Vive Pro Camera USB error and fix

Symptom: Cameras on the Vive Pro fail to show up in the SteamVR settings and produce a red X and a USB error message. They were working fine but a Steam update may have caused the problem.

 

After spending hours on the forums and uninstalling/reinstalling Vive and Steam drivers, checking device manager for USBs, and thinking I would never get the cameras back again I found a solution on a Steam Linux GitHub post - https://github.com/ValveSoftware/SteamVR-for-Linux/issues/169 .

 

It appears the issue is with the steamvr.vrsettings JSON file not having a camera entry like so:

 

"camera" : {
"enableCamera" : true,
"enableCameraForCollisionBounds" : false,
"enableCameraForRoomView" : false,
"enableCameraInDashboard" : false
}

 

The JSON file can be found in something like C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam|config\steamvr.vrsettings . Add the JSON above and it will magically come back. 

 

Hope this helps someone from spending the hours I did chasing all the crazy suggestions on the forum.
