    Question Webcam problem in Ubuntu 11.10

    I have webcam Genius Eye 312, and i try to get it to work properly on Ubuntu 11.10.

    Cheese recognize webcam, but Skype don't, and that is most important, i need it for Skype and Gtalk. How to configure/fix that bug ?

    i tried with

    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so /usr/bin/skype
    - that work in 11.04 but here... nope

    write in empty document:

    #!/bin/sh
    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libv4l/v4l1compat.so skype
    And set in permissions : Allow file executing as a program.


    Every time you need to click run... because they will ask you some things (open in console, open in notepad, run) you click run and skype will be opened without console. It's not the best way but i do that.

    Re: Webcam problem in Ubuntu 11.10

    Hi,

    My webcam works with Skype and Cheese but my face is blue. (In real life I am a normal person) It was not like this before 11.10.

    How can I correct this?

    Many Thanks

    Thanks for the tip. Now I am not a green-blue person with guvcview. How can I make Skype use it?
