Hey guys ,

I've installed 11.04 on my Asus G1s fine, runs wonderfully I might add but the webcam doesn't seem to work quite right on some applications.

lsusb indicates it is:
"Syntek Sonix 1.3mpixel usb 2.0 camera" (ID 174f:5a35)

If anyone else is having the issue with the camera being upside down, there's several threads that fixed it for me:
ie: http://techspalace.blogspot.com/2010/02/upside-down-web-cam-simple-fix.html

I'm still having a few issues with some applications, in particular Cheese which works for a little bit and then crashes by fault of a "Segmentation error".

Does anybody know how to fix this?
