Hi guys,

I normally stick to the forums but I've come here because I fear this is
going to be a little too in depth. (I shall post the answer to the forum
afterwards however).

I know the GEM developers have discussed this over here:

But I'm not a GEM developer! :)

My issue is, [pix_video] won't see my camera under any conditions (in
GNU/Linux), whilst mplayer tv:// in the terminal or the Cheese Webcam Booth
are both very happy to. I simply don't know where to begin. But really
really desire this feature (it's one of the main reasons i bought the eeepc

Running eeebuntu lxde beta 1 (a cut down ubuntu/debian)

Is this a common problem? Are there some standard procedures to fixing this?
like reinstalling certain packages? e.t.c.

There's no rush here, but I'm sure it's a somewhat popular issue since the
eeepc must be a popular medium for Pure Data

Thanks very much everyone.
