Thanks and OK, Nils !
Yes, disk space is not the problem. ;-)

The problem is more that once in a while I am getting this camera popup
during system boot !
Another problem: I cannot remember that I have started or put them into
startup procedure !?

When activating Camera Monitor under Applications / Sound and Video 
I am getting this popup that there is another instance running
already !!

Camorama Webcam Viewer is placed under Graphics !!

How do I get both to the same place ie Sound and Video ?
How do I stop Camorama and try Camera Monitor and/or opposite !?

TIA for enlightening/s and cheers, svobi
