okay, I have been trying to figure this out for two days. I am kind of a noob, so bear with me. I'm on Ubuntu trying to get my cam set up and working with Cam4 temporarly(yes, I am a cam girl, I know, I know lol).
I have Acer Aspire 5515 series laptop which has webcam built-in.
When i open cheese - it says "no device found".
camorama says: "Could not connect to video device. Please check connection".
Neither lspci nor lsusb contain any records that can be webcam.....
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.
Wondering if some one can point me toward ubuntu drivers that will work with an acer aspire's web cam, since I have put ubuntu 9.04 on this machine the web cam does not work or can I activate it, a good indication that there is a problem is the green led that indicates the webcam is active is always on.I have tried a couple of drivers that are available from other open source driver sites but none
