Webcam not found any longer
Open, Needs TriagePublic


No idea since when this happened, I just tried my webcam again, and it is only "partially" recognized.

I get it as audio recording device, but not as video device in systemsettings. Other apps don't recognize the webcam either.

Bus 001 Device 005: ID 046d:0809 Logitech, Inc. Webcam Pro 9000

First I thought uvcvideo probably isn't loaded, but see there:

~$ lsmod |grep uvcvideo
uvcvideo               86016  0 
videobuf2_vmalloc      16384  1 uvcvideo
videobuf2_core         40960  1 uvcvideo
videodev              131072  3 uvcvideo,v4l2_common,videobuf2_core
media                  20480  2 uvcvideo,videodev
usbcore               200704  8 snd_usb_audio,uvcvideo,snd_usbmidi_lib,ehci_hcd,ehci_pci,usbhid,xhci_hcd,xhci_pci

dmesg schows the following

[88937.385191] usb 1-1.3: new high-speed USB device number 5 using ehci-pci

[88938.253453] usb 1-1.3: set resolution quirk: cval->res = 384

So I checked if Skype can find the camera, and see there: Skype gets a picture. Why does KDE not recognize the camera?
