http://askubuntu.com – My webcam has been working fine until today on my Thinkpad X300 running Ubuntu 11.04. I was able to use skype and as well as google video chat. Suddenly video is not working. However, audio is fine on skype. I have just observed that there is no video directory under /dev. Please help me to fix this problem. Please find details of my machine below. $ uname -a Linux name-thinkpad 2.6.38-15-generic-pae #60-Ubuntu SMP Tue May 22 11:48:17 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux $lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile PM965/GM965/GL960 Memory Controller Hub (rev 0c) 00:02.0 VGA compatible (HowTos)
