Hi Folks,


I’m still working on a solution to having students work with Cheese, and may purchase a linux box to get around the VirtualBox issue. I really appreciate all of the helpful comments and I’ll let you know how we progress. And if you have any suggestions for a low-cost box that I can put Linux on that will support Cheese, I’m all ears. I’m looking at the ASUS eeeboxs.

Hi Folks,


I am a professor at Western New England University. I am interested in having some of my students work with Cheese. However, I cannot get Cheese to work. My environment is:


Dell Lattitude E6500

VirtualBox 4.1.2

Windows XP host (32 bit)

Fedora 15 guest


Logitech C310 webcam


Cheese appears to be successfully installed and the webcam works on native XP. VirtualBox can see the USB, but it is still is not recognizing the device as a web cam. I have added filters for that and for the printer, which VirtualBox correctly recognizes. However, Cheese cannot connect to the web cam. The characteristics are:


Cheese is showing “no device found”

All menu options are grayed out except sending things to trash and Help.

VirtualBox USB device listing is showing:  Unknown device 046D:081B [0010]

Lsusb provides (no printer attached):  

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 80ee:0021

The virtual system does not even detect the wecam :/ Doing a search for "virtualbox usb webcam" reveals that this seems to be a common issue with not a unique solution. Would it be possible for student to boot a small gnome 3 image from a usb stick instead (like one of these)?



My constraints are such that I can’t move students to native Linux machines. I’ve also been unsuccessful in finding a solution either on the Cheese or VirtualBox forums.


Any help would be most appreciated!!
