This issue was resolved in Mugshot 0.3.2 and should still be working correctly in 0.4.0.

02 Nov 2016, Mugshot 0.3.2

- New bugfix release
  . Mugshot's camera dialog is fixed and should work on all previously
    supported and current systems!


mugshot (0.3.2-0ubuntu1) zesty; urgency=medium

  * New upstream bugfix release.
  * debian/control:
    - Bump Standards Version to 3.9.8
    - Add gstreamer1.0-tools to Recommends
