TUMBLEWEED KDE - Built-in camera not found.

Good day!

When I try to open my notebook built-in camera though KDE I got the following:

 Unable to run the command specified. The file or folder /home/drawbridge/processing-3.5.4/modes/java/examples/Basics/Camera does not exist.

Also, I’m not sure if I have the proper drivers installed (probably not) and searching about one for TB I found nothing.

How should I proceed?

Most webcams are connected through USB, so you should find something relevant opening a terminal and issuing:


If you are unsure which is which, the following commands should show more detail:

lsusb -v
sudo hwinfo --usb

Please check if your system has means to disable the camera, whether in the firmware/BIOS, a dedicated Fn key or a hidden switch in the lid.
The common basic driver is uvcvideo, so if the camera is working and is engaged you should see something like:
