Hello everybody,
I have an old DELL Latitude D610, which had a re-birth with the brand-new ubuntu 10.04.
And the webcam video does not work.
I still have the audio from it (as Sound panel tells me in the "preferences" menu), but the video under Skype is a big bug.
The webcam is a Logitech Notebook Deluxe, which is not supported any more on Logitech website.
I have checked the following thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=993262, but the trick does not work - and I tested the Cheese Webcam Booth, I get a black window which does not refresh when I drag other windows over it. However, Cheese detects the resolution of the webcam, since I can choose it in the Preferences menu.
If anyone can help ! or redirect me...
cheers,
F
