View Full Version : [ubuntu] Webcam and finger reader support?

October 16th, 2009, 06:34 PM
Will the new Karmic allow me to use the built in webcam and finger scanner on my sony sz120? I know, I know, this has been done. I have tried installing this many times with drivers I found before, but the truth is, those two items have never really worked on the laptop. Even when I tried tweaking them. I've always wanted to use skype with video, but even a regular usb camera on the desktop had problems. Okay it was just a very basic web cam, but still. I'll just wait for the final release of this one and we'll see, but if you got yours working, please chime in.

I did a clean install of the new Ubuntu 9.10 on the laptop and the webcam and finger reader is still a no go. Man I would like to use skype with this thing. With the webcam. :)
