    Problem with Acer Crystal Eye webcam

    Okay I somehow solved this, rebooted and now everything works. Lol, reminds me of wind0ze. Anyway sorry for posting this here.

    Hello, I am having problems using my Laptop's webcam. I am using Linux Mint 7(Ubuntu 9.04), my laptop is Acer Aspire 2920Z. The camera is not starting on both Cheese and Skype. What happens is I just see a throbber in Cheese, and nothing else happens. I tried to see if the cam works in Ubuntu 9.10 so I booted from a live CD and installed Cheese, but still the same issue.

    However when I tried to boot the laptop with Ubuntu 8.10 Live CD, the webcam seemed to work both in Cheese and Skype!

    When I type "lsusb" to the terminal on my current installation of Linux Mint 7, I can see "Bus 001 Device 003: ID 5986:0102 Acer, Inc Crystal Eye webcam"
