Good day,


I would like to use a CCD camera for image acquisition direct from octave. However, I cannot seem to connect to the camera as the following error below keeps coming up. I tried downloading the forge image-acquisition but it seems this will not work for windows. Do have anything that can work for windows 10 OS as I do not have access to a linux computer?


pkg install -forge image-acquisition

configure: error: unable to find the v4l2_open() function

configure: loading site script /usr/local/etc/

checking for g++... g++

checking for mkoctfile... yes

checking for fltk-config... /c/Octave/OCTAVE~1.0/mingw64/bin/fltk-config

checking for v4l2_open in -lv4l2... no


pkg: error running the configure script for image-acquisition.
