I am using Samsung N508 laptop, Kubuntu 11.10.  Webcam in the laptop
is WEBCAM SCB-0355N.I want to use it to take photographs, video etc. I
installed Cheese and all related packages. I also installed vlc and
mplayer ( because I heard that it will solve my problem). My problem
is that Cheese does not work. It only shows a blackm screen, all
buttons are greyed out. How can I make Cheese work ? I am relatively
new to Kubuntu. Can someone help me ?
