The source files can be downloaded from here. I want to use the last stable version.
- How to install Cheese from source?
- Or Is there any .deb file of version 3.8.3 available somewhere?
Download the latest version for Raring from here
Go to Downloads or directory where you downloaded .deb file
Install by executing:
sudo dpkg -i cheese_3.8.2-0ubuntu1~raring1_i386.deb
Be sure that you have installed the dependent packages of Cheese. If you run:
$ sudo dpkg -i cheese_3.8.2-0ubuntu1~raring1_i386.deb
It will give errory message some what like:

And thus installs a broken package. So fix this broken package by executing:
$ sudo apt-get -f install $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get upgrade
apt-get upgrade is necessary because it insures that you have latest library files.
Then how to install with dependent packages (here you are:)
Download it from here one by one and put in the same directory where cheese_3.8.2-0ubuntu1~raring1_i386.deb is saved.
Then go to directory cheese and execute this command (I am assuming that you placed all .deb file in a directory cheese somewhere in your system.):
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb
Reply for further assistance.. Hope it will work now.
