WEBCAM: Stickam shows black screen when Cheese shows cam


Is it possible to get stickam to work with Linux? I'm running Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon. I tried something someone suggested on the Ubuntu forum ,but the only problem is my cam is not located at /dev/vid0. How can I check where the cam is located? If you know of a way to get this working I'd appreciate the help.

Thanks.

It's not.

Cheese detects it, but camorama doesn't.

Look at dmesg when you unplug then plug the cam. Here you can see that I removed the module to force it to /dev/Video0
you will need to be root ...

Glad to here it.

Unfortunately, that doesn't help me much...

It's because with linux you are unable to go to settings on their webpage. But you can change the global settings at adobes website

Took me a life time to figure it out but works like a charm now
