Hey Im running ubuntu 9.10 on my laptop and i wanted to use my eyetoy on my laptop. Anyway i plugged it in and all is well until check the feed and all the colours are messed up. I dont remember the last time i was blue :lolflag:. If anyone could shine some light on this then i will be thankfull.
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 got a laptop (core 2 duo, 2 GB ram) without a webcam and using Ubuntu v. 12.10 OS. As I wish to make skype video calls with my Family I wish to buy a webcam. My budget is low, so I can't spent a lot on it. As I haven't found any webcam suggestions for the Ubuntu 12.10 OS, but only for earlier OS versions, could you suggest me a webcam type(s) that I could use for skype v.
I was wondering...is there a GUI way to add drivers manually to Ubuntu. For example, lets say that I were to purchase a webcam that was not supported right out of the box in 9.04. What would I have to do to get that webcam working if the manufacturer offered a linux driver that was available online? Just curious.
I just bought a webcam Microsoft HD-3000 and ubuntu doesn't automatically detect the webcam.
Can someone point me to a resource where I can download the driver? A tutorial on how to install and configure the webcam would be really usefull?
since 12.10 packages like kubuntu-desktop are no longer in main, but
universe. If I remember correctly only main and restricted get LTS support
(I can't find any mention of this on the LTS Ubuntu wiki page, so maybe
things have changed/I am wrong).
