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.
Can't tell version information for Skype, but it is the newest, downloaded and installed today
process `skype' is using obsolete setsockopt SO_BSDCOMPAT
