Remote Control camera with gphoto2
I am still struggeling with the easiest things so i would say i am a total noob.
I want to remote control a camera and for that i found gphoto as a known solution.
Unfortunately the different approaches how to install it on my onion failed.
It resulted in a) libjpeg62.so not found (because on onion 9-1a is preinstalled) and b) when downgrading to libjpeg62 gphoto failed because of other missing dependencies
Anybody can help me installing gphoto2?
I will start a three months road trip and want to mount camera in front to take a photo when car is in motion every minute - should become a video with moving curso on a map... for the map the gps module is missing. But lets start with the photos ;)

This is surely not the best way to do it and maybe will make me stuck later - but for now gphoto works by:
- installing from http://www.ibuyopenwrt.com/index.php/8-yun-compatible/77-gphoto2-2-5-2
- symlink /usr/lib/libjpeg.so.62 -> /usr/lib/libjpeg.so.9
- symlink /usr/lib/libreadline.so.5 -> /usr/lib/libreadline.so.6
@Benjamin-Rau I can understand why you might have concerns about using the symlinks you indicate - however, it looks like you are linking to later versions of the libraries so there is probably a good chance you will be OK.
One thing you will need to look out for is that you will almost certainly loose these symlinks as and when you do any upgrade of your Omega using oupgrade, so record what they are so you can re-instate them if you need to,
@Kit-Bishop Thanks for your feedback and thoughts... also thanks for making me aware of the update thing... i am pretty sure i would have searched a long time then ;)
Today i will try to get some older camera from ebay, then i will try to use gphoto2 on my onion.
Just do conclude this: gphoto2 works pretty well with the Onion and the Canon G10.
If you can remove this manual fix please notify me :wink:
@pma61 Thanks for your effords. Installing from your apk files results in:
/bin/ash: gphoto2 not found
@Benjamin-Rau gphoto2 should be in /usr/bin/, check your PATH environment
Hej, thanks for sharing the packages!
Unfortunately I get the same error as @Benjamin-Rau
root@Omega-192C:~# ls /usr/bin/gphoto2 /usr/bin/gphoto2 root@Omega-192C:~# /usr/bin/gphoto2 /bin/ash: /usr/bin/gphoto2: not found
@lichtteil have you checked program permissions?
