(SOLVED) Cheese...

Post by tenfoot » Sat May 07, 2011 3:12 pm

For some reason a recent update has led to Cheese vanishing from the Package Manager!

I have the Cheese icon on my Panel and the first indication I had that something was wrong is when I tried to launch it and nothing happened. At that point I checked the Package Manager - Installed applications - and tried to mark it for installation but that option was greyed out. As Remove application was available, I chose that option, with the intention of then rinstalling it. However, clicking on Cheese, I found the Install option greyed out.

Nothing loth, I then decided to install through the Software Manager but to my horror, searching for Cheese did not find it.

Going to the Debian site, I looked for Cheese but hesitated to go further as there were so many dependicies required.

Is anyone able to assist me to find and install Chees, please? Alternative, is there another "Cheese" type application I can uses instead?

Edited: 8.07 a.m. Sunday 08 May 2011.

Checked the Software Manager again and, lo and behold, Cheese is there! Installed it and the icon apears in the Mint Menu. Launched it and got the error message:

Code: Select all

One or more needed GStreamer elements are missing: gconfaudiosrc, gconfvideosink.
Looking at the Help section, I ran sudo gstreamer-properties and got the following output

Code: Select all

zed@zed ~ $ sudo gstreamer-properties
[sudo] password for zed: 
gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'artsdsink'
gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'glimagesink'
gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'sdlvideosink'
gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'v4lmjpegsrc'
gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'qcamsrc'
gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'v4lsrc'
gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'esdmon'
I will be searching for the missing plugins but in the meantime, any help will be very much appreciated.

Later same morning

Once I'd got my head sorted and entered the correct search term, I found the missing plugin and installed it. All is now well and Cheese is active.

My apologies for wasting your time!

I had the missing plugins problem, I solved it by installing gstreamer0.10-gconf

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-gconf

Yes, that's what I did. I should have put that in my previous post.

Yep, had the same problem with the sound recorder, and solved it the same way. Posted on debian forums:

I'm getting the same error message when I 'mess' with my Video settings trying to "un-blue" YouTube, and similar videos. I'm hoping this will fix that, too!

More to follow...

Well, that didn't go well....

Wha? You aren't using LMDE, you're using one of the main editions aren't you?

Anywho...

Have you checked this out?

I rolled my NVIDIA driver back to Version 173, and skin tones are normal again.


Thanks for all assistance
