This has been happening for a week now, I think. The first time I noticed the webcam’s LED indicator was on, I opened Cheese to check if the cam was really busy, and it was: Cheese showed a warning that the cam could not be accessed.
The problem affects OBS Studio, as well, which is really bad for me, because I’m a primary school teacher and I need to record videos from time to time.
Fortunately, it doesn’t happen with Chrome, since I have online meetings on WebEx, GMeet, Jitsi or MSTeams nearly every day.
I have to say I did some things that could have messed up something in the system (I don’t really know, I’m not a power user). I installed two apps from the AUR:
- Microsoft Teams
- Webex Meetings
I removed them to see if the problem got solved, but it didn’t.
Thank you very much. I love Manjaro and its community.
