dmesg and fshw in a file
Description of problem:
Since I upgrade from Fedora 16 to Fedora 17, Fedora doesn't detect the webcam, it's working perfectly in Fedora 16. A clean reinstall of the O.S. don't solve the problem.
Always, running cheese, camorama, empathy, google's hangouts, none of them works because don't detect the webcam,
It works perfectly on Fedora 16 and Windows 7, don't know if more information is needed, if it's, ask me.
I have been having problems with the cam in others OS I think it's a hardware problem which has coincided with the upgrade.Thank you. Sorry for the inconvenience. If no one else report this bug, could close.
Hello Brakia. I had the same problem with my webcam. I recently move from Ubuntu 12.04, where my Logitech C310 worked perfectly. I solved this problem by adding my user to the group video:
sudo usermod --append --groups video <user_name>
At least, this is how I got Cheese working.
