    Hello,

    is there a preferred app for a laptop camera in Antix? I tried to search for camera, but the search finds nothing, maybe I am not searching correctly.

    Cheers
    s.

    Searching within synaptic package manager, searching either “camera” or “webcam” finds plenty of results.

    Collecting recommendations is a good idea, but finding consensus on a “preferred” app might be impossible ~~ each person will differently weigh (value) certain features, functionality, usability details.

    guvcview is a handy and simple program for the webcam.
    If you want to play with effects or something you could have a look at cheese.

    There are also fancier messaging apps available via package installer…
