Ubuntu – Where’s the settings/preferences in Cheese photo booth


My built in camera doesn't work well, it's damage and have crappy and blurry result, so I use a Logitech webcam.
Since I can switch the cams in Skype, I think the same option should be there for Cheese.

I have seen some threads saying to change the cam in Cheese settings, and this is a very stupid question but my Cheese has no settings/preferences or even a menu bar ; just the x, maximize and minimize window, the effects and take photo button.

Where do I access the settings or preferences?

  • You just need to move your mouse to the upper left corner of your screen to reveal the Cheese Menu:

    Then open the Preferences to select your device:
