This evening, Gautam helped me resolve the error I had been encountering. I had been trying to run the code on Allegra and that threw up the gst.elementfactory_make(“textoverlay”, “text0”); gst.ElementNotFoundError: textoverlay error.
As an attempt to resolve the error, I had set up the paths to match those mentioned in the document.
However as it turns out, it wasn't really needed.
When Gautam ran the code from Pianosa, the following error showed up
gst.elementfactory_make(“x264enc”, “ en ”);gst.ElementNotFoundError: x264.
We found that the x264 and x264enc are different entities.
Gautam then installed the Ubuntu- restricted-extras package with the following
And eventually on compilation, the message ‘starting server’ was displayed on the screen. This was interrupted by another error GenICAM_3_0_Basler_pylon_v5_0::RuntimeException’
So there is apparently a problem executing the commands on Allegra, because the camera server starts running on Donatella and Pianosa.
I will now be looking into this newly encountered error and also be setting up the symlinks for the various paths in the code.
Probably I could try putting all files in exactly the same directories as specified in the document.
So with the file linked, the python program gets executed but then shows an error self.text= gst.elementfactory_make(“textoverlay”, “text0”)
The code reads-
Not sure what I am missing here.
