No webcam in kopete

Hi,

trying to set up the webcam in kopete I get only a green picture. The webcam doesn’t start. luvcview gives a nice pic.

Here some informations.


erik@notebook:~> kopete --version
Qt: 4.4.3
KDE: 4.1.3 (KDE 4.1.3) "release 4.9"
Kopete: 0.60.3
erik@notebook:~> uname -a
Linux notebook 2.6.27.19-3.2-default #1 SMP 2009-02-25 15:40:44 +0100 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I’m running KDE 3.5 in the current version.

Relevant output from lsusb:


Bus 008 Device 002: ID 174f:5a31 Syntek Sonix USB 2.0 Camera

lsof before running kopete, whilst running it and whilst configuration:


notebook:~ # lsof | grep video
notebook:~ # lsof | grep video

konsole output of kopete whilst trying to configure:


VIDIOC_ENUMSTD: Das Argument ist ungültig
VIDIOC_ENUM_FMT: Das Argument ist ungültig
VIDIOC_ENUMSTD: Das Argument ist ungültig
VIDIOC_ENUM_FMT: Das Argument ist ungültig
VIDIOC_S_INPUT: Das Gerät oder die Ressource ist belegt
... # That line appears many times
VIDIOC_STREAMOFF error 16, Das Gerät oder die Ressource ist belegt

and dmesg tells me:


uvcvideo: Failed to query (1) UVC control 9 (unit 3) : -32 (exp. 2).

Any ideas?

Bye

Erik
