I have taken some pictures using CHEESE, but now I cannot locate those images, so I can do nothing with them. I can't even delete them for the CHEESE GUI does not allow me to do anything with the image (although it does display it).

I read here that the images would be located under ~/.gnome2/cheese/media, but in the .gnome folder there is no folder called cheese and I have searched my system for the folders, cheese and media, but found no folders containing my images.

So my question is, where does CHEESE store its images in my system?

My OS is Ubuntu 14.10.

Information on my CHEESE package:

cheese: Installed: 3.12.2-1ubuntu2 Candidate: 3.12.2-1ubuntu2
Version table: *** 3.12.2-1ubuntu2 0 500 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ utopic/main amd64 Packages 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status


Mine are saved in ~/Pictures/Webcam. Also, I can right-click the images in cheese then a menu will pop up with the options: Open, Save As..., Move to Trash and Delete.

  • Mine doesn't show the options which you describe. – user364819 Jan 17 '15 at 21:53
