[Bug 924419] Re: oem-config detecting camera where no camera exists


This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 2.13.17

ubiquity (2.13.17) raring; urgency=low

  * Remove webcam step (LP: #1118589):
    - User testing showed people are not expecting to be photographed and
      raise privacy concerns as to where the picture will be uploaded to.
    - Provides limited benefit, as avatar only ever shown on multi-login
      systems in the switch user indicator / pkexec.
    - Crashes the installer or doesn't work with certain webcams.
    - Miss detects camera presence, when it's just a sensor.
    - The recommendation is to move webcam test to checkbox / hw testing,
      as video conferencing is very popular these days and should work
      reliably out of the box.

  * Do not count optional pages, when updating the progress dots. This
    fixes "Porgress dots, well don't progress after partman step"
    LP: #1152746
  * Do not mark explanatory text on "Installation Type" screen
    insensitive, as otherwise it's ineligible (LP: #1074386)
