vcgencmd and libraspberrypi
  • Add the ppa for it: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-raspi2/ppa
  • Edit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubuntu-raspi2-ubuntu-ppa-eoan.list. Change eoan to bionic, because bionic is the latest supported release.
  • Do sudo apt update
  • Do sudo apt install libraspberrypi-bin

This will install vcgencmd.

This can be easily automated using ansible:

{% highlight yaml %}


  • name: Set up the ppa for vcgencmd become: true apt_repository: repo: ppa:ubuntu-raspi2/ppa codename: bionic

  • name: Install ubuntu raspberry pi support library apt: name: libraspberrypi-bin {% endhighlight %}
