    Exclamation Aspire One: Webcam doesn't work in skype

    Hi,

    I'm a fresh guy in ubuntu. It looks interesting since ubuntu 11.10 runs really nice on my wife's Acer Aspire One netbook. But I've recently got sudden bug: inbuilt webcam has disappeared from Skype showing "No Devices Found" though it was before.

    lsusb gives just
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

    Thank you in advance

    Don't know about the camera problem, but is your mic also not working in Skype? If yes, does the problem occur only in Skype or elsewere as well? Take a look at this thread here:

    Try to switch off one of your two speakers by setting the sound balance far left or far right.
    If your mic will work, then download and install from ubuntu software center the "pulse audio volume control".

    Open it. Go to the 4th tab (input devices), press the little button with a lock on it (so as to unlock the two channels from moving together), and switch off completely one of the two channels.

    You can then set back your overall sound balance as it was before so as to get sound from both of your speakers.

    This should do the trick.
