Error - megapixels not opening
#11
Unfortunately,
Code:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure megapixels

did not do the trick on my phone.

Going
Code:
sudo apt purge megapixels

and reinstalling from http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/m/megapixels/ did not work either; simply because I lacked the skills or a step by step guide, so I only got error messages.

So I did not know anything better than to
Code:
sudo apt install megapixels

What should I say? It works again.

I did no changes on mine, it sometimes works sometimes not.

I have it working again, but it locks up if it decodes a QR code.

It should work anew with the next minor version of GTK (4.6.2).

Any idea when that GTK update will be coming down the wire? I just updated my Mobian installation and Megapixels is still screwed up. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. When it does run, a QR code will crash it.  I very rarely use the camera but have found it useful on a couple of occasions so it would be nice for this to work again.

Attempting to run megapixels from the command line yields the following:

Code:
Gdk-WARNING **: 14:24:24.823: gdk_gl_context_set_required_version - GL context versions less than 3.2 are not supported.
Initialized OpenGL 2.1

Thanks, I'll run an update and see how it works out!

Results: Did the update but no joy, Megapixels still crashes on the same error. Same after running apt purge megapixels followed by apt install megapixels.

Another update: Taking a hint from a previous post here I ran dkpg-reconfigure megapixels and now it works, including recognizing QR codes and offering to launch a web browser if it contains a URL.

just a note :
In the early Mobian days it was mentioned they 'May eventually return to "Pin Hole" as their camera app'
