It recognized the webcam alright. But after an update perhaps a couple of months ago, it no longer does. Skype is Beta version 188.8.131.52. If I go to Options, Video devices, it shows me only one option for webcam, namely Quote:USB Camera (05a9:a511) (/dev/video0)I click on test but nothing happens. I can communicate and see the other person, but she doesn't see me
I've had Fedora 11 running on my PC since shortly after release. I have a DVD-ROM as the Master on the single IDE port on my MoBo and a DVD-RAM as the slave on that port. I also have 4 ea SATA 500GB HDDs using JBOD configuration on the MoBo. When I first installed F 11 I noticed that if I dupped a CD the blank icon would stay on my desktop, even though I had removed it. Also it did not "see" that I had put a new blank in the burner. I would have to reboot to correct. However the system would recognize an audio cd, play it rip or whatever.
Now the first problem I think has gone away but neither drive when I put an audio cd into them will recognize it. The light on the drive will come on and then start flashing as normal, but nothing happens. When I check to see if I can manually mount it, the system comes back with No Media in drive. Anyone have any ideas? This seems to have happened I'd say about 1.5 weeks ago was the last time I know it worked. I suspect an update possibly "broke" something. Any reliable knowledge base as to what actually transpires between the time I put a CD in the drive and the icon pops up and it starts playing or whatever.
I made a mistake installing the most recent distro of Ubuntu. When choosing where to install the loader, I selected "Windows 7 (loader)" instead of the proper default option. Now when I select Windows 7 in GRUB, it just brings me right back to GRUB.
However, my Windows installation and all the files are still present on the disk. The recovery disk doesn't recognize the Windows installation, but all the files are clearly present. I was even able to recover my most important files onto a USB drive using the file browser in the recovery disk.How can I correct this mistake? I need to be able to boot into Windows 7 again.
i have sony viao vgn-fz11 Can someone please help ,im new user to ubuntu been trying to get webcam working properly at the moment its upside down and does not work in skype at all just get black screen does this look correct? do i have the right driver?i will try and give as much information as i can.
I've been running Karmic since it was officially released on my Dell Studio 17 (specs are in my signature) with a Broadcom wireless half mini wireless card.hen I installed Karmic, it gave me the option to install proprietary drivers for my video card as well as 2 Broadcom drivers, STA and one of the BC43 drivers. I installed all of these, and the only problems I had were with the audio. I spent a few days troubleshooting the audio and finally got PulseAudio set up for my card.
Almost 3 months later, I was making use of my wireless network at home, as I had done plenty of times over the previous 3 months, when I closed the lid (thus putting the computer into sleep mode) and took it to the hospital to stay with my fianc饠after her surgery. When I got to the hospital, I couldn't get their network to show up. Network Manager didn't even recognize the network. We had also brought my fianc饧s laptop (same machine with a slightly less powerful CPU and only 4 GB of RAM). She is running Windows 7, which detected the hospital's network with no problems.After trying to ad-hoc the hospital network with no success, I finally just gave up and played Sudoku and toyed with some graphics stuff in GIMP until we came home. Upon returning home, however, I was shocked that my card didn't even detect our home network.
I have been unsuccessful for the past 3 days in getting Network Manager to identify our wireless network. The wired network connects without issue and I am able to make use of a USB Belkin adapter, which identifies all 7 of the various wireless networks in my neighborhood, including our home network.While I would be able to simply carry my Belkin adapter with me in order to make use of wireless networks, I would really like to solve this problem with my Broadcom adapter. I've gone through the Ubuntu Wireless Network Troubleshooting guide, but I still can't get it to workOutput of lshw -C network:
I am having this problem since the day I upgraded ubuntu from 10.04 to 10.10. Couldn't solve it then and now I would like to try again.
>> Webcam is working fine in Cheese Webcam Booth.
But it's not detected in skype. I tried this command
Code: LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype >> I didn't work as last time. Error Messages of it on terminal is as under: Quote: ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
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.
I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed on my dv2000 hp latpop. I also installed the Beta version of Skype. But when I test webcam in skype the light of the webcam glows but I do not see image on the test screen. the test screen remains back. Could someone suggest what could be the problem and a possible solution?PS: The webcam works fine with "Cheese"
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/v4l1compat.so 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.
I am running Maverick 10.10, kernel 2.6.35-22 (32 bit) on an HP DV2000 with Skype version 184.108.40.206The webcam is detected by lsusb as Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0c45:62c0 Microdia Sonix USB 2.0 CameraI have tried some of the normal fixes found on many other threads (and HERE), including running the following commands from the terminal:
I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a desktop computer. In general things work pretty well but I cannot get the webcam to work in Skype. It's a Zebronics webcam, not sure of the model number. I installed Cheese to see if it shows videos from the webcam connected to the computer and it does. In Skype preference I can see that Skype looks for the webcam in /dev/video0 but apparently it can't find anything there.
I wish there was some client program in Ubuntu/Linux which supported both audio call and video chat on the yahoo network. Kopete supports only video and Gyache is not compatible with the new Yahoo 10 protocol or whatever it is. Extremely frustrating for someone who is trying to get others to use Ubuntu instead of Windows.
I have a Dell E6520 with Ubuntu 11.04 installed. The webcam and everything else has worked like a charm, including webcam in Skype and other applications. Today Skype webcam got VERY dark. I installed cheese and started it up. The screen was dark initially, but auto adjusted to be good again.
However in Skype same problems. So I followed this: [URL] and installed guvcview and tried to set some values. Suddenly I got some exceptions, and now nothing is working. Cheese will not even show anything else then a hint of a lamp that is in the background. I have tried to install many different software to be able to set the webcam, but no success. In some I get an decent image to start with, but then after one second it will go dark again.
Basic: Video call in Skype using the C310 causes the PC to crash at random times during the session. The quickcam seems to be ok, just an awful experience. Thought it might be a pulseaudio problem so did the following:
added autospawn = no to .pulse/client.conf killall pulseaudio Restarted Skype Changed audio settings in Skype to use MB chip ICH5 Restarted pulseaudio -D
No difference (if anything crashes quicker) except the CPU load is halved.
The pc freezes and is unresponsive. lights on keyboard flash.
I have no idea if this is sound or video card related.
When i run skype, it detects my camera , but it work show any picture when i test. In gstreamer-properties testing, it works fine using v4l2. When i use Cheese, it comes up with no problem. Below is the terminal output from my testing. How can i get this to work?
Skype does not detect my webcam, despite other programs such as aMSN and Kopete being able to detect my webcam.The 'lsusb' command says the following regarding my webcam.Bus 002 Device 002: ID 046d:08ac Logitech, Inc. QuickCam CoolI'm using Skype version 220.127.116.11 beta which is the latest version.I'm running Opensuse version 11.3 the 64 bit version
I just got a Logitech c210 webcam, as from what I gathered this UVC cam/microphone device works with Linux ...However ... skype 18.104.22.168 can't seem to see my webcam when it's connected, even though it appears to be configured when plugged in, as the following output from dmesg shows:
Code: [20227.480098] usb 2-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6 [20227.741045] usb 2-1: New USB device found, idVendor=046d, idProduct=0819
I'm a newbie to Ubuntu (9.10) and have been unable to get the webcam to work in Skype. It works just fine in Cheese.

i am trying to video chat with my logitech C200 webcam but it does not work with skype or empathy. Do i need to download special drivers?. In skype i can't even test the camera. and with empathy the webcam icon and the video call option are grayed out. I downloaded "guvcview" from the software center and it works like a charm, i can capture video and take pictures, so i don't really understand why skype and emphaty dont work.
