program camorama issues an error "failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"


Hello everyone,
I installed Linux on VirtualBox. I can connect to my webcam via program "camorama", and I can capture pictures and store them in local directory. However, when the program starts is issues this error message:
Failed to load module "Canberra-gtk-module"
and the program continues in spite of the above error and I can indeed take pictures and store them in my local directory.

I'm not sure what to load/configure to get rid of this message.
your help is much appreciated.
Sincerely,
hawanam


(PS: I tried to work around the problem by using a different program called "cheese", but that was hopeless, in that the cheese could not find the device at all).

search your package manager for "canberra", i'm sure you'll find what you need to install.

which distro do you use?

maybe
Code:
apt search canberra

Canberra is for program sounds, like beeps. If you don't need that, just leave it.

thank you Ondoho for the hint you provided. Unfortunately, that command did not give me info on the issue I'm facing rather it showed me what packages are in my environment.

Also, thank you to "AwesomeMachine" for describing the purpose of the module, which made understand that

Solution:
However, I did another google search and found this command to install the missing link:
sudo apt-get install libcanberra-gtk-module

Once I installed this library, The error now gone. This problem is resolved. Thank you,
