Thank you for help

:+1: Welcome to Manjaro! :+1:

  1. Please read this:
    How to provide good information
    and press the three dots below your post and press the :pencil2: to give us more information so we can see what’s really going on.
    Now we know the symptom of the disease, but we need some more probing to know where the origin lies… :grin:
  2. An inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width would be the minimum required information for us to be able to help you. (Personally Identifiable Information like serial numbers and MAC addresses will be filtered out by the above command)
    Also, please copy-paste that output in-between 3 backticks ``` at the beginning and end of the code/text.

@Fabby i am confusing because my question is very clear, to use sony camera on win10 / macosx must to use a software “Imaging edge mobile”, this software not compatible for linux, raison for that i ask if there is another way !

No it’s not:

It doesn’t work under Linux, so we don’t know what it does so we cannot recommend any software… What are your requirements for camera software?

The camera is recognized is all we can tell you:

And now at least we can see you’re running Gnome:

so I’ve reclassified your question to the Gnome support (as I’m on KDE and cannot help you any further, except that “Cheese” is the standard Gnome camera software IIRC).

:bowing_man:

@Fabby it s ok if not understand the question, i found a solution with diffirent way and now camera Sony work correctly as webcam with manjaro, thank you for your time.

And the soliution is? Or you intend to keep it for yourself?

    so that the next person that has the exact same problem you just had will benefit from your post as your question will now be in the “solved” status.

:crossed_fingers:

i enable option on camera setting so it s not related to archlinux
