OpenSUSE Hardware :: Lifecam VX-3000 With Skype - Set Of Commands That Allow To Use My Webcam ?

Aug 11, 2011

Regarding the use of lifecam VX-3000 with skype. In this thread Microsoft lifecam Vx-3000 webcam - HELP

I found a set of commands that allow me to use my webcam within skype by running the following Code:

Unfortunately, it looks like I need to type in these lines every time I restart skype. Is there a way to automate the process, so that when I start my computer it executes the code before starting skype?

What this code does? I find it difficult to run commands without knowing what they do. Do you have to be a programmer to know about these commands or should everyone who uses suse know about that.

I switched from windows not long ago.

SUSE :: Unable To Use MS VX-3000 Webcam With 11.2

Jun 2, 2010

I have installed the gspca2 driver for my webcam, but in kopete, I still get only a wierd multi colored/scrambled thick line across the top of the webcam screen and the rest remains blank. This is in Kopete.In Kopete, under video, under device, under input, it shows "sonixj" and the device is "USB camera". I know the webcam works in Win7/Vista/XP, but I am trying to get away from using those OSs.

I had tried the 1 click SuSE install of the gspca2 driver but it wouldn't complete the install. Doing it in YaST directly seemed to work but I still get the same bad screen when using the webcam, which has it's LED light up.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Webcam Recommendations For 11.X And Skype?

Sep 28, 2010

I have much given up on my VX 3000 because not only the microphone doesn't work but also Skype crashes when I actually want to use it. The video only works in the settings/test video view but not for a video call.So: can anybody recommend a webcam with a microphone that works reliably on Suse 11.X and with Skype? I'm currently using Suse 11.2 but might upgrade to Suse 11.3, so it would be nice if the webcam would still work in 11.3...

OpenSUSE :: Testing Webcam In Skype Freezes It Up / Resolve It?

Apr 3, 2011

I can't use the webcam with skype. I followed the instructions on the SDB
Skype page of I can make calls and recieve calls, but there
is no video option. Sound isn't going either way during the calls. In
Skype's options menu, there is a place to test the video. When I click on
the "Test" button, Skype freezes and eventually the terminate application
window comes up.
The webcam is a Logitech that works fine in Cheese, and I've used it with
previous versions of Opensuse and Skype. The only skype available that
I've found is the 2.1 beta version, so that's what I'm using. I'm using
Opensuse 11.4 with KDE4.

Basically the webcam shows up in the list but clicking test does nothing, it just sits there. The webcam works perfectly in cheese.

But this doesn't seem too work now, not since I reinstalled ubuntu.

NOTE: I am using the 64bit release.

Ubuntu :: Webcam Is Not Working On Skype And Cheese?

Jan 18, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10. I can't seem to get skype to work. See, the person I'm chatting with can receive video and audio, I can receive audio, but I cannot see them, even when they engage their webcam.

My cheese can take pictures from my webcam, but I can't see the screen of the webcam before I take the picture, it's only black, and when I click on the take the picture, it'll take it, and display it correctly, but the screen is black. Now, I just dled camorama, but it's saying "Could not connect to video device C/dev/video0). please check connection." I don't know what this means.

My lsusb says:

Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub[code]....
The Ricoh Webcam is a built in cam, but it doesn't work either. I have an external cam that used to work, but the cam works, it's just the display that seems effed up.

Ubuntu :: Webcam Doesn't Work With Skype?

Jan 30, 2010

I have difficulty with my webcam and Skype. I can see the other person but she can't see me. From a previous thread: Are you sure your camera isnt working? Supported hardware drivers are in the kernel usually. Test: press alt+f2, type gstreamer-properties go to the video tab and see if your camera is listed as a device. If yes, press the test button. This test was OK. I could see my face on the screen.

Quote: Ah, the Skype camera thing. Launch it this way: LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/ skype

I tried this. It launches Skype OK, but the little window that should show what my webcam sees, appears full of black and white static.
