    webcam not working in 10.4

    hello all,

    the webcam does not work with 10,4. i tried using skype and then even tried the following on the terminal window:
    "rahul@rahul-desktop:~$ gstreamer-properties
    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'artsdsink'
    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'esdsink'

    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'v4lmjpegsrc'
    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'qcamsrc'

    system error: No space left on device]
    "
    Any idea on how to solve these errors and get the webcam working?

    Thanks in advance.

    I am also facing the same problem. On (gstreamer-properties), I receive error "Video for Linux (v4l): Device "/dev/video0" does not exist.". I have tried all possible solutions. It seems my webcam which is being detected on lsusb, is not supported by Ubuntu 10.04.
    "Bus 004 Device 003: ID 093a:2462 Pixart Imaging, Inc. " Or is a bug with my settings? Can anyone help?
