Camera not working Nexus 4
I just loaded Touch on Nexus 4 and when I open the camera the screen is just black Ubuntu 16.04 (OTA-15)

I moved this topic to the Nexus4 subforum.
The camera works on Nexus5 at least so it must be hardware related.
There is also another thread open on this topic for another device:
Sadly I think the camera app is not maintained anymore.
A call for dev has been made.
If someone has the mean and will to step in, be welcome.
If the issue doesn't exist, you can open a new one else you can comment so the list of devices that don't work is known. It can help to find the root cause.

@moggy For any one else, this is quite common, reboot the phone and try again. It should ask you for permission to use the camera, allow and it will work. If it doesn't reboot the operating system and try again. On all the phones I have installed Ubuntu touch on, reboot and the camera works.
I just want to add my experience, since I posted about this in Reddit. I'm running on the developer channel, in case that is relevant. The camera works for me. Video recording works, too, although there is no sound.
