Thanks for your help!
I am using the 32 bit version. At least this is what the command getconf LONG_BIT tells me.
I tried to replace the fixup.dat and start_x.elf on the sd card with the mate image
but then I cannot boot into the desktop. Copying only start_x.elf did not help either. By the way, can someone please provide a good (short) resource what these files contain an do?
I copied the files from the latest raspbian image (2018-04-18-raspbian-stretch). The camera works when I use this (supported) image file.
Is there another file I have to copy in order to get the camera working with the ubuntu mate image? Maybe some files from /lib/firmware?
I can confirm that the camera v2 works with the ubuntu mate image. Instead of copying from the mate image, you should copy fixup.dat and start_x.elf from the latest raspbian image. It works perfectly.
I did not copy from the mate image. As you marked in bold, I replaced fixup.dat and start_x.elf ON
the sd card image, which I downloaded from this thread, with the files from the latest raspbian image 2018-04-18-raspbian-stretch.img. And I also tried with the files from 2018-04-18-raspbian-stretch-lite.img but both times without success.
However, I have to admit that I get further than the rainbow screen... Now I see the plymouth splash screen but then all turns black and stays black
I can confirm that the camera v2 works with the ubuntu mate image.
Dont you have an updated and working image in this case?
