    Ubuntu 12.04 Cheese Problem


    Cheese no longer activates my webcam in 12.04. I get the following message when I try to run Cheese from a terminal



    (cheese:9145): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to add a widget with type GtkImage to
    a GtkButton, but as a GtkBin subclass a GtkButton can only contain one widget at
    a time; it already contains a widget of type GtkLabel


    Similar programs to Cheese work fine, as does Skype, so its no big deal .. but I LIKE Cheese !!!

    Anybody know how to fidget with widgets ??

    Many Thanks

    Burke

    If me. I would completely remove cheese with apt-get then apt-get update next then reinstall cheese with apt-get.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get --purge remove cheese
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install cheese
    This may or may not work. And they say Ubuntu is a stable distro.

    I don't use cheese in AntiX. guvcview works for me just as fine as cheese.

    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/guvcview

    to find it in Ubuntu

    Code:
    apt-cache policy guvcview
    to install

    Code:
    apt-get install guvciew
    Happy trails, rok
