Bug Description

I get a glimpse at the layout of Cheese, then it crashes. The webcam signal blinks once (it turns blue when active). This happens sometimes after waking up from suspending.

The "Webcam" item is not shown in the device menu as it was in Ubuntu 11.10.

The webcam worked fine with Cheese in Ubuntu 11.10.

We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to review all reported bugs in a timely manner. You reported this bug some time ago and there have been many changes in Ubuntu since that time.

Ubuntu 12.04 (precise) reached end-of-life on April 28, 2017.

Do you still see a problem related to the one that you reported in a currently supported version of Ubuntu? Please let us know if you do and in which version of Ubuntu otherwise this report can be left to expire in approximately 60 days time.

Thank you for helping make Ubuntu better.
