Okay guys, sorry if this is a copy-pasta thread, I don't mean it to be.

Quick synopsis: I'll start my webcam and it'll work [after booting]... but only for one try. If I stop using my webcam for any reason and try to start it back, i'll get something like 'device not connected' or i'll see a bunch of scrambled color bars.

Are there any Drivers out there for 9.04 webcams? I've done my searching but cannot find any.

My machine is a Toshiba Satellite x-205 S7483, webcam is built in.

Please assume that i'm a n00b that can use a terminal.

Thanks in advance!!!

Also, I installed Camorama and it said:


Could not connect to video device (/dev/video0)
Please check connection.
