How to work with the Bumblebee2 Stereo Camera on Linux

This page contains instructions on how to setup the Bumblebee2 stereo camera on Linux. It also contains examples on how to use the camera.

Note: This page is work-in-progress so you really shouldn't trust anything you read here.

Installation

This guide has been tested on Fedora Core 10. It might work on other platforms, but it has not been verified. We require that you have libdc1394 version 2.0.2 installed, including developer files. You should note that this guide is intended for administrators, and not users. If you just want to use the camera you do not need to go through these steps.

1. Install Triclops

The first step is to install Triclops, which is the propitiatory library developed by Point Grey. You'll need the Triclops3.2.0.8-FC3.tgz file which is distributed by Point Grey to do this (if you don't have this file, then you shouldn't be performing these steps). Uncompress this file by typing

tar -zxvf Triclops3.2.0.8-FC3.tgz

This will produce a directory called Triclops3.2.0.8-FC3.
