    Wow! What a workaround! :D
    If You or anyone else would still be interested in this problem, You can try Envy.It worked for me.
    You can download it from here:
    Just install it by:
    sudo dpkg -i envy_0.9.10-0ubuntu10_all.deb
    and download the missing dependent packages by sudo apt-get install ...
    run Envy:
    sudo envy -t
    answer some obvious questions and reboot.
    After that You can remove it from the system:
    sudo apt-get --purge remove envy
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    And You're all done.

    Hi guys,
    I recently installed Zoneminder on and followed different process to install it,
    I have a problem, I have got cameras, both USB, one IP camera and a webcam, none of them is recognise.
    After configuration, monitor is orange but source is red.
    My camera are located at /dev/video0 and /dev/video1, manage to get them working with vlc and cheese, but not with zone minder.
    Any Idea??
