Whenever I try uploading a code to run my camera it says camera not enabled , therefore I activated my camera from the rasberrypi configurator which did not work as well , also updated camera using sudo apt get-upgrade / update . After all those steps the camera still seeems to not be seen as enabled from the Raspberry Pi I also tried the command sudo apt raspi-config and the option of enabling the camera was not there. I am truly out of options.

Does anyone have a solution to this or know what might be the problem ? Thank you

  • Check the ribbon cable is the correct way around and isn't damaged, then check them again. They have to be say in perfectly. Nov 19, 2017 at 20:05

The command line command is not:

sudo apt raspi-config 

it is:

sudo raspi-config.

The option to enable the camera is under interfacing options.

You should also reboot after enabling the camera.
