No Images from CSI cam on jetson nano

Hi
For the past days i have tried to get Images from the CSI cam on my jetson Nano 4gb(that i run with docker) with no luck.
I have tried nvargus-daemon with this result:

root@17aea94:/usr/src/app# nvargus-daemon
nvbuf_utils: Could not get EGL display connection
=== NVIDIA Libargus Camera Service (0.97.3)=== Listening for connections…
and then nothing was happening

the Camera is working on my jetson nano 2gb without docker with gstreamer

root@17aea94:/usr/src/app# v4l2-ctl --list-devices
vi-output, imx219 8-0010 (platform:54080000.vi:4):
/dev/video0

root@17aea94:/usr/src/app# v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video0 --list-formats
ioctl: VIDIOC_ENUM_FMT
Index : 0
Type : Video Capture
Pixel Format: ‘RG10’
Name : 10-bit Bayer RGRG/GBGB
with that I suppose the cam is detected

the code I am trying to run is following:

def gstreamer_pipeline(
capture_width=1280,
capture_height=720,
display_width=1280,
display_height=720,
framerate=60,
flip_method=0,
):
return (
"nvarguscamerasrc ! "
"video/x-raw(memory:NVMM), "
"width=(int)%d, height=(int)%d, "
"format=(string)NV12, framerate=(fraction)%d/1 ! "
"nvvidconv flip-method=%d ! "
"video/x-raw, width=(int)%d, height=(int)%d, format=(string)BGRx ! "
"videoconvert ! "
“video/x-raw, format=(string)BGR ! appsink”
% (
capture_width,
capture_height,
framerate,
flip_method,
display_width,
display_height,
)
)
cap = cv2.VideoCapture(gstreamer_pipeline(flip_method=0, framerate=15), cv2.CAP_GSTREAMER)

ret_val, img = self.cap.read()
print(img)

Thank you in advance

Try running the nvargus-daemon process as a background task, so that it remains active:

nvargus-daemon &

Then try to run your application. See if that helps.

Alternatively, you can start from this sample repo, which might help as well: GitHub - balena-io-examples/jetson-examples: Sample applications for the Jetson Nano, TX2, Xavier AGX and Xavier NX platforms

I tried what you suggested and this is what happend

Okay after a restart of the device something else happend:

Okay i solved it i needed to install gstreamer before building opencv in my dockerfile
