Hey,
Just thought I'd throw out my findings. First I also have the "Failed to open entity imx258" error, it seems to be linked to finding the world camera.
I have had some success with the selfie camera(I changed the name of the app to ppp-cam) using

./ppp-cam -s selfie --exposure 15 --again 5 --dgain 5 -o ./pic.jpg -f jpg

It takes a jpg and places it in the same directory. without the gain and exposure set the pic comes out to dark to see. The pic does have a green hue to it. I have not had any luck with the --gui switch.

I'll post any more progress I come up with.

modx

same;
selfie working with high gain settings.

noticed when trying the --mode switch, it only had two; so program thinks the selfie is somehow the world camera?

just using the dev manjaro plasma image, have not tried building latest kernel.

The world camera error is caused by missing kernel config options. Maybe one of these:

CONFIG_VIDEO_DW9714 CONFIG_V4L2_FLASH_LED_CLASS CONFIG_LEDS_SGM3140 CONFIG_LEDS_CLASS_FLASH

yes,
manjaro arm-unstable finally ships with megis latest kernel 5.18.9

Just took my first picture with the PinephonePro camera :-)



@megous : Thanks for your great work and efforts!!

Hello there,

has anyone managed to get the camera going on Mobian? This is the last step before daily driver usage for me...

Thanks!
