Camera not working with Cheese
#1
I tried Cheese and my webcam is not recognized. Here's the output of starting Cheese from the command line:

Code:
[cypress@pinebook ~]$ cheese

Tried disabling privacy through the privacy switch then turning it back on again. Rebooted - same issue.
Any ideas?

Hello, you should follow these steps to solve your problem:
1. Update packages: Make sure your system is up to date by running the following commands:


Code:
bash
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

2. Install missing codecs: Cheese may require additional codecs to work properly. Install the necessary GStreamer plugins by running:


Code:
bash
sudo apt install gstreamer1.0-plugins-good gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly

3. Check video device permissions: Ensure that your user has the necessary permissions to access the video devices. Add your user to the video group by running:


Code:
bash
sudo usermod -aG video $USER

4. Verify video device settings: Check if the video device settings are correct. Run the following command to list the device settings:


Code:
bash
v4l2-ctl --list-formats-ext -d /dev/video1

Replace /dev/video1 with the appropriate device if needed. Make sure that the listed formats are supported by the webcam.

5. Try a different application: Test your webcam with another application to see if the issue is specific to Cheese. You can try using VLC media player or another webcam application to check if the webcam is recognized and working properly.

6. Reinstall Cheese: If none of the above steps work, consider reinstalling Cheese. First, remove the existing installation:


Code:
bash
sudo apt remove cheese

Then, install it again:


Code:
bash
sudo apt install cheese
