http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am running Linux Mint, but i think this issue will be mutual with Ubuntu. My webcam in Skype is upside down (in Cheese it's ok). There are a lot of topics dealing with this coming up with fix like this: $ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype or similar modifications. Unfortunately, I don't have this file. $ locate v4l1compat.so outputs only: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so which doesn't work: $ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so' from LD_PRELOAD (HowTos)
