http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all, wondering if anyone could help with a problem which has me driven to distraction. :( Recently installed 12.04 onto a Dell Mini 10v (1011) all went fine until I went to test the webcam. Whether I use cheese, skype, gucview, lucview I get no image just darkness. If pointed directly to a bright light source it displays a vague image. Things done: - Lsusb detect webcam: Bus 001 Device 002: ID 174f:1403 Syntek Integrated Webcam - Uvcvideo mod detects webcam and loads Lsmod output: uvcvideo 67203 0 videodev 86588 1 uvcvideo video 19068 1 i91 (Hardware)
