Cheese starts in berserk burst mode

Post by Matera » Sat Apr 07, 2018 4:34 pm

I use Cheese to check a webcam in a window that I can't see out of easily. But every time I open it, there is a 50% or better chance that it will immediately start taking photos in burst mode.

I'm using a perectly normal launcher to start it. The same thing happens with different computers, and I've changed keyboards a few times too with no effect on Cheese's behavior. It's the same in a fresh install of 18.3 on a new drive as it was before. Yes, I've hunted down and destroyed configuration files too.

Searching this forum and the Internet hasn't turned up anything. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm close to giving up on Cheese, unless I can find some way to make it open without creating dozens of useless files.
When I have a computer problem, I call myself.
