Webcam not working in PrettyGcode after ubuntu 22.04 upgrade

What is the problem?

My x86 ubuntu 20.04 asked to upgrade to 22.04 which caused various problems I eventually worked around, but the one persistent issue I have is that the webcam won't show up in the PrettyGcode full screen mode, just the camera icon in the bottom right, but clicking it does nothing.

What did you already try to solve it?

Refreshing the PrettyGcode page doesn't help (one suggestion I found).

Have you tried running in safe mode?


Did running in safe mode solve the problem?

didn't try it

Additional information about your setup

Running ubuntu linux on an x86 64 bit system version 22.04 with a logitech webcam. The webcam works fine in the timelapse test page and on the control tab, I can also connect directly to the mjpeg server with no problem. Before I upgraded to 22.04 I was running 20.04, and the webcam showed up fine (but that was also on older versions of Octoprint and PrettyGcode. The current OctoPrint is 1.8.6 and PrettyGcode is 1.2.4.

If nobody can help you here you can try to report the issue on the plugins github page
