Unknown provider: $cordovaCameraProvider

It looks like there is something wrong with the cordova-plugin-camera.

After adding the plugin via:

ionic plugin add cordova-plugin-camera

and adding the $cordovaCamera dependency to my controller:

.controller('CameraCtrl', function($scope, $cordovaCamera){

I get the following error:

0     977452   error    Error: [$injector:unpr] Unknown provider: $cordovaCameraProvider <- $cordovaCamera <- CameraCtrl

I’ve noticed that the camera obj is added to the global navigator so I guess the plugin is really installed but I dont know what’s going on.

Same result under ionic 1.2.4, ionic 1.1.1 (though it seems is something related to the plugin itself and not ionic).

Any help?

i’m also seeing the same issue.

you can try cordova capture as alternative/workaround

I’m having the same issue and none of these replies are being helpful

because cordova-plugin-camera is a part of ngCordova, then have to install ngCordova firstly and add it to dependency injection: http://ngcordova.com/docs/install/

Then your code will run.
