webcam funcktion in kopete does not work

this is kind of weird … everything else (skype, cheese) finds my
integrated gateway usb 2.0 webcam (/dev/video0), just not kopete …
when i go to options->video, i get a blue screen and there’s nothing in
the options below … just emptiness … any suggestion is very welcome
… also … i am a gui guy, so if you need any sys info, could you
please provide the code to get it, and i shall then promptly get you the
info you need … thanks, theo

Seems to be a bug web-cams will only work with amsn so far

what’s puzzling is that the cam worked with 11.0 … i had to upgrade,
since 11.1 supported my integrated rtl8187b wifi card … it’s not the
end of the world, just 've been used to it … theo

it gets weirder … so i switched over to kopete kde4, and now i can see
the device but only a green screen … then i thought, let’s be sneaky:
turned cheese on, and then went into kopete’s video setup: actually
worked … for a second or two … now, when i go back to cheese, webcam
stays off and only comes back up after i logoff and kill kopete …
also: there are no webcam requests or feed icons in kopete kde4’s chat
windows … theo

Running 11.1. My webcam works in Skype. Kopete has nothing listed.

I am running KDE 3.5.XX. Webcam is coming in from composite source of
Hauppaauge BT878 TV card. Works perfectly in most other applications
(xawtv will not launch) but Kdtv works fine. Is this just a Kopete bug?
A bug with Kopete in OpenSuSE 11.1 or what? I am an OpenSuSE newbie.

What must you do to make this work? Anyone?
