Re: /dev/video0 permissions

Just add your self to the correct group. If you are using udev it is video.

Re: /dev/video0 permissions

I've added myself to the Video group, having the same problem with permissions. I can't get access at all, reboot or not.

Also, root can't run gui apps (at least not atm). I'll try with root first.

Re: /dev/video0 permissions

I use the quick (¿and incorrect?) way. I add to rc.local my chmod and chown commands. This way I don't have to care if I'm under udev or devfs or what's next comming.

Re: /dev/video0 permissions

If you use udev, what does your /etc/udev/permissions.d/udev.permission say how the device is configured?

May that's the easiest way to get it running with udev.

The 2nd possibility is the one i use: dont use udev smile. But i guess that's no help to you.

Don't tell me udev is much better, i know about the features of udev, still, until the next release of raw1394 supporting udev i won't touch udev again.
