View Full Version : [ubuntu] Webcam and microphone do not work on ubuntu 12.04

Hi everybody,

I'm opening a new thread quite similar to the previous one because it's been more than 2 days without any answer and I didn't know how to make other people answer without opening a new discussion!!!!!

(And I'm really desperate with this problem!!!!!)

about a week ago I installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my personal computer, everything works just fine except the webcam. I have two different webcams, one really old Logitech and the other a bit newer Trust both of them with the integrated microphone.

I tried to follow several different guide and threads in order to fix this problem, but without any success!!!

In particular the Logitech's webcam does not work at all, the Trust's webcam works the video but even after a lot of try the microphone (the most important part!!!) does not work either with skype or sound recorder.

The audio settings seem to be all right either on pulse audio control and on alsamixer!! I do not know what to do anymore!!!

On windows xp both the webcams work perfectly with any software (skype, sound recorder and video recorder).

Any help will be appreciate!!


P.S: I've already checked and there are not mute channels in alsamixer!!!!!
