Acer Crystal Eye doesn't work

Asked by Icia on 2009-10-07

In Jaunty, my webcam doesn't work with Cheese : has a bunch of colored blocks like a TV screen test
with Skype: recognizes Webcam but displays no image when test is clicked.

In Stickam, Meebo, and Tinychat, It also doesn't work.

Output of lsusb:

I am using an Acer Aspire One d250 running the Ubuntu netbook remix.

After going to the global flash settings and enabling all websites to use my webcam, and restarting, the problem fixed itself.
