Cheese - Couldn't connect to accessibility bus

Postby SprinterDriver » Mon Sep 04, 2017 3:46 pm

Hi.

Have s little project that is to retreive images from a webcam (MS Lifecam studio). First I tried to use fswebcam to extract images, but it outputs too dark images to be of any use. I could not find any comand line parameters to fix that.

Then I installed Cheese via Software manager. But once I open Cheese - I got this error message:

Code: Select all

sprinterdriver@tiger-pc ~ $ cheese

** (cheese:9494): WARNING **: Couldn't connect to accessibility bus: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-G4tHZo2Btk: Connection refused
Segmentation fault


I tried to search on web, but I could not find any answers on what's wrong.

[edit 1]
I see there is more people out there that expreience the same issues with Cheese. I taught maybe that is because this old computer is just way too old, and also have to use forcepae.

[edit 2]
So therefore I tried to install Guvcview. That program too did fails miserably :x

Code: Select all

sprinterdriver@tiger-pc ~ $ guvcview
