GYachE Installation


Hi,

Iḿ using Linux Mint and downloaded GYachE (gyachi_1.1.0-1_i386_gutsy.deb), but when I load this file to install the application, it starts but ends with the status error:

Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libltdl3 (>= 1.5.2-2)

I can even click on the "Install Package" - it's greyed out.

Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions.

What version of Mint are you using? The package you mention is for Ubuntu Gutsy, which was the base for Linux Mint 4. If you're using the latest Mint 8, you need a package for Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic. Which you can get here.

hey Reed9, it worked. Thanks so much.

I haven actually done any chat as yet, but it successfully installed, loaded and connected.
However, when I started cam and tried to do the settings, the cam window suddenly closed and thereafter if Iḿ trying to start cam, it doesn't. Instead 4 error windows open with the messages:
- Could not open Video4Linux device. The device may already be in use.
- Error getting picture information
- Could not open Video4Linux device. The device may already be in use.
- An error occurred at 'ioctl VIDIOSPICT'. Could not set camera properties.

Any idea?

Hmm. I don't use gyachi or webcames, so I have only a vague idea.

From what I can find, it looks like the problem may be that your webcam uses a V4L2 driver, and Gyachi only supports V4L1. There is possible workaround by installing some software from the Flashcam Project.

That project seems a little old, however, and I really have no idea whether it will work. Based on my reading of their site, this seems like what you need to do.
Code:
sudo apt-get install build-essential checkinstall linux-headers-$(uname -r)
wget http://www.swift-tools.net/Flashcam/flashcam-1.4.4.tgz
tar xvf flashcam-1.4.4.tgz
cd flashcam-1.4.4
make
sudo checkinstall
sudo flashcam -L
sudo chmod o+rw /dev/video*
echo "PATH=/usr/local/flashcam/bin:$PATH" >> ~/.bashrc
sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/flashcamwrap gyachi
Log out and back in or restart.

What this is doing in order is:
Install the necessary build tools and kernel headers;
Download the source code
Extract the code;
Enter the build directory;
Build;
Install;
Test flashcam;
Change permissions on the video devices so that everyone has read/write access. #Not really sure if this is necessary;
Add the flashcam binary to your PATH;
Create a symbolic link between flashcam and gyachi.

hello Reed9,
I did as you said, but I think there have been a few problems along the way. I've not yet rebooted the comp to see if it works (I'll reboot after posting this reply), but here's a copy of the whole process from the terminal window:
