Hi, I cannot find an updated driver for a webcam Logitech Quickcam E 2500 webcam. It doesn't work with Cheese nor does it work with Skype. I'm using Lubuntu 12.04 LTS. I have tried the packages qc-usb-utils (utility programs for the QuickCam Express driver) & qc-usb-source (source for the QuickCam Express driver) without a result.
Webcam stopped working in skype 2.2., it works in cheese, "system/preference/sound"(to turn on microphone) shows the webcam, skype "options/video devices" shows webcam- but 'test' just has a black screen. During calls, the other party sees my avatar image, I see incoming video. The blog/forum suggestions are mostly for Ubuntu 11 & 12.
I have a Logitech C510 webcam connected to my desktop running 64-bit Ubuntu 11.10, but it doesn't seem to be working when I run Cheese and Skype. After doing some search, it seems this webcam should just work out of the box. However, Cheese and Skype don't seem to work with it.
I got Dell mini 910, since I upgraded from 12.04 Ubuntu to 14.04, webcam does not work with Skype. I click on Skype > option > video Devices > Select Video > integrated Webcam > (/dev/video0). When I am this point, webcam turns on and takes my photo, but as soon as I close this window, webcam shuts down, and webcam in Skype does not work. It used to work with 12.04.
