Whoever decided that a POS app that doesn’t even work on tons of machines and has nothing to do with anything else (despite guvcview and other webcam software working fine) being a prerequisite for gnome-control-center should be fired. This has existed for years and remains. Black screen that shouldn’t bother me, but it does. Any thoughts on deleting the app, deleting the line in the app list ot just maybe making Cheese work would be great.
cheese is a dependency for this 3 packages:
Required By (3)
so uninstalling will remove them too.
Nothing we can do on that downstream.
Maybe someone should pay them first…

Clearly not very important compared to other dependencies there(though there are more that are only dependencies to keep people from removing them for the bloat that they are) since it just has to be there and not work. I get Ubuntu doing that stuff, but I can’t believe the Budgie team wouldn’t compile without some of that.
It isn’t the budgie team. It is a packaging decision by the Arch packager for gnome.
Just to be clear, I am not criticizing. I am sure there is a reason that decision was made.
It is a required dependency of
Fair enough, but I’ll be damned if I can think of the reason. Sloppy shared code that someone (not the Arch team or even Budgie) is too lazy to clean up is the only reason I can see.
We have had this before you know It never gets installed when i build gnome.
The devs that make distros are to blame and its simple they just install meta package nothing more why do you think tweak-tool is not installed on most Gnome distros no Love that is why.
we are not even a GNOME Distro
I know EndeavourOS devs do care that the Desktops are functional I’m actually using the desktop but soon my trial with EndeavourOS is over I trial OSs for 3 months to see how they fare. I may even keep it along side my pride and joy Arch Linux.
This is my pride & joy! I use it for longer than 3 months.
I used Elementary for 2 years and just used my spar machine and VMs to “hop.” Seriously, LOL.
I used my pride and joy arch for over 15 years + 1 install beat that and then try and say Arch is not stable. Lol
I live in North Texas and have been playing guitar for almost 40 years. You can guess how much I love SRV. Plus, I’ve been on some combination of PC MS-DOS/Windows since PC DOS 3.2. Ouch!
Rid myself of my Cheese issue. Well, I cheated and reinstalled Endeavour with Cinnamon. I have to admit it’s pretty perfect especially given my existing propensity for a Windows looking OS. Same issue I mentioned in another thread that I can’t close my laptop with all of my other monitors on and not make the system unusably slow. I sure wish I knew what the Elementary OS team did to make that work OK, but screw it. Laptop stays open even in desktop mode I guess.
