    Cheese WebCam Booth - No Menu Bar

    I was trying to change a setting in Cheese and looking online people said, "click preferences". I did a quick image search and realized that other cheese users have a menu bar! I don't... (see screenshot). Any insight on how to regain a menu so I can look at prefernces and such? I already uninstalled, pured and reinstalled. Thanks!Screenshot from 2013-09-26 12:42:37.png

    What Desktop Enviroment are you using? (Unity, KDE, MATE, LXDE. etc)

    I'm assuming Unity.

    Thanks Caboose,

    Yes, I'm using Unity. But I have had the global menu bar disabled for a while (couple of years? really since it came into being). All other programs work fine, but not Cheese...Screenshot from 2013-09-26 21:50:39.jpg

    Ah that clears it up. I did the same thing to my test box and I do have the same issue as you now. You could try installing another webcam utility.

    GTK UVC Video Viewer should do the trick.

    If you are on Ubuntu 13.04 you can install it with the following command

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install guvcview

    Here is the launchpad page to the project.

    "guvcview" package: Ubuntu


    Hope that helps!

    PS You may wanna file a bug report with the Ubuntu devs to see if its something they might fix.

    Yeah I'm not sure what you could to fix cheese besides re-enabling the global menu bar or switching desktop enviroments.

    Hope you enjoy GTK UVC Video Viewer more!
