Description Adrien Kwok 2008-09-10 01:22:53 UTC
Version:           0.60.1 (using 4.1.2 (KDE 4.1.1 (KDE 4.1 >= 20080828)) "release 32.2", KDE:KDE4:Factory:Desktop / openSUSE_11.0)
Compiler:          gcc
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release

The problem here is that whenever I launch the configuration box, the webcam is turned on. Once I quit the configuration box, the webcam still stays turned on and could not be turned off. This is a major issue as I just want to change the software setting and do not want to use the webcam.

It's very annoying. I have a Logitech QuickCam Chat with the GSPCA driver that came with openSUSE 11.

Does the same thing happen in 0.70.0?  If it does, it's likely a GSPCA issue, as I do not have this issue with that version and my QuickCam Pro 9000.
