Thread: Missing programs from program/applications list

  1. #1

    Default Missing programs from program/applications list

    Hi not new to SUSE but have not used in a while.

    Just recently wanted to try SUSE again downloaded 12.1 stable when I started checking out available programs

    I was searching for a program for my webcam (used as a security camera) Kopete was the only program available it seemed.



    but I searched for the program it's not listed in the application tree!

    Yast shows it being installed

    help says look in applications-internet-chat but no Kopete the webcam I use for security shows up in hardware.

    yet I need a program "that allows me to operate it as a security cam"

    Can anyone help me work this out.

    Thanks

    Hi
    Would that be a moment in time or a stream? If it's just a moment in
    time, the cli utility stream does this or something like
    grabby (http://www.vanheusden.com/grabby/).

    Hi thanks for responding sorry for the late come back to many passwords and locked out yesterday
    I checked out grabby it appears it will allow photos to be captured but I was intending to record video and be allowed to save it for review if needed.
    The cli utility stream what about it?
