After the last system update,to 15.04 r25 version, the camera is not working. I only get a black screen when it is turned on.

  • Because of the very specific rules I can neither upvote or comment. So I would just like to register that I am suffering from the exact same problem, brought about by the exact same problems. I have done the exact same things, and have done both safe boots and the hardware test. This answer may be deleted by the StackExchange people, but I hope they file some sort of report saying that StackExchange users from other StackExchange subjects should be allowed to at least upvote a problem / question. – Rasmus Sep 25 '15 at 18:42

Did you receive a prompt asking you to allow the Camera app to access the phone camera?

If not, you can check in System Settings - Security and Privacy - Other application accesses - Camera, and confirm if the check item for Camera is ticked.

  • Yes, the camera app is authorized to access the phone camera. Thanks, but it is not working. – giovanoiannotti Sep 4 '15 at 4:20
