I am using a raspberry pi v2 camera on a raspberry pi 4 8GB RAM board. I am currently trying to connect to a project on edge impulse I built but when I try to connect the terminal says that no camera is detected.

output from the terminal:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ edge-impulse-linux
Edge Impulse Linux client v1.3.5

[SER] Using microphone hw:1,0
Failed to initialize linux tool Error: Cannot find any webcams, run this command with --disable-camera to skip selection
    at /usr/lib/node_modules/edge-impulse-linux/build/cli/linux/linux.js:435:23
    at processTicksAndRejections (internal/process/task_queues.js:97:5)
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ 

I have gone through several tutorials but none of them worked. any ideas?

try to do one of the following options:

if you have installed Raspbian with GUI:

  • start up your Raspberry Pi.
  • go to the main menu and open the Raspberry Pi Configuration tool;
  • select the Interfaces tab and ensure that the camera is enabled;
  • reboot your Raspberry Pi.


using the command line in terminal:

  • type sudo raspi-config;
  • use the cursor keys to select and open Interfacing Options;
  • select Camera and follow the prompt to enable the camera;
  • reboot your Raspberry Pi.
