Camera support progress
#1
Hello,

A few interesting patches by megi have made their way to the pine64 kernel lately, bringing improved drivers for the pinephone cameras.
With a couple of extra hacks on top of that, and an experimental build of gnome-camera, support for the back camera should be working "out of the box" with the next nightly build Smile

This is far from perfect, and should be regarded as some kind of "technology preview": image resolution is 720p only, and the quality is really poor atm.
Still, I believe this is a major step forward!

You can test by first upgrading your system, then running the following command:
Code:
sudo apt install gnome-camera
(a reboot is required)

Enjoy!
