  1. FYI for anyone following this thread in the future, if you are trying to get the old standard orange pi camera (that Steven sells on Ali) to work with Armbian, as of right now it is not supported in the mainline kernel, and the legacy 3.4 kernel is deprecated because the repositories are no longer supported. So for now, they don't work. We'll have to put them away until they are cool and retro like vinyl records.
  2. Hi team. I am having a difficult time getting the standard Opi CSI camera to work on the newest mainline Armbian. I don't have the ability to use a legacy version because it is coupled with a preconfigured Octopi, thanks to @ldiaz. He says that Octopi will work with the camera once the system works with the camera, and I have not been able to get it to work. There are at least a dozen threads here about that camera, but most are dated. And the ones that aren't seem to talk more about performance, and they assume that your camera is working. I also saw one about overlays, which I have no idea how to deal with, or even what they are. Something tells me it just isn't this hard and that there must be some kind of way to deal with this easily, or it just isn't supported right now in this version and that's that. Either is fine. I'm old, and my brain hurts. Thanks in advance.
  3. I caught one thing I hadn't tried from all the threads out there about the gc2035 (orange pi branded) camera. This is what it says. pi@citrico-opione:~/v4l2loopback$ v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video0 -D Driver Info: Driver name : cedrus Card type : cedrus Bus info : platform:cedrus Driver version : 5.4.45 Capabilities : 0x84208000 Video Memory-to-Memory Streaming Extended Pix Format Device Capabilities Device Caps : 0x04208000 Video Memory-to-Memory Streaming Extended Pix Format Media Driver Info: Driver name : cedrus Model : cedrus Serial : Bus info : platform:cedrus Media version : 5.4.45 Hardware revision: 0x00000000 (0) Driver version : 5.4.45 Interface Info: ID : 0x0300000c Type : V4L Video Entity Info: ID : 0x00000001 (1) Name : cedrus-source Function : V4L2 I/O Pad 0x01000002 : 0: Source Link 0x02000008: to remote pad 0x1000004 of entity 'cedrus-proc': Data, Enabled, Immutable
  4. Ok thanks I'm going to keep digging with it. I don't see a guide by @@lex, just that thread that got hijacked, and I don't understand overlays at all at present, but I'll try to figure it out. To me right now the important thing was getting octopi going and being able to install the plugin for the raise cloud. It works fantastic, and I am over the top grateful for the help. The camera is a nice thing, but not a big deal with what I am trying to do with them right now. Eventually I'll get it.
  5. That's like a smart people thread. I'm not one of those guys. They kind of hijacked the thread and the guy never tried the advice buried in there somewhere. Mine is that same orange pi camera though I think.
  6. @ldiaz have you ever tried to get an rpi CSI camera to work with the camera interface? I have tried all of the stuff I could find on the forums sudo apt-get install v4l-utils and what I could understand from this thread: but still nothing, even from just sudo mplayer tv:// Going to try a USB camera now. I just happen to have a pile of those rpi cameras. #edit couldn't get USB camera to work either, but mplayer gave me a different error, and now I have /dev/video 0 1 and 2. #edit2 later found the service in the config script, enabled it, and it got a could not remove klipper service message, but the star was there when I went to check, so it apparently worked. but camera does not
  7. I don't think he did. Octoprint came up but then wouldn't connect on the com port. I'm sure it could be monkey'd, but I didn't try. Today it took me two hours to navigate a plugin for raise cloud, but eventually got it by googling around for the error messages.
  8. To others who may be following this thread or who will hit it later, the Orange Pi One image works right out of the box, but don't upgrade octoprint. We did it and it would no longer connect to the printer.
  9. Well that was easy. Thanks a ton @ldiaz. My twin 17 year olds will now have a lot to work on next. Fun stuff.
  10. Wow exciting @ldiaz I'm on it and will let you know. Thankyou.
  11. So should I just assume this is maybe a future thing @ldiaz ? I saw @Igor took a look at it and liked it but did not comment. Maybe it'll make it into armbian-config at some point down the road. I have a few rpis that I can get started with so it isn't a huge deal. I just love to use Armbian and opis when I can for some reason. It's like my personal discovery or something.
  12. That would be awesome @ldiaz. Thanks. It's funny I am friends with @Igor on FB and asked him if he knew you lol. You are not one of the usual suspects around the FB sbc groups. Again, thanks. Have a great weekend.
  13. Yea you are probably young though. I'm 54, and wrote one of the first books on remote web publishing (in perl) back in 1996, and never had a computer course in my life. Those days are gone for me. My brain just doesn't want learn entire new things anymore. I had to ask my sysadmin the other day to remind me how to use nmap so I could find my pi on the network. At this point I'm just hoping that Mr. @ldiaz can make this thing work. I have a pile of Opi Ones from a failed project a couple years ago and I want to build a print farm for my twins. This would be a real gift for my lazy old brain.
  14. I um don't know how to do a pull request. I am logged into github, but I don't understand any of the lingo it's asking me for. I'm a root 1234 yay it works kind of guy. Anything that breaks is just agony.
