@tomegun - Thank you for the suggestion. It appears as though the problem lies with lxdm unfortunately. When I login with gdm, the camera is identified just fine without root permissions. I would like to open a bug with lxdm upstream, but am not totally sure what to say. Can you help me with the description?
