View Full Version : [ubuntu] Webcam issues in 12.04 LTS

June 1st, 2012, 07:53 AM

I have recently moved to 12.04 LTS on my desktop and laptop.

I am experiencing problems with the webcam on the desktop (I use Advent USB CAMs which work fine).

My problem is this, I have skype, Cheese, Kamoso and Camorama installed on each machine.

The laptop has assigned the webcam as dev/video0 the desktop has assigned the webcam as dev/video1

The above apps all work perfectly on the laptop however on the desktop Cheese and Camorama don't work (Skype and Cheese do, go figure?)

My question is there anyway via the command line to edit the two apps to look at dev/video1 as I cannot get the apps to start (cause the system to completely crash) which will hopefully solve the issue.

Any ideas would be much appreciated
