Try the fix for gecko-mediaplayer documented on the old forum .. here:
http://peppermintos.net/viewtopic.php?p=42150#p42150

Also, make sure you have both ubuntu-restricted-extras and lubuntu-restricted-extras installed.

You might want to consider formatting the SDcard as say EXT4
mounting it via /etcfstab
and following this page to move your /home directory to it:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Partitioning/Home/Moving

Be aware, you'll not be able to remove the card from then on without the system becoming unbootable (at least into a GUI).

Or you could attempt to get creative with AUFS:

OK, it's not a bug it's the way blkid caches it's output.

blkid needs superuser permission to scan block devices, so needs "sudo", but after it's run the first time it will create a cache of the output at:-
/dev/.blkid.tab

when you subsequently run it without sudo, it's not scanning the block devices, it's reading the contents of that cache (via a symlink at /etc/blkid.tab)

Splained ?

Hmm .. and this topic started off so well.

Feelin the love  C:-) :-* C:-)

There, finally got to use that smiley that everyone was wondering what to do with .. but got arrested for it :))

Can you please remember to mark the topic (SOLVED) .. you can do this by editing the FIRST posting in the topic and appending (SOLVED) to the Subject line.

However, because this topic has a long title, that won't fit .. so please (when you're ready) change the Subject line of the FIRST posting in the topic to:

Subject: Sony Vaio UX1XN Webcam - Ricoh VGP-VCC3 R5U870 driver installation (SOLVED)

TIA :)

Congrats again on Peppermint OS- I am loving it.
Happy to hear you're enjoying Peppermint :)

OK, I've just patched the r5u870 driver so it should now compile in Peppermint 4 (kernel 3.8 ), and uploaded it to my dropbox.

Open a terminal and run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic
then
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/r5u870-source
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/r5u870-source
then
Code: [Select]
wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11876059/r5u870-kernel3.8.tar.gz
then
Code: [Select]
tar xvf r5u870-kernel3.8.tar.gz
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/r5u870-source/r5u870
then
Code: [Select]
make
then
Code: [Select]
sudo make install
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe r5u870
Now test the webcam in both Cheese and guvcview

It's NOT a bug in Docky or Lubuntu, that is caused by standard LXDE (and therefore Lubuntu) not having a compositor by default .. it's one of the reasons we moved to the xfwm4 window manager in Peppermint 4

Peppermint 5 (like Peppermint 4) will have a compositor by default, so Docky and Cairo-dock should "just work".

NO .. it SHOULD reboot the PC even if there's nothing wrong.

but REISUB or REISUO should be in lower case .. I only displayed it in upper case to draw attention to the letters.


if Alt is on the left side of the space bar, AltGr should be on the right of the space bar.

Does Cheese even support UVC webcams .. try installing guvcview
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install guvcview
and see if that can see your webcam.

the driver you keep trying to modprobe is no longer supported .. instead the instructions I gave you are supposed to load the firmware via the uvcvideo driver .. which IS being loaded.

It may just be that Cheese only supports v4l webcams.
