    Integrated Webcam Not Found After Updates

    I have looked through the forums, but cannot find an answer, so I apologize if this is easy.

    I had just finished an online tutoring session with my webcam about an hour ago, then automatically installed 11 new updates that were ready to be installed. I went back on to start a new session, and for some reason my webcam can no longer found anywhere (Cheese, gstreamer-properties, websites, etc).

    I have a Dell E6400 with 12.04. I had no problems before the updates. This is obviously a HUGE problem as I need the webcam for these sessions. Thanks!

    I just grabbed a backup old USB webcam to test it out, and it worked fine.

    I have the same problem, my webcam isn't working for some reason, cheese can no longer take photos or video through the integrated webcam. And if I try to log in to online sessions I get error message of no webcam found. Mine is a Samsung NP350 running 12.04

    If a bug has been introduced to 12.04 you can't be sure it will be fixed. 14.04 is on the way, and developers are changing focus.
    While you wait for a fix to (maybe) come up you could try a live boot of 13.10.

    I am confused. What is the point of "LTS" if support is only given for the first 2 years of the 5?

    Support means that security bugs are fixed. Non-security bugs may or may not.

    In general people should be better in abandoning old versions, supported or not, and install new ones in stead, especially when a problem appears.

    OK, that makes sense about security updates.

    Dowiro: I went into Grub (holding Shift while booting), and just selected the option to use a previous kernel. Problem solved for me until 14.04 is ready (couldn't use Final Beta due to bugs, but they look like they are solved).

    EDIT: I am using 3.8.0 now.

    That's a good idea. When a new kernel arrives you can check if the bug has been fixed.

    Please mark the thread 'solved'.

    So I have been using 14.04 since the day it came out, and everything worked great. Just updated the system, restarted, and integrated webcam is out again.

    This is ridiculous.
