On my Pangolin 7 Cheese and Camorama cannot find the camera

Asked by Andrew Hamblin

When trying to launch either Cheese of Camorama they crash and say they cannot find the camera.

When I check the "install drivers" in admin, it says that all drivers are provided by Ubuntu.

What do I need to install, or what information would be useful in debugging this issue.

Thanks for the question. Please close all applications that use the webcam, then press Fn+F10 to turn the camera on. Then, try opening Cheese again. Did that help?
