I recently upgraded to Ubuntu Gnome 14.04, and when I tried to use cheese, it showed the message One or more needed GStreamer elements are missing: cluttervideosink Cheese worked just fine in 13.10 and on the live CD of 14.04. I have tried installing other GStreamer things, but nothing has worked.

  • maybe you need to remove and install again the cheese on Ubuntu Software Center , because thats works to me. – LawNewbie May 1 '14 at 16:18
  • @LawNewbie I did try that, but it didn't work. – Alex Dueppen May 24 '14 at 14:47

You must indeed install gstreamer1.0-clutter

And also do rm -r ~/.cache/gstreamer-1.0 to erase gstreamer-1.0 folder inside of your /home/.cache hidden folder.

  • man you saved me as well. I had a similar problem : there weren't any gstreamer core elements present in my install. Did your thing, worked perfectly :) – Hadrien Titeux Dec 27 '14 at 0:31

    Already had gstreamer1.0-clutter installed. This fixed mine too. Thanks! – CodeMouse92 May 11 '15 at 1:23
