Need help connecting R200 to Aero Compute (Ubuntu)

Jump to solution

Hello everyone,

I'm working with an Aero compute board on the Intel aero drone platform. I am not able to detect the R200, or any of the other cameras in the vision accessory kit on Ubuntu 16.04 installation even after installing librealsense library and installing the ubuntu xenial patch. The patch successfully installs but I get no devices as /dev/video on ubuntu. Is there anything that needs to be enabled in order for the same?

Thanks in advance.

Siddharth

The Aero Compute Board and Vision Kit are intended to be used with a branch of Linux called Yocto Project. An Intel article on streaming data on the board via wi-fi says "The Intel Aero Compute Board uses a customized version of Yocto Linux. Plans are being considered to provide Ubuntu in the future."

I have already tried Yocto but was facing issues cross-compiling a few packages on my laptop, and that's why I switched to Ubuntu. Are you saying that my camera won't work on Ubuntu? This is sad.

A couple of days later, the same author wrote a guide about developing Aero apps on Ubuntu on his full PC (Ubuntu is his preference too) and migrating the source code onto the Aero board via wi-fi.
