I am using Linux Mint 11 Katya, 64 bit. This has been asked before, but things may have changed since the last time this has been asked, and the answers to this question have not been helpful for my situation. I am simply trying to have a webcam chat using Kopete(Version 1.0.80) with friends who use Yahoo Messenger. I can chat with no problem, webcam works fine with Cheese and in the Kopete Configure screen, but I can't use my webcam or see my friend's cam. Every time I try to use the cam, I get this message: "Unable to find the Jasper image conversion program.
Jasper is required to render Yahoo webcam images.
Please see http://wiki.kde.org/tiki-index.php?page ... %20Support
for further information."
I tried getting this Japser Program many times, by doing this in terminal: "sudo apt-get install jasper libjasper-java libjasper-runtime libjasper-dev libjasper1"..
It looks like it may not be installing properly, since in terminal, I get this info after trying to install Jasper: "Reading package lists... Done

Setting up polipo (184.108.40.206-1.1) ...
Starting polipo: Couldn't open config file /etc/polipo/config: 2.

Is Polipo interfering with Jasper? Or is something else interfering? My webcam works fine with Cheese, and I can even see my ugly face through the cam just fine in the configure section of Kopete. What can I do, and would upgrading to the latest version of Linux Mint Lisa help resolve it? Thanks.
