Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

A tiny box pop up and asks me if I want to allow or decline something, and I click "accept" but nothing happens. The box keeps being there and just is there. Is there any way to fix this?

Take a look at these answers mentioned on my previous post at: How make my Logitech Quickcam e3500 work? which I reproduce here for you and that may not help you to fix this issue but will allow you to use your webcam in web based video-chat services (such as www.ubiqq.com).

This seems to be such a common issue when attempting to use the webcam, usb based, for a video conference through a flash player based system, such as Fonomo, Ubiqq, or Skype, etc.

I suggest you to take a look at the answers provided in these questions, which may lead to help you to fix this issue.

  1. Flash crashes on enabling webcam
  2. Webcam not detected by Flash
  3. logitec webcam for notebooks deluxe
  4. QuickCam E 3500 working from Cheese, but not Skype

In my case I fixed that issue by using the Flashcam Project, mentioned on these answers and whose instructions for a correct usage can be reached right here: http://www.swift-tools.net/Flashcam/

Another good trick that makes my days when attempting to use the webcam through web browsers is the usage of Webcam Studio, which can be reached here: http://www.ws4gl.org/. After running the Webcam Studio you will have a virtual "bridge" between your physical webcam and what the Flash Player is expecting to find.

I hope this gives you a clue on where to begin.

Good luck!
