Hey guys and girls,
I have just installed ubuntu on my new Asus K40AB and everything works except the webcam. After a little searching I tried to install easycam2, but it did not install some of the modules. it gave some errors.
Now the cam works, however it is upside down.
I am quite new with ubuntu and am not sure if the tricks given in the forum also work for me.
I'm running the latest version of Ubuntu, and I have a Dell Sp2009wfd monitor with built in microphone and webcam. I've gotten the microphone working on mumble and on sound recorder, and I've gotten the webcam to work on Cheese...but it WON'T work through the flash player//website webcam things. I -have- the flash plugin, and I have drivers installed for my video card.
I have a Dell XPS M1530 that originally came with Ubuntu (back in 2006 or so). The Webcam has always worked out of the box in Cheese, Skype, etc. I don't use it regularly, but I had tested it before. I recently tried it after upgrading to Ubuntu 12.04, and I'm getting a black screen in every application I try.
I have a webcam that works fine in software such as camorama and cheese. However, I cannot use it in websites that allow you to use a webcam (it's not recognized). I'm using Chromium 34.0 with Flash Player 11.2. It didn't work on Iceweasel either. Chromium doesn't seem to recognize the webcam either:
Funny thing is, the mic it recognizes is the webcam's microphone!
I hope this isn't too off-topic....my experiences with Ubuntu have been really great, but I've fallen into a pattern where either something works great by default (which is awesome), or it doesn't. When it doesn't, I Google the problem and randomly copy/paste solutions until it works.
I have read a few posts re. upside down cameras but couldn't find a solution, I've also tried one script from a Ubuntu forum. It didn't work. Do you know hot to flip the image? I'm running openSUSE 11.2 on Asus UL30A.
I am having some problems with youtube videos on my computer right now, sometimes they're skipping and whatnot. I also am trying to hook my computer up to a tv and mirroring displays doesn't work and even at times sharing between my monitor and tv has problems.
