hp webcam sparky 5.10.1
« on: February 17, 2020, 02:55:49 am »
good day
i have installed sparky 5.10.1 on a hp laptop, everything went well except
the web-cam doesn't work. i booted into live sparky gameover and the web-cam worked.
sparky 5.10.1 uses qcamera where sparky gameover uses Camorama, Camorama is in
the repos, when i try to install it has unresolved dependencies (libgnomeui-0 (>=2.22.0) but it is not installable)
what can i do ?

You can also install and try 'cheese' instead.
