I have a labtec usb webcam. It works well with cheese. It doesn't work with firefox hello.

lsusb output

Bus 002 Device 004: ID 093a:2626 Pixart Imaging, Inc. 

It looks like you need to add a rule to allow the detected device to operate

sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/10-local.rules 

alternately you can use gedit or vim

ADD this piece of text with the appropriate bus, Vendor ID and Device ID and your hardware will be up and running.. You can enable the rules yourselves or you may want to reboot..

  • what piece of text? I can only see an edit command in your post... – lapisdecor Jun 17 '16 at 16:18
