View Full Version : Very low frame rate on webcam

I was recently forced to reinstall ubuntu after following some advice on how to get the hibernate function working on my Acer Aspire One ZA 3. The last time I installed ubuntu, cheese worked fine as soon as I got the correct screen resolution working and installed all of the available gstreamer plugins. Now, that doesn't seem to be enough. Here is what my xorg.conf file looks like if it's of any relevance:

# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
# Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously
# in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings
# here are ignored.
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
