What do you call an ugly hack ? 
My point is not to use pam_console. Instead I am asking if there is a
clean way to know which user is in front of the computer. If yes, it
would be possible to give access to the only one that have interest on
Giving everyone in a given group access to the camera (the current
solution) is not ideal.
