    Question no video chat buttons in chat programms like kopete or kmess

    Hello togehter,

    I have encountered a puzzling thing.

    When I wanted to video chat with someone I discovered that the button for starting a chat conversation was missing. I now it was there in the past ;-) First I thought maybe its a problem of kopete, but then I cross checked it installing kmess with the same result.

    So on my system in chat programs there is no button to start video chat.


    Description:
    in kopete in the video configuration menu the webcam is displayed, video working and configurable e.g. contrast.

    But as mentioned above, no possibility to start a video chat.

    Code:
    kopete --version
    Qt: 4.4.3
    KDE: 4.2.1 (KDE 4.2.1) "release 103"
    Kopete: 0.70.0
    Code:
    uname -a
    Linux linux-coreduo 2.6.27.19-3.2-default #1 SMP 2009-02-25 15:40:44 +0100 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    Code:
    lsusb | grep Logitech
    Bus 008 Device 002: ID 046d:08b2 Logitech, Inc. QuickCam Pro 4000
    lsof before starting video in kopete
    Code:
    lsof | grep video
    kopete    4854     foobar  mem       REG                8,3      105336    2484133 /usr/lib64/libkopete_videodevice.so.4.2.0
    lsof after start video in kopete
    Code:
    lsof | grep video
    kopete    4854     foobar  mem       CHR               81,0                   4414 /dev/video0
    kopete    4854     foobar  mem       REG                8,3      105336    2484133 /usr/lib64/libkopete_videodevice.so.4.2.0
    kopete    4854     foobar   13u      CHR               81,0         0t0       4414 /dev/video0
    Has anyone encountered this and has an idea how to solve it?

    Help is greatly appreciated.
