How do I get my webcam to work with Skype / Camorama / Cheese / Other?
It's just blank. The camera doesn't turn on. Etc.Maybe the driver library isn't linking or linking right. Try making an executable file with something like this in it:
LD_PRELOAD causes the listed library to be loaded before any other library, in this case essentially forcing it into memory [that's not a great way to put it, but I like it .... using the force].
Don't forget to chmod +x the file. Then run the script.
Note that my Logitech camera displays funny in Camorama in any case, but this fixed my no-video problem with Skype and with Cheese.
