answer. I thought the issue was only for the 64-bits version.

Finally I compiled libcamera following this https://github.com/raspberrypi/libcamera-apps/blob/main/README.md. So far it works. I’m able to get a picture with:

./libcamera-still -o test.jpg

I’m going to play a bit with it. Happy to help someone if needed.

The 32-bit image/repo gets aligned with the 64-bit one with Bullseye, e.g. also the changed paths form /opt/vc to the regular /usr directory structure.

Interesting. I wonder if the libcamera apps are going to replace the existing ones :thinking:. Great that it works :slight_smile:.
