    webcam on PanP6

    Hello,

    I have a PanP6 purchased in Dec 2009. Everything has been great. I installed ubuntu 12.04 and cant seem to get the webcam to show up. I tried the Fn Keys. I also tried a few commands and their output suggests that the device is not even being detected (I dont recall the exact commands tried.) My question is, if it is a matter of drivers, what do you recommend?

    Also, I have two other unrelated questions, do you prefer if I open a thread for each questions (better indexing) or just ask everything in one place? Thanks!

    What software are you trying to get the webcam to work with? Does the file /dev/video0 exist on your system?

    I have been trying with cheese. I also tried the tests in

    Code:
     gstreamer-properties
    and that did not detect it either. Most tutorials I saw said to try v4l1 and v4l2 but I only had v4l2 as a choice.

    The file /dev/video0 does not exist. Thanks!

    Re: webcam on PanP6

    sounds like a hardware issue, have you tried contacting system76 directly?

    I wanted to make sure it was hardware before I contacted them, since, if its a hardware issue, fixing it will probably involve shipping the machine, and I cant do that. right now. Oh well... I'll mark the thread as solved. Thanks!
