Open source driver breaks usb webcam. (Ubuntu 16.04)

Postby Fiddlesticks » Sat May 19, 2018 6:09 am

Hi,

New(ish) install of 16.04 and installed the open source driver for the TBS6280. Before installation the usb webcam worked fine. Afterwards it is not available in Cheese / Skype etc.

Webcam is a Logitech C270. It has worked previously.

I have tried it both ways. As soon as the install completes successfully the webcam fails.
