For 32bit, the mic worked, but I did do a dist-upgrade rather than a fresh install. Check out the old 7.10 mic fix for the 1520, it may work for you. Just do a forum search, it's there.

I haven't got the webcam to work yet. I'm in the same boat you're there, chum! I know the cam is there and recognized because it lights up, and the bootup did not show even a failed query like it did with 7.10.

For me, the web cam worked in 32-bit,since Skype can use it.
Also, when I go on Facebook, it also works.

However, camorama doesn't work and neither does cheese.

I have followed many tutorials without success.

I have even tried to compile Camorama, but that was unsuccessful due to me missing something.

I hope as time goes on someone will make a driver.

It will be working for sure 2 years from now if all goes well, maybe even sooner.
