Ubuntu Installation :: Empathy And Pidgeon - Activate My Video For Both - Doesn't Recognize My Webcam

Mar 20, 2011

I have both pigeon and empathy working on my laptop, and can chat in both, but i have been wanting to activate my video for both, but apparently it doesn't recognize my webcam. It seems strange as i have skype working perfectly on my system, and can use the video option in it without any problem, so it cant be that my webcam isnt recognized. does anyone know how i can get my webcam working in either or both of these instant messengering services.

OpenSUSE Network :: System Doesn't Recognize Video Card

Mar 26, 2010

So the only experience I have with Linux is all from Ubuntu, and I just spontaneously decided that I needed a change...two days later my triple boot Macbook Pro got slimmed down to a dual boot OSX/OpenSUSE 11.2 machine. But there are some general problems, and I have absolutely no idea how to solve them. First, wireless isn't recognized at all...there isn't even a space for wireless connections. Second, I haven't been able to get compiz to work yet, and I can only suspect that the system doesn't recognize my video card, or the driver isn't installed. Yet again, no idea how to fix this.

Ubuntu :: Change Webcam Resolution In Empathy?

Mar 31, 2010

Does anyone know of a hidden option that will allow you to change the resolution / bitrate of a webcam in empathy.I am using empathy with google talk to do video chat. I have two webcams, one pc seems to be sending out at about 20k/s the other at 80k/s, which is the limit of my broadband. The one that is sending out at 80k/s has a newer webcam capable of higher resolutions. The problem is that since it is maxing out my broadband the picture and audio and very bad quality.

Feb 12, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Webcam Not Working In Skype / Empathy?

Nov 21, 2010

i'm trying to use video call in skype or empathy, either is fine. Neither works. In Skype I can receive video but it doesn't broadcast mine at all. In empathy it shows my video right up to the second the call connects, then the 'video call' crashes.

edit: cam is definitely working (works fine in cheese and other cam apps) just not broadcasting

Ubuntu Installation :: ThinkPad T400 - Video And Webcam Drivers

Dec 30, 2010

I would like to install Ubuntu 10 on my Thinkpad T400, but would like feedback from other T400 users that have Ubuntu running on their laptops. First, will it recognize all my hardware? I hear most Thinkpad users had issues with video and webcam drivers, but that was with an earlier version of Ubuntu 8 through 9. So my plan is to have Ubuntu 10 as my primary OS on the T400 and use Win7 within VMware.

Ubuntu Installation :: Forced Upgrade From 7.10 On Sparc - Doesn’t Recognize The Cd Rom

Aug 14, 2010

Got kernel panic when upgradeing from 9.04 to 9.10... Have a tough time with this sparc server. On newer disto it doesnt regognize the cdrom in installation what will result in no install. I tried all trix I found on internet about this issue but none of them did it for me. So I went back in versions. When I come to 7.10 gutsy everything seems to work, so now everything is up and running.

But now I want it back on version 9.04. Last time (a year ago) I did the same thing, and just do-release-update to current version. Now that doesnt work. Maybe becourse I need some updates to gutsy, and the gutsy repositorys is not available anywere. how I can pass this upgrade to 8.04? I set the APT::Get::AllowUnauthenticated true; to pass this far...

Slackware :: Activate Laptop Integrated Webcam Dell Inspiron 1525?

Oct 31, 2010

I've been using slackware64 13.1 ever since it came out on my Dell Inspiron 1525, and I haven't really had any problems with my webcam in that time. However, last time I tried to use skype - I noticed that it couldn't detect it.

In kinfocenter, my webcam is picked up (OmniVision Technologies). The only time I've had a similar problem in the past is when I used the "Compact" option in lilo.conf, and the webcam wouldn't turn on. Just removing the option solved the problem.

Since I don't know what steps caused this to happen, I'm not sure where to start fixing it

Jan 20, 2010

I have an ATI Radeon 9000 Graphics card that Ubuntu 9.10 doesn't seem to recognize no matter what I do. Knowing that its an older card and that ATI stopped support for it a while ago, I was wondering if anyone knows if I would have better luck on Ubuntu 8.04. I can't get 3d or opengl to work, or install the correct ATI Driver.

Ubuntu Installation :: Maverick Installer Doesn't Recognize Existing Partition List?

Oct 13, 2010

I have been upgrading from 9.04 to 10.04. Now, I want to install 10.10 from the beginning without losing the data in my current partitions but when I run the Maverick installer it recognize my disk as a whole with no partitions. From another posts, I suspect that the problem is in the partition list because it seems to be a duplicate partition but don't know how to fix it. This is the fdisk output:

Code:
jgarcia@jgarcia-laptop:~$ sudo fdisk -lu /dev/sda
Disco /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes
255 cabezas, 63 sectores/pista, 30401 cilindros, 488397168 sectores en total

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Doesn't Recognize Windows 7 Partition - 10.10 Maverick User?

Dec 23, 2010

I recently have installed Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Netbook Edition in my personal netbook. The thing is that I had installed Windows 7 in the hard disk drive so I decided to install Ubuntu alongside with it. After the process of installation everything was cool but I hadn't the Grub working. I then pressed the Shift button during the booting process so I got the Grub menu but it didn't show the Windows 7 partition. The Windows installation was not erased because its file system is present in Nautilus. I have tried reinstalling the Grub a thousand times but nothing changes. I have attached the results of the boot info script so you can have some info about my booting configuration.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Messy Video Playback Also Appears When Use Cheese To Capture Video With My Webcam

Feb 26, 2010

video playback is like I have applied a blueish sepia filter over it. And this is just the playback from totem player or mplayer, and not the playback from ..... (and generally online streaming) - this works just fine. this messy video playback also appears when I use cheese to capture video with my webcam. Note that the preview picture of the video file on nautilus has the natural colours it should have.

at first when I installed the os this particular problem didn't exist, but it came up the time I decided to follow the "comprehensive multimedia guide". So now I have all the pros of following the guide, but this is a major con...

Debian Installation :: Grub2 Doesn't Recognize The UUIds - Invalid Signature

Aug 11, 2010

I have /dev/sda with Squeeze and Win 7 on it, and /dev/sdb with Squeeze. I've managed to get Grub 2 to boot from /dev/sdb1, but only by disabling /dev/sda from being a boot option in the BIOS. When it is available to boot, and lower priority than /dev/sdb, grub does not recognize the UUIds of the disks. So, I've disabled it for now and can boot from /dev/sdb no problems. Trouble is I cannot get Win7 to boot. Grub prints:

error: no such device: f0903a3a903a081c
error: invalid signature

When I boot into Squeeze and run 'blkid' I can see that:

/dev/sda1: LABEL="System Reserved" UUID="F0903A3A903A081C" TYPE="ntfs"

The Grub entry for Win 7 is:

menuentry "Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda1)" {
insmod ntfs
set root='(hd0,1)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set f0903a3a903a081c
chainloader +1
}

I don't understand how Grub 2 cannot recognize the UUIds. Can Grub 2 to be made to work with volume labels or just plain old /dev/... descriptions? Maybe I should give grub-legacy a go.

Ubuntu :: Flash Doesn't Load And The Light At My Webcam Doesn't Switch On At All

Jun 4, 2011

I've used this video conferencing web app on Windows 7 and it works perfectly. [URL] But I'm having flash problems. Flash doesn't load and the light at my webcam doesn't switch on at all. Things to note:Cheese works so I know my webcam in Ubuntu is functional. I've tried purging the flash plugin and reinstalling it. It doesn't work on Chrome and Firefox so it's definitely only a flash problem. I'm not using any medication so I know it isn't me just imagining it. EDIT: I checked out [URL] Here's a screenshot: [URL] I'll check back later, Charlie the Unicorn just rang my doorbell and invited me to tea on the magic hot air balloon. Definitely not hallucinating.

Ubuntu :: DELL 1536 - 32 Bit Or 64 Bit - Recognize The 1920x1200 Screen - Webcam - HDMI

Jan 28, 2010

I ordered a DELL studio 1536 with AMD turion rm-74 and vista preinstalled. Although it is still in production, I plan to install ubuntu on it and install an xp/vista guest in virtualbox. However, I am wondering if I can do it. There are many questions, partial answers are welcome:

1- Can ubuntu (32 bit or 64 bit) recognize the 1920x1200 screen, webcam, HDMI etc etc? any tricks if it can?

2- Is it possible that I ghost the vista so that I can restore it later in the virtualbox? and can I upgrade it to win7 from vbox? DELL says it is eligible for free upgrade, a very weird option nowadays.

3- To what extend will the guest OS control the machine? For example, is it possible to output a website video (e.g. live TV in bloomberg.com which is only available in windows) from the guest to the HDMI?
