Ubuntu Multimedia :: Enable Built-in Webcam On Asus 1005pe On 9.10?

Feb 10, 2010

I also posted this as a question in launchpad, but wasn't sure if this might be a better place. Pretty new to Ubuntu, if you couldn't tell.I just upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 and cheese/skype don't see the webcam built into my machine. It worked with Windows 7 that came with the computer, and in 9.04. I'm using a Asus 1005PE.

result from lsusb:
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Webcam In Skype - The Green Light Comes On By The Built In It?

Mar 19, 2011

I have a ASUS K52J.I tried cheese.It was initially upside down. Then I tried Video for linux device preferences.When I checked vertival flip, that fixed cheese. But it was still upside down in skype.I tried downloading skype from the webpage, and from synaptic.I tried running skype in sudo.I tried: export LIBV4LCONTROL_FLAGS=3 && L

D_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype but i get: ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored

and I tried: export LIBV4LCONTROL_FLAGS=3 && LD_PRELOAD=/usr/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.I tried this:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
When skype loads up, i go to the options>video>test. The green light comes on by the built in webcam, then i get a segmentation fault and skype crashes: /usr/local/bin/skype: line 2:4055 Segmentation fault LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /usr/bin/skype

Then I tried:LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so then running skype and i got the segmentation fault again.I may have missed some threads on this but everyone else seemed to be thanking someone for fixing their problem by now.Finally I tried threating my computer with a Windows installation. But I think both me and the computer knew it was a hollow threat,

Hardware :: Getting The Built-in Webcam To Work On An Asus X83Vb-X2 With Ubuntu 9.04?

Jun 29, 2009

I'm having trouble with the webcam on my laptop. This is a full-sized laptop, not one of the Eee models.I'm not entirely sure what the model or chipset of the webcam is, as there doesn't seem to be much documentation available (as far as I know, this is Asus' first foray into the laptop market in the US).

I previously had the camera working just fine in Windows Vista, so I know the hardware is just fine. I have tried several programs to get the device working, and some (Cheese, for example) are able to get the green light next to the camera to turn on. I've tried running a number of programs as both the normal user and as root, but I don't seem to be able to get the camera to output video. I didn't see any drivers on the Asus site. Is anyone able to lend a hand with this? I'm moving out of the country in a month, and would really love to be able to keep in touch with my family and friends over skype or something similar.

EDIT: In programs like Cheese, the webcam seems to be detected as "USB2.0 UVC PC Camera (/dev/video0)". I imagine it's a good sign that video0 is available.

Hardware :: Configure Multiple Soundcards (built-in Card And Webcam)?

Nov 17, 2009

I'm trying to add a webcam and it get's registered nicely. The problem is that after a reboot it registers as card 0, my internal card gets registered as card 1, and I lose all sound.

arecord -l without webcam:


card 0: default [PnP Audio Device ], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0


C-Media is the built-in soundcard and Philips is the webcam.why the built-in is registered as an usb-device but it is and external sources confirm that this is correct. According to the alsa project wiki the correct way to give two devices using the same module (such as two usb-devices) a specific index is to add something along the following in the main alsa configuration file.


options snd-usb-audio index=1,2 vid=0x0ccd,0x0d8c pid=0x0028,0x000c

As I use Debian Squeeze 64-bit with the odd package from sid and multimedia repository enabled I found that the correct file to add this in is /etc/modprobe.conf. I therefore added this:


options snd-usb-audio index=0,1 vid=0d8c,0471 pid=0201,0333

This corresponds to my hardwares' VID and PID. When I reboot I and do arecord -l I get:


arecord: device_list:223: no soundcards found...

As an alternative I tried to add this snippet to /etc/modprobe.d/sound instead but at boot I get the message that "vid 0d8c" is an invalid parameter. Well, it's not. It adds upp with the output from lsusb and the external source linked to above. Do I need to add that arecord -l tells me I have no soundcard?

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Laptop Webcam To Work / Resolve This?

Jul 28, 2010

I've been trying to get my built-in webcam to work for the past few hours and am completely stuck... Apparently I need a driver called uvcvideo, but I cant find it anywhere (its repos have been removed). I have installed Cheese and Camorama, neither of which work. Camorama throws this error when launched - "Could not connect to video device /dev/video0). Please check connection. Cheese launches, turns camera light on, shows a black screen for ~1 sec then closes.

The only way I can get the webcam to work is with a program called "guvcview" (light turns on and I can see preview), that's why I'm thinking I need the uvcvideo driver.

I've found various posts on how to install the uvcvideo driver, but I get an error on all its reposotory links - "reposotory not found". I also can't figure out how to install the EasyCam program, yet another repository error.

Does anyone know how to get built-in webcams working? I suspect it is due to my lack of driver, but I could be wrong. Lsusb detects the webcam as a Chicony Electronics Co. LTD Gateway USB 2.0 Webcam, so the kernel detects it, just no apps.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Webcam Works On Laptop Not On Desktop?

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 on both my laptop and desktop. I've gotten a Gigaware Webcam with Mic (Radio Shack) 25-157 camera to work out of the box on my Del E-1505, no problems. Even interfaces with Skype correctly.

On my desktop, though, the camera light comes on, the camera is recognized through lsusb:

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Make To Work An Integrated Webcam In A Laptop?

Nov 22, 2010

I have a Dell laptop studio 1735 with a integrated webcam. The webcam seems to be recognised without issue:

1) dmesg | grep Webcam


Product: Laptop_Integrated_Webcam_2M
uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device Laptop_Integrated_Webcam_2M (0c45:63fa)
input: Laptop_Integrated_Webcam_2M as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb2/2-5/2-5:1.0/input/input13

And in the Hardware Info applet I found the following:


: USB 00.0: 0000 Unclassified device
[Created at usb.122]
Unique ID: +rmv.ZLiQYW8YBnE


The manifacturer is:

manufacturer = "SONiX Technology Inc."

Do I have to install a special application? Or edit a configuration file in order to make it work?

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

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

and paste the following 2 line


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

NOTE: I am using the 64bit release.
