I am trying to get a camera driver(any camera driver working) on a RADXA Rock board. Ubuntu raring - cheese works, but I can't get any ROS driver to make or work.

roslaunch uvc_camera uvc_camera.launch device:=/dev/video0

rosrun uvc_camera uvc_camera_node

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error' what(): couldn't query control

This is the catkin_make on the git clone of libuvc_camera.

-- +++ processing catkin package: 'libuvc_camera' -- ==> add_subdirectory(libuvc_ros/libuvc_camera) CMake Error at libuvc_ros/libuvc_camera/CMakeLists.txt:9 (find_package): By not providing "Findlibuvc.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this project has asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by "libuvc", but CMake did not find one.

Could not find a package configuration file provided by "libuvc" with any of the following names:


Add the installation prefix of "libuvc" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set "libuvc_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files. If "libuvc" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been installed.

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred! Invoking "cmake" failed

this is the src directory:

rock@radxa:~/catkin_ws/src$ ls CMakeLists.txt driver_common image_common common_msgs dynamic_reconfigure libuvc_ros

Thanks This should be easier than playing 'driver roulette.'

The libuvc_camera package is available as part of the Hydro builds for ARM. you should be able to install it with:

sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-libuvc-camera

For reference, the complete list of packages available for Hydro on ARM is available on the status page
