    Exclamation Dell Latitude E5430 Webcam not working

    Hello,

    I have a Dell Latitude E5430 Laptop running Ubuntu and I can't seem to get my integrated Webcam to work. I looked online and tried the following things with no success:


    • Check to see if device is recognized with lsusb
    • result:


    Code:
    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 001 Device 002: ID 0c45:6449  Microdia     <------------------------------------------ This is  my webcam
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 80ee:0021 VirtualBox USB Tablet
    After I did that I downloaded an application called Cheese. When I ran the program the LED on my webcam turns on denoting that its being used but the screen on cheese stays black no matter what I do


    After that I tried the line gstreamer-properties from the command prompt. I got a window and switched to the video tab. I tried video for linux2(v4l2) and chose my webcam from the dropdown list. When I pressed test a small box appeared that said testing. My webcam's LED turned on again but no picture is shown. I tried mixing the settings but nothing worked.

    Next I tried using a program called guvcview. Again The LED turns on but there is no picture. Here is the output from the command prompt:

     Could not grab image (select timeout): Resource temporarily unavailable (this repeats over and over)

    I also tried entering the line webcam in the terminal.

    here is the output


    Code:

      input (null), norm (null), jpeg quality 75
      rotate=0, top=0, left=0, bottom=240, right=320

    The Webcam's LED turns on but there is no picture

    Lastly I tried running the line Dmesg.

    I will paste that last since it was long. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?

    Re: Dell Latitude E5430 Webcam not working

    Hi, welcome to the fora.

    Guvcview 1.5.3 seems to indicate that you are on Buntu 12.04, which is a fairly old release considered how new the computer is.

    You might find better hardware support in later releases. How does the webcam work in a live boot of 13.10 beta?

    Thanks for your suggestion. I tried installing 13.10. I actually got some results with guvcviewer this time, unfortunately they aren't much better.

    Here is what I tried:



    retried cheese. The result was the same, My webcam's light turns on but nothing is shown on screen

    Code:
    miguel@miguel-VirtualBox:~$ cheese
    
    (cheese:6434): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-widgets.css:1605:38: '' is not a valid color name
    
    (cheese:6434): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-widgets.css:1605:38: '' is not a valid color name
    I tried gstreamer-properties. The result was the same.

    output
    Code:
    miguel@miguel-VirtualBox:~$ gstreamer-properties
    
    (gstreamer-properties:6531): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-widgets.css:1605:38: '' is not a valid color name

    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'sunaudiosrc'

    Lastly I tried guvcviewer. The only setting that seemed to work was mjpg, but the picture only output every few frames with garbage in between. In addition to that, I tried using all of the codecs listed under the video settings. The result seems to be the same no matter which codec I choose, although some codecs seem to run faster than others. Here is the terminal output.

    Code:
    miguel@miguel-VirtualBox:~$ guvcview

    I did notice the Inappropriate ioctl for device message in the terminal output. Could that have something to do with it?

    Re: Dell Latitude E5430 Webcam not working

    I can't answer that, sorry.

    Do you feel like discussing the bug in the development forum and after that perhaps report it in Launchpad? A bug report based upon 13.10 is likely to get more attention than 12.04.
