Cheese doesn't work anymore? [Solved]

Postby panzer on Sat Nov 27, 2010 1:26 pm


I'm using LMDE and I have installed program "Cheese" for my webcam.
When I launch it, I see only a black screen.
Was working before. The webcam is detected in my system:

Any idea?

EDIT: NerverMind. I don't know how, but it works now :!:

Linux/Unix is about freedom, Windows about slavery.
