View Full Version : [kubuntu] Cheese not working in Kubuntu - Any solution or alternative?

September 17th, 2009, 01:04 PM
Hello all,

I would like to take picture, and perhaps even record video, through my webcam. I'm running Kubuntu 9.04. I tried installing Cheese from Adept and I also found a separate package, the results are identical.

My webcam is found yet nothing happens except a loading icon (circle going round and round) and I can neither take pictures nor video through Cheese. I tried taking a picture and I get a countdown and a flash but nothing happens.

Any help? I'd appreciate an alternative for Cheese, the important for me is taking pictures with my webcam.

Webcam works fine with Skype by the way.
