Hallo Everyone,

I have installed Lubuntu on a new laptop with a Chicony USB webcam. Everything seems fine and the webcam seems to be recognised (both in the hardware profiler and in GUVCView), the settings seem fine and when I open the viewer the little red light comes on.

But the problem is that the screen remains black.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is it a real problem or is there somewhere an "on switch" which will make the picture appear and which I have overlooked?

Regards and thanks,
