Well that is not totally true it works when I am in the configure mode of Kopete and YouTube but when it is time to use it then it doesn't work at all. It works in Cheese. I suppose the microphone isn't working either. It doesn't work at all in Ekiga.
In Canorama I get the "Could Not connect to video device (/dev/video0) Please check connection" error.
Now what I think is going on here is this. I think that there are two drivers doing the same thing. I see the uvcvideo thing and also the video4linux thing I don't know what to grep in lsmod otherwise I would post it here or ls-whatever.
In the KDE-Hal-Device Manager (which is really only a viewer because you can't do anything with the Devices) I see two Chicony USB 2.0 Cameras. There is also two USB video interface nodes one with the two Chicony cameras in it and one without anything in it.
Chicony A. Has:
linux.sysfs_path=/sys/devices/pci000.... blah blah blah
Then I tried Gstreamer properties and I noticed that the default camera was on v4l2 and the chicony camera was on v4l1 So I am assuming that there is a nasty configuration mess up somewhere. I assume I have to delete either the v4l2 or v4l1 drivers because there seems to be some kind of mix up.
Is there anyone who knows all of the terminal stuff that I need to do to work through this problem? I have a Toshiba P205D-7454 AMD Turion 64 with ATI graphics card. 4Gigs of ram I don't know what else is pertinent for this problem. Running Kubuntu 8.10.
