I've been trying to enable the raspberry pi camera on my new pi 3B with no success.

I've tried updating. I tried raspi-config on the commandline, enabled the camera and rebooted. These did not work.

When I open the gui configurations window in: Preferences > Raspberry Pi Configuration > Interfaces. The camera option is NOT available.

I've also verified that the camera works, by checking on an older pi3

Output of "cat /etc/os-release":

PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 11 (bullseye)" NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux" VERSION_ID="11" VERSION="11 (bullseye)" VERSION_CODENAME=bullseye ID=raspbian ID_LIKE=debian HOME_URL="http://www.raspbian.org/" SUPPORT_URL="http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianForums" BUG_REPORT_URL="http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianBugs"

Can someone assist.

  • Which OS are you using? The very latest Raspberry Pi OS Bullseye has camera issues.

  • Does 'cat /etc/os-release' return buster or bullseye? Edit your question with this info.

  • You are using bullseye, edit your question. You may find it easiest to go back to buster. forums.raspberrypi.com/viewtopic.php?t=323390
