I have a Mikomi USB webcam (not sure which drivers it uses). When I'm logged in and on my desktop (which is, for the record, Gnome 3) and I connect my cam, Arch Linux doesn't detect it. I can resolve this problem, however, by logging out and logging back in, in which the camera will be detected and will work.
How can I get it to automatically connect on insertion?
EDIT: Seems as if Arch Linux does detect it on insertion ("lsusb" shows "ALi corp.", which I believe is what the 'cam is based on), but it won't show up in Cheese, Opera, etc.

"... being a Linux user is sort of like living in a house inhabited by a large family of carpenters and architects. Every morning when you wake up, the house is a little different. Maybe there is a new turret, or some walls have moved. Or perhaps someone has temporarily removed the floor under your bed." - Unix for Dummies, 2nd Edition
Check your system logs, that might give you a clue to what's breaking down
