Hopefully a simple answer, but can't find a solution searching.
Trying to run a Logitech Quickcam Express webcam, and works perfectly if you: sudo cheese for example, but won't work as a standard user.
Assuming that it is a "group" thing...?
Thanks, John.

Ubuntu 10.10 x86

Worked it out: sudo chmod 777 /dev/video0
