    I have recently installed 9.10 and I hit the same problem on my Inspiron 1525 laptop with integrated webcam but these two commands from micdhack (thanks) did the job

    Code:
    sudo rmmod uvcvideo
    sudo modprobe uvcvideo
    Ubuntu 64 bit

    yeah....

    rmmod + modprobe worked fine.

    hopefully they'll find the little bug that needs killing soon

    ciao!

    Re: Restart required for webcam to work; how to manually restart?

    I want to disable my system camera so i am blacklisting it in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf using command "blacklist uvcvideo".
    But I want my external camera to work instead of that which works with the same command "sudo modprobe uvcvideo".So whenever i am giving this command ,system's camera also gets enabled which i dont want.

    So is there any way I can pass the parameter in that command to disable the system camera permanently.
