debian - gtkam - no camera detected


Hi...

I'm under debian testing, and i've tried to plug my camera on the usb port... i works fine on ubuntu, but on debian i got some problem...

it recognizes the camera:

But just for 1 second and then nothing:

So when i launch gtkam and try to auto-detect it, it just says "no camera detected."

Any idea ?

Try using gtkam as root. I have to do that in slackware.

Here is the link for the debian post:

It works as root, but even better, when you add yourself in the camera group, it works also as a normal user!
but gtkam doesn't launch automagically
