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 ?


Hi. Open terminal. Run command qcamera. Post the result.

~$ qcamera
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 106, in <module>
    window = MainWindow()
  File "", line 33, in __init__
  File "", line 62, in select_camera = QCamera(self.available_cameras)
IndexError: list index out of range


when i first tried running qcamera in a terminal it informed me this package needed installed.


i installed it using synaptic and that went away .


You can also install and try 'cheese' instead.
