Hi everyone, i just installed "eviacam", a program that lets you use your camera as a mouse.

It shows me this when i want to start the program, "Can not initialize the camera. Perhaps is being used by other application".

I installed cheese because linux mint 13 didn't detect the camera in the first time. Cheese and Kopete detect my camera and i can see me, but i don't know how to resolve the problem related with eviacam.

please, help me.

the Kubuntu or Evicam forums might be a better place to ask

I would close all apps then run ksysguard to make sure there's nothing like Cheese or Kopete or Flash still running, then restart evacam

It may also be worthwhile checking "dmesg" to see if any errors relating to the webcam are printed.
