Hi,

I have a Macbook 2008, and recently installed Fedora 18. However, the webcam does not work at all. I used cheese and no picture appears. How can I solve this problem?

Hey, I had the same problem. I did a little research and the problem was gstreamer was not installed, which is necessary for Cheese to work, so just type the next command and you will be able to use cheese.

Identify as a root and then:

yum install gstreamer

That's it, I hope it works for you as well.
