I started using Gnome desktop with the 2010 release. I use skype to visit with my son and granddaughters but since the new installation, they can see my video, but i only get the desktop on my screen. Audio is OK.
I fired up skype in root last night and the video test showed me at my desk. I didn't connect to anyone so I'm not 100% whether they can see me, but just making an assumption.
I think maybe this is a permission issue, but don't know where to look. I checked my user and i do belong to the video group.
