    Camera and microphone

    Hello,

    System 76 laptop with integrated camera and microphone, running Ubuntu 11.10. Started with 10.10 and have upgraded twice. I don't know if either of them ever worked, though I am assuming they did when it was purchased new almost one year ago.

    I want to use Skype, but neither device is working, and I have no software to check them. Can anyone tell me how to troubleshoot this to find out if they work or not, and how to "turn them on"? I can't find any installed software that uses a microphone or the camera.

    Code:
    dmesg returns:
    process `skype' is using obsolete setsockopt SO_BSDCOMPAT
    
    lsusb returns:
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0020 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
    Bus 002 Device 003: ID 413c:3200 Dell Computer Corp. Mouse
    Bus 002 Device 004: ID 147e:1000 Upek Biometric Touchchip/Touchstrip Fingerprint Sensor
    Bus 002 Device 005: ID 5986:0343 Acer, Inc
    Can't tell version information for Skype, but it is the newest, downloaded and installed today
    Thanks for whatever help you can offer.

    Not that anyone was clamoring to post answers, but I did get the devices working. The microphone was simply an input volume setting, and I turned the camera on by telling Skype to start video automatically.

    So false alarm, but thanks for reading.
