Webcam connection is not working on the snap version. Thanks to Leslie for reporting the bug.

According to the documentation it looks like non default plugs need to be declared in order to use the interfaces so scratux/scratux-desktop@0cf8385 fixes this by declaring the camera plug. The problem is that a manual connection is needed (snap connect scratux:camera) to make it work since Ubuntu developers don't allow auto-connection. Next Scratux release will be shipped with this fix and then I will ask for auto-connection to Ubuntu developers.

With the new release of Scratux 1.2 the workaround to make it work is, after installing Scratux:

sudo snap connect scratux:camera

Then, restart Scratux and it should work. I will ask for auto-connection to Ubuntu developers in the following days.

I've just requested the auto-connection to Ubundu Devs, any comment would be appreciated: https://forum.snapcraft.io/t/auto-connecting-the-camera-interface-for-the-scratux-app/12792
