Hi all,

Trying to get this TIS camera to work on my Raspberry Pi. What's the trick?

In a test with just this camera, I invoke
indiserver  -v indi_v4l2_ccd
Then in Ekos, attempting to connect produces this error:
2019-06-09T13:55:14: [ERROR] Error: unable to open device. Cannot identify /dev/video0: 2, No such file or directory
This seems like an OS level error, and sure enough, there's no /dev/video0.
Output from lsusb:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 199e:8101 The Imaging Source Europe GmbH DFx 21BU04 Camera
Is there some additional support required for this camera in the Linux kernel that's missing?
uname -s -r -m -p -o -v
Linux 4.19.42-v7+ #1219 SMP Tue May 14 21:20:58 BST 2019 armv7l GNU/Linux
Sorry for asking here, but there doesn't seem to be any clear documentation on v4l2

Thanks for your help,

Charles,
This camera use the uvcvideo driver but it is not recognized automatically.

The solution is to add a udev rule :
sudo vi /etc/udev/rules.d/80-dbk21-camera.rules

in the file add:
ATTRS{idVendor}=="199e", ATTRS{idProduct}=="8101",  RUN+="/sbin/modprobe -b uvcvideo"

ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="drivers", ENV{DEVPATH}=="/bus/usb/drivers/uvcvideo", \
  RUN+="/bin/sh -c 'echo 199e 8101 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/uvcvideo/new_id'"

Thanks so much! Works like a charm.

Not sure who the maintainer of Imaging Source CCD page is, but I would recommend that this information be added there.

Can this modified so that it can work for all DMK cameras? i.e. just specify 199e and try to push whatever product id in the command?

TIS as a repo with udev for other camera, but it rely on a binary extension loader:
github.com/TheImagingSource/tiscamera/tree/master/data/udev

Not sure if this concern any camera used for astronomy.
They also have instruction for installation on Linux. Maybe the doc can link to this page:
